EXTENDED CALL FOR PAPERS, POSTERS, AND DEMONSTRATIONS:

Workshop on Visual Analytics in Healthcare (VAHC)
(In conjunction with IEEE VIS 2015, Oct 25th, Chicago, IL)


Website: www.visualanalyticshealthcare.org



*** Extended paper submission deadline: July 31st, 2015 ***



CALL FOR PAPERS:
----------------
The 2015 Workshop on Visual Analytics in Healthcare (VAHC 2015) is the 
sixth annual workshop that provides an opportunity for participants to 
discuss state-of-the-art data visualization techniques and review how 
such techniques can be applied to healthcare data. The primary objective 
of the annual workshop is to bring together medical experts, leading 
scientists, and visionaries to discuss visualization techniques that can 
be applied to healthcare data and discuss the areas of healthcare that 
need more attention from the visualization and visual data mining 
communities. The workshop will allow participants to showcase their 
ongoing work on visual analytics of healthcare-related data through 
podium, posters, or demo presentations as well as to learn more about 
emerging techniques, software applications, and datasets.

This year the VAHC 2015 workshop is co-located with the IEEE VIS 
conference in Chicago, Illinois. To formalize the community, the VAHC 
workshop and the workshop on Visualizing Electronic Health Record Data 
-- EHRVis (www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/parisehrvis/) have merged and plan on 
hosting events at IEEE VIS and the American Medical Informatics 
Association (AMIA) Annual Symposium, alternating yearly.


TOPICS AND SCOPE:
------------------
We will welcome discussions of the use of visual approaches, interaction 
design, statistical methods, and machine learning for healthcare data 
analysis. Participants may address the needs of a variety of users, 
including clinical researchers, epidemiologists, public health analysts, 
pharmaco-vigilance experts, physicians, hospital-based quality assurance 
officers, insurance claim analysts, and patients.
Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
* Visual Analytics of health data (e.g., in surgery, radiology, 
Electronic Health Records, emergency room and operation room, patient 
safety, Public Health Data, patient-generated health data, clinical 
data, drugs)
* Visual Analytics for forecasting and tracking of health data (e.g., 
pandemic forecasting and tracking, outcome forecasting or prediction)
* Improving patient understanding and/or physician-patient communication 
with Visual Analytics
* Dashboards for health data (e.g., Public Health Surveillance programs)



PAPER SUBMISSION AND FORMAT GUIDELINES:
---------------------------------------
We encourage a diverse range of submissions and demonstrations from 
academic, healthcare organizations, and industry that addresses any of 
the topics listed above.  Submissions can be for (1) paper / podium 
presentations, (2) poster presentations, or (3) live & interactive 
demonstrations.

- Paper: Papers are limited to eight pages. Accepted papers will be
