CFP: Visualizing Electronic Health Record Data (Workshop)
http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/parisehrvis
Co-located with the IEEE VIS 2014 Conference (Paris, 9-14 November 2014)

Organizers: Catherine Plaisant, Silvia Miksch, Theresia Gschwandtner, Sana
Malik
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The submission deadline has been EXTENDED to August 31st - to align with
the other VIS workshops

Electronic Health Record (EHR) databases contain millions of
patient records including events such as diagnoses, test results, or
medication prescriptions. These records are an invaluable data source for
clinical research and improvement of clinical quality, as they provide
longitudinal health information about patient populations. The use of EHR
databases could be dramatically improved if easy-to-use interfaces allowed
clinical researchers and quality improvement analysts to explore complex
patterns in order to build and test hypotheses regarding the benefits,
risks, and appropriateness of treatments or medication regimens.

Novel strategies in information visualization and visual analytics
are needed. The interest in this topic is growing at a very rapid pace and
is interdisciplinary by nature, both in term of field (medicine
and computer science) but also research environment (academic research as
well as industry and government agencies). Because of the European location
of the conference, we have a unique opportunity to create bridges and
explore new collaborations between groups that would not meet otherwise.

Dates:
    Deadline:     AUGUST 31st 2014 (submit short paper to present)
    Notification: SEPTEMBER 15th 2014
    Workshop:   NOVEMBER 9 or 10 (to be finalized by VIS committee)

To participate: the workshop is open to all VIS 2014 attendees
