Call for Papers:

The 2016 Workshop on Visual Analytics in Healthcare (VAHC 2016) is the
seventh 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.
