11th International Workshop on Knowledge Representation for Health Care


12th International Workshop on Process-oriented Information Systems in
Healthcare (ProHealth)

Organized as One Full Day Workshop

Acronym: KR4HC-ProHealth 2019

Poznan, Poland; June 29, 2019

In conjunction with the International Conference on *Artificial
Intelligence in Medicine (AIME2019)*

Submission site:

In the last years we have witnessed the increasing advances and continuous
incorporation of computer technologies for knowledge representation and
process modeling to improve health care and to provide high-quality modern
clinical services.

These technologies remain at the very core of other medical informatics
areas such as decision support systems, e-health, m-health, smart health,
simulation, clinical alarm systems, electronic health care records,
patient-centered care, modeling, standardization, and quality assessment.

The Joint International Workshop KR4HC-ProHealth in 2019 is the seventh
time that two separate research communities merge to address common medical
issues, to discuss about new trends, and to propose solutions to health
care issues by means of the integration of knowledge representation and
process management technologies as a contribution of the advance of medical

*Format of the Workshop*

The 1-day workshop will comprise accepted long and short papers, tool
presentations, and one keynote. Prof. Wojtek Michalowski, from the
University of Ottawa, Canada, has agreed to give the keynote.

Papers should be submitted in advance and will be reviewed by at least
three members of the program committee. Informal proceedings will be
available during the workshop. At least one author for each accepted paper
should register for the workshop and present the paper. The selected best
long (full) papers will be included in the formal proceedings, which are
expected to be published as part of the LNAI Springer series, as it was
done in all previous editions of the workshop.


The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to the following

   - Knowledge and process modeling in health care
   - Computer-interpretable clinical guidelines and protocols for decision
   - Workflow management in healthcare
   - Semantic interoperability in health care
   - Health care data standards for interoperability
   - Knowledge representation and ontologies for health care
   - Temporal knowledge representations and exploitation in health care
   - Facilitating acquisition of health care knowledge
   - Visualization, monitoring, and mining health care processes
   - Knowledge extraction from health care databases and electronic health
   - Combination, personalization, and adaptation of health care knowledge
   - Adherence to/compliance with health care recommendations and
   recommended care processes
   - Quality models for the evaluation of ontologies
   - Evaluation of quality and safety of care flow systems
   - Managing flexibility and exceptions in health care
   - Process optimization and simulation in health care organizations and
   - Experiences in deploying knowledge-based tools in health care
   - Knowledge representation and process-oriented systems for patient
   - Decision support technologies for multimorbid and co-morbid patients
   - Linking clinical care and clinical research
   - Lifecycle management for health care processes
   - Context-aware health care processes
   - Modeling and simulation of health care knowledge
   - Ambient intelligence & smart processes in health care
   - Process interoperability & standards in health care
   - Process-oriented system architectures in health care

*Paper Submission*

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in any of
the areas listed above. Only papers in English will be accepted. Three
types of submissions are possible: (1) full papers (12 pages long)
reporting mature research results, (2) position papers reporting research
that may be in preliminary stage not yet been evaluated, and (3) tool
reports. Position papers and tool reports should be no longer than 6 pages.
Papers must present original research contributions not concurrently
submitted elsewhere.

Papers should be submitted in the LNCS format
The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the
topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an
indication of the submission category (regular paper, position paper, or
tool report).

Papers (in PDF format) should be submitted electronically via the Easychair
