ACM 1st International Workshop on Knowledge Management for Healthcare
(KMH) October 26, 2018
Joint Summit with the ACM 12th International Workshop on Data and Text
Mining in Biomedical Informatics (DTMBio)
In conjunction with ACM 27th Conference on Information and Knowledge
Lingotto, Turin, Italy, October 22 – October 26, 2018
Information and communication technologies (ICT) are widely used within
health care, and they are playing an increasingly important role in the
practice of medicine and in clinical research in a variety of scenarios,
– Smart healthcare systems are used for primary prevention purposes, with
ICT solutions being employed for monitoring users’ activities and habits in
order to infer the probability or likelihood of chronic disease onset.
– Knowledge-based data management solutions provide efficient
representations of information (i.e. personal clinical data, documents and
images content, etc.) enabling the construction of smart systems and
ensuring the interoperability between healthcare platforms.
– Integrated knowledge-based business process solutions in organizational
frameworks to support the monitoring and optimizing of processes
implemented within healthcare organizations.
However, the lack of integration and semantic interoperability in
healthcare information systems is the primary cause for limited efficient
and effective digital solutions, which challenges the ability of the
healthcare industry to reach its primary goal, i.e. to supply continuous
care that is personalized for each patient and to put new knowledge into
practice by translating clinical research results from “bench to bedside”.
The workshop on Knowledge Management Technologies for Healthcare aims cover
a wide spectrum of topics concerned with the integration of knowledge
management technologies within the healthcare domain including, communities
of practice and social networks, analytics and engagement with tracking and
monitoring wearable devices, big data, public health surveillance,
persuasive technologies, epidemic intelligence, participatory surveillance,
and emergency medicine.

*** Submission Guidelines ***
Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts electronically in PDF
format using the ACM camera-ready templates (available at the ACM official
web site or KMH web site).
- Full papers: Submissions must describe substantial completed work. Full
papers may consist of up to six (6) pages with the possibility of having a
seventh page containing only references. Full papers will be presented at
- Short papers: Short papers will be presented at the workshop, and will be
given three (3) pages in the proceedings with the possibility of having a
fourth page containing only references.
- Posters: We solicit quality posters that describe previously published or
unpublished work. Posters will be presented at the workshop in a shared
lightning talk session with the DTMBio Workshop (~5 mins for each poster).
All papers (in PDF format) should be submitted on Easychair (
Selected full papers (~8 papers) will be invited for a top-ranked journal
(to be announced).
