The purpose of the International Conference on Health Informatics is to
bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application
of information and communication technologies (ICT) to healthcare and
medicine in general and to the specialized support to persons with special
needs in particular.

Databases, networking, graphical interfaces, intelligent decision support
systems and specialized programming languages are just a few of the
technologies currently used in medical informatics. Mobility and ubiquity in
healthcare systems, standardization of technologies and procedures,
certification, privacy are some of the issues that medical informatics
professionals and the ICT industry in general need to address in order to
further promote ICT in healthcare. In the case of medical rehabilitation and
assistive technology the use of ICT has had important results in the
enhancement of the quality of life, contributing to a full integration of
all citizens in the societies they are also part of.

HEALTHINF is a forum for debating all these aspects. Furthermore, this
conference is also a meeting place for those interested in understanding the
human and social implications of technology, not only in healthcare systems
but in other aspects of human-machine interaction such as accessibility


HEALTHINF encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics
indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques,
advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or survey papers,
reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted
papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and
published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance
and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers.

Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for
further information on how to propose a special session. 




HEALTHINF 2013 is part of the International Joint Conference on Biomedical
Engineering Systems and Tecnologies (BIOSTEC 2013) that has 3 more
conferences with very strong synergies between them, namely:


- BIODEVICES: International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices


- BIOINFORMATICS: International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods
and Algorithms (http://www.bioinformatics.biostec.org)


- BIOSIGNALS: International Conference on Bio-inspired Systems and Signal
Processing (http://www.biosignals.biostec.org)


These four concurrent conferences are held in parallel and registration to
one warrants delegates to attend all four.


BIOSTEC Keynote Speakers


Pedro Gómez Vilda, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain

Christian Jutten, GIPSA-lab, France

Adam Kampff, Champalimaud Foundation, Portugal




All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the
conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/).

SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and
extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a
CCIS Series book.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.



Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
