Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 20, 2018. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting Description

The field of health informatics is inherently interdisciplinary and it deals with the acquisition, transmission, processing, management and use of information to improve health and quality of life, respond to public health emergencies, and realize the 8P's medicine that is predictive, preventive, precise, pervasive, participatory, preemptive, personalized, patent-centralized. Health informatics has been listed as one of 14 grand challenges in engineering in the 21st century by the US National Academy of Engineering.

The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Advanced Health Informatics (AHI2018) is inspired by a new healthcare trend moving from reactive medicine to 8P's medicine that promotes the early diagnosis and early treatment of chronic diseases. This healthcare trend introduces new challenges in data acquisition, big data management and information fusion, which are pushing the momentum for a new generation of health information systems with novel sensors and imaging devices that are economically affordable and technically feasible. The AHI2018 program is forward looking and it will feature wearable and implantable technologies, high resolution medical imaging, cardiovascular health informatics, and AI applications. We will explore the most recent advances in unobtrusive sensing and molecular imaging, while debating how the rapid development and application of AI including deep learning can impact the diseases diagnosis and clinical decision-support solutions. The AHI2018 will provide a forum for thorough discussions on advanced health informatics among both established experts and junior scientists from different disciplines, with either academia or industrial backgrounds.

In addition, for the first time, a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) will be organized immediately before AHI2018 for graduate students and junior researchers to exchange ideas and discuss career opportunities with their peers. All conferees are encouraged to submit and present posters, highlighting work that has not been previously published to a significant extent. A few of the best poster abstracts will be selected for short oral presentations at AHI2018.

Related Meeting

This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Advanced Health Informatics" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
