Big Data Analytic Technology For Bioinformatics and Health Informatics Workshop 
(KDDBHI 2016) 

 In conjunction with 2016 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2016)

Workshop Motivation

This will be the third annual KDDBHI workshop continuing on the success of two prior workshops. The length of the workshop is half day. The first KDDBHI workshop is debuted at KDD 2014, New York, NY. The 2nd KDDBHI workshop is held in conjunction with ACM BCB 2015 conference, Atlanta, GA. In the third workshop, besides the topics and themes in two prior workshops, we intend to attract research and applications of big data analytics for precision medicine, in particular, the integration and fabrication of big data from patient gene sequencing, patient life style and socio-economic data, medical records, drug design and targeting, and population level drug treatment, and medical and pharmacy claims.

The emerging fusion of Bioinformatics and Health Informatics has promoted research in target drug, personalized medicine, clinical decision support and population health management, etc. and collaborations among researchers in bioinformatics and health informatics and clinicians as well as data scientists. It also demands big data analytics incorporating latest advancement in data mining, machine learning and statistical methodologies. Obama’s Precision Medicine Initiative promotes more investment and research in precision medicine, an innovative approach to disease prevention and treatment that takes into account individual differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles. In turn, it also creates higher demands for big data analytics for connecting genetic data, personal gene data, drug information, medical record, and clinical outcomes.

The goal of this workshop to provide a platform for professionals, researchers, clinicians, and data scientists to share opinions and exchange ideas, so as to facilitate fusion of Bioinformatics, Health Informatics, Precision Medicine, and Population Health. Ultimately it contributes to better quality of life of patients and healthier population as well as big data analytic technology advancements that support and promote such research activities.
