The aging population phenomenon together with community based care models is driving the need for healthcare to seek support for the capture, collection, transmission, real time assessment, storage and data mining of data presented as data streams. A plethora of medical devices in healthcare facilities, within the home and even within clothing is generating data streams at frequencies up to 1000 readings a second. Services Computing has been described as a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services supported by Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), transformation and integration. Healthcare is often perceived to lag behind other industry sectors in its uptake and adoption of new technology. Opportunities abound for the unique aspects of data stream models in healthcare to drive fundamental computing and IT research together with leading applied research within the healthcare domain.
This special track invites papers with research contributions in the domain of Services Oriented Architectures for Data Streams in Healthcare. The topics include but are not limited to:
* Trends and Challenges of SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare
* Barriers to adoption of SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare * SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare Methodologies * Legal and Regulatory requirements concerning SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare * New models of healthcare delivery supported by SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare
* Services performance issues (e.g. Availability, Reliability and Security) * Management and monitoring of SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare * The integration of patient journey modeling with SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare
* Case Studies in SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare
No hardcopy submissions are being accepted. Electronic submissions of original technical research papers will only be accepted in PDF format. Use a maximum of 6 pages IEEE two-column format, including figures and references. All submissions will be done electronically via the CBMS 2009 web submission system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ieeecbms2009). Select the track "SOA for Data Streams in Healthcare", provide the information about the paper title, authors, keywords, and corresponding author's information (telephone, fax, mailing address, e-mail address). Please note that author names should not appear on the paper. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper at the CBMS 2009 Symposium. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Selected papers from the track will be published in Special Issue of International Journal of Healthcare Information Systems and Informatics (IJHISI) in 2010.
