Call for Papers

11th International Workshop on Knowledge Representation for Health Care (KRH4C)


12th International Workshop on Process-oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth)

Organized as One Full Day Workshop

Acronym: KR4HC-ProHealth 2019

Poznan, Poland; June 29, 2019

In conjunction with the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME2019)

Web site:

Submission site:

In the last years we have witnessed the increasing advances and continuous incorporation of computer technologies for knowledge representation and process modeling to improve health care and to provide high-quality modern clinical services.

These technologies remain at the very core of other medical informatics areas such as decision support systems, e-health, m-health, smart health, simulation, clinical alarm systems, electronic health care records, patient-centered care, modeling, standardization, and quality assessment.

The Joint International Workshop KR4HC-ProHealth in 2019 is the seventh time that two separate research communities merge to address common medical issues, to discuss about new trends, and to propose solutions to health care issues by means of the integration of knowledge representation and process management technologies as a contribution of the advance of medical informatics.

Format of the Workshop

The 1-day workshop will comprise accepted long and short papers, tool presentations, and one keynote. Prof. Wojtek Michalowski, from the University of Ottawa, Canada, has agreed to give the keynote.

Papers should be submitted in advance and will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Informal proceedings will be available during the workshop. At least one author for each accepted paper should register for the workshop and present the paper. The selected best long (full) papers will be included in the formal proceedings, which are expected to be published as part of the LNAI Springer series, as it was done in all previous editions of the workshop.


The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to the following areas:

  • Knowledge and process modeling in health care
  • Computer-interpretable clinical guidelines and protocols for decision support
  • Workflow management in healthcare
  • Semantic interoperability in health care
  • Health care data standards for interoperability
  • Knowledge representation and ontologies for health care
  • Temporal knowledge representations and exploitation in health care
  • Facilitating acquisition of health care knowledge
  • Visualization, monitoring, and mining health care processes
  • Knowledge extraction from health care databases and electronic health records
  • Combination, personalization, and adaptation of health care knowledge
  • Adherence to/compliance with health care recommendations and recommended care processes
  • Quality models for the evaluation of ontologies
  • Evaluation of quality and safety of care flow systems
  • Managing flexibility and exceptions in health care
  • Process optimization and simulation in health care organizations and networks
  • Experiences in deploying knowledge-based tools in health care
  • Knowledge representation and process-oriented systems for patient empowerment
  • Decision support technologies for multimorbid and co-morbid patients
  • Linking clinical care and clinical research
  • Lifecycle management for health care processes
  • Context-aware health care processes
  • Modeling and simulation of health care knowledge
  • Ambient intelligence & smart processes in health care
  • Process interoperability & standards in health care
  • Process-oriented system architectures in health care

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only papers in English will be accepted. Three types of submissions are possible: (1) full papers (12 pages long) reporting mature research results, (2) position papers reporting research that may be in preliminary stage not yet been evaluated, and (3) tool reports. Position papers and tool reports should be no longer than 6 pages. Papers must present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere.

Papers should be submitted in the LNCS format. The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an indication of the submission category (regular paper, position paper, or tool report).

Papers (in PDF format) should be submitted electronically via the Easychair system.
