Third International Symposium on
Foundations of Health Information Engineering and Systems

International Institute for Software Technology
United Nations University, Macau
21st-23rd August, 2013


The purpose of the symposium series on Foundations of Health Information Engineering and Systems is to promote a nascent research area that aims to develop and apply theories and methods from a variety of disciplines for the purpose of modeling, building and certifying software-intensive ICT systems in healthcare. A particular objective of FHIES is to explicitly include a focus on healthcare ICT applications in the developing world (in addition to systems used in the developed countries), since unique engineering challenges arise in that special setting. Because humans often play a pivotal role in the process of using such systems, theories from the human factors engineering community may need to be integrated with methods from the technology-oriented domains in order to create effective engineering methodologies for socio-technical systems in the healthcare domain. Previous FHIES symposia were held in 2011, in Mabalingwe ZA (with post-conference proceedings in Springer LNCS 7151), and in 2012, in Paris FR (with post-conference proceedings in Springer LNCS 7789).


Registration is now open for FHIES 2013. The early registration deadline and the hotel reservation deadline are both 6th August 2013: after that point, the registration fee rises, and the reserved hotel rooms are released. The symposium has grown to three days; in addition to three keynote speakers and 19 accepted submissions, there will be two panel discussions, and a full programme of social events.
