2018 International Workshop on Semantic Technology and Knowledge Graphs for eHealth (STeH2018)


Submission Deadline:

July 22, 2018

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are widely used for health care. As 'e-Health technologies', they have played an increasingly important role in the practice of medicine and clinical research. The term e-Health encompasses a range of services and systems in medicine/healthcare and information technology. Applications of e-Health include research, educating the health care workforce (e.g. e-Learning), treating patients, tracking diseases and monitoring public health. However, the lack of integration and semantic interoperability among most of the information systems that are used creates inefficiencies and application limits for eHealth, which challenge the ability of the health care industry to reach the stated goals: to supply continuous care that is personalized for each patient and to put new knowledge into practice by translating clinical research results from 'bench to bedside'.

Semantic Web technology is steadily becoming a de facto solution for semantic interoperability in medicine and healthcare. This international workshop on Semantic Technology and Knowledge Graphs for eHealth (STeH) is designed to be a discussion forum for researchers who are interested in the research and development of semantic applications for medicine and health care.
