FHIES 2013 Call for Participation


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. For
