Computational Health Science Workshop

Held in conjunction with the
  6th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics
Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 9 September 2015


Computational Health Science (CHS) represents the application of innovative computer science tools, including social media and data mining, to address health-related questions and problems. It integrates the analytical strengths and skills of health scientists and computer scientists, supported by complementary expertise from other researchers and practitioners as applicable (e.g., psychologists, sociologists). The goal of CHS is to better understand how technology can affect human interactions and enhance supporting environments by conducting innovative research that will inform future practice directed at changing health behavior through improved surveillance, communication, networking and targeted intervention.
