   The Fourth International Workshop on Data Management and Analytics
                    for Medicine and Healthcare (DMAH 2018)
                   In Conjunction with VLDB 2018
                      Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
                 August 31, 2018

Healthcare enterprises are producing large amounts of data through electronic medical records, medical imaging, health insurance claims, surveillance, and
others. Such data have high potential to transform current healthcare to
improve healthcare quality and prevent diseases, and advance biomedical
research. Medical Informatics is an interdisciplinary field that studies
and pursues the effective use of medical data, information, and knowledge
for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, driven by efforts
to improve human health and well being.

The goal of the workshop is to bring people in the field cross-cutting
information management and medical informatics to discuss innovative data
management and analytics technologies highlighting end-to-end applications,
systems, and methods to address problems in healthcare, public health, and
everyday wellness, with clinical, physiological, imaging, behavioral,
environmental, and omic- data, and data from social media and the Web. It
will provide a unique opportunity for interaction between information
management researchers and biomedical researchers for the interdisciplinary

This workshop welcomes papers that address fundamental research issues
for complex medical data environments, data management and analytical
methods, systems and applications.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

Big data integration for medical data;
Data cleansing for noisy and missing data;
Medical data and knowledge management and decision support;
Data management technologies for medical data;
Semantic Web and ontologies for clinical and biomedical applications;
Medical natural language processing and text mining;
Data mining and knowledge discovery from Electronic Health Records;
