The first IEEE International Workshop on Big Data in Computational Epidemiology (BDCE 2014) has issued a call for papers to be presented at the IEEE International Conference on Big Data to be held in Washington DC on October 27, 2014.

The workshop brings together researchers from epidemiology, data science, computational science and health IT domains to tap the potential of emerging technologies in data intensive computations and analytical processing to advance the state of art in computational epidemiology. Computational epidemiology aims to understand the spread of diseases and efficient strategies to mitigate their outbreak.

BDCE welcomes full paper submission of original and previously unpublished research. All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and once accepted will be included in the workshop proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, made available at the IEEE BigData 2014 conference. For submission instructions, please visit the workshop website.

Program co-chairs: Jiangzhuo Chen, Sandeep Gupta.
