Call for Papers

Real chance for life!

CancerCareInformatics is the first international conference on Cancer Informatics attracting researchers, policy makers, and practitioners that employ informatics to empower cancer care holistically, where the cancer patient is the focus in the cancer care journey involving all concerned stakeholders. The conference is anticipated not only to be a platform, but also as a key enabler of developing new knowledge to address many of the unmet needs of healthcare strategies and policy makers in informatics-enabled cancer care, provide accessibility to next generation peer-reviewed research in cancer care informatics, requirements engineering for cancer care, lean engineering of cancer care processes, policy changes to cancer care enabled by informatics, governance, change management, and taking into consideration cultural change implications  in attending to informatics-enabled cancer care. In addition, the conference is aimed at attracting state of the art research in the provision of (1) cancer care software services, clouds and tools, (2) big data analytics for cancer care, (3) reducing the digital divide in cancer care, (4) Cancer Care and Life Long Learning, (5) Legal, Social, Ethical and Professional Issues in Cancer Care Informatics, (6) methods for evaluating the effectiveness of employing cancer care informatics strategies, policies, etc. 

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Manuscripts need to be prepared and submitted with full adherence to the IEEE CS format (Format Link).

NOTE: A Selected Set from the Finally Accepted Camera Ready FULL REGULAR PAPERS will be shortlisted for further review and extension to appear in the first dedicated International Journal on Cancer Care Informatics and to appear in a special issue in 2018/2019. 

The maximum number of pages for regular papers is 10 pages.

For workshops and the Ph.D. Consortium, the page limit is 8 pages.

For poster and demo papers, the page limit is 4 pages.

Papers will be peer-reviewed by international reviewers in related discipline. Authors of accepted papers will be required to attend and present their papers in a plenary session.


A selected set of papers from the regular conference papers will be nominated to submit to the first International Journal on Cancer Care Informatics within a special issue subject to further extension and review by designated reviewers.
