$120.00- Regular Registration and $50.00 -Student Registration.
The Data Mining (DM), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Health Applications (HA) Subdivisions of the Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences (INFORMS) propose to jointly organize the 7th Pre-conference Workshop in conjunction with the 2012 INFORMS Annual Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. The theme of the workshop centers on health informatics. On behalf of the INFORMS DM-HI 2012 Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to submit an abstract, not exceeding 200 words, for review. Authors of accepted abstracts will be expected to give a presentation at the Workshop and submit a short paper, not exceeding 6 pages, for the Workshop Proceedings, to be published on a CD.
The Workshop will consist of two parallel tracks, a health care applications track and a data mining/artificial intelligence research track. Each track will consist of at least two morning sessions and two afternoon sessions, and each session will consist of three or four presentations. A plenary speaker will be scheduled over lunch.
Abstracts (200 words or less) submitted for the Workshop will be reviewed.
July 29: EXTENDED DEADLINE for 200-word abstracts
Aug 05: Acceptance decisions sent out

October 13: Workshop
If you have been selected to give a presentation at the workshop itself, and to write a 6 page paper for the proceedings of the workshop. Each presentation is 20 minutes long, with 5 minutes for questions.
Please ensure that the paper is checked carefully for grammatical problems, particularly if you are not a native English speaker.
– To register for the workshop, it is easiest to do this while you are registering for the INFORMS conference itself. The option to select the workshop is during the check-out.
– In order to expedite transitions between presentations at the workshop, we will try to have most of the presentations pre-loaded onto a laptop. Please either bring a .pdf file with you on a USB drive, or email it to the organizers in advance. It will also be possible to use your own laptop (but it is good to send us a .pdf backup just in case).
