CALL FOR PAPERS
Aim and Scope
Health and Social Care systems are facing major challenges worldwide, due in part to changes in demography and advances in technology and in part to changes in the structure and organisation of the system whether they are hospitals, general practitioners or long-term care settings. Yet running health and social care systems efficiently and effectively is crucial to improving or even maintaining our quality of life. 

Over the years, extensive research has been conducted to find immediate and long-term solutions to issues that are routinely faced by health and social care professionals, such as waiting lists and bed capacity, hospital redesign, workforce planning and scheduling, patient flow, performance management, disease monitoring, and health care technology assessment. In addition, there has been an exponential growth in the generation of data whether routinely for administrative or financial purposes or more specifically for clinical or research purposes including through devices and sensors. 

Quantitative modelling and computer simulation techniques have been shown to be increasingly valuable in providing useful information to aid planning and management however studies have often been limited in their attempts to exploit the wealth of data.

The aim of the conference is to bring together health care managers, clinicians, management consultants, and mathematicians, operational researchers, statisticians, health economists, computing and data scientists from across the world with a view to bridging the gap between the respective communities and to exploring recent developments in quantitative modelling and identifying fruitful avenues for further research.

Call for Papers 
We invite researchers in all relevant problem domains and methodologies to submit abstracts of 300 words by Friday 18th December 2015 by e-mail to [log in to unmask] Case studies and methodological papers are both welcome. Please state whether your title is intended for oral or poster presentation. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by the end of January 2016. Poster presentations are particularly welcome as they stimulate discussion and feedback. We are also planning a special poster presentation session for research students and others to show their work in progress.
