CORDIET - Healthcare: Extracting knowledge from electronic patient record data
Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) is a mathematically well-founded theory aimed at data analysis and classication, introduced and detailed in the book of Bernhard Ganter and Rudolf Wille, \Formal Concept Analysis", Springer 1999. The area came into being in the early 1980s and has since then spawned over 10000 scientic publications and a variety of practically deployed tools. FCA allows one to build from a data table with objects in rows and attributes in columns a taxonomic data structure called concept lattice, which can be used for many purposes, especially for Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval. The \Formal Concept Analysis Meets Information Retrieval" (FCAIR) workshop collocated with the 35th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2013) was intended, on the one hand, to attract researchers from FCA community to a broad discussion of FCA-based research on information retrieval, and, on the other hand, to promote ideas, models, and methods of FCA in the community of Information Retrieval. This volume contains 11 contributions to FCAIR workshop (including 3 abstracts for invited talks and tutorial) held in Moscow, on March 24, 2013. All submissions were assessed by at least two reviewers from the program committee of the workshop to which we express our gratitude. We would also like to thank the co-organizers and sponsors of the FCAIR workshop: Russian Foundation for Basic Research, National Research University Higher School of Economics, and Yandex.
Обеспечение комплексного подхода повышения качества медицинских услуг как общественных благ воможно только при условии внедоения таких технологий, которые осуществлялись бы системно и взаимосвязано, развивая внутреннюю способность отрасли здравоохранения к самосовершенствованию через инициирование, стимулирование и внедрение инноваций.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis, ICFCA 2012, held in Leuven, Belgium in May 2012. The 20 revised full papers presented together with 6 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 68 submissions. The topics covered in this volume range from recent advances in machine learning and data mining; mining terrorist networks and revealing criminals; concept-based process mining; to scalability issues in FCA and rough sets.
Recent breakthroughs in process mining research make it possible to discover, analyze, and improve business processes based on event data. The growth of event data provides many opportunities but also imposes new challenges. Process mining is typically done for an isolated well-defined process in steady-state. However, the boundaries of a process may be fluid and there is a need to continuously view event data from different angles. This paper proposes the notion of process cubes where events and process models are organized using different dimensions. Each cell in the process cube corresponds to a set of events and can be used to discover a process model, to check conformance with respect to some process model, or to discover bottlenecks. The idea is related to the well-known OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) data cubes and associated operations such as slice, dice, roll-up, and drill-down. However, there are also significant differences because of the process-related nature of event data. For example, process discovery based on events is incomparable to computing the average or sum over a set of numerical values. Moreover, dimensions related to process instances (e.g. cases are split into gold and silver customers), subprocesses (e.g. acquisition versus delivery), organizational entities (e.g. backoffice versus frontoffice), and time (e.g., 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013) are semantically different and it is challenging to slice, dice, roll-up, and drill-down process mining results efficiently.
