Saskia van Loon, PhD student from Information Systems group receives Catharina Hospital’s Annual Best Poster Award

Each year, Catharina Hospital Eindhoven organizes a Science Event in which state-of-the-art research done in collaboration with diverse partners is presented. One of these partners is the Information Systems group of the Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences, where there is long-term collaboration on healthcare analytics and healthcare process support.

This year, the annual CZE Science Event took place on April 5th, 2018. The best poster prize was won by Saskia van Loon, PhD student within the Data Science flagship of the IMPULS program and the Information Systems group. Saskia researches the possibilities of using ‘big data’ in supporting medical decision making. In her prize-winning poster, Saskia developed a metabolic health index to quantify the health status of bariatric patients with co-morbidities. The work in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Technology can help monitor the generic health status of patients over the long-term after an operative intervention.

IS group presents at ICT.OPEN 2018

Every year the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research NWO organizes the ICT.OPEN conference for researchers to share their accomplishments and work in ICT research with industry.

This year, two PhD candidates of the IS group – Jason Rhuggenaath and Raoul Nuijten – presented their research to the ICT community. And with success: Raoul Nuijten won the Award for Best Poster Presentation in the category Health. The poster exhibited recent research on the eHealth platform GameBus.

 

 

Best Paper Award for 2017

Qing Chuan Ye and Yingqian Zhang received a “Best Paper Award for 2017” from Omega-International Journal of Management Science.

The award-winning paper “Fair task allocation in transportation”, co-authored with Rommert Dekker, is available at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.omega.2016.05.005.

The paper studies a max-min fair, minimum-cost task allocation problem in transportation. It proposes an efficient algorithm for allocating tasks and resources in a fair way among players. The experiments show that often fairness comes with a very small price in terms of cost. In many cases such as applications in Sharing Economy, such a fair allocation algorithm is more socially desired than the classical cost minimization ones.
