Patterns: A Personal Reflection
In the (very) late nineties, I became involved in the Workflow Patterns Initiative. My first foray into patterns-related research. Over time, a number of different patterns collections would be defined and pattern-based evaluations conducted. In this talk I would like to reflect on my experiences with this type of research and discuss the use of patterns, the challenges in defining them, methodological considerations, and typical criticisms.

My hometown is Henan Province, China. The Shaolin Temple in my hometown is famous around the world because of the Chinese Kung fu.
My Bachelor’s Degree was received from Zhengzhou University, China after four years (2010-2014) study majored in Biomedical Engineering. Then I was admitted into Zhejiang University as a Direct Ph.D. student in September, 2014. From March 2015 to December 2015, my work mainly focused on the standardization and mapping of Chinese clinical terminology and related Medical Terminology Services, which aimed to promote the medical information exchange and sharing. The technologies used included text similarity algorithm and Chinese words segmentation. In the end, I developed a web-based middleware software including terminology mapping and management services, which will be evaluated in a real hospital.
From the end of December of 2015, I was selected to take part in the Brain Bridge Project” Risk assessment to improve patient outcomes for cardiovascular diseases”. The goal of this project is to predict the risk of cardiovascular patients of different conditions using data mining technique so that practitioners can adopt suitable therapies.
On Monday 30 May 2016 4PM, Rob Vanwersch will defend his PhD thesis entitled “Rethinking care processes: Does anybody have an idea?” in Auditorium 4 at Eindhoven University of Technology.
