Workshops

Workshops are an integral part of ICHI 2022 and will be held on the day prior to the start of the main program (June 13th, 2022). Workshops at ICHI 2022 may be planned for a full or half day, and should address topics relevant to healthcare informatics.

The ideal ICHI 2022 workshop proposal will focus on a timely and emerging topic, and be able to attract a number of interesting and high-quality contributions that spark discussions in an informal setting. The organizers can determine the format of the workshop that may include paper presentations, poster sessions, invited talks, panels, or any other type of activity that will foster interaction and discussion. The approved workshop organizers will be responsible to invite and review submissions, plan the workshop program, and organize the workshop.


Submission

Each workshop proposal should include the following information:

  • Organizers: Names, affiliations, and email addresses; contact person; organizers’ background, prior experience of organizing similar workshops.
  • Topic: Abstract, theme, rationale for the workshop, issues to be addressed, goals of the workshop, relevance to ICHI, previous workshops that this workshop is building on (if applicable).
  • Audience: Target audience, communities that the workshop addresses, anticipated number of attendees.
  • Publicity: Measures foreseen to announce the workshop and attract a sufficient number of participants; envisaged follow-up activities after the workshop (if applicable).
  • Workshop Structure: Workshop length (half-day/3 hours or one-day/6 hours), tentative workshop program, activities foreseen to foster interaction and communication.
  • Reviewing: Planned reviewing process, program committee (if applicable).
  • Call for Papers: Tentative call for papers with workshop deadlines.

If the workshop has been held before, please clearly describe any changes you propose, if any, and also include its history (i.e., the number of submissions, the number of accepted papers, and the number of attendees).
No specific format is required, but the overall length of the proposal should not exceed 4 pages.
Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the workshop chair: Yanshan Wang.


Reviewing

Reviewing will be done by the Workshop Chairs and independent reviewers as needed. Workshops will be accepted based on timeliness of the topic, relevance to ICHI, potential to attract a sufficient number of participants, and potential of the workshop to spark discussions and achieve impact in the research community.

Publication

All accepted submissions will be published in IEEE Xplore and indexed in other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. It is also envisaged that successful workshops may form the basis for special issues of the Journal of Health Informatics Research.
