2nd ACM SIGHIT International Health Informatics Symposium (IHI 2011) November 9-11, 2011 Miami, Florida, USA http://www.sighit.org/ihi2011 (mirror site: http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/ihi2011/) _________________________________________________________________ CALL FOR PAPERS IMPORTANT DATES Abstract submission deadline: May 23, 2011 11:59pm EST Paper submission deadline: May 30, 2011 11:59pm EST Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2011 11:59pm EST Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2011 11:59pm EST ABOUT THE CONFERENCE IHI 2011 is the main conference of the newly formed ACM Special Interest Group on Health Informatics (SIGHIT). IHI 2011 is ACM's premier community forum concerned with the application of computer science principles, information science principles, information technology, and communication technology to address problems in healthcare, public health, and everyday wellness. The conference highlights the most novel technical contributions in computing-oriented health informatics and the related social and ethical implications. IHI 2011 will feature keynotes, a multi-track technical program including papers, demonstrations, and panels. New additions to the IHI 2011 program include tutorials and a doctoral consortium. IHI 2011 serves as a venue for the discussion of innovative technical contributions highlighting end-to-end applications, systems, and technologies, even if available only in prototype form (e.g., a system is not deployed in production mode and/or evaluation may be performed by giving examples). We strongly encourage authors to submit their original contributions describing their algorithmic contributions, methodological contributions, and well-founded conjectures based on an application-oriented context. A paper does not have to be comprehensive and can focus on a single aspect of design, development, evaluation, or deployment. Contributions in the realm of social and behavioral issues might include empirical studies of health-related information use and needs, socio-technical studies on the implementation and use of health information technology, studies on health informatics in the context of community impact and implications, studies on public policies on leveraging health informatics infrastructure, among others. SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION The conference will accept both regular and short papers. Regular papers (6-10 pages in length) will describe more mature ideas, where a substantial amount of implementation, experimentation, or data collection and analysis will be described. Short papers (1-5 pages) can be less formal and will describe innovative ideas where a less degree of validation and implementation have occurred. All papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library. The list of conference topics is available at http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/ihi2011/Themes%20-%20web2011IHI.htm. The best papers of IHI 2011 will also be considered for journal publication in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology (TIST). IHI 2011 has three tracks: analytics, systems, and human factors. " The analytics track focuses on data analysis. " The systems track focuses on building health informatics systems (e.g., architecture, framework, design, engineering, and application). " The human factors track focuses on understanding users or context, interface design, and user studies of health informatics applications. When submitting a paper, the authors must select a track that they regard as the most appropriate one for their paper. Before the review process starts, the PC co-chairs will check each paper and make adjustment if necessary to ensure the submission will be reviewed in the correct track. A subset of highly-ranked papers will have oral presentation slots. The other accepted papers, which are not selected for oral presentation, will be presented as posters. Submitted papers must not have appeared in, or be under consideration for, another conference, workshop, journal, or other target of publication. _________________________________________________________________ CALL FOR DEMOS IMPORTANT DATES Demo paper submission deadline: May 30, 2011 11:59pm EST Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2011 11:59pm EST Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2011 11:59pm EST SCOPE OF THE DEMO TRACK A submission proposal includes a demo paper and can optionally include a demo video, whose URL should be referred to in the textual demo description for reviewers to take into consideration when analyzing the submission. Note that the demo paper should differ from regular papers in several important aspects. (1) it should clearly describe the overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated. (2) the paper should put great emphasis on the motivation of the work, on the applications of the presented system or technology, and on the novelty of the work. (3) the proposal should clearly describe the demo scenario. In particular, it should describe how the demo audience can interact with the demo system, to better understand the underlying technology. A list of IHI areas/topics can be found in the Call for Papers. For demos running over the web, a back-up scenario should be described, in case connectivity is limited at the demo venue. The notification for acceptance of demo papers is the same as that for regular papers. Accepted demo proposals will appear in the final proceedings and in ACM digital library. _________________________________________________________________ CALL FOR DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM SUBMISSIONS IMPORTANT DATES Doctoral consortium submission deadline: May 30, 2011 11:59pm EST Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2011 11:59pm EST Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2011 11:59pm EST SCOPE OF THE DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM The doctorial consortium is expected to offer a supportive learning opportunity for doctoral students in two ways: (1) as a poster presentation during a poster session of the IHI conference and (2) as an article in the SIGHIT Record, the newsletter of SIGHIT (http://www.sighit.org/record/). Extended abstracts will not appear in the IHI conference proceedings. All extended abstract submissions for the doctoral consortium will be formally reviewed by the IHI Program Committee to ensure every accepted submission is appropriate for IHI. The conference organizers will work on ensuring that the doctoral consortium is well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment. _________________________________________________________________ CALL FOR NON-REFEREED EXTENDED ABSTRACTS IMPORTANT DATES Extended abstract submission deadline: August 8, 2011 11:59pm EST Notification of acceptance: August 15, 2011 11:59pm EST Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2011 11:59pm EST SCOPE OF THE NON-REFEREED EXTENDED ABSTRACT TRACK The non-refereed extended abstract track offers an opportunity for health informatics practitioners and researchers to present their work in progress in two ways: (1) as a poster presentation at the IHI conference and; (2) as an article in the SIGHIT Record, the newsletter of SIGHIT (http://www.sighit.org/record/). Extended abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings. Although the non-refereed extended abstract submissions will not be formally reviewed, the IHI 2011 conference organizers will read all of the submissions to ensure every accepted submission is appropriate for IHI. The conference organizers will work on ensuring that poster sessions are well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment. _________________________________________________________________ CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS IMPORTANT DATES Panel proposal submission deadline: May 30, 2011 11:59pm EST Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2011 11:59pm EST Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2011 11:59pm EST SCOPE OF PANEL PROPOSALS Panel proposals are expected to address new, exciting, and controversial issues on computing-oriented health informatics and appeal to IHI 2011 attendees with various health informatics-related expertise. The proposed panel should be provocative, insightful, and informative. A mix of industry, government, and academic panel members is encouraged. A panel typically includes approximately 4 panelists and a chair who serves as the moderator. The 90-minute panel should provide a balance between panelists' presentations/debate and audience interactions/discussions. Panelists must make a commitment to participate. If for any reason, one panelist cannot attend the panel, the panel chair must first obtain the approval of the conference general/PC chairs before making another arrangement. Panels will be featured prominently in the conference program. REVIEWING Panel proposals will be reviewed by the PC Co-Chairs and the Conference Leadership, based on the IHI attendees' likely interest in them, the expertise of the chairs and the panelists, and the planned interactivity. _________________________________________________________________ CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS IMPORTANT DATES Tutorial proposal submission deadline: May 30, 2011 11:59pm EST Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2011 11:59pm EST Camera-ready copy due: August 30, 2011 11:59pm EST SCOPE OF TUTORIAL PROPOSALS Tutorials at IHI 2011 will be presented by domain experts to cover current topics directly relevant to the conference theme of computing-oriented health informatics (a list of IHI areas/topics can be found in the Call for Papers). Proposed tutorials should be comprehensive, informative, and appealing to IHI 2011 attendees. Each tutorial will be 120-minutes long. Tutorial instructors must make a commitment to prepare the tutorial materials (e.g., slides) that reflect the high quality standard of IHI. Tutorials will be free to all IHI 2011 attendees, and tutorial instructors will receive free registration but not any financial aid from the conference. All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program. REVIEWING Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the PC Co-Chairs and the Conference Leadership, based on the IHI attendees' likely interest in them, the breadth and depth of the topic(s), the planned materials to be used, and the expertise and credential of the instructor.
