Call for Participation
1st ACM International Health Informatics Symposium
November 11-12, 2010
IHI 2010 is the inaugural symposium on health informatics promoted by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). IHI is designed to run as an annual showcase for exciting and innovative research on techniques and technologies developed in universities, hospitals, research labs, and companies all over the world.
IHI 2010 will feature about 120 contributions from more than 30 countries, including regular 10-page papers, short 5-page papers, and demonstrations. Selected regular papers will be presented in oral plenary sessions. Other papers and demos will be presented by the authors in an open setting, specifically designed to encourage conversation and discussion. The symposium will cover the breadth of problems faced by the community: health informatics education, telemedicine, systems for decision support, human-centered design, information retrieval techniques for health applications, accessibility to personalized predictive modeling techniques, and so on. A highlight of the conference is that we will give awards for the best regular paper and the best short paper.
IHI 2010 reflects a collective community effort including reviewers as well as corporate sponsors, who gave generously of their time and who provided funds to specific areas of the symposium. The following companies and institutions generously provided financial support: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, IBM, Indiana University, Google, Hidola, and Siemens.
