======== Call for Participation ========

Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare

April 11, 2010, Atlanta Georgia USA

Co-located with the annual CHI conference


Authors may present their work in one of two formats: Short Talks or  
Interactive Posters. Short Talks are brief oral presentations by the  
author, while interactive posters focus more on visual presentation  
and discussion between the author and attendees around the poster. We  
expect the majority of presentations to be interactive posters with a  
limited subset of people invited to give short talks. If you do not  
want to be considered for the short talk track, preferring only the  
poster presentation format, please make this known to the chairs. See  
also the WISH website:

Both short talk and posters should submit a four page paper in the ACM  
extended abstracts format. Accepted submissions are published in the  
WISH 2010 proceedings but not the ACM digital library. Authors retain  
all copyright. We encourage preliminary ideas, design sketches,  
experimental results, policy and theoretical contributions, works in  
progress, and any other health and interactive systems related  
content.  The goal is to foster discussion, encourage broad ideas, and  
bring together a wide interdisciplinary audience.  A submission should  

	 A concise description of the idea(s)

	 Results, findings, or theoretical discussion

	 The implications of the work to the interdisciplinary community who  
may be present

	 Recommendations for further investigation
Full literature searches are not expected, although relevant citations  
should be included.
The paper and abstract, as submitted for review, will be regarded as  
the final publication-ready version of your submission. Therefore, the  
abstract and paper submission must be clearly written, carefully  
proofread, and correctly formatted.

***How to Submit***
Upload your submission in PDF format to the WISH Electronic Submission  
Web site at by 5:00pm PST  
6 January 2010. Follow the instructions for the file upload and enter  
the requested information, including author information, keywords, and  
abstract. Note that the process of producing a PDF file of your  
submission can sometimes cause changes in the length of the  
contributions. Authors are advised to generate and check PDFs of their  
submissions to verify that their final submission stays within the  
length restrictions of the WISH submission process.

***NEW Mentoring Program***

We are pleased to offer a mentoring program to pair students, post- 
doctoral researchers, and people relatively new to health+HCI research  
(e.g., clinicians, junior faculty, people switching fields) with  
senior members of the field.  This mentoring program will include a  
joint dinner with these individuals and some time for 1:1 meetings.   
We also hope to be able to offer fellowships to attend WISH and CHI  
corresponding with this program.  The size of each grant will be  
decided on a per-case basis and can be applied to registration,  
travel, and lodging. Preference will be given to people who: (a) have  
demonstrated need; (b) have not recently attended CHI and who might  
not otherwise attend the conference; (c) have work accepted to the  
workshop; (d) are  at a stage in their careers that they would benefit  
from mentorship.
