Call for Participation
IHI 2010
1st ACM International Health Informatics Symposium
Arlington, VA
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.
