CfP: Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH)
CHI 2010 Special Hosted Pre-Conference Event
11 April 2010, Atlanta GA

* Submission Deadline: 6 January 2010
* Notification: 30 January 2010
* Format: 4 pages in CHI Extended Abstracts format
* Submission site:

In recent years, the medical informatics community has begun to recognize human-computer interaction (HCI) and better understanding of the social and human elements as important to a sound Health IT strategy. Meanwhile, research in human-computer interaction has found healthcare a rich and interesting domain of inquiry. Despite this progress, however, there exists a largely untapped potential to create deeper and more profound connections among the medical, informatics, human-computer interaction, medical sociology and anthropology communities.

The Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH), co-located with the ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors and Computing Systems, aims to foster conversation and bridge communities. This workshop will include specialists in medical informatics, nursing informatics, medical sociology, human-computer interaction, and related fields.

WISH will have an exciting program, including plenary speakers, invited panels, and the presentation of peer-reviewed research in the form of paper presentations and posters.  This event is open to the public, even if you do not submit content for presentation.

We look forward to your submissions, and hope to see you there!

Gillian Hayes & Desney Tan (co-chairs)
Lauren Wilcox (student coordinator)
