Co-located with the American Medical Informatics Association’s Fall


November 3-4, 2012

Chicago, Illinois, USA

Workshop website:


Health Information Technology (HIT) researchers and practitioners are
increasingly focusing on the design of interactive systems, human factors,
and human-computer interaction in response to the growing emphasis on the
adoption and impact HIT. Despite this progress, there exists a largely
untapped potential to create deeper and more profound connections among the
biomedical, informatics, human-computer interaction, human factors, medical
sociology and anthropology communities that would lead to the development
of new methods, approaches, and techniques for removing the barriers to HIT

To address this limitation, the Association of Computing and Machinery
(ACM) conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI’2010) hosted a
Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare 2010 (WISH 2010, In 2011, the American Medical Informatics
Association hosted the second WISH at their Annual Fall Symposium. The
workshops attracted over 100 participants from a variety of disciplines,
institutions, and experience levels (from undergraduate researchers to
world renowned experts). The workshops included a combination of invited
panels, keynote presentations and research presentations, discussing the
most pressing issues in the design, development, and evaluation of HIT and
the impact of the new research on commercial HIT systems.

Building on the success of the last two workshops and to continue to build
bridges between the ACM SIGCHI and Medical Informatics communities, WISH
2012 will be collocated with the American Medical Informatics’ (AMIA)
annual Fall Symposium in Chicago, Illinois, on November 3-4, 2012. The
workshop will be a part of the pre-AMIA program. For WISH 2012, we aim to
work towards a joint deliverable that can inform the course of future
research endeavors between ACM SIGCHI and AMIA, thus we will have a 1.5 day
workshop that willinclude invited talks and panels, breakout sessions, and
peer-reviewed poster sessions. This format will provide participants ample
time to network, discuss ideas, and work together to define a WISH-oriented
research agenda.


For WISH 2012, we are accepting two types of submissions: interactive
posters and panels.

Interactive posters provide researchers with the opportunity to briefly
present their work during a minute madness session and then spend time
discussing their work with attendees during a poster session.

Panels can be proposed for any topic related to the design, development,
deployment, and analysis of any interactive system in healthcare in
academia, industry, or public policy.

Both interactive posters and panels should be submitted as two-page
(maximum length) papers in the AMIA submission format:

Interactive Poster submission should include:

A concise description of the idea(s)

Results, findings or theoretical discussion

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

Recommendations for further investigation

Panels should be limited to four panelists and a moderator. Panels will
have 1 hour including time for audience questions. Submissions should

A summary about the panel and the panel aims.

A discussion of what issues will be discussed during the panel and
information about what each panelists will be presenting (if applicable)

A brief overview of how the panel will work to provide an idea about how
panelist presentations will be mixed with interactivity

A statement about the relevance of the panel to the WISH community

A bio for the moderator and each panelist

Accepted submissions will be published in the WISH 2012 proceedings.
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 of the workshop is to foster discussion, encourage broad ideas,
and bring together a wide interdisciplinary audience.

Full literature reviews 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.


August 10: Poster and panels submissions due

Early September: Notification
