Co-located with CHI 2016
Saturday, May 7, 2016
San Jose, California, USA

***Open Workshop***
Saturday is a one-day open workshop and we welcome those interested to register even if they have not submitted anything. This promises to be another exciting installment of WISH. We hope to see you there!

Health Information Technology (HIT) has the enormous potential to transform healthcare by positively impacting quality, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Similarly, new self-monitoring technologies and data science methods open unprecedented opportunities to inform decisions and choices of individuals who must manage their health and chronic diseases at home. As the impact of these technologies continues to increase, HIT researchers and practitioners are increasingly focusing on the design of interactive systems, human factors, and human-computer interaction. Many different research communities contribute to the advance of these technologies; these include human-computer interaction, human factors, biomedical informatics, behavioral medicine, among others. The overarching goal of the Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH) is to establish lasting and meaningful connections between these communities, and bring together students and researchers from various disciplines who are working on creating, implementing, and evaluating innovative health technologies.
The first workshop in the series, WISH 2010 was co-hosted with CHI 2010 in Atlanta, GA. From 2011-2014, WISH was co-hosted with the Annual Symposium of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA). We are pleased to announce that in 2016 WISH is coming back to the HCI community and will be co-located with CHI 2016 in San Jose, California. This 2-day workshop will include an open workshop day (Saturday), and an invitation-only meeting of the WISH steering committee (Sunday). The open workshop day will include invited talks and panels, and peer-reviewed technical program and poster sessions. This format will provide participants ample time to network, discuss ideas, and work together to define a WISH-oriented research agenda. Notably, WISH2016 does not require submission of a position paper, and is open to all interested parties.

If there are any questions or a need for further information, please send an email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. We look forward to seeing you in San Jose at WISH 2016.
