Call for Papers
Eighth IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics 
June 15-18, 2020. Oldenburg, Germany
- -
submission deadline: Feb 20, 2020

We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the Eighth IEEE 
International Conference on Healthcare Informatics (ICHI 2020) that will 
take place June 15-18, 2020 in Oldenburg, Germany. 

ICHI 2020 is a premier community forum concerned with the application of 
computer science, information science, data science, and informatics 
principles, as well as information technology, and communication science 
and technology to address problems and support research in healthcare, 
medicine, life science, public health, and everyday wellness. The 
conference highlights the most novel technical contributions to 
stakeholder-centered technology innovation for benefiting human health and 
the related social and ethical implications. 

We strongly encourage authors to submit their original contributions 
describing their algorithmic, methodological or empirical contributions, 
and theories relevant to the broader context of health informatics. 
Submissions can focus on one or more specific aspects of theory, design, 
development, evaluation, or deployment. ICHI 2020 has three tracks for 
paper and poster submissions: analytics, human factors, and systems:

Analytics track: In the Analytics track, we invite submission on novel 
methods for exploring and analyzing healthcare data such as biomedical 
pattern recognition, biomarker discovery, disease profiling and 
personalized treatment, natural language processing and text mining, 
recommender systems, clinical phenotyping, visual analytics, 
explainability, and epidemiological modeling. 

Human Factors track: Contributions in the realm of Human Factors might 
include empirical studies of health-related information use and needs, 
socio-technical studies on the implementation and use of health 
information technology, studies on health informatics in the context of 
community impact and implications, descriptions of innovative 
user-centered design solutions, and studies of public policy on leveraging 
health informatics infrastructures. 

Systems track: The Systems track welcomes submissions related to the 
design, development, deployment, and evaluation of high-performing 
privacy-preserving and secure software or hardware systems. 


The conference will accept both regular and short papers. Papers should be 
submitted at Paper 
submissions must adhere to the IEEE Proceedings Format (details will be 
published soon). For publication opportunities as posters, demos, or in 
the industry track, for workshops, tutorials, and the doctoral consortium 
see the respective other calls. 


ICHI uses double-blind reviewing for full and short papers, submissions 
should therefore be anonymized and all references and links disclosing the 
authorship should be blinded appropriately. 

Presentation and Publication

All submissions will be published in IEEE Xplore and indexed in other 
Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Accepted papers have an oral 
presentation slot at the conference. Selected papers will be invited to 
submit the extended version to the Journal of Healthcare Informatics 
Research and a fast track review will be conducted for the extended
