Call for Workshop Proposals
IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics 
- -
submission deadline: Jan 10, 2020

Following the success of workshops at the past IEEE International 
Conference of Healthcare Informatics (ICHI), we cordially invite you to 
submit your workshop proposal to ICHI 2020 to be organized in Oldenburg, 
Germany from June 15-18, 2020.

Workshops are an integral part of ICHI 2020 and will be held on the day 
prior to the start of the main program (June 15, 2020). Workshops at ICHI 
2020 may be planned for a full or half day, and should address topics 
relevant to healthcare informatics.

The ideal ICHI 2020 workshop proposal will focus on a timely and emerging 
topic, and be able to attract a number of interesting and high-quality 
contributions that spark discussions in an informal setting. The 
organizers can determine the format of the workshop that may include paper 
presentations, poster sessions, invited talks, panels, or any other type 
of activity that will foster interaction and discussion. The approved 
workshop organizers will be responsible to
invite and review submissions, plan the workshop program, and organize the 


Each workshop proposal should include the following information:

* Organizers: Names, affiliations, and email addresses; contact person; 
organizers' background, prior experience of organizing similar workshops.
* Topic: Abstract, theme, rationale for the workshop, issues to be 
addressed, goals of the workshop, relevance to ICHI, previous workshops 
that this workshop is building on (if applicable).
* Audience: Target audience, communities that the workshop addresses, 
anticipated number of attendees.
* Publicity: Measures foreseen to announce the workshop and attract a 
sufficient number of participants; envisaged follow-up activities after 
the workshop (if applicable).
* Workshop Structure: Workshop length (half-day/3 hours or one-day/6 
hours), tentative workshop program, activities foreseen to foster 
interaction and communication.
* Reviewing: Planned reviewing process, program committee (if applicable).
* Call for Papers: Tentative call for papers with workshop deadlines.

If the workshop has been held before, please clearly describe any changes 
you propose, if any, and also include its history (i.e., the number of 
submissions, the number of accepted papers, and the number of attendees). 
No specific format is required, but the overall length of the proposal 
should not exceed 4 pages.

Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the workshop chairs: 
[log in to unmask] & [log in to unmask]


Reviewing will be done by the Workshop Chairs and independent reviewers as 
needed. Workshops will be accepted based on timeliness of the topic, 
relevance to ICHI, potential to attract a sufficient number of 
participants, and potential of the workshop to spark discussions and 
achieve impact in the research community.


All ICHI 2020 workshop papers will appear in the conference proceedings 
published by IEEE and will be made available via IEEE Xplore. It is also 
envisaged that successful workshops may form the basis for special issues 
of the Journal of Health Informatics Research.

We will offer 1 complimentary registration for the workshop
