CHI 2021 WS CFP: Realizing AI in Healthcare:
Challenges Appearing in the Wild
Deadline: February 28th (extended)

More information:
In conjunction with CHI 2021:
May 8th and 9th 2021 [Online workshop]

This workshop will explore the role of HCI in enabling the
implementation of AI in real-world healthcare. Drawing on fieldwork,
prototypes, and case studies, we will reflect on key concepts in AI,
including 'explainability', 'trust', and 'accuracy', to support
researchers and developers in taking a more sociotechnical and
human-centered perspective when using AI systems to change care

AI research has been growing steadily and promising to improve results
for many areas of healthcare. HCI has contributed to these
discussions, mainly with studies on explainability of advanced
algorithms. However, only few machine learning systems make it to
everyday care. This challenging move has been named the 'last mile' of
AI in healthcare, emphasizing the sociotechnical uncertainties and
unforeseen learnings from involving users in the design or use of
AI-based systems. With this workshop we aim to set the stage for a new
wave of HCI research that accounts for and begins to develop new
insights, concepts, and methods, for going the 'last mile' with AI in

We expect position papers describing or discussing artifacts,
empirical results, theoretical reflections, and design explorations,
that reflect on insights, concepts, or methods related to the
implementation and use of AI in healthcare. We encourage submissions
from researchers, engineers, designers, data scientists, social
scientists, medical professionals, and patients, who are interested in
broadening reflections around human-centred AI in healthcare and the
sociotechnical challenges appearing in the wild. Possible topics
include, but are not limited to:
 * Empirical studies of healthcare AI in the wild
 * Methodological challenges for studying AI systems in the wild
 * Human-centred AI in the HCI design process
 * Theories and framings for broadening HCI approaches to AI and health
 * Sociotechnical impacts and critical perspectives
 * Expanding the conception of what AI-tools in healthcare should offer

Prospective participants are invited to submit a 4-5 pages position
paper using the CHI 2021 Format - references are excluded from page
count. Non-academics can apply to the workshop with a motivation
letter. Submissions should be sent to: [log in to unmask] by
February 28th 2021.

Accepted position papers will be made available on the Workshop's
website. Moreover, all authors will be invited to expand their
research and submit a full paper to a special issue that is being
prepared on the same topic for a key HCI journal.

February 28th 2021: Submission deadline
March 19th 2021: Notification of acceptance
April 23rd 2021: Camera-ready version of papers
April 30th 2021: Short videos from authors
May 8th and 9th 2021: Workshop at CHI 2021
