Call for Participation
CHI 2018 Symposium on Computing and Mental Health Montreal, Canada, April 22, 2018


The World Health Organization predicts that by the year 2030, mental illnesses will be the leading disease burden globally. Advances in technology create opportunities for collaboration between computation and mental health researchers to develop technologies to help those in mental distress. Yet for mental health technologies to succeed, human-centered design and evaluation will be essential. 

This 3rd Symposium on Computing and Mental Health provides an opportunity for researchers to come together under the auspices of CHI to discuss the design and evaluation of new mental health technologies. It follows two successful symposia at CHI 2016 and 2017. In convening at CHI we are especially interested in work that seeks to understand users and contexts. This lends itself naturally to a focus on disadvantaged groups and social inclusion.

Four kinds of submission are invited:

* Short papers are expected to be developed later for inclusion in a special issue of JMIR, to be published in May 2019. Authors will present a poster at the symposium.
* Long papers should be submitted straight to JMIR. Authors will be invited to give a presentation at the symposium.
* Posters describe work-in-progress, a technology, or an existing publication.
* Social papers are maximum one page in length and act as a CV for networking.

See our workshop website for details: 

Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission must register both for the workshop and for at least one day of the main conference.


* Greg Wadley, University of Melbourne
* Rafael A. Calvo, University of Sydney
* John Torous, Harvard Medical School
* Mary Czerwinski, Microsoft Research

Important Dates:

* Submission deadline: *15 February* 2018
* Acceptance notifications: 22 February 2018
* Symposium: Sunday 22nd April 2018
