ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

IHI 2012 is the main conference of the newly formed ACM Special Interest
Group on Health Informatics (SIGHIT).

IHI 2012 is ACM's premier community forum concerned with the application
of computer science principles, information science principles,
information technology, and communication technology to address problems
in healthcare, public health, and everyday wellness. The conference
highlights the most novel technical contributions in computing-oriented
health informatics and the related social and ethical implications. IHI
2012 will feature keynotes, a multi-track technical program including
papers, demonstrations, and panels. New additions to the IHI 2012 program
include tutorials and a doctoral consortium.

IHI 2012 serves as a venue for the discussion of innovative technical
contributions highlighting end-to-end applications, systems, and
technologies, even if available only in prototype form (e.g., a system is
not deployed in production mode and/or evaluation may be performed by
giving examples). We strongly encourage authors to submit their original
contributions describing their algorithmic contributions, methodological
contributions, and well-founded conjectures based on an
application-oriented context. A paper does not have to be comprehensive
and can focus on a single aspect of design, development, evaluation, or
deployment.

Contributions in the realm of social and behavioral issues 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, studies on public policies on
leveraging health informatics infrastructure, among others.


SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

The conference will accept both regular and short papers.

Regular papers (6-10 pages in length) will describe more mature ideas,
where a substantial amount of implementation, experimentation, or data
collection and analysis will be described.

Short papers (1-5 pages) can be less formal and will describe innovative
ideas where a less degree of validation and implementation have occurred.

All papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library. The list of conference
topics is available on the conference web site.

The best papers of IHI 2012 will also be considered for journal
publication in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Intelligent
Systems and Technology (TIST).

IHI 2012 has three tracks: analytics, systems, and human factors.
"	The analytics track focuses on data analysis.
"	The systems track focuses on building health informatics systems (e.g.,
architecture, framework, design, engineering, and application).
"	The human factors track focuses on understanding users or context,
interface design, and user studies of health informatics applications.

When submitting a paper, the authors must select a track that they regard
as the most appropriate one for their paper. Before the review process
starts, the PC co-chairs will check each paper and make adjustment if
necessary to ensure the submission will be reviewed in the correct track.

A subset of highly-ranked papers will have oral presentation slots. The
other accepted papers, which are not selected for oral presentation, will
be presented as posters.

Submitted papers must not have appeared in, or be under consideration for,
another conference, workshop, journal, or other target of publication.

CALL FOR DEMOS

IMPORTANT DATES
Demo paper submission deadline: June 30, 2011 11:59pm EST
Notification of acceptance: September 1, 2011 11:59pm EST
Camera-ready copy due: September 30, 2011 11:59pm EST

SCOPE OF THE DEMO TRACK

A submission proposal includes a demo paper and can optionally include a
demo video, whose URL should be referred to in the textual demo
description for reviewers to take into consideration when analyzing the
submission. Note that the demo paper should differ from regular papers in
several important aspects.
(1) it should clearly describe the overall architecture of the system or
technology demonstrated.
(2) the paper should put great emphasis on the motivation of the work, on
the applications of the presented system or technology, and on the novelty
of the work.
(3) the proposal should clearly describe the demo scenario. In particular,
it should describe how the demo audience can interact with the demo
system, to better understand the underlying technology.
A list of IHI areas/topics can be found in the Call for Papers.

For demos running over the web, a back-up scenario should be described, in
case connectivity is limited at the demo venue.

The notification for acceptance of demo papers is the same as that for
regular papers. Accepted demo proposals will appear in the final
proceedings and in ACM digital library.

CALL FOR DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM SUBMISSIONS

IMPORTANT DATES
Doctoral consortium submission deadline: June 30, 2011 11:59pm EST
Notification of acceptance: September 1, 2011 11:59pm EST
Camera-ready copy due: September 30, 2011 11:59pm EST

SCOPE OF THE DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

The doctorial consortium is expected to offer a supportive learning
opportunity for doctoral students in two ways:
(1) as a poster presentation during a poster session of the IHI conference
and
(2) as an article in the SIGHIT Record, the newsletter of SIGHIT
(http://www.sighit.org/record/).
Extended abstracts will not appear in the IHI conference proceedings.

All extended abstract submissions for the doctoral consortium will be
formally reviewed by the IHI Program Committee to ensure every accepted
submission is appropriate for IHI.

The conference organizers will work on ensuring that the doctoral
consortium is well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment.

CALL FOR NON-REFEREED EXTENDED ABSTRACTS

IMPORTANT DATES
Extended abstract submission deadline: September 8, 2011 11:59pm EST
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2011 11:59pm EST
Camera-ready copy due: September 30, 2011 11:59pm EST

SCOPE OF THE NON-REFEREED EXTENDED ABSTRACT TRACK

The non-refereed extended abstract track offers an opportunity for health
informatics practitioners and researchers to present their work in
progress in two ways:
(1) as a poster presentation at the IHI conference and;
(2) as an article in the SIGHIT Record, the newsletter of SIGHIT
(http://www.sighit.org/record/).
Extended abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings.

Although the non-refereed extended abstract submissions will not be
formally reviewed, the IHI 2012 conference organizers will read all of the
submissions to ensure every accepted submission is appropriate for IHI.

The conference organizers will work on ensuring that poster sessions are
well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment.
