Great news... We have gotten quite a few submissions to WISH already, and they look great! We have, however, gotten more than a dozen requests for extensions. So we decided to extend the deadline by an extra week; submissions are now due January 13.

> ======== Call for Participation ========
> Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare
> April 11, 2010, Atlanta Georgia USA
> Co-located with the annual CHI conference
> ================================
> Authors may present their work in one of two formats: Short Talks or
> Interactive Posters. Short Talks are brief oral presentations by the
> author, while interactive posters focus more on visual presentation
> and discussion between the author and attendees around the poster. We
> expect the majority of presentations to be interactive posters with a
> limited subset of people invited to give short talks. If you do not
> want to be considered for the short talk track, preferring only the
> poster presentation format, please make this known to the chairs. See
> also the WISH website:
> ***Submissions***
> Both short talk and posters should submit a four page paper in the ACM
> extended abstracts format. Submissions may also be shorter in length
> as is appropriate for content and your community.  Accepted
> submissions are published in the WISH 2010 proceedings but not the ACM
> digital library. Authors retain all copyright. We encourage
> preliminary ideas, design sketches, experimental results, policy and
> theoretical contributions, works in progress, and any other health and
> interactive systems related content.  The goal is to foster
> discussion, encourage broad ideas, and bring together a wide
> interdisciplinary audience.  Thus, we encourage people to submit from
> a wide variety of disciplines.  Also, we encourage people in
> attendance at the Wellness, Aging, and other related workshops on
> April 10 to also submit to and attend WISH. A submission should include:
> 	* A concise description of the idea(s)
> 	* Results, findings, or theoretical discussion
> 	* The implications of the work to the interdisciplinary community who
> may be present
> 	* Recommendations for further investigation
> Full literature searches are not expected, although relevant citations
> should be included.
> The paper and abstract, as submitted for review, will be regarded as
> the final publication-ready version of your submission. Therefore, the
> abstract and paper submission must be clearly written, carefully
> proofread, and correctly formatted.
> ***How to Submit***
> Upload your submission in PDF format to the WISH Electronic Submission
> Web site at by 5:00pm PST
> 6 January 2010. Follow the instructions for the file upload and enter
> the requested information, including author information, keywords, and
> abstract. Note that the process of producing a PDF file of your
> submission can sometimes cause changes in the length of the
> contributions. Authors are advised to generate and check PDFs of their
> submissions to verify that their final submission stays within the
> length restrictions of the WISH submission process.
> *** Mentoring Program***
> We are pleased to offer a mentoring program to pair students, post-
> doctoral researchers, and people relatively new to health+HCI research
> (e.g., clinicians, junior faculty, people switching fields) with
> senior members of the field.  This mentoring program will include a
> joint dinner with these individuals and some time for 1:1 meetings.
> We also hope to be able to offer fellowships to attend WISH and CHI
> corresponding with this program.  The size of each grant will be
> decided on a per-case basis and can be applied to registration,
> travel, and lodging. Preference will be given to people who: (a) have
> demonstrated need; (b) have not recently attended CHI and who might
> not otherwise attend the conference; (c) have work accepted to the
> workshop; (d) are  at a stage in their careers that they would benefit
> from mentorship.
