Co-located with the American Medical Informatics Association’s Fall

October 22, 2011

Washington, DC


With the growing emphasis on the adoption and impact of Health IT (HIT), HIT
researchers and practitioners are increasingly focusing on the design of
interactive systems, human factors, and human-computer interaction. Despite
this progress, however, there exists a largely untapped potential to create
deeper and more profound connections among the biomedical, informatics,
human-computer interaction, human factors, medical sociology and
anthropology communities that would lead to the development of new methods,
approaches, and techniques for removing the barriers to the adoption of HIT.

To address this limitation, the Association of Computing and Machinery (ACM)
Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI'2010) hosted the 2010
Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH 2010, The workshop attracted over 150 participants
from a variety of disciplines and institutions and included a combination of
invited panels, keynote presentations and research presentations. At WISH
2010, researchers and practitioners discussed the most pressing issues in
the design, development, and evaluation of HIT and the impact of the new
research on commercial HIT systems.

Building on the success of last year's workshop, the American Medical
Informatics Association is hosting WISH 2011, which will be collocated with
its Annual Symposium in Washington, DC, on October 22nd, 2011. The workshop
will be a part of the pre-AMIA program, and will have a format similar to
WISH 2010, including invited talks, panels and a peer-reviewed technical


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 authors
being invited to give short talks.

Both short talk and posters should submit a five page (maximum length) paper
in the AMIA submission format (
Accepted submissions will be published in the WISH 2011 proceedings. 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 of the workshop is to foster discussion, encourage broad ideas, and
bring together a wide interdisciplinary audience.  A submission should

                • 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 reviews 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.

Please email your submission in PDF format to [log in to unmask] by
5:00pm PST 1 August 2011. You will receive an acknowledgement of the receipt
of your submission.

If there are any questions or a need for further information, please send an
email to [log in to unmask]

We look forward to seeing you in Washington at WISH.
