like papers to highlight what the key challenges in this area are from
recruiting users and patients to designing with and for diverse
stakeholders to methodologies for evaluating in homes, communities and at

The goal of the workshop is to share experiences and to identify not only
the challenges of working between these two disciplines but also the
opportunities that arise because of the crossing over between health and
HCI research in recent years. This will be a full one day workshop on
Saturday 18th April and will combine short oral presentations for the
accepted authors with posters, discussions and interactive sessions to
actively prepare a vision statement for HCI and Health research during the
workshop that can be shared with the rest of the CHI community.

*Submission Process*

Position papers should be 2-4 pages CHI ACM extended abstract format. These
can be case studies, short reports on recent work or reflections on
