                            2nd Call for Workshop Proposals
ICHI 2016 – IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics
                  Chicago, Illinois, USA, October 4-7, 2016
                     Submission Deadline: March 11, 2016

Scope of the workshops
Following the success history of the workshops at the ICHI Conference we 
cordially invite you to submit your workshop proposal to the IEEE 
International Conference on Healthcare Informatics (ICHI 2016) to be held 
in Chicago on October 4-7, 2016.

Every workshop at ICHI 2016 can be half-day or one-day. It will be held as 
part of ICHI 2016. Topics should be relevant to healthcare informatics. We 
are particularly interested in the emerging topics that will draw 
attention from the community. A full list of current topics of interest in 
ICHI 2016 can be found at

The ideal ICHI workshop proposal will focus on a timely and emerging 
topic, and be able to attract a number of interesting and high-quality 
contributions that spark discussions in an informal setting. The 
organizers can determine the format of the workshop that may include paper 
presentations, invited talks, panels, or any other type of activity that 
will foster the interaction and discussion of the audiences. We strongly 
encourage interactive and communicative workshop formats that stimulate 
conversations and inspire new research ideas in focused areas. Therefore 
the amount of presentations should be kept to a minimum. The approved 
workshop organizers are responsible to invite and review submissions, 
decide the workshop program, and coordinate the workshop.

All ICHI workshop papers will be appear in the conference proceedings 
published by IEEE and will be made available on IEEE Explore. The workshop 
organizers will be invited to give a brief summary presentation of the 
workshop results in the ICHI plenary session. It is foreseen that 
workshops can be extended to a chapter in an edited book in a Healthcare 
Informatics series by CRC press (to be confirmed).
