Call for Workshops

SCOPE OF WORKSHOPS

Following the success history of the workshops at the ICHI 2013 Conference in Philadelphia (PA), we cordially invite you to submit your workshop proposal to the IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics (ICHI 2014) to be held in Verona on September 15th-17th, 2014.

Every workshop at ICHI 2014 can be half-day or one-day.  It will be held as part of ICHI 2014. 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 2014 can be found at http://ichi2014.di.univr.it/partecipants/topics/.

Workshops are tentatively scheduled for Sept 17th, 2014. 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 goal is to stimulate interactive conversations and inspire new research ideas in focused areas. The workshop organizers can determine the format that may include paper presentations, invited talks, and panels that will foster the interaction and discussion of the audiences.

The approved workshop organizers are responsible to invite and review submissions, decide the workshop program, and coordinate the workshop.
