The conference will accept both regular and short papers. Regular papers (7-10 pages in length) will describe more mature ideas, where a substantial amount of implementation, experimentation, or data collection and analysis will be described. Short papers (1-6 pages) can be less formal and will describe innovative ideas where a less degree of validation and implementation have occurred. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system at https://easychair.org/
ICHI uses blind reviewing, and therefore ICHI submissions should have the names and affiliations of authors listed on the paper.
ICHI 2015 has three tracks: analytics, systems, and human factors.
- The analytics track focuses on data analysis.
- The systems track focuses on building health informatics systems (e.g., architecture, framework, design, engineering, and application).
- The human factors track focuses on understanding users or context, interface design, and user studies of health informatics applications.
When submitting a paper, the authors must select a track and three or more topics that they regard as the most appropriate one for their paper. The topics listed above are not limited to any particular track. For example, a paper on information technologies for healthcare delivery can be assigned to the systems track or human factors track depending on the focus of the research work. Before the review process starts, the PC co-chairs will check each paper and make adjustment if necessary to ensure the submission will be reviewed in the correct track.
A subset of highly-ranked papers will have oral presentation slots. The other accepted papers, which are not selected for oral presentation, will be presented as posters. The conference organizers will work on ensuring that poster sessions are well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment.
Submitted papers must not have appeared in, or be under consideration for, another conference, workshop, journal, or other target of publication.
All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically.
Submissions must adhere to the following formatting instructions.
Papers must adhere to the IEEE Proceedings Format available here for LaTex and Word (please, be sure to use the template’s conference mode, see template documentation for details). Changing the template’s font size, margins, inter-column spacing, or line spacing is prohibited. Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5″ x 11″ paper (i.e., US letter format).
The length of submission depends on the type of submission:
- Regular papers must be 7-10 pages long.
- Short papers may be at most 6 pages long.
