Call for Industry Track Proposals

The IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics Series has been fostering the active participation of industry. We cordially invite submissions describing practical implementations of healthcare informatics in areas including but not limited to:

  • Healthcare delivery and operations management
  • Health data visualization
  • Health data acquisition and privacy preservation
  • Health knowledge management
  • Clinical decision support
  • Healthcare actuarial decision
  • Health system optimization
  • Community and Public Health
  • Health behavior
  • Mobile health
  • Smart environments

Submissions are expected to demonstrate how the proposed work has impacted healthcare practice, and/or provide practical insights regarding the realities of implementing healthcare informatics solutions in the field. One or more of the following criteria will be used to determine appropriateness for acceptance: demonstration of path for integration into product, demonstration of current clinical usage and impact on workflow, demonstration of significant improvement to current care practice through clinical validation.

Proposal Preparation

The industry track will accept both short papers and demonstrations.

Short papers (4-6 pages) should describe innovative ideas or implementations of practical significance with validated results. They may also provide insight into issues and factors that affect the successful use and deployment of information and analytics systems or new interesting discoveries made from data that are useful to the community.

Demo papers (max. 4 pages) should include all parts of other demo proposals: title, abstract, body, and bibliography. Demo papers should provide a description of the objective of the system, the novel intellectual content of the underlying system and of the system architecture. In addition, an overview of what would be demonstrated to the audience should be clearly explained. The system should solve a non-trivial, real-world problem.

The camera-ready of accepted papers must observe the same page limits, and 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. Industry track content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Submission and Reviewing

Industry track proposals should be submitted electronically at:

The conference can be searched on the IEEE ICHI website with the conference title 'International Conference on Health Informatics'.

The review process will include multiple experts from relevant industries for the applications.

ICHI uses single-blind reviewing, and therefore ICHI submissions should have the names and affiliations of authors listed on the paper.

Important Dates

Short paper and demo submission deadline: Apr 5, 2019

Notification of acceptance: Apr 19, 2019
