Call for Tutorial Proposals

Following the success of tutorials at past ICHI Conferences, we cordially invite you to submit your tutorial proposal to ICHI 2019.

Tutorials at ICHI 2019 will be presented by domain experts to cover current topics directly relevant to the conference theme of computing-oriented health informatics. A list of topics of interest to ICHI 2019 include health data science, health informatics, innovative technologies and implementation science. Proposed tutorials should be comprehensive, informative, and appealing to ICHI 2019 attendees.

Tutorials can be half-day/3hours or full-day/6hours in length. Tutorial instructors must make a commitment to prepare tutorial materials (e.g., slides) that reflect the high-quality standard of ICHI.

Tutorial chairs will receive free registration for the conference (one per tutorial).

All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program.

Proposal Preparation

Each tutorial proposal should have two parts:

Part 1: A 1-page extended abstract that includes: the title of the tutorial, the name and affiliation of the instructor(s), a description of the tutorial scope, the intended audience, and what new knowledge and perspectives the audience will gain by attending the tutorial, and a short biography of the instructor(s). This extended abstract will appear in the conference proceedings and, in its final form, 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).

Part 2: A full tutorial proposal that is at most 4 pages long and must include the following sections:

  • Description: A description of the main topics to be covered during the tutorial.
  • Audience: What background will an attendee need to follow the tutorial (e.g., novice, expert, etc)?
  • Aims and Objectives: State the learning objectives and describe them as needed.
  • Case Studies (optional): If relevant, a description of real-world systems, experiences, and/or case studies to be discussed.
  • CVs: Short CV for the instructor(s).
  • Other: Any other information (e.g., previous tutorials given) that will assist the PC Co-Chairs and Conference Leadership to adequately review the tutorial proposal.

No specific format is required, but the overall length of the proposal should not exceed 5 pages (1 for the Part 1, and 3-4 for Part 2).
