*Call for Papers: AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction Special
Issue on **Human-Computer Interaction in Health and Wellness*


   - Submission deadline: End of day, November 30, 2014
   - Initial review decision returned to authors: By January 15, 2015

THCI is a high-quality peer-reviewed international scholarly journal on
Human-Computer Interaction. It is published by AIS (http://home.aisnet.org/)
and sponsored by AIS SIGHCI (http://sighci.org/). As an AIS journal, THCI
is oriented to the Information Systems community, emphasizing applications
in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. However, it
is open to all related communities that share intellectual interests in HCI
phenomena and issues. The editorial objective is to enhance and communicate
knowledge about the interplay among humans, information, technologies, and
tasks in order to guide the development and use of human-centered
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and services for
individuals, groups, organizations, and communities.

AIS SIG-Health and SIGHCI are jointly sponsoring this special issue to
motivate high-quality research in areas of health and wellness that overlap
human-computer interaction topics. We invite all related research topics
and methods. However, priority will be placed on selecting papers that:

   - Clearly address topics related to both HCI and Health/Wellness
   - Incorporate development and/or empirical evaluation of theory that is
   testable (i.e., falsifiable)


   - Submit papers as email attachments in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat
   (PDF) format to Vance Wilson (vancewilson at gmail.com). Expect your
   submission to be acknowledged within 48 hours.
   - Reviewing will be performed by individuals selected for expertise and
   interest in the topic area.

Ideal papers will be no more than 35 pages in length (8000 words), double
spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, following THCI guidelines (
http://aisel.aisnet.org/thci/authorinfo.html).  Longer papers will be
considered if the length is well motivated.
