Call For Papers

AIS SIG-Health Sponsored Workshop

December 10, 2017, 1:00pm-5:30pm – Seoul, South Korea
Design, Innovation, and Impact of Healthcare IT

The SIG Health Workshop is a pre-conference activity of the International
Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) hosted by the Special Interest
Group Health IT (SIGHEALTH). It provides a forum for those working on
information technology in the context of healthcare. We welcome both
research-in-progress and completed work on a broad range of topics and
methodologies. Authors do not have to be SIG-Health members to participate.

The papers will not be included in conference proceedings and so authors
retain all copyrights to their work. However, accepted papers will be
listed with author names, affiliations and title on the AIS SIG-Health
website. Authors will have the option to include their final extended
abstract on the website as well.

The workshop is restricted to 40 participants and will include
presentations and roundtable discussions. All submitted work will be
reviewed by the co-chairs and other workshop authors. All accepted papers
will then be presented and discussed during roundtable discussions to
provide authors with help, feedback, suggestions, and to facilitate future
collaborations. We will have 3-5 authors per table to facilitate
discussion.  The two papers with highest review scores will be presented to
all workshop attendees.  The interactive format of the workshop is geared
towards providing a high degree of feedback to authors with promising
early-stage work, but is certainly open to developed and completed research
as well.
