Call for Industry Track

In addition to traditional academic tracks, the ICHI Conference Series has been fostering the active participation of industry. To that end, we cordially invite submissions of papers describing research, innovation and implementations that are applicable and demonstrate high practical value to the industry in areas including but not limited to:

Information technologies and tools for healthcare delivery and management

Health data acquisition and visualization, privacy preservation

Data analytics, data mining, and machine learning

Healthcare data & knowledge management and decision support

Healthcare actuarial analytics

Provider network analytics

Community benefit systems

Social behavior and network systems

Health information systems

Healthcare communication networks and environments

Smart and connected health technologies

The target audience includes, but is not limited to, providers, payors, public health organizations, other healthcare industry, government, and non-profit settings. The primary emphasis is on papers that advance the understanding of, and show how to deal with, practical issues ranging from privacy, data exchange and sharing to deploying analytics technologies. This track is distinct from the Research Track in that submissions solve real-world problems and focus on systems that have large utility in the healthcare industry.

Paper Preparation

The industry track will accept both short papers and demonstrations that have clear applications in industry or government.

Short papers (2-4 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

Papers should be should be submitted electronically at EasyChair: ICHI 2017.

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.
