(Formerly the SIG-Health Pre-ICIS Workshop)

An AIS SIG-Health Sponsored Workshop

Date/Time: Sunday, December 11, 2022, Copenhagen, Denmark, 1pm-5pm local time

Theme: Next Generation of Digitization in Healthcare

HITS (formerly the SIG-Health Pre-ICIS 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. Please note that the papers do not have to fit the theme, just relate to health IT in general.

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, title, and brief abstract on the AIS SIG-Health website.

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. There will be a featured presentation from the 2022 Best Paper Award awardees to all participants. 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.

Submission Instructions

We will request brief abstracts and short papers for presentation at the workshop. Papers must be in

To submit a paper:

  • Submit your work at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hits2022
  • Create a single pdf file containing a brief abstract (150 words maximum) and paper that is no longer than six pages (blinded, 11-pt Times New Roman font, one-inch margins on four sides, double-spaced).

Please note the brief abstract and short paper format of this workshop. Manuscripts which fail to
comply with the formatting requirements will likely be rejected. Do not send full length papers. This
workshop is designed to give authors of papers at many stages of development timely feedback.
Therefore, authors need to adhere to the format guidelines to facilitate a timely review process.

Please note: By submitting, the author team agrees to perform two reviews of other papers submitted
to the workshop. This is done to ensure each manuscript gets two reviews.
