CALL FOR PAPERS: 2017 AIS SIG-Health Pre-ICIS Workshop

Design, Innovation, and Impact of Healthcare IT

December 10, 2017, 1:00pm-5:30pm, Seoul, South Korea

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.
