SCOPE OF THE DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
We cordially invite doctoral students to submit their extended abstracts to, and participate in, the doctoral consortium of the IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics (ICHI 2013).
The doctorial consortium is expected to offer a supportive learning opportunity for doctoral students in the early stage of their research on health informatics related problems to discuss their work in progress and to receive feedback and guidance from the ICHI Doctoral Consortium mentors. Extended abstracts will not appear in the ICHI conference proceedings. All topics described in the Call for Papers are eligible for extended abstract submissions.
Each extended abstract should be 2-page in length, containing title, motivation, problem statement, proposed methodology, progress/results so far, outstanding issues, and related work and references. Submissions must not have appeared in, or be under consideration for, another conference, workshop, journal, or other target of publication.
All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically. Submissions must adhere to the following formatting instructions:
All extended abstract submissions for the doctoral consortium will be formally reviewed by the ICHI Program Committee to ensure every accepted submission is appropriate for ICHI.
The conference organizers will work on ensuring that the doctoral consortium is well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment.
