SCOPE OF TUTORIAL PROPOSALS
We cordially invite you to submit your tutorial proposal to the IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics (ICHI 2013).
Tutorials at ICHI 2013 will be presented by domain experts to cover
current topics directly relevant to the conference theme of
computing-oriented health informatics (a list of ICHI areas/topics can
be found in the Call for Papers). Proposed tutorials should be
comprehensive, informative, and appealing to ICHI 2013 attendees.
Each tutorial will be 120-minutes
long. Tutorial instructors must make a commitment to prepare the
tutorial materials (e.g., slides) that reflect the high quality standard
Tutorials will be free to all ICHI 2012 attendees, and tutorial
instructors will receive free registration but not any financial aid
from the conference.
All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program.
Each tutorial proposal should have two parts:
- Part 1: A 1-page extended abstract
that includes: the title of the tutorial, the name and affiliation of
the instructor(s), a description of the tutorial scope, the intended
audience, and what new knowledge and perspectives the audience will gain
by attending the tutorial, and a short biography of the instructor(s).
This extended abstract will appear in the conference proceedings.
- Part 2: A full tutorial proposal that is at most 4 pages long and includes:
a. A description of the main topics to be covered during the tutorial;
b. Targeted audience and aims/objectives;
c. If relevant, a description of real-world systems, experiences, and/or case studies to be discussed;
d. More information on the instructor (e.g., biography/awards/home page);
e. Any other information (e.g.,
previous tutorials given) that will assist the PC Co-Chairs and
Conference Leadership to adequately review the tutorial proposal.
All aspects of the submission and
notification process will be handled electronically. Submissions must
adhere to the following formatting instructions:
- Submissions must adhere to the IEEE
Proceedings Format available for LaTex and Word. Changing the template's
font size, margins, inter-column spacing, or line spacing is

- Each accepted tutorial will appear in the conference proceedings as a 1-page extended abstract.
Tutorial proposals will be reviewed
by the PC Co-Chairs and the Conference Leadership, based on the ICHI
