HISI Conference 2020 - Call for Papers & Posters

The Health Informatics Society of Ireland (HISI) invites you to become a member (student membership is free) and submit high-quality paper and poster contributions for the HISI Annual Conference which will be hosted online, on November 18th/19th and 25th/ 26th. Your position papers, research findings, case experiences will contribute to the successful implementation of eGovernment, eHealth or eInclusion services in Ireland, Europe and beyond. HISI invites contributions of both an empirical and theoretical nature, from a legal, societal, cultural, commercial, organisational and/or technical perspective. While identification of problem areas and challenges is important, contributions that also contribute towards solving challenges are preferred.

Posters will also be accepted in size A0, portrait. Please state paper or poster on your submission.

The deadline for abstract submission is 19th October 2020.

Successful authors will be invited to present their work online at the Conference in November.

Article guidelines

• Abstract summary of 200-300 words.

• Keywords and  key sentence.

• Tables, pictures and figures sent as attachments.

• References: Vancouver style.

Type of material and style

Papers should be original and of high quality and if published elsewhere, they should provide for a different perspective. For example, research papers and case studies that help towards promoting, sharing and re-using knowledge, experiences and lessons learnt. The style and terminology used and the ideas expressed should be clear and accessible to a wide audience. Such clarity should not be detrimental to the depth and precision of contents.
