HICSS-44 Call for Papers (Due June 15, 2010): Cyberinfrastructure for Public Health and Health Services

HICSS-44 - Call For Papers
Submissions Due June 15, 2010
Cyberinfrastructure for Public Health and Health Services

We invite your submission the “Cyberinfrastructure for Public Health and Health Services” minitrack in the Information Technology in Healthcare Track at 2011 Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) (see minitrack summary below). This minitrack is a significant step forward in outlining infrastructure, applications, user, policy, and research needs to ensure an effective cyberinfrastructure for public health and health services.

The success of the minitrack will depend on the participation of experts like you. Please accept our personal invitation to submit a paper to the minitrack. Also, you may feel free to forward this invitation to your colleagues.

Papers may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial, or descriptive in nature with original content and not previously published or under submission elsewhere. All submissions undergo a double-blind peer referee process. Those selected will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society and carried by Xplore, the IEEE Digital Library (http://computer.org/press).

Track: Information Technology in Health Care

Minitrack: Cyberinfrastructure for Public Health and Health Services

The 2003 National Science Foundation Blue Ribbon Panel on Infrastructure found that “a new age has dawned in scientific and engineering research, pushed by continuing progress in computing, information, and communication technology, and pulled by the expanding complexity, scope, and scale of today’s challenges. The capacity of this technology has crossed thresholds that now make possible a comprehensive cyberinfrastructure on which to build new types of scientific and engineering knowledge environments and organizations and to pursue research in new ways and with increased efficacy.”

At HICSS-43, an exciting new mini-track evolved from a special day-long session at HICSS-42 on the application of cyberinfrastructure to public health and health services. Many interesting papers were presented around action research and electronic systems to improve health services.

We are now inviting papers for HICSS-44 for the Cyberinfrastructure for Public Health and Health Services Minitrack. Appropriate submissions involve:

• Action Research: Cyberinfrastructure systems in the areas of Health Promotion, Cancer Prevention and Treatment, Emergency Response, and Chronic Disease and Disability Management
• Emerging Networks: Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN), Public Health Information Network (PHIN), Cancer Research Network (CRN)) and International Networks as models for applications and research cyberinfrastructure
• Monitoring and Prevention: Cyberinfrastructure in Public health, chronic condition, and general health management
• Demonstrations: Health Provider Use of Electronic Systems to Improve Health Service and Clinical Trial Delivery
• Education: Medical Education and Training and Related Innovations in Teaching
• Health Care Reform and Policy: Cyberinfrastructure in ARRA funding opportunities (SHARP, CER, Policy, etc.)

The minitrack in interested in papers and presentations on these and related issues, including academic, industry, and policy perspectives.
