Call for Demos


We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the demo track of the IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics, 2015 (ICHI 2015) host in Dallas, Texas. The ICHI demo track provides an excellent platform for researchers, practitioners, and commercial/industrial/non-profit institutions to showcase their latest innovative healthcare informatics systems or applications. The demo program will be featured prominently in the conference.

The demo review process will look for practical uses of technology and also for a “wow” factor in all submissions. We encourage the description of prototypes as long as they clearly present a coherent, end-to-end view of what the application might become once it gets deployed in production.

The typical submission should include a demo paper and can optionally include a demo video, whose URL should be referred to in the textual demo description for reviewers to take into consideration when evaluating the submission. Note that the demo paper should differ from regular papers in several important aspects. First, it should clearly describe the overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated. Second, the paper should put great emphasis on the motivation of the work, on the applications of the presented system or technology, and on the novelty of the work. Third, the paper should clearly describe the demo scenario. In particular, it should detail how the audience can interact with the proposed system, to better understand the underlying technology. For demos running over the web, a back-up scenario should be described, in case connectivity is limited at the demo venue.

All topics described in the Call for Papers are eligible for demo track submissions.


All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically. Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • The author(s) name and affiliation(s) must be present in the submitted document. Any submitted demo proposal violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review.
  • Papers must adhere to the IEEE Proceedings Format available in LaTeX and Word template. Altering the template’s font size, margins, inter-column spacing, or line spacing is prohibited. Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
  • The length of submission is 4 pages. This page limit includes all parts of the proposal: title, abstract, body, and bibliography.
  • The optional demo video should focus on illustrating the demo scenario and the interactive nature of the demo system. The video must be no more than three minutes in length and should start by clearly identifying the authors and title of the proposal. The video should be in common video format (e.g., MPEG, AVI), and should be playable on a wide variety of media players. We strongly encourage authors to produce and submit a demo video that will be linked off of the final program on the conference website (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo).

The submissions should be done through the EasyChair submission system.

The notification for acceptance of demo papers is the same as that for regular papers. Accepted demo proposals will be included in the final conference proceedings.


  • Demo paper submission deadline: June 15, 2015
  • Notification of acceptance: August 1, 2015
  • Camera-ready copy due: August 15, 2015 August 21, 2015
