Call for Industry Track


We cordially invite submissions of papers describing research, innovation and implementations that are applicable and show demonstrate high practical value to the industry in areas including but not limited to:

  • Information technologies and tools for healthcare delivery and management
  • Health data acquisition and visualization, privacy preservation
  • Data analytics, data mining, and machine learning
  • Healthcare data & knowledge management and decision support
  • Healthcare actuarial analytics
  • Provider network analytics
  • Community benefit systems
  • Social behavior and network systems
  • Health information systems
  • Healthcare communication networks and environments
  • Smart health technologies

The application domains of interest include, but are not limited to providers, payors, public health organizations, other healthcare industry, government, or non-profit settings. The primary emphasis is on papers that advance the understanding of, and show how to deal with, practical issues related ranging from privacy, data exchange and sharing to deploying analytics technologies. This track is distinct from the Research Track in that submissions solve real-world problems and focus on systems that have large utility in real word healthcare industry.


The industry track will accept both short papers and demonstrations that have clear applications in the industry or government.

Short papers (2-4 pages) should describe innovative ideas or implementations of practical significance with validated results. They may also provide insight into issues and factors that affect the successful use and deployment of information and analytic systems or new interesting discoveries made from data that are useful to the community.

Papers submitted for demonstration should be 4 pages in limit including all parts of a proposal: title, abstract, body, and bibliography. The demo paper should provide a description of the objective of the system, the novel intellectual content of the underlying system and of the system architecture. In addition an overview of what would be demonstrated to the audience should be clearly elicited. The system should solve a non-trivial real-world problem.

The camera-ready of accepted papers must observe the same page limits. Industry track content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.


The review process will include multiple experts from relevant industries for the applications.

ICHI uses blind reviewing, and therefore ICHI submissions should NOT have the names and affiliations of authors listed on the paper.
