We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the non-refereed extended abstract track of the 2nd ACM SIGHIT International Health Informatics Symposium (IHI 2012).

      The non-refereed extended abstract track offers an opportunity for health informatics practitioners and researchers to present their work in progress in two ways: (1) as a poster presentation at the IHI conference and (2) as an article in the SIGHIT Record, the newsletter of SIGHIT ( Extended abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings. All topics described in the Call for Papers are eligible for extended abstract submissions.

      Each extended abstract should be 1 page in length. Submissions must not have appeared in, or be under consideration for, another conference, workshop, journal, or other target of publication.
      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 ACM Proceedings Format available for LaTex, WordPerfect, WordPerfect 9, and Word. Changing the template's font size, margins, inter-column spacing, or line spacing is prohibited. Each extended abstract must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper.
      • Submissions should not list keywords, general terms, and categories and subject descriptions. In addition, submissions should not have the copyright notice located at the bottom of the left column of the first page of the ACM Proceedings template.
      The conference organizers will work on ensuring that poster sessions are well attended and have a vibrant discussion environment.
      Although the non-refereed extended abstract submissions will not be formally reviewed, the IHI 2012 conference organizers will read all of the submissions to ensure every accepted submission is appropriate for IHI.
