We've got an impressive Steering Committee lined up for the upcoming workshop and CHI 2010 is a great place for this event. There's a Call for Participation out now for presenting work. However, the event is open to the entire CHI community on the 11th.

Location: Collocated with CHI 2010 in Atlanta, GA

In recent years, the biomedical informatics community has begun to recognize human-computer interaction (HCI) and better understanding of social and human elements as important to a sound Health IT strategy. Meanwhile, research in human-computer interaction has found health care a rich and interesting domain of inquiry. Despite this progress, however, there exists a largely untapped potential to create deeper and more profound connections among the medical, informatics, human-computer interaction, medical sociology and anthropology communities.

The Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH) will take place April 10th and 11th, 2010 in conjunction with the CHI 2010 conference. This event is designed to foster conversation and bridge communities and will include specialists in biomedical informatics, nursing informatics, medical sociology, human-computer interaction, and related fields.
