Health informatics is a discipline meeting at the intersection of the health profession and the computer science/informatics profession. Although traditionally used by healthcare profssionals, health informatics applications are now increasingly being developed for use by the patients themselves, and this presents significant challenges with respect to, e.g., usability, since many patients are frail, disabled or have cognitive impairments.

The workshop will bring together researchers, practitioners and administrators from different disciplines concerned with issues of health informatics in the fields of technology, healthcare and the human and social sciences.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:


Papers should be submitted to EasyChair at the following address:

Accepted papers will be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings (ISSN 1613-0073).
