IEEE ICHI is a premier community forum concerned with the application of computer science, information science, data science, and information principles, as well as information technology, and communication science and technology to address problems and support research in healthcare, medicine, life science, public health, and everyday wellness.

The conference highlights the most novel technical contributions to stakeholder-centered technology innovation for benefiting human health and the related social and ethical implications.

Dr. Zhe He is the Leading General Co-Chair for ICHI 2024. Dr. Mia Lustria is a Poster and Demo Co-Chair, Mafe Brooks is a Local Co-Chair, and Dr. Balu Bhasuran is Publication Co-Chair.

In his role as the Leading General Co-Chair, Dr. He is responsible for the overall planning and execution of the conference. Dr. He told CCI that UF and FSU have a long history of collaboration in Healthcare Informatics and he is excited for IEEE ICHI to be held in Florida. “It will be a wonderful event for researchers and practitioners to present their best work, socialize, and find collaborators.”

As the Publication Co-Chair, Dr. Bhasuran will manage the production of the conference publication, including the final program and technical papers. He shared with CCI that he is most excited for the opportunity to learn from and network with other experts in the field, saying, “I am always eager to hear about the latest research and developments, and sharing my own work and ideas with others.”

“I am new to this conference and am honored to serve on the organizing committee,” shared Dr. Lustria. “Past committees have largely been composed of experts on the computational aspects of health informatics, so I am particularly excited that someone who has more of a focus on consumer health informatics and human-computer interaction research gets to have a seat at the table.”

The deadline for regular and short paper submissions, as well as tutorial proposals, posters & demo, and doctoral consortium is January 21, 2024.
