AMCIS 2014 Research Workshop: Human-Computer Interaction in Health and Wellness

AMCIS Research Workshop

Call For Papers on Human-Computer Interaction in Health and Wellness


– 2014 Research Workshop Jointly Hosted by AIS SIG-Health and SIGHCI

– Associated Special Issue of AIS Transactions in Human-Computer Interaction



– Research Workshop Submissions Due from Authors: June 1, 2014

– Acceptance Notifications Will Be Returned to Authors by: June 15, 2014

– Workshop Camera Ready Papers Due from Authors: July 15, 2014

– The Research Workshop will be hosted in conjunction with AMCIS 2014 in Savannah, GA, USA and is scheduled to be held from 8am – 1pm on Thursday, August 7, 2014


The research workshop promotes the creation and refinement of scholarship that addresses the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Health and/or Wellness fields. Several selected papers from the workshop will be invited for further development toward publication in a special issue of AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction (THCI) to be titled “HCI in Health and Wellness”.

All related research topics and methods are welcomed; priority will be placed on selecting papers that:
– Clearly address topics relating to HCI and Health and/or Wellness
– Incorporate development and/or empirical evaluation of theory that is testable (i.e., falsifiable)
– Are submitted in substantially complete form


Workshop participants will discuss their work in small groups led by scholars with editorial experience in the areas of HCI, health, and wellness. Discussions will be facilitated so that each author has equitable time to receive feedback. This structure provides opportunity to strengthen the submitted papers for future journal submission.


  • Submit papers as email attachments in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format to Vance Wilson (). Expect your submission to be acknowledged within 48 hours.
  • All reviewing will be conducted in double-blind format and will be primarily performed by program committee members selected for expertise and interest in the topic area.
  • Notification regarding acceptance of your submission will be sent via email to the submitting author.
  • – Because this is a workshop rather than paper publication venue, there is no restriction on concurrent submission of manuscripts to a conference (such as AMCIS) or a journal.


Ideal papers will be no more than 35 pages in length (maximum 8000 words), double spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, following THCI guidelines ( Longer papers will be considered if the length is well motivated.
