The conference theme is: Sustainable Health Informatics – The last decades have seen the emergence of the awareness that innovations and technologies should be sustainable. Innovative technologies are developed for and implemented in health facilities and national health systems to improve the patient experience of care, the overall health of populations, and to reduce the per capita cost of healthcare. Yet, health structures, systems, their users, and their needs may change at fast pace: national and local health policies evolve, infrastructures and other technologies are upgraded or grow old, users’ profiles and needs may change. In these moving sociotechnical contexts, how sustainable and context sensitive are healthcare innovations and our researches in the field? What level or temporal span of sustainability should we aim for and how to achieve it? In light of these questions, the conference encourages (but does not restrict) submissions in the following topics: ergonomics, human and socio-technical factors, informatics, data management, public health, patient safety, quality management and regulation, innovative technology for patients and professionals (please go to http://www.cshi2019.org/ for more details)

Accepted papers will be published in a full open access IOS Press series of “Studies in Health Technology and Informatics” and indexed in PubMed. Papers should be formatted to IOS Press requirements that are available on the conference website. Submissions will open on September 1st, 2018 and close on February 3rd, 2019.
