HISA 2013

Call for Submissions

THEME: Empowering patients and healthcare professionals with information and technologies.

The organizers for HISA 2013 invite original submissions that address the conference theme in the following categories:

  • Research papers (Peer-reviewed)
  • Presentations (Typically case studies and work-in-progress presentations.)
  • Panels
  • Workshops

Research papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. South African Computer Journal, the official journal of the South African Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists and accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training, will invite submission of the best papers from the conference, based on recommendations from the scientific programme committee. These papers will be reviewed to the journal’s standards, and must contain at least 30% additional material. Reviewing for the journal will be expedited to ensure publication of papers that do not require substantial changes in a special edition of SACJ in July 2013. SACJ is an open access journal with no cost for readers, enhancing your chances of being read and cited. To cover publication costs, the journal levies an open access charge, which can be waived for authors unable to fund such charges (usually met by university research offices, based on expected income from subsidized publications).

Presentation papers and workshops will be included in the conference proceedings in the form of abstracts.

The conference proceedings will be produced on CD-ROM.

The conference will be organized around the following major tracks and as such all research paper and presentation submissions should relate to one of these tracks:

  • Health Information, Systems and Technologies
  • e-Health in Africa
  • Medical Imaging Informatics
  • Nursing Informatics
  • Telemedicine and m-Health

Please see the submission templates below for more details regarding each submission type:
