IHI 2012 is the flagship symposium on health informatics promoted by the
Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Health
Informatics (ACM SIGHIT). IHI is designed to run as an annual showcase for
exciting and innovative research on techniques and technologies developed in
universities, hospitals, research labs, and companies all over the world.

keynote speeches, regular papers, short papers, demonstrations, free
tutorials, panels, extended abstracts, and doctoral consortium. Selected
regular papers and short papers will be presented in oral sessions. Other

specifically designed to encourage conversation and discussion. The
symposium will cover the breadth of problems faced by the community: health
informatics education, telemedicine, systems for decision support,
human-centered design, information retrieval techniques for health
applications, accessibility to personalized predictive modeling techniques,
and so on. A highlight of the conference is that we will give awards for the
best paper and the best student paper.
