PhD Students Track Call for Papers

The 7th ACM Digital Health (DH) conference, taking place in London, UK on July 2-5, 2017, is a multidisciplinary event designed to foster research collaboration in this emerging area of research. DH is aiming to inspire early stage researchers developing a career in this field. The PhD Student Track is designing to provide high quality feedback to doctoral students by offering an opportunity to students to present their work to a group of mentors and peers. Students currently pursuing a PhD in a field related to digital health are invited to submit progress reports of up to 2 pages. As these reports will be included in the conference proceedings, they should clearly outline the project, and provide at least one result from ongoing work (that is, not just a project proposal).

The deadlines (same as Main track):

  • Submission Deadline: Mon, February 13th, 2017
    EXTENDED! Mon, February 20th, 2017
  • Notification of Acceptance: Thursday, April 6, 2017
  • Camera-Ready Deadline: Thursday, April 20, 2017

The submissions should indicate the stage of the PhD (e.g. early stage, preparation of viva/defense) and should follow general DH submission guidelines and ACM 2 column formatting. Contributions are sought regardless of the stage of the research project, from both information/technology and medical/health fields.

Students are also encouraged to submit full papers to the main track, if the project is advanced.
