Submissions

H3IT invites abstract submissions on a number of interdisciplinary and applied topics related to leveraging information technology in home and hospice care. There are two tracks:

  • Research track for submissions describing completed or ongoing research
  • Practice track for submissions describing issues related to practice and/or policy

By the Submission Deadline, the abstracts can be submitted to EasyChair by the corresponding authors at the following URL: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=h3it2017. Prior to submission, the corresponding authors will need to create an account on EasyChair if they do not already have one.

Each abstract should provide a one-page summary of an on-going or completed project written with at least 11-point fonts and one-half inch margin on all sides. The one-page limit excludes the list of references. If an abstract includes citations, the list of references should start from the beginning of the second page. The citations and references should follow a numbered style. The JAMIA style is recommended and preferrable. Each abstract must have a title and a list of the authors who significantly contributed to the study with their names, email addresses, and primary institutions. The body of an abstract should be structured as follows –

  • Research Track: 1) Background, 2) Methods, 3) Results, 4) Discussion, and 5) Conclusion.
  • Practice Track: 1) Problem Statement, 2) Learning Objectives (two to five), 3) Background, 4) Approach/Strategy 5) Findings/Observations/Results 6) Conclusion 7) Recommendations

The abstract submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the program committee (PC) considering a number of factors such as relevance, novelty, significance, and conformance to submission and formatting rules. The authors of the accepted abstracts will be notified by an email sent via EasyChair by the Notification of Acceptance Date. The authors are also encouraged to check the status of their submission on EasyChair periodically around the notification date to prevent any potential delays or problems with email communication.

The authors of the accepted abstracts will be required to perform the corrections or modifications suggested by the PC and provide a camera-ready copy to be archived by the H3IT conference. The accepted abstracts will be categorized by the PC for either oral or poster presentation. At least one author for each accepted abstract should register and present the study at the conference.
