CHI 2021 WS CFP: Realizing AI in Healthcare: Challenges Appearing in the Wild

CHI 2021 WS CFP: Realizing AI in Healthcare: Challenges Appearing in the Wild

Deadline: February 21st

More information: In conjunction with CHI 2021: May 8th and 9th 2021 [Online workshop]

DESCRIPTION This workshop will explore the role of HCI in enabling the implementation of AI in real-world healthcare. Drawing on fieldwork, prototypes, and case studies, we will reflect on key concepts in AI, including 'explainability', 'trust', and 'accuracy', to support researchers and developers in taking a more sociotechnical and human-centered perspective when using AI systems to change care delivery.

AI research has been growing steadily and promising to improve results for many areas of healthcare. HCI has contributed to these discussions, mainly with studies on explainability of advanced algorithms. However, only few machine learning systems make it to everyday care. This challenging move has been named the 'last mile' of AI in healthcare, emphasizing the sociotechnical uncertainties and unforeseen learnings from involving users in the design or use of AI-based systems. With this workshop we aim to set the stage for a new wave of HCI research that accounts for and begins to develop new insights, concepts, and methods, for going the 'last mile' with AI in healthcare.

CONTRIBUTING We expect position papers describing or discussing artifacts, empirical results, theoretical reflections, and design explorations, that reflect on insights, concepts, or methods related to the implementation and use of AI in healthcare. We encourage submissions from researchers, engineers, designers, data scientists, social scientists, medical professionals, and patients, who are interested in broadening reflections around human-centred AI in healthcare and the sociotechnical challenges appearing in the wild. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Empirical studies of healthcare AI in the wild
  • Methodological challenges for studying AI systems in the wild
  • Human-centred AI in the HCI design process
  • Theories and framings for broadening HCI approaches to AI and health
  • Sociotechnical impacts and critical perspectives
  • Expanding the conception of what AI-tools in healthcare should offer

Prospective participants are invited to submit a 4-5 pages position paper using the CHI 2021 Format - references are excluded from page count. Accepted position papers will be published by the ACM Digital Library. Non-academics can apply to the workshop with a motivation letter. Submissions should be sent to: by February 21st 2021.

Moreover, all authors will be invited to expand their research and submit a full paper to a special issue that is being prepared on the same topic for a key HCI journal.

IMPORTANT DATES February 21st 2021: Submission deadline March 19th 2021: Notification of acceptance April 23rd 2021: Camera-ready version of papers April 30th 2021: Short videos from authors May 8th and 9th 2021: Workshop at CHI 2021
