The Workgroup on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH) brings together industry and academic researchers in HCI and biomedical informatics to develop a cross-disciplinary research agenda that will drive future innovations. In addition, the workshop facilitates a common, safe space to share and discuss methods, study designs, and dissemination within each community. The series of previous WISH workshops has actively provided mentoring opportunities to junior and new health informatics researchers – from undergraduates to mid-career researchers who want to change their focus. This will be the sixth WISH in the series of successful workshops that has helped bring together different research communities around challenges of designing, implementing, and evaluating interactive health technologies.

This year’s WISH will be co-located with the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in Glasgow, Scotland, May 4-5 2019 and take place as part of pre-conference program of CHI 2019.
