EAI International Workshop – Graphical Interfaces in Healthcare


There has been a growing trend in applications’ development to support healthcare. One of the most important issues about those applications is the design of good quality, usable interfaces. In this workshop, it is intended to show the state of the art of the healthcare interfaces. This includes not only mobile but also computer interfaces related to healthcare. The papers should focus on data communication and visualization, interaction, usability, and user experience in healthcare systems and interfaces. The impact of the interfaces on information security is also a welcome topic.

The Special Session will focus on, but not be limited to, topics such as:

  • Usability in healthcare interfaces
  • Challenges of the design of user interfaces for healthcare systems
  • New solutions for graphical interfaces in healthcare
  • The importance of graphics to increase efficiency in healthcare
