Call for Participation
*** HealthTech '15 ***
2015 USENIX Summit on Information Technologies for Health
August 10, 2015

Co-located with the 24th USENIX Security Symposium (USENIX Security '15) 
(Sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association)
Flyer: https://www.usenix.org/sites/default/files/healthtech15_cfp.pdf

Advances in healthcare technology show great potential to improve the
delivery and stem the rising costs of healthcare. However, the rapid
development and hasty adoption of new technologies, combined with a
complicated regulatory environment, has resulted in a landscape
replete with interoperability, safety, and security problems.

HealthTech, formerly HealthSec, is now in its third year with a
broader scope designed to encourage the development of new
technologies that generally improve the quality and safety of
healthcare as well as the access to it. By bringing together
researchers, practitioners, and industrial partners, HealthTech aims
to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary interactions among the
technology, medicine, and policy communities.

The format of HealthTech Summit has evolved as the organizers seek to
serve the healthcare IT technical community. This year, rather than
soliciting paper submissions, the program committee has put together
a series of invited talks and panels, leveraging the advantages of the
Washington, D.C. venue to bring in stakeholders from government as
well as industry and academia.

HealthTech will also feature a poster session as a way for researchers
and practitioners to share recent advances at the intersection of
healthcare and technology. 

This year's summit will feature four panels on the following topics:

Human Factors
Device Security
Data Privacy
Legal and Policy Issues
