  • The Doctoral Consortium of the gDigiHealth.KEE conference has been established to become a regular annual forum for candidate Ph.D. students and researchers who are about or in their early stages of planning or undertaking their Ph.D. research journey in digital health. Ph.D. research proposals are encouraged to submit in the areas of the conference 'CALL FOR PAPERS’ Section, but are not necessarily limited to these, as long as they fit the focus of digital health research. Submitted Ph.D. research proposals will be reviewed by experienced professors and faculty members who have been engaged in Ph.D. research supervision for many years. Accepted Ph.D. research proposals will be invited to present their research proposals to receive feedback during the conference run from different stakeholders involved in digital health research and are attending the conference. This is anticipated to provide a great and distinctive opportunity for such candidate Ph.D. research students to meet and discuss their research ideas, methods, plans, etc., with researchers with different levels of expertise in related disciplines. Accepted Ph.D. research proposals will be published as extended abstracts in the gDigiHealth conference proceedings.

    During the gDigiHealth conference, the Doctoral Consortium will run in two sessions. In the first session, candidate Ph.D. research students will showcase their accepted research proposals in public. Then, in the second session, they will have the opportunity to receive feedback from the designated Ph.D. consortium committee, meet key researchers interested in their research in digital health, engage with other Ph.D. researchers, and develop networking in their designated areas of research interests.

    Each submission will be reviewed by at least two senior research academics in the designated field of the submitted Ph.D. research proposal. Accepted proposals will be required to join the gDigiHealth Doctoral Consortium and pay the registration fees of the gDigiHealth.KEE  2024 main conference, but only paying student registration fees.

    Call for Submission

  • The organizing committee of the gDigiHealth.KEE  2024 conference cordially invites workshop and tutorial proposals in relation to critical research areas in digital health not explicitly mentioned in the conference call for research papers. Prospective workshops/tutorials organizers should write fit-for-purpose proposals and submit to the conference organizers via the email: info@ga4dh.org, which will be directed to the gDigiHealth.KEE  2024 Conference Workshop Chairs for review. Please follow the following structure when you prepare your proposals:

    * Title of the workshop/tutorial (Full name and abbreviation).

    * Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference.

    * Short bio of the key organizers and their experience running workshops/tutorials.

    * A tentative list of workshop/tutorial program committee members.

    * The expected length of the workshop (3-hours, half-day or full-day)

    Prospective workshops/tutorials should avoid significant topic overlap with main conference research papers tracks. Approved workshops/tutorials proposals should strictly follow the gDigiHealth.KEE conference published Key Dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates for workshops. Workshops papers’ submission deadline can be later than the main conference research papers’ submission, with sufficient time, for example 4-6 weeks or more, for generating high-quality peer reviews.
