HELINA 2023 seeks to provide a platform for formal research results, use cases, knowledge, and practices to be shared among peers in the region. The organizers of HELINA 2023 thus welcome original presentations in the following categories:
Papers may be submitted in English or French and should not have been submitted to other conferences or journals. Submissions exceeding the maximum page length specified above will be rejected immediately without review. All papers will be subject to a double blind peer-reviewed evaluation and accepted full research papers will be published in a special edition of the Journal of Health Informatics in Africa (http://www.jhia-online.org). Accepted work in progress papers, case studies, and experience papers will be electronically published in the conference proceedings with ISBN number on the HELINA website. For a paper to be published, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and present the accepted paper.
Paper submission deadline: Extended to 29 May 2023
Paper acceptance notification: 7 August 2023
Papers ready for publication deadline: 4 September 2023
The JHIA online paper submission system must be used. The paper submission template found on the website (https://www.jhia-online.org/index.php/jhia/submissionguide2), provides detailed instructions for authors aligned with the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals (https://www.icmje.org/recommendations/). When making a submission, please take note of the following important points:
Failure to adhere to the above instructions will result in papers not being reviewed for the HELINA conference.
