WISH is pleased to offer a mentoring program for students and other junior researchers joining the fields of HCI, health, wellness, and biomedical informatics.  This program will match up participants with members of the steering committee for one-on-one mentoring. Some preference will be given to authors of accepted papers for WISH, but the program is open to anyone. We strongly encourage applicants who are not presenting at WISH.


Interested students and junior researchers should submit one PDF document that contains:

  • A paragraph on why you would like to attend WISH 2012 and what you hope to gain by participating in the mentoring program
  • 3 steering committee members that you would be interested in meeting
  • Budget with your anticipated financial support needed
  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Letter of support from your supervisor or advisor (if advisors would like to include additional information, they can email it to noting the student’s name in the subject and email body).

Please submit your application to
