Call for papers Conferences

Deadline extension: PervasiveHealth 2017

The 11th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare (PervasiveHealth 2017), will take place on 23-26 May, 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.

Pervasive Health Conference is a premier international forum with specific focus on technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing in healthcare and for wellbeing. The overall goal of the Pervasive Health Conference is to take a multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare Technology research and development.

The Pervasive Healthcare Community is addressing a broad scope of research topics and concerns: identify and understand problems from a technological, social, medical, and legal as well as financial perspective (with a particular emphasis on understanding and supporting patients’ and practitioners’ needs); design, implementation, and evaluation of supporting hardware and software infrastructures, algorithms, services and applications; and organizational strategies that facilitate integration of Pervasive Healthcare Technology into the healthcare enterprise.

We welcome contributions from the following fields:
  • Sensing/Actuating Technologies and Pervasive Computing
  • Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions
  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
  • Hardware and Software Infrastructures
We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:
  • Understanding Users
  • Applications
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  • Pervasive Healthcare Management

We are proud to welcome 2 great keynote speakers: Prof. Maja Pantic (Imperial College London, Computing Dept., UK) and Prof. Stephen Schueller (Northwestern University, USA).

PervasiveHealth 2017 is also proud to host 3 workshops:

  1. Challenges and Opportunities in Pervasive Health-enabled Telemedicine
  2. Leveraging Patient-Generated Data for Collaborative Decision Making in Healthcare
  3. Health-i-Coach: intelligent technologies for coaching in health

Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

The authors of the Accepted Papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work through one of the following EAI endorsed publications: EAI Endorsed Transactions on Pervasive Health and Technology.
