Call For Papers

Workshop Aims

The primary aim of the workshop is to investigate the use of technology such as wearable sensors, virtual reality, multimedia, brain computing and games to support monitoring, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients affected by mental diseases. The workshop will bring together researchers and mental health professionals to present and discuss the latest work, focusing on the role of ubiquitous computing technology, concepts, results and issues such as acceptance, experience, usability and accessibility. Workshop participants will be from a variety of backgrounds such as electrical engineering, computer science, pervasive computing, human computer interface design, psychology, psychiatry and interdisciplinary research fields. The main objective of the workshop will be to strengthen the cooperation within the growing community in pervasive healthcare research, allowing lively exchange of ideas and foster new collaborations. The main topics will cover the fields of multi-parametric unobtrusive monitoring of physiological signs and behavior, innovative algorithms for assessment of long-term physiological and behavioral data, decision support, activity and emotion recognition, bridging virtual and real experience, supporting mental wellness, hospital information systems, appropriate data formats and privacy, and validation of the overall effectiveness of ubiquitous technology in mental health.
