Call For Papers



The 2011 Pervasive Healthcare conference aims to gather technology experts, practitioners, industry and international authorities contributing towards the assessment, development and deployment of pervasive medical based technologies, standards and procedures. The theme of this year is: Coping with the Challenges and Opportunities within Pervasive E-Healthcare (COPE), with a special focus on pervasive healthcare management and its ability to deliver timely, quality based information to medical practitioners in providing high levels of patient care.


Pervasive Health 2011 seeks novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

Pervasive Healthcare Management

* Challenges surrounding data quality
* Standards and interoperability in pervasive healthcare
* Business cases and cost issues
* Security and privacy issues
* Training of healthcare professional for pervasive healthcare
* Legal and regulatory issues
* Insurance payments and cost aspects
* Staffing and resource management

Understanding Users

* User requirements
* Identifying and addressing stakeholder conflicts: patient needs, caregiver needs, health professional needs, organisational needs
* Usability and acceptability
* Barriers to adoption, and enablers
* Social implications of pervasive health technology, and social inclusion
* Coverage and delivery of pervasive healthcare services
* Patient empowerment
* Diversity: population and condition-specific requirements
* Inclusive research and design: engaging under-represented populations

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning

* Physiological models for interpreting medical sensor data
* Activity recognition
* Fall detection
* User modelling and personalization
* Modelling of Pervasive Healthcare environments Technology
* Sensor-based decision support systems
* Design and evaluation of patient and ambient-related sensors
* Wearable and implantable sensor integration
* Data fusion in pervasive healthcare environments
* Data mining medical patient records
* Software architectures e.g. Agent, SOA, distributed middlewares
* Electronic Health Records (EHR)


* Autonomous systems to support independent living
* Clinical applications, validation and evaluation studies
* Telemedicine
* Chronic disease and health risk management applications
* Health promotion and disease prevention
* Home based health and wellness measurement and monitoring
* Continuous vs. event-driven monitoring of patients
* Smart homes and hospitals
* Using mobile devices in the storage, update, and transmission of patient data
* Wellbeing and lifestyle support
* Systems to support individuals with auditory, cognitive, or vision impairements
* Systems to support caregivers


All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library (to be confirmed).
