Call For Papers

Background and Goals:

The workshop will bring together researchers from both industry and academia
from the various disciplines to contribute to the 3rd year of the International
Workshop on Intelligent Environments Supporting Healthcare and Well-Being
(WISHWell 2011). Healthcare environments (within the hospital and the home) are
extremely complex and challenging to manage from an IT and IS perspective, as
they are required to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various
circumstances with a number of resource constraints. Pervasive healthcare
technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by integrating them
within existing healthcare services. It is essential that intelligent pervasive
healthcare solutions are developed and correctly integrated to assist health
care professionals in delivering high levels of patient care. It is equally
important that these pervasive solutions are used to empower patients and
relatives for self-care and management of their health to provide seamless
access for health care services.

Areas of interest: include, but are not limited to, the following:

+ Health monitoring from the home, office
+ Mobile health monitoring
+ Next generation telehealth/telecare
+ Systems to encourage healthy lifestyles
+ Ambient assisted living
+ Case Studies
+ Decision Support Systems (DSS)
+ Support for independent living
+ Support for rehabilitation
+ Environments supporting carers
+ Pervasive Technologies
+ Pervasive data management architectures

Guest Speaker: Dr. Achilles D. Kameas

Dr. Achilles D. Kameas received his Diploma in Computer Engineering and his PhD
in Human-Computer Interaction from the Department of Computer Engineering &
Informatics (CEID) at the University of Patras, Hellas, in 1989 and 1995,
His research interests also include Human Cognition and User modelling, Virtual
Reality and Artificial Intelligence, Authoring and Multimedia Systems, and
Intelligent Tutoring Systems. In recent years, he has contributed to a number of
publications in those fields, as a result of the ongoing research he
participates in. His research experience includes participation in several
national and EU research projects, such as GESEM (in the context of EU program
COMETT II) and AXE-10 (in the context of national program SYN). His tasks
include the analysis, design, integration, verification and validation of
project outcomes. He was a teaching assistant with CEID (1990-1995) and a part-
time professor with the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Patras and
Messolongi (1995). He is a Voting Member of ACM, SIGCHI and SIGCUE since 1992, a
member of IEEE and IEEE Computer Society since 1993, a member of the Society for
Machines and Mentality since 1993 and a member of the Technical Chamber of
Greece (TEE) since 1990.
