Call For Papers


MobileHealth 2011
The First ACM MobiHoc Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Healthcare

To be held in conjunction with MobiHoc 2011
May 16-20, 2011. Paris, France


Technical sponsorship: ACM SIGMOBILE


Scope of the workshop

Average age of the population tends to increase and the number of people requiring care intensive medical monitoring is not small. This increases overall cost of medical care. Therefore, partially replacing the assistance of nursing staff by small health surveillance and communication equipments like sensors, networks, monitoring software could be cost effective and would also increase life standard. Recent Advances in technology has led to the development of small, intelligent, wearable sensors capable of remotely performing critical health monitoring tasks and then transmitting patient's data back to health care centers over wireless medium. Such wireless health monitoring platforms aim to continuously monitor mobile patients needing permanent surveillance.

However, to set up such platforms several issues along the communication chain should be resolved. The acquisition of medical information via a set of wireless sensors embedded in the patient himself, the treatment and use of this information either by a local contractor equipment or offset after transfer in 3G and/or WiFi connection to a data server, the access to the collected data, ...etc. are some of the important challenges that we have to consider. Each level represents a fairly complex subsystem with a local hierarchy employed to ensure efficiency, portability, security, and reduced cost.

MobileHealth workshop aims to provide a forum for the interaction of these multiple areas and would be an important chance to discuss and understand what aspects have to be considered to provide effective pervasive wireless healthcare systems. The workshop will include presentations of theoretical and experimental achievements, innovative wireless systems, prototyping efforts, case studies and advances in technology related to wireless healthcare networking and systems.

This announcement solicits technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions should clearly identify how they relate to issues on wireless healthcare networking systems. Contributions describing an overall working system are particularly of interest.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Mobile devices for healthcare
- Wearable and Implantable Wireless sensors for healthcare
- Communications infrastructure for mobile healthcare apps
- Protocols for wireless healthcare
- Scalability, performance and reliability of mobile healthcare apps
- Pervasive Wireless communications in healthcare
- Service and device discovery
- Data fusion and context elaboration
- Wireless monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
- Energy Efficiency in Wireless health monitoring
- Pervasive Health Systems and Services
- Authentication and Sensors' monitoring
- Confidentiality and Data Security
- Mobile Interfaces for Data Visualization
- Realizations and Platforms
- Standards for mobile healthcare

Manuscript submissions

Submitted regular papers must be up to 10 pages (US letter size, 8.5 X 11 inches) and short papers up to 4 pages including text, figures and references. It should be in PDF format having a font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present future research directions, ongoing work, visionary, innovative ideas.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

Further submission instructions could be found on the workshop web site.
