Call For Papers

The world's pressing healthcare needs may benefit from judicious application of networked information technology. Future networked information systems will support, for example, clinical workflow, remote diagnosis and consultation, e-prescribing, and mobile data collection and surveillance, disease outbreak identification and patient participation in their own well-being and care. Mobile-computing technology may be particularly helpful in improving access to healthcare (geography, monetary and informational), by encouraging personal health management, and by enabling patient and provider mobility. Wearable medical devices are emerging, to measure essential vital signs like pulse, respiration, ECG, blood glucose level, and patient mobility. Handheld devices support clinicians in urban hospitals, and portable diagnostic kits allow remote healthcare teams to more easily reach rural villages.

The widespread availability of mobile phones, and recent experiments with low-cost, long-range broadband wireless networks, bring connectivity to all these opportunities. We encourage papers that present novel ideas for networked computing technology in support of healthcare, and which are likely to invoke thoughtful discussion at the workshop.

Research papers should focus on all aspects of networked healthcare technologies. Of interest, though not exclusively, are the following topics: remote diagnosis and remote consultation

clinical applications of mobile or networked healthcare
mobile and wearable medical sensing applications
design of wearable and home-care health devices
sensor networks for public health monitoring and surveillance
networked mobile technology for rural healthcare
security and privacy in networked healthcare
experience from technology deployments
usability of mobile health applications and devices
applications to emergency response and disaster response
cost-efficient and energy-efficient networking for remote healthcare
remote access to electronic health records

The NetHealth workshop solicits paper submissions of up to 6 pages in length, including all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the workshop website. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Xplore and will include the final papers of up to 6 pages in length. All NetHealth technical papers must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers, one full registration is valid for up to three papers. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.

Each paper acceptance is subject to the conditions that the paper does not contain any plagiarized material and that the authors do not submit the paper material in parallel to another publication venue. Violations of these conditions will most likely result in rejections of the violating submissions or even already accepted papers.
