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 4th year of the International Workshop on Intelligent Environments Supporting Healthcare and Well-Being (WISHWell 2012). 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: Prof. Jesus Favela (México). Jesús Favela is a Professor of Computer Science at CICESE, Mexico, where he leads the Mobile and Ubiquitous Healthcare Laboratory. His research interests include Ubiquitous Computing, Human-Computer Interaction and Medical Informatics. Much of his research efforts have focused on the design and evaluation of ambient computing environments for healthcare, mostly to assist the demanding conditions of hospital work and to support older adults and their caregivers. Dr. Favela holds a BSc from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico (UNAM) and MSc and PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and former President of the Mexican Computer Science Society.
