Call for Papers for
Springer Mobile Networks and Applications Special Issue on
“Wireless Technology for Pervasive Healthcare”

Since the start of this new century, the proportion of seniors has been
increasing more rapidly than other age groups while the newborn rate is
steadily decreasing. This global aging problem demands an increased focus
on preparing pervasive healthcare systems and applications deployed around
users and capable of remotely caring for them and improving their health
and well-being anywhere anytime. These systems and applications require a
sophisticated integration of microcircuit, medical sensing, and wireless
and mobile technologies. They largely benefit users by decreasing the
dependability on special caregivers and eventually reducing healthcare
expenses through a more efficient use of healthcare resources and an
earlier detection of life-threatening emergency situations. However, the
realization of pervasive healthcare sets some additional critical
requirements, e.g. realtimeness and fault-tolerance, and reliability,
security and efficiency challenges compared with traditional hospital-based
systems. Exploitation of Information and Communications Technologies as
well as Networking and Sensors Technologies will enable cost-effective and
efficient healthcare delivery, capable to deal with physical and logical
mobility of patients and devices.

The focus of this call is on theory and applications of Wireless
Technologies towards the definition of the Next Generation Pervasive
Healthcare. Original, unpublished contributions are solicited. Possible
topics of interest include, but are certainly not limited to the following:
* Wireless body area networks for remote healthcare monitoring
* Energy efficient sensing and communication for pervasive healthcare
* Reliable and fault-tolerant communications in pervasive healthcare
* Network protocols design and analysis for pervasive healthcare
* Data management and resource sharing for pervasive healthcare
* Mobile, social, context-aware computing for pervasive healthcare
* Integration of different wireless technologies for pervasive healthcare
* Remote diagnosis and patient management for pervasive healthcare
* Distributed multimedia services for pervasive healthcare
* Emergency detection and response for pervasive healthcare
* Trust, security, privacy, and QoS provisioning for pervasive healthcare
* System architectures, applications & prototypes for pervasive healthcare
