Theme I: Mobile Platforms for Healthcare

* Wearable and implantable wireless sensors for healthcare
* Energy efficiency in wireless health monitoring
* Usability, user-friendliness and reusability
* Disposable and cost-effective electronics
* Testbed and validation

Theme II: Network Systems for Healthcare

* Communications infrastructure for mobile healthcare apps
* Pervasive wireless communications in healthcare
* Protocols for wireless healthcare
* Wireless monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
* Service and device discovery

Theme III: Apps and Analytics for Mobile Healthcare

* Scalability, performance and reliability of mobile healthcare apps
* Data fusion, data mining and context elaboration
* Diagnostic and decision support algorithms
* Standards for mobile healthcare

Paper Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must not be published or under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. Authors should clearly identify how their considered topics relate to issues on wireless healthcare networking systems. Proposals describing an overall working system are particularly of interest.
