Wireless Health 2015, hosted this year at the National Institutes of Health, invites cutting edge wireless, connected and mobile health research from engineering, computer science, biomedical and health disciplines. The unique mission of the Wireless Health conference is to provide the highest‐quality academic, health and industrial research forum to develop an international community to accelerate the development and adoption of new wireless, mobile and connected technologies for improving health and lowering costs. Central to this mission is the creation of a nurturing research forum that creates an opportunity for trans-disciplinary and cross-sector collaboration. This unique meeting brings together members of the health and technology research communities, device manufacturers, health service providers, and federal policy makers. Wireless Health 2015 will offer an outstanding set of peer‐reviewed papers and abstracts, interactive workshops and tutorials, emerging application demonstrations, and world‐renowned keynote speakers.

Wireless Health encourages submission of studies of prototype development and pilot studies, clinical trials and/or field validations demonstrating the benefits of wireless, mobile and connected technology for diagnosing, treating or maintaining physical and mental health symptoms and conditions. Also encouraged is research on connected devices and systems designed for health promotion and disease prevention. Fundamental advances in power management, usability, human factors, signal processing, pattern recognition, database technologies and informatics, privacy and security related to wireless and mobile health are also encouraged. Finally, Wireless Health encourages submissions of research involving low cost, point of care diagnostic and treatment tools that improve health and/or increase the reach of healthcare globally, including developing countries and underserved regions.

There are two (2) paths to presenting your work at Wireless Health 2015:

1.Full papers (4-8 pages) can be submitted for either oral, poster or demo presentation (or all). Full papers will be published in ACM Conference proceedings. Full papers must be in the ACM conference format. Posters will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session.

2.Research abstracts (500 words) can be submitted for either oral, poster or demo presentation (or all). The authors of the accepted paper abstracts will be invited to submit a paper for review to the Journal of Translational Behavioral Medicine. Research abstracts must be in the WH2015 Abstract Submission Format. Posters will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session.

A trans-disciplinary panel will review all contributions. Submissions must contain original material that has neither been previously published nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.

There will be a (partial) travel grant through the US National Science Foundation for a number of students to attend the conference. The application selection process for the travel support will be independent of the paper review. Applications for travel grants will be posted on the Wireless Health 2015 website in late spring.

ALL submissions must be registered and submitted electronically. Submission instructions will be posted shortly.
