International Workshop on Interactivity in Healthcare (IHS15)
http://interact.computing.dundee.ac.uk
Held in conjunction with the 15th IFIP TC.13 International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction - INTERACT 2015, Bamberg, Germany, 15th September 2015

--------
Motivation and Goals
--------
We are all living longer with average life expectancy increasing across the globe. However, chronic conditions coupled with an increasing global obesity problem still cause a huge strain on healthcare provision and quality of life for patients.

There are two approaches to reduce the burden on healthcare services – encouraging healthy lifestyles through increased knowledge, and improving people’s ability to affect the quality of care for those living with long-term conditions and age related illnesses. Although these issues appear to be separate, they have an effect on each other. We have now reached a critical point in healthcare - both healthcare professionals and patients alike recognize the potential for technology to provide them with personalized healthcare and support. Key goals in this field are to facilitate personalized health information to promote self-management, to identify and act upon support needs, to improve communication between patients and healthcare workers, to assist with the use of medicine and assistive technology and inform decision making between healthcare workers. Additionally, any health technology has to be designed to be usable, efficient, effective and accepted by the healthcare community. This workshop aims to promote discussion between multidisciplinary researchers on novel, innovative and connective approaches within eHealth, improving engagement and patient outcomes.

--------
Topics of interest
--------
This workshop is aimed at multidisciplinary researchers and healthcare professionals from all areas interested in novel approaches to interactivity in technology for healthy living, healthcare and eHealth. The areas of interest are, but not limited to:

- Usability of eHealth technologies
- Technologies to support health education, promotion and advice, and healthy independent living
- Personal health technologies or personalized assistance
- Social Care
- Novel approaches to health technologies
- Tailored decision support (for patients and practitioners)
- Mobile and wearable healthcare systems for eHealth
- Personalization in online support for health and wellbeing
-----------
Submissions
-----------
The workshop welcomes position papers (4 pages), and long papers (up to 10 pages in length). Accepted papers will be published in the official adjunct proceedings of the INTERACT conference, published by the University of Bamberg Press, including ISBN and will be distributed in both on- and offline archival formats. We welcome submissions from multidisciplinary perspectives, as well as PhD students or those new to the field.

For full details on the submission format and procedure, please refer to the Submission Instructions on http://interact.computing.dundee.ac.uk/. Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, and ability to promote discussion.
