Call For Papers

Pervasive Health Conference is a premier international forum with specific focus on
technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing in healthcare
and for wellbeing. The overall goal of the Pervasive Health Conference is to take a
multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare Technology research and development.

We welcome contributions from the following fields:

• Sensing/Actuating Technologies and Pervasive Computing

• Hardware and Software Infrastructures

We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

Pervasive Healthcare Management
• Challenges surrounding data quality
• Standards and interoperability in pervasive healthcare
• Business cases and cost issues
• Security and privacy issues
• Training of healthcare professional for pervasive healthcare
• Legal and regulatory issues
• Staffing and resource management

Understanding Users
• Identifying and addressing stakeholder needs
• Usability and acceptability
• Barriers and enablers to adoption
• Social implications of pervasive health technology, and social inclusion
• Coverage and delivery of pervasive healthcare services
• Patient and caregiver empowerment
• Diversity: population and condition-specific requirements
• Inclusive research and design: engaging underrepresented populations
• Digital interventions and health behavior change

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
• Physiological models for interpreting medical sensor data
• Activity recognition and fall detection
• User modelling and personalization
• Modelling of Pervasive Healthcare environments
• Sensor-based decision support systems
• Design and evaluation of patient and ambient-related sensors
• Wearable and implantable sensor integration
• Data fusion in pervasive healthcare environments
• Data mining of medical patient records
• Software architectures
• Electronic Health Records

• Autonomous systems to support independent living
• Clinical applications, validation and evaluation studies
• Telemedicine and mHealth solutions
• Chronic disease and health risk management applications
• Health/Wellbeing promotion and disease prevention
• Home based health and wellness measurement and monitoring
• Continuous vs event-driven monitoring of patients
• Smart homes and hospitals
• Using mobile devices in the storage, update, and transmission of patient data

• Systems to support caregivers


- Full and Short Papers due on: January 17th, 2016
- Author Notification: February 29th, 2016
- Camera ready papers due: March 11, 2016


Paper submission:

Pervasive Health 2016 will accept submissions in the following categories:
• Full papers (up to 8 pages including references)
• Short Papers and Posters (up to 4 pages including references)
• Demos (2 pages)
• Workshop proposals (2 pages)
• Doctoral Colloquium (4 pages)

Full papers should describe novel and mature work, and are limited to 8 pages including
references. Short papers should describe more focused and succinct, but mature work.
Pervasive Health will not accept papers that are currently under review, published or
accepted in another venue. All submissions must be anonymised. No identifying information
on Authors or their affiliation should appear on the paper (except for neutral references
to their own work).

Papers should be submitted through EasyChair system

Please check the submission page for all submission details and templates:


Reviewing Process and Publication

Each paper will be blind, peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive Health 2016 program
committee with additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research domains.
Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution
to the field, technical correctness and presentation. The paper should make explicit how
the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been
published or submitted. Authors will be invited to submit their camera-ready papers in
ACM format, to be published in ACM Digital Library. Proceedings are also submitted for
inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI
Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own
EU Digital Library (EUDL). In the previous years, the acceptance rate of the Pervasive
Health Conference was around 30%.
