WORKSHOP TITLE: Healthy and Secure People

Healthy and Secure People” (HSP) is an inter-disciplinary research area, that will focus on five main key areas, which is focused on using scientific models, methodologies and technologies for enhancing human quality of life. In the next seven years 25% of EU citizens will be over the age of 60. An aging population opens a considerable sort of concerns, namely: understanding health, wellbeing and disease; preventing and diagnosing disease; treating and managing disease; active ageing and self-management of health; methods and knowledge; health care provision and integrated care.
Following a person-centred approach, it deals directly with individuals and groups of individuals. The main goal of this workshop is contribute to the development of new approaches and enabling technologies that will enhance human quality of life, leading to healthier, innovation and secure societies.

• Health care information systems interoperability, security and efficiency
• Ambient intelligence for wellbeing and e-health applications, supported by RFID technology and Wireless Sensor Networks
• Robotic systems and devices for health care and medicine
• Human factors, efficient cost control and management in society
• Intelligent decision support and data systems in health care, medicine and society
• Pervasive HealthCare
• Artificial Intelligence systems
• Business Intelligence Solutions
• People Security in the Society
• Mobile applications and ubiquitous devices
• Technologies to promote a healthy and secure society
• eGovernment solutions to the citizen
• Innovation in people supporting activities (e.g. health care, schooling and services)

Submissions can be one of the following types: full papers, short papers, poster papers and industry papers.

A full paper corresponds to a completed or finished research work, including the discussion of research results. A full paper should have between six and eight pages, considering the template and the guidelines provided.

A short paper introduces preliminary results of ongoing research. A short paper should be between four to six pages in length, considering the template and the guidelines provided.

A poster paper introduces initial research, ideas, and models at a discussion phase. A poster paper should be three pages in length.

An industry paper presents practical approaches to research, applications, tools, solutions, etc., aligned with the conference scope and topics. Page length can vary between four and six pages.

You can download all paper templates from the conference website, accessing the top menu option “SubmissionsSubmission guidelines”.

All papers must be written in English and only original contributions will be accepted. Papers must not have been published before, and not be under review for any other conference or publication.

Your paper must strictly respect the conference guidelines and the corresponding template (according to the submission type). We strongly recommend you to use the available templates as a basis for the edition of your paper.

Submissions will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis, so authors’ names and affiliations should not be included in the initial submission. This information should only be included in the final camera-ready version of accepted papers.

Based on the review results, a paper can be accepted for the type of the original submission (full paper, short paper, poster paper or industry paper), or for a different type. This means that, for instance, full papers can be accepted as short papers or poster papers only, and that short papers can be accepted as poster papers. Authors will be required to adjust the paper length according to the type of acceptance.

All papers accepted as full or short papers will be published in the conference proceedings to be published by Elsevier as a Procedia Computer Science volume (which is indexed by Scopus and ISI Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index) and will be available on Sciverse ScienceDirect. Poster papers and industry papers will be published in a conference book of abstracts, industry and poster papers (with ISBN).

Authors of selected papers will be invited to extend the paper for publication in international journals and in edited books. For more detailed information, please visit the conference website.

Authors of accepted full, short and industry papers will see their paper included in the conference program and scheduled for presentation and discussion.

Authors of accepted poster papers must also prepare and print a poster to be exhibited during the conference, following the template available at the conference website. Posters are presented and orally discussed during a poster session.

Please use the conference management system (OpenConf) available from the website to submit your workshop paper. To do this accordingly, please follow the steps below:

1. Just click on “Submit a paper” at one of the shortcut links available on the conference website;
