Call For Papers

=========================== Call for Papers ==============================
International Workshop on Mobile Health Services (IW-MOHES) 2016
Co-located with International Conference on Smart Homes and Health Telematics (ICOST) 2016
Wuhan, China, May 25-27, 2016
Paper Submission Deadline: February 15, 2016

This workshop has a unique aim to address challenging issues in the domain of Mobile Health Services. We hereby invite researchers working in this domain and interested in participating in this special workshop to submit papers through the ICOST 2016 submission system. We will select several high-quality transactions-style papers from this workshop for direct, fast-track publication with IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC), whereas only a one-page abstract of each selected workshop paper will appear in the 2016 ICOST proceedings. Interested authors please consult with the scope statement of IEEE TSC. For selected papers that will be directly published with IEEE TSC, authors will be asked to confirm their acceptance of such an arrangement, and the papers will need to be converted into IEEE TSC style.

The IW-MOHES will be conducted through intensive discussions led by the lead author(s) of an anchoring paper in each session, together with other related papers. Members of the workshop organizing committee will take turn to be the scribe of each workshop session. The discussion contents and outcomes of IW-MOHES will be captured and edited after the conference, and a summary will be thus developed as the foundation paper for future development of this community.


Topics will include mobile health services related to (but are not limited to):
• Integrity, security, and privacy of health data
• Health telematics & Informatics
• Smart homes and mobile health services
• Advanced biomedical sensors
• Unencumbered, RF-based sensing of vitals, activities and behavior
• Novel mobile health applications
• Mobile crowd-sensing based health services
• Cultural differences in health telematics
• Assistive technologies – physical impairments
• Assistive technologies – cognitive and social impairments
• Accessibility services
• ADL monitoring for safety and wellbeing
• Affective interfaces and robotic companions
• Patient persuasion and empowerment
• Assistive living spaces: novel concepts and design
• From point-of-care to continuum-of-care and just-in-time intervention
• Smart hospitals and emergency rooms
• Services for health behavior change
• Affective computing services for wellness


February 15, 2016 Deadline for Paper Submission
February 29, 2016 Notification of Acceptance
March 14, 2016 Camera-ready due
