ACM 6th International Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Healthcare (MobileHealth)

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Paderborn, Germany

Organized in conjunction with

ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing (MobiHoc)


After the five successful editions of MobileHealth in conjunction with ACM MobiHoc, since 2011 in Paris (France), the 6th edition of MobileHealth will be held in in Paderborn (Germany) in conjunction with the 17th ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking & Computing (MobiHoc'16).

MobileHealth is a workshop which provides a forum for the presentation of research and development covering aspects of mobile health monitoring, diagnostics and analytics that are essential to improve safety and efficiency in health care. The goal of the workshop is to bring together medical device specialists, including researchers, developers, and caregivers, from clinical environments, industry, research laboratories, academia, and government to identify and address challenges facing the design, manufacture, certification, and use of mobile devices and data for health care.

MobileHealth 2016 will include presentations of experimental and theoretical achievements, innovative systems, prototyping efforts, case studies, and advances in technology related to wireless healthcare networking and systems. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Theme 1: Mobile architectures, platforms and networks for healthcare

- Wearable and implantable hardware and computing

- Body area networks

- Energy efficiency

- Wireless protocols

- Sensors

- Pervasive mobile platforms

Theme 2: Data mining and analytics for mobile healthcare

- Big data

- Social networks

- Privacy protection and data security

- Data fusion

- Machine learning

- Control and spread of epedemics

Theme 3: HCI for mobile healthcare apps

- Wearable device interaction

- Device management

- Commissioning

- User experience

- Gamification and engagement

- Accessibility


Submitted papers must not be published or under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. Authors should clearly identify how their considered topics relate to issues on wireless healthcare networking systems. Papers describing an overall working system are particularly of interest. All submissions will be handled electronically and must be in the ACM format and submitted as a PDF. Paper submissions for regular papers must be limited to 6 pages (US letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures, and references. The font size must be at least 10 points. Papers should be formatted according to the LaTex class file or the Word document template. Submissions should be made through EDAS. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
