Call for papers

Research in multimedia and health is driven of the current technological advancements in sensors and personalised healthcare. In recent years we can observe many applications of health care and personal health that are addressed by core multimedia research questions, such as monitoring daily life activities, developing lifestyle and behavioral profiles, physiological and cognitive multimedia-based monitoring for health status assessment. Applications can be as specific as the recognition of food to assess its nutritional content, multimodal visualization and correlation of lifestyle parameters to assess conditions such as dementia, recommendation systems to help patients and healthcare providers with managing chronic diseases such as diabetes and asthma, or the development of personalized home assistants, used to help the elderly in their daily life, as society ages and the care ratio dwindles. A growing body of research indicates how core multimedia research is an important enabler for applications related to societal health domain.

This is an interdisciplinary workshop with multifaceted topics of interests. The intention of the workshop is to bring challenging healthcare application domains and multimedia research together.

Topics of interest

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

Fusing, interpretation and interactive visualization of health and wellness data.
Multimedia for the self-monitoring and self-management of personal health
Complex health monitoring from heterogeneous data streams
Eye-movements and mental commands for impaired persons
Brain computer interfaces and multimedia analysis.
Multimedia in health behavior change technology
Long term health monitoring beyond health behavior change
Multimedia in personal health records
Making sense of personal multimedia data for health
Multimedia activity monitoring of health related daily activities
Health related event detection in large data collections

Multimedia retrieval for personal big health data collections


All submissions must be original work not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. While the workshop will accept papers describing completed work as well as work-in- progress, the emphasis is on early discussion of novel ideas (potentially of a controversial nature) rather than detailed description and evaluation of incremental advances. The workshop accepts full papers (8 pages), short papers (4 pages) and demos (2-4 pages) in pdf. Reviews will be single-blind: author names and affiliations should be included. Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of the main conference ACM MM 2016.

Important Dates

Submission deadline July 11th, 2016
Notification of acceptance August 2, 2016
Camera-ready August 16, 2016
