Call For Papers

Scope - Healthy living and access to appropriate healthcare have become major concerns and behavioral drivers for people in today’s societies. This is also reflected in the economy, as an average middle class family in the U.S. spends on average 22% of their income on healthcare. This impact is further emphasized as population aging has become a significant issue in developed countries, heaving a negative effect on the relative supply of healthcare providers and thus further increasing cost. Information technology has the potential to help disrupt the resulting cost spiral and reduce the financial and societal burden that healthcare can pose. With today’s relative free flow of information, people have access to more relevant information and thus can afford to make better health decisions. Pervasive technologies can not only help provide, manage, and analyze passive health information but can be used to monitor health parameters in persons and thus provide more tailored information. Such monitoring could also provide value added information when visiting healthcare professionals. In the context of the workshop we use the term “pervasive health” as the superset of soft- and hardware technologies that can help people manage their health in a pervasive manner.

The PerHealth Workshop focuses on pervasive information and medical-device technologies that can aid people in managing their own health. We will provide a forum where hardware, software, and middleware technologies are discussed that relate to aging in place, geriatrics, chronic disease management, health management, or that could help people with disabilities.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Wearable and implantable sensors for pervasive healthcare
Communications in pervasive healthcare
Service and device discovery for pervasive healthcare
Data fusion and context elaboration in pervasive healthcare
Privacy and security issues in pervasive healthcare
Middleware for pervasive healthcare
Energy Efficiency in pervasive health monitoring
Artificial intelligence and expert systems for pervasive health
User interface, usability and acceptability of pervasive healthcare systems
Home monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
Pervasive healthcare applications for clinicians
Business models of pervasive health delivery
Pervasive healthcare Standards and frameworks
Integration of ambient intelligence with healthcare
Learning, and prediction of living activities and patterns
Smart environments for healthy living and/or aging in place
Social impact of pervasive technologies

Policies - Submitted papers must be original contributions that are unpublished and are not currently under consideration for publication by other venues. Submissions are limited to a maximum length of 6 pages and must adhere to IEEE format (2 column, 10 pt font). Templates are available on the "Submission Instructions" page. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE PerCom Workshop Proceedings (indexed by IEEE Xplore). Note, that each accepted paper requires a full PERCOM registration (there is no registration available for workshops only)!
