Pervasive Healthcare constitutes one of the most promising and technically
challenging application domains for pervasive computing. It involves many
research areas, from wearable computing and ubiquitous connectivity to
context-awareness, sensor data fusion, artificial intelligence, expert
systems, medical analytics, databases and user-friendly interfaces. While
significant technological progress has been achieved in the past few years,
further work is needed to develop complete systems that can really improve
the patient quality of life and reduce medical errors and costs. First of
all, an efficient, reliable, and complete pervasive healthcare system must
satisfy both medical and patient requirements in terms of accuracy,
reliability, unobtrusiveness and user acceptance. To do this, a
multidisciplinary approach is necessary starting from the integration of new
wearable technologies in a single Body Area Network to the design and
development of system architectures and middleware solutions able to support
efficient and dependable services like continuous remote monitoring, patient
tracking, and ambient assistance. The IEEE PerHealth workshop will provide a
forum where researchers in the area of Pervasive Healthcare can discuss
current results in the field and possible hints for future work. Original
contributions are solicited related to all areas involved in the design of
pervasive healthcare systems.


Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Wearable and Implantable sensors for healthcare
- Pervasive communications in healthcare
- Service and device discovery
- Data fusion and context elaboration
- Privacy and security issues in healthcare
- Middleware for pervasive healthcare
- Energy Efficiency in health monitoring
- Artificial intelligence and expert systems
- User interface, usability and acceptability of pervasive healthcare
- Home monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
- Healthcare applications for clinicians
- Business Models of Pervasive Health Delivery
- Standards and frameworks


Papers should contain original material and not be previously published or
currently submitted elsewhere. Manuscripts must be limited to 6 pages
including text, figures, references and appendices, organized following the
IEEE 8.5x11 conference format, and formatted in accordance with the IEEE
Computer Society author guidelines. The link for the templates can be found
at: .

All submissions will be handled via EDAS. Accepted papers will be published
by the IEEE Computer Society Press in the PerCom 2010 Workshops Proceedings
and will appear on IEEE Xplore.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the
workshop to present the paper. There is no workshop-only registration.
An oral presentation at the workshop is strictly required. No-shows of
accepted papers at the workshop will result in those papers NOT being
included in the IEEE Digital Library.

Extended versions of selected papers with special merit will be considered
for a possible fast track publication on Pervasive and Mobile Computing
Journal (Elsevier).


Paper submission: Oct. 25, 2009
Author notification: Dec. 21, 2009
Camera-ready due: Jan. 29, 2010
