Call For Papers

Pervasive Health Conference will be held in Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City, May 21 - 24, 2018.

The overall goal of the Pervasive Health Conference is to take a multidisciplinary
approach to Pervasive Healthcare Technology research and development.

The Pervasive Healthcare Conference aims to gather technology experts, practitioners,
industry and international authorities contributing towards the assessment, development
and deployment of pervasive medical based technologies, standards and procedures.

We welcome contributions from the following fields:

-Sensing/Actuating Technologies and Pervasive Computing
-Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions
-Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
-Hardware and Software Infrastructures

We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

Understanding Users
-Identifying and addressing stakeholder needs
-Usability and acceptability
-Barriers and enablers to adoption
-Social implications of pervasive health technology, and social inclusion
-Coverage and delivery of pervasive healthcare services
-Patient and caregiver empowerment
-Diversity: population and condition-specific requirements
-Inclusive research and design: engaging underrepresented populations
-Digital interventions and health behavior change

-Autonomous systems to support independent living
-Clinical applications, validation and evaluation studies
-Telemedicine and mHealth solutions
-Chronic disease and health risk management applications
-Health/Wellbeing promotion and disease prevention
-Home based health and wellness measurement and monitoring
-Continuous vs event-driven monitoring of patients
-Smart homes and hospitals
-Using mobile devices in the storage, update, and transmission of patient data
-Wellbeing and lifestyle support
-Systems to support individuals with auditory, cognitive, or vision impairments
-Systems to support caregivers

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning

Full Paper Submission Deadline: January 26, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: March 16, 2018
Camera Ready Deadline: March 30, 2017
Conference Dates: May 21 - 24, 2018


Paper submission:

Pervasive Health 2018 will accept submissions in the following categories:
• Full and short papers (up to 10 and 4 pages respectively including references)
• Posters and Demos (up to 4 pages, shorter submissions are encouraged)
• Workshop proposals (2 pages)
• Doctoral Colloquium (4 pages)

Full papers should describe novel and mature work, and are limited to 10 pages including
references. Short papers should describe more focused and succinct, but mature work.
Pervasive Health will not accept papers that are currently under review, published or
accepted in another venue. All submissions must be anonymized. No identifying information
on Authors or their affiliation should appear on the paper (except for neutral references
to their own work).

Papers should be submitted through Easychair system and have to comply with the ACM format

Please check the submission page for all submission details and templates:


Reviewing Process and Publication
Each paper will be blind, peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive Health 2018 program
committee with additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research domains.
Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution
to the field, technical correctness and presentation. The paper should make explicit how
the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been
published or submitted. Authors will be invited to submit their camera-ready papers in
ACM format, to be published in ACM Digital Library. Proceedings are also submitted for
inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI
Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as EAI's own
EU Digital Library (EUDL). In the previous years, the acceptance rate of the Pervasive
Health Conference was below 30%, 24% in 2017.
