PervasiveHealth 2020 : (Virtual) 14th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare
Conference Series : Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare
Call For Papers
Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI ICMTEL 2020 will take place online in a live stream.
Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.
PervasiveHealth is a premier international forum with specific focus on technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing in healthcare and for wellbeing. The overall goal of the PervasiveHealth conference is to take a multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare Technology research and development. The Pervasive Healthcare Community is addressing a broad scope of research topics and concerns: identify and understand problems from a technological, social, medical, and legal as well as financial perspective (with a particular emphasis on understanding and supporting patients’ and practitioners’ needs); design, implementation, and evaluation of supporting hardware and software infrastructures, algorithms, services and applications; and organizational strategies that facilitate integration of Pervasive Healthcare Technology into the healthcare enterprise.
Traditional healthcare environments are extremely complex and challenging to manage, as they are required to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various circumstances with a number of resource constraints. Pervasive healthcare technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by successfully integrating them within existing healthcare environments. Technologies, standards and procedures on their own provide little and or no meaningful service. It is essential that pervasive healthcare environments, through a combined approach of data collection, data correlation and data presentation, assist healthcare professionals in delivering high levels of patient care, and empower individuals and their families for self-care and health management.
PervasiveHealth 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.
Pervasive Health 2020 invites Full-length Paper submissions, Posters proposals, Workshop Paper submissions, Workshop proposals and Doctoral Consortium submissions.
