Call for Participation
PervasiveHealth Conference 2008
Tampere, Finland, Jan. 30-Feb. 2, 2008

After the successful first year of the conference, the Organizing 
Committee is please to announce the Second International Conference on 
Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare.

Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline, focusing on the 
development and application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing 
technology for healthcare and wellness. Pervasive healthcare seeks to 
respond to pressures towards healthcare system, arising from a number of 
factors, including the increased incidence of life-style related and 
chronic diseases, emerging consumerism in healthcare, need for 
empowering patients and relatives for self-care and management of their 
health, and need to provide seamless access for health care services, 
independent of time and place.

This year the conference accepted a total of 58 papers out of 107 
submissions divided between full and short papers that will be presented 
in seven oral and two posters sessions. Additionally the conference will 
include one industrial panel, two keynote speakers and three workshops 
as follows:
