+++ SmartHealth'09 +++

First International Workshop on Smart Healthcare Applications

One-day workshop at OZCHI 2009
November 23 - 27, 2009
Melbourne, Australia



Submission Deadline:  		September 10, 2009

Notification of Acceptance: 	September 25,  2009



Within the last years a variety of new healthcare concepts for  
supporting and assisting users in technology-enhanced environments  
emerged. While smart healthcare systems can help to minimize hospital  
stays and in so doing enable patients an independent life in a  
domestic environment, the complexity such systems raises fundamental  
questions of behavior, communication and technology acceptance.  
Therefore, this workshop aims to bring together researchers from  
different disciplines to discuss the interrelation of medical,  
environmental, technical, communicative, psychological and social  
factors and their consequences for the design, use and acceptance of  
smart healthcare systems.



Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:


    * Usability of Healthcare Information Systems
    * Usability of Mobile Computing in Healthcare
    * User Experience Design
    * Universal (or Disability) Access
    * Empirical Methods (Qualitative and Qualitative)
    * User and Cognitive Models
    * Participatory Design
    * Model-Based Design of E-Health Systems
    * Tools for Design, Modeling, and Evaluation

Concepts and Applications

    * Novel E-Health Concepts
    * Software Infrastructures and Architectures for Implementing E- 
Health Applications
    * Tools and Design Techniques for E-Health Systems
    * Interaction Design
    * Multidisciplinary or Interdisciplinary Design
    * Trade-off between Technical, Medical, and User Requirements
    * Aesthetic vs. Functional Design Aspects
    * Emotional and Hedonic Design

Human-Computer Interaction

    * Human Aspects of Future and Emerging Healthcare Technologies
    * Human-Computer Interaction in Healthcare
    * User-Centered or Human-Centered Design
    * Emotion and Affective User Interface
    * Adaptive and Tangible User Interfaces for E-Health Systems
    * Universal (or Disability) Access

Social and Ethical Aspects

Interested researchers are invited to submit a 2-page position paper  
formatted according to the OZCHI format to the workshop organizers ([log in to unmask] 
) until September 10, 2009. The papers should focus on current  
research activities and/or interesting aspects of future work. All  
position papers will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on their  
novelty, originality, and relevance to the workshop theme. Authors of  
accepted position papers will be notified until September 25, 2009.  
The workshop will be held at OZCHI 2009, November 23-27, 2009 in  
Melbourne, Australia.
