> 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 a variety of pressures on healthcare  
> systems, 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.
>
> Pervasive healthcare may be defined from two perspectives. First, it  
> is the development and application of pervasive computing (or  
> ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence) technologies for  
> healthcare, health and wellness management. Second, it seeks to make  
> healthcare available to anyone, anytime, and anywhere by removing  
> locational, time and other restraints while increasing both the  
> coverage and quality of healthcare.
>
> The Pervasive Healthcare conference aims to gather together  
> technology experts, practitioners, industry and national authorities  
> contributing towards the development and application of human- 
> centered pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for  
> healthcare and wellness.

> 		*** TYPE OF SUBMISSIONS ***
>
> Pervasive Health will accept submissions in the following categories:
>
> 1 Full papers (up to 8 pages submissions) - Full papers are  
> submissions describing results and original research work not  
> submitted or published elsewhere in one of the four main categories  
> listed below. Full papers should properly place the work within the  
> field, cite related work, and clearly indicate the innovative  
> aspects of the work and its contribution to the field.
>
> 2 Posters (up to 4 pages submissions) - Authors are invited to  
> submit work in progress whose preliminary results are already  
> interesting to Pervasive Health audience. The poster track will give  
> Pervasive Health attendees a way to learn about ongoing research  
> initiatives and will provide presenters with an excellent  
> opportunity to receive invaluable direct feedback from experts.
>
> 3 Demos and Videos (2 pages submissions) - For the first time,  
> Pervasive Health Conference proposes a demos and videos track that  
> will showcase the latest developments and prototypes related to the  
> topics of interest of the conference. The expected submissions  
> should describe the demo from both, the technical side and its  
> contribution to healthcare aspects
>
> 4 Workshop Proposals
> A separate Call for Workshops will be issued in due course. Please  
> check conference website (http://www.pervasivehealth.org).
>
>
>
> All accepted submissions will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital  
> Library.
