Second International Workshop on
User-Centered Design of Pervasive Healthcare Applications

co-located with PervasiveHealth'11
5th International ICST  Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies  
for Healthcare
Dublin, Ireland
March 23-26, 2011



Submission Deadline:  		February 25, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: 	March 25, 2011
Camera-Ready Manuscripts: 	April 25, 2011
Workshop:					May 23, 2011



Users of pervasive healthcare systems will be increasingly  
characterized by diversity. Relying only on highly experienced and  
technology-prone user groups, which might have been typical users in  
the last decades, is not sufficient anymore. Instead, elderly users or  
users with a completely different domain knowledge, will have to use  
the systems. While current research focuses mainly on technological  
and/or medical aspects, there is a major need to understand in which  
way physical, emotional and cognitive abilities, caused by individual  
learning histories and health states, may impact the usage and  
acceptance of these systems. Hence, not only aspects of technical  
feasibility, but also acceptance and usability issues of pervasive  
healthcare applications have to be carefully considered in order to  
fully exploit the potential of future healthcare applications. This  
requires an integrative and multidisciplinary approach, which combines  
engineering and medical knowledge with theoretical and methodological  
contributions of the humanities.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers from different  
disciplines to discuss the interrelation of medical, environmental,  
technical, psychological and social factors and their consequences for  
the design, use and acceptance of pervasive healthcare systems.

	• Usability of Pervasive Healthcare Systems

	• Interaction Design
	• Multidisciplinary or Interdisciplinary Design
	• 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 Pervasive Healthcare  

End User Aspects

	• Accessibility and Usability
	• User Diversity
	• Ethical and Normative Requirements
	• Gender Specific Healthcare Design
	• Technology Acceptance and Performance
	• Social and Societal Implications of Pervasive Healthcare Systems
	• Legal Issues in Pervasive Healthcare Systems
	• Privacy, Security, and Trust in Pervasive Healthcare Systems
	• Cultural Aspects of Pervasive Healthcare Systems



Interested researchers are invited to submit a workshop paper (4-6  
pages) formatted according to the IEEE format until February 25, 2011.  
Please visit the main conference website ( for  
detailed submission requirements and procedures. 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  
March 25, 2011. The workshop will be held at PervasiveHealth'11, May  
23, 2011 in Dublin, Ireland. All accepted workshop papers will be  
published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
