Third International Workshop on Smart Healthcare Applications

Workshop at OZCHI 2011
November 29, 2011
Canberra, Australia



Submission Deadline: 		September 25, 2011

Notification of Acceptance: 	October 5, 2011

Camera-Ready Papers: 		October 14, 2011

Workshop: 					November 29, 2011



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

    * Accessibility and Usability
    * User Diversity
    * Ethical and Normative Requirements
    * Gender Specific Healthcare Design
    * Economical, Legal, and Environmental Constraints
    * Technology Acceptance and Performance
    * Social and Societal Implications of E-Health Applications
    * Legal Issues in E-Health Applications
    * Privacy, Security, and Trust in E-Health Applications
    * Cultural Aspects of E-Health Systems

Technology and Systems

    * Technologies and Devices for Smart Healthcare Systems
    * Medical Devices and Sensors Infrastructures
    * Wireless Communication and Sensor Networks
    * Collaborative and Distributed Healthcare Systems
    * Handheld Devices and Mobile Computing in E-Health Systems
    * Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing in Healthcare
    * Ambient Assisted Living Environments



Interested researchers are invited to submit a position paper (2-4  
pages) formatted according to the OzCHI format via the workshop  
submission website until September 25, 2011. The papers should focus  
on current research activities and/or interesting aspects of future  
work. Industry practitioners are invited to submit a case study paper  
(1-2 pages) reporting on practical aspects of smart healthcare  
solutions. Authors of accepted workshop papers will be notified until  
October 5, 2011.
