The 4th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies
for Healthcare, Pervasive Health 2010, is soliciting proposals for workshops
to be held in conjunction with the conference. The workshops will take
place during the first day of the conference (March 22nd, 2010).

We invite workshop proposals that address innovative and important
topics related to the application of pervasive technologies in the field of
health care. The workshops should establish an informal forum for
participants to exchange developing research results and ideas.

Potential workshop proposers are requested to submit a 3-page workshop
proposal including a timely topic of interest to the Workshop Chairs
Lena Mamykina (mamykina [at] and Andreas Hein
(andreas.hein [at] Outcome of workshop proposals
will be announced on the 6nd of November 2009 by e-mail.

Each workshop should have one or more organizers and an international
program committee. The proposal should include:

- Title of the proposed workshop
- Abstract (less than 200 words)
- Names and full addresses, including contact details, of the workshop
chairs and Program Committee members
- Short description of the motivation and objectives as well as the
original and technical merit of the topic

Pervasive Health

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.
