*Please find below the 2nd Call for Papers for the 3rd International
Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare 2009
(apologies fro cross-posting)*

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.


We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not
limited to:


Pervasive Health will accept submissions in the following categories:

*1 Full papers (6-8 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 (3-4 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 (2 pages submissions) - *For the first time, Pervasive Health
Conference proposes a demo track that will showcase the latest developments
and prototypes related to the topics of interest of the conference. The
expected demo submissions should describe the demo from both, the technical
side and its contribution to healthcare aspects.

*4 Position Papers (2 pages submissions) - *Position papers are envisioned
to provide insight into the lessons learnt from current (industrial,
practitioners, government, etc.) pervasive healthcare practice. The position
papers track is envisioned to provide the view of practitioners to the
pervasive health community in order to have a more clear understanding about
the real needs of healthcare operators and in this way shorten the gap
between technologists and the every-day needs of practitioners.

*5 Workshops (2 pages submissions)* Several workshops will be run in
conjunction with the conference. The purpose of these workshops is to
discuss work in progress and explore opportunities for new research related
to pervasive healthcare. Proposals for workshops should be submitted
directly to the workshops co-chairs..

All accepted submissions will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
