Special Track: Sharing Knowledge and Expertise

Call for papers Special Track:  Sharing Knowledge and Expertise in  

Healthcare staff are notable in the amount of interaction and mobility  
exhibited in their work,
which often involves synchronous (or asynchronous), coupled,  
communication and activity, and is
sometimes conducted among a distributed team. As well as providing  
novel approaches to support
traditional methods of communication, a range of technologies offer  
the potential for individuals
and groups to reconfigure their collaboration practices in new and  
useful ways.

This special track invites reports on significant unpublished work in  
the area of computer-
support for co-operative work in healthcare with particular emphasis  
on design and technology
applications for interaction among medical specialists.  Research on  
support for collaboration
among medical, nursing, scientific and ancillary staff is encouraged,  
including case studies or
incident reports. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Ward rounds    		Shift handover   	Meeting support
Mobile work    		Team working     	Consultations
Visual communication environments 		Remote collaboration
Intense collaborative environments 		Shared displays
Collaborative writing /  note-taking	Teaching / Learning
Computer support for co-operative healthcare work

Special Track title
"ST: Sharing Knowledge and Expertise" when submitting a paper to this  

No hardcopy submissions will be accepted. Electronic submission of  
original research papers will
only be accepted in PDF format, observing the IEEE guidelines and  
formatting instructions for
full papers.

Authors should refer to the general webpage of CBMS 2009 for  
submission guidelines .  The format of IEEE CBMS 2009
