PSH 2010 - Pervasive Systems for Healthcare

Invited Session of the 3nd KES International Symposium on Intelligent
Interactive Multimedia Systems and Services (KES-IIMSS 2010)

July 28-30, 2010
Baltimore, USA


Paper submission (session IS03 - Pervasive Systems for Healthcare):


Paper Submission deadline: March 22nd, 2010

Notification of acceptance: April 5th, 2010

Camera-ready copies due: April 19th, 2010


Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag, as book chapters in a
volume of their Engineering Series and indexed in ISI conference
publications, EI, INSPEC, etc.

Authors of outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of
their papers for a Special Edition of the Journal of Multimedia Tools and
Applications, published by Springer-Verlag. 


Pervasive healthcare systems are more and more characterized by the
heterogeneity of devices and users. Such systems exploit various
technologies such as ever-smaller mobile devices, location and tracking
tools, as well as wearable, portable, and implantable medical sensors.
Designing systems for effectively taking advantage of the potential of such
a variety of devices is a challenge to providing reliable solutions to real
problems. Furthermore, pervasive systems are increasingly characterized by
the heterogeneity of their users, too. In the healthcare domain, typical
users may be either patients of every age or practitioners such as doctors,
technicians and nurses. Accordingly, pervasive systems for healthcare are
intended not anymore just for experienced and technology-prone users, but
also for users with a different domain knowledge and so with different
skills and desiderata. According to this vision, a key role of pervasive
systems in the healthcare domain is to grant access to medical anywhere /
anytime and in a reliable way, but also to simplify the way these data can
accessed, explored and edited, so to increase their acceptance from both
patients and practitioners.

The special session at KES-IIMSS 2010 aims to bring together top researchers
both from academia and industry to stimulate research and create
interdisciplinary collaboration links allowing the exploration of new
frontiers in the area of Pervasive System. In details this session provides
a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the
interrelation of medical, environmental, technical and social factors and
their consequences for the design, use and acceptance of pervasive
healthcare systems. The session aims at giving participants a broad and deep
understanding of the multitude of issues involved in the design,
implementation and evaluation of pervasive systems and services.

Papers must be formatted according to the Springer instructions available at

Instructions are provided for preparing the document using MS Word and LaTeX
- you may use either method.
Papers should not exceed 10 pages in Springer format. Papers longer than
this will be subject to an additional charge.
Shorter papers will be acceptable if they adequately convey the material to
be described, and are not so short as to be trivial or lacking in depth.

Papers (deadline March 22nd, 2010) must be uploaded onto the PROSE online
submission and review system available at
(session name IS03)

Papers must be uploaded as a PDF document for review. If accepted, a full
set of publication files in MS Word or LaTeX must be provided.
Accepted papers must be presented at the symposium.
