Call for Workshops

7th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare
Venice, Italy, May 5-8 2013 (the week after CHI in Paris)

Workshops proposal deadline: 16 November 2012

This is a reminder that Workshop proposals for PervasiveHealth 2013 need to be submitted by Nov 16, 2012.
You still have 10 days to finalize your submissions.


The goal of the PervasiveHealth conference is to address a set of related technologies and concepts that help integrate healthcare more seamlessly into everyday life, regardless of space and time. To achieve this, it is necessary to take a multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare Technology research and development. 


The Pervasive Health 2013 Workshop Organizing Committee invites proposals for the workshop program.
Workshops provide a forum for people to discuss areas of special interest within pervasive computing related to health-specific applications. Workshops afford the participants the opportunity to examine an area with a selected focus in an open environment for the free exchange of views.
