Dear colleagues:

we are excited to invite you to the International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare (Pervasive Health) 2013 that will take place in beautiful Venice (Italy) on May 5-8 2013.

The program committee and the organization committee worked hard to ensure a high quality scientific program and two spectacular keynote speakers.
PervasiveHealth will feature 24 full papers presentations, 20 short papers presentations, a range of exciting demos and posters, and a doctoral colloquium. 

We are happy to share the technical program with you and we look forward to see you in Venice in a few weeks.
