DEADLINE - 2nd December 2013


Apologies for cross-posting!

PervasiveHealth 2014
PervasiveHealth is a premier international forum with specific focus on 
technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing 
in healthcare and well-being. The overall goal of the Pervasive Health 
Conference is to take a multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare 
Technology research and development.

Proposal Submission Process

All submissions should be emailed to the workshop chair no later than 
December 2nd, 2013. For pre-proposal submission inquiries contact the 
workshop co-chairs, We solicit workshops in all areas related to Pervasive 
Computing for Healthcare. In particular we would like to encourage 
workshops focused on new and emerging research directions, novel and 
highly innovative themes, real-world topics, system or interaction topics 
and interdisciplinary themes including but not limited to:

 - Frameworks and Standards for Pervasive e-Health
 - Design and Implementation of e-health Systems
 - Reliability evaluation of Pervasive e-Health systems
 - Wearable and Implantable Sensors for Pervasive e-Health
 - Smart Sensors Protocols for e-Health
 - Tele-Medicine & Tele-Healthcare Systems
 - System Architecture and Networking protocols for e-Health systems
 - Activity and Context Recognition for HealthCare applications
 - Data Fusion and Context elaboration in Pervasive HealthCare 
 - Challenges surrounding Data Mining and Data Quality in Pervasive 
 - Artificial Intelligence and Expert Systems in Pervasive e-Health
 - Virtual reality approaches for rehabilitation
 - Human Computer Interaction, usability and acceptability for Pervasive 
e-Health systems
 - Home Monitoring and Ambient Assisted applications for HealthCare
 - Social implications of Pervasive HealthCare Technology
 - Users Modeling and Personalization in Mobile e-Health
 - Therapeutic Serious Games

Proposal Content
Workshop title
Abstract (less than 200 words)
Name, affiliation, postal address, and e-mail address for each organizer
Identification of the primary contact person(s)

Background and Motivation: What is the overall topic of the workshop? Why 
is this topic of particular interest at this time? If the workshop has 
been organized in the past at Pervasive Health or other conferences, 
please give details of previous instances (venue, URL) and describe why it 
should be held again and how it will extend and build upon previous ones.

Objectives: What are the objectives that the workshop aims to achieve? 
Objectives may include but are not limited to (a) targeting a predefined 
set of focus questions, (b) presenting alternate views on a particular 
issue that is of concern to the Pervasive Health community and attempting 
to resolve the issue, (c) identifying priorities for new directions of 
research, and/or (d) initiating the appropriate collaborations and 
building community around a theme of interest. If you have a plan to 
produce a book or a journal special issue as a result of your workshop, 
please indicate these plans.

Format: Give a description of the proposed workshop format, including the 
target number of participants, planned activities (such as introductions, 
invited talks, breakout group activities, demos, general discussion), as 
well as how these activities address the workshop objectives. Preference 
will be given to proposals for activities designed to fuel discussion and 
interaction among participants; workshops consisting solely of paper 
presentations are discouraged. Provide a preliminary schedule with 
estimated times. Design your schedule for a length of 6 hours (full-day 
workshop) with a lunch break and two coffee breaks.

Soliciting Submissions: Indicate how you plan to attract submissions 
and/or participants. Tactics may include creating a workshop web page, 
circulating a call to relevant mailing lists, and publicizing your 
workshop at other relevant venues.
Selecting Participants: Indicate how you plan to select participants and 
contributions to the workshop. Describe the relevant criteria and/or 
review process that will be used to select position papers. Indicate if 
you are planning to have a program committee to help with the 
organization/review process or whether reviewing and selection will be 
conducted solely by the organizers. Having a program committee is strongly 
encouraged since it typically increases the appeal of the workshop and 
ensures a more rigorous peer-review process.

Organizers: Give short descriptions of each of the organizers' background 
and interests related to pervasive computing and the specific workshop 

Workshop Selection
Workshop proposals will be peer-reviewed by the Co-Chairs and a committee 
of experts based on the criteria described above. We aim to select a 
diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on 
overlapping themes. 

Organizers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call for 
Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants and solicit 
submissions. The criteria for assessment will include:

 - Originality and technical merit of the topic
 - Motivation
 - Wider interest in the topic
 - Topical link to the main conference
 - Workshops Journal Special Issue
