SmartHealth: the 7th International Workshop on Technologies for Health and Wellbeing
7th December 2015 at OzCHI, Melbourne

An abundance of health-oriented technologies is becoming available to the public. Yet researchers suspect that many may be medically ineffective, poor in usability, or insufficiently engaging to maintain use over time. Thus to create effective health technologies, it is claimed that collaboration between health and technology researchers is essential. But how should this collaboration proceed? Researchers and practitioners working at the intersection of HCI and health are invited to join this one-day workshop where attendees will share experiences and attempt to articulate how a cross-disciplinary collaboration can best proceed.

The workshop is part of OzCHI 2015, Australia's annual conference on Human-Computer Interaction, to be held in Melbourne in December 2015.

Important Dates:
* Position papers: August 28th
* Notifications: September 25th
* Workshop: December 7th

Taking part:
We invite participants to submit 2-4 page position papers in ACM Extended Abstract Format describing the design, implementation or evaluation of technologies for health and wellbeing. We welcome submissions related (but not limited) to the following topics:
* Frameworks and methods for designing and evaluating health technologies;
* Models for collaboration between researchers across health and technology domains;
* Case studies that illustrate problems and solutions that arise in collaboration.

Papers will be reviewed by the workshop organizers with respect to relevance, quality of presentation, and potential to stimulate discussion. At least one author of each accepted submission must register for the workshop and at least one day of the main conference.

Please see for more details.
