*Call for Papers: e-Coaching for Health and Wellbeing (eCHW-2017)*

After a successful first event in November 2015 in Eindhoven, the 
Netherlands, a scientific conference on e-Coaching for Health and 
Wellbeing will be held in Amsterdam on *January 26-27, 2017.*

The e-Coaching for Health and Wellbeing (eCHW) is a bi-yearly scientific 
conference about all aspects relevant to e-coaching applications that 
support people in adopting or maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A healthy 
lifestyle is – among others – reflected in sufficient physical activity, 
good sleeping and eating patterns, and behaviours related to stress 
reduction and mental wellbeing. This research area is of importance to 
understanding fundamental scientific issues of behavior change through 
technological systems, as well as crucial for developing innovations 
highly needed in society.

The conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from 
several fields, including psychology, computer science, health sciences, 
human-computer interaction, ethics and artificial intelligence. The 
contributions to the conference will be peer-reviewed.

*Keynote speakers*

Confirmed keynote speakers include *Timothy Bickmore*, Associate 
Professor in the college of Computer and Information Science of the 
Northeastern University, and *Paschal Sheeran*, Professor in the 
Department of Psychology and Neuroscience of the University of 
North-Carolina, *Susan Michie*, professor of Health Psychology at 
University College London (UCL) and *Denny Borsboom*, Psychology 
Department of the University of Amsterdam.


The conference focuses on e-coaching elements that are common for 
different application areas, including the use of sensors and software 
methodology, ethical and societal aspects, and ways to persuade people 
to comply. The conference solicits contributions on topics proposed 
below and related issues.

* Technology: sensor measurement, architecture and implementation, 
networking, ubiquitous computing.
* Data processing and analysis in relation to e-coaching: big data, 
sensor data, managing inconsistent data from various sources, etc.
* Functionality: monitoring, task scheduling, ecological momentary 
* Generic design: interaction principles, goal setting, ontologies.
* Persuasive strategies: adaptation, tailoring, motivational support, 
* Applications: related to domains such as: nutrition, physical 
activity, sleep, stress & relaxation, procrastination.
* Implementation of therapeutic techniques in e-coaching
* Methodological issues: scenarios, ecological design, generic design, 
interaction, coaching trajectories, scheduling.
* Testing, validation and evaluation: simulation and experimental 
design, RCT’s for mobile systems, performance measurement.
* Societal embedding, impact and target groups, economic implications.
* Theoretical frameworks for coaching or support systems.
* Usage of gaming for behaviour change: coach in gaming, gaming as a 
persuasive strategy.
* Ethical implications: transparency, autonomy, privacy, self-esteem, 
reliability, trust.
* Legal and policy implications.


Papers of maximum 12 pages in Springer LNCS format can be submitted via 
the website. The proceedings of the conference will be published by 
**Important dates*
