         Second IEEE PerCom Workshop on Pervasive Health Technologies

                         C A L L   F O R   P A P E R S

Kona, Hawaii, March 13 or 17, 2017

Held in conjunction with IEEE PerCom
	The IEEE Pervasive Computing and Communications Conference 

Healthy living and access to appropriate healthcare have become major concerns 
and behavioral drivers for people in today's societies. This is also reflected 
in the economy, as an average middle class family in the U.S. spends on average 
22% of their income on healthcare. This impact is further emphasized as 
population aging has become a significant issue in developed countries, heaving
a negative effect on the relative supply of healthcare providers and thus
further increasing cost. Information technology has the potential to help 
disrupt the resulting cost spiral and reduce the financial and societal burden 
that healthcare can pose. 

With today's relative free flow of information, people have access to more 
relevant information and thus can afford to make better health decisions. 
Pervasive technologies cannot only help provide, manage, and analyze passive 
health information but can be used to monitor health parameters in persons and 
thus provide more tailored information. Such monitoring could also provide 
value added information when visiting healthcare professionals. In the context
of the workshop we use the term "pervasive health" as the superset of soft- 
and hardware technologies that can help people manage their health in a 
pervasive manner.

The PerHealth Workshop focuses on pervasive information and medical-device 
technologies that can aid people in managing their own health. We will provide
a forum where hardware, software, and middleware technologies are discussed 
that relate to aging in place, geriatrics, chronic disease management, health 
management, or that could help people with disabilities.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Wearable and implantable sensors for pervasive healthcare
* Communications in pervasive healthcare
* Service and device discovery for pervasive healthcare
* Data fusion and context elaboration in pervasive healthcare
* Privacy and security issues in pervasive healthcare
* Middleware for pervasive healthcare
* Energy Efficiency in pervasive health monitoring
* Artificial intelligence and expert systems for pervasive health 
* User interface, usability and acceptability of pervasive healthcare systems
* Home monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
* Pervasive healthcare applications for clinicians
* Business models of pervasive health delivery
* Pervasive healthcare Standards and frameworks 
* Integration of ambient intelligence with healthcare
* Learning, and prediction of living activities and patterns 
* Smart environments for healthy living and/or aging in place
* Social impact of pervasive technologies

Submitted papers must be original contributions that are unpublished and are not
currently under consideration for publication by other venues. Submissions are 
limited to a maximum length of 6 pages and must adhere to IEEE format (2 column,
10 pt font). Templates are available via the workshop website. Accepted papers 
ill be published in the IEEE PerCom Workshop Proceedings. Note, that each 
accepted paper requires a full  PerCom registration (there is no registration 
available for workshops only)!
