Designing Entertainment for Health and Rehabilitation
This workshop will be held as part of the INTETAIN 2017 conference
June 20-22, 2017, Funchal, Madeira, Portugal:

Health and healthy living is clearly important to us humans, and we all
want to have healthy and active lives which we can enjoy for as long as
possible. In this context, it is not surprising that an increasing number
of tools and technologies are being developed to support us in this regard.
Many of these tools and technologies tend to rely on our desire to have fun
and be entertained, while working towards achieving our health-related
goals and needs. Despite the popularity of research and development in the
area of entertainment for health, there are not many opportunities for
researchers and practitioners to meet and discuss their interests and
ideas. This workshop aims to provide such a forum enabling researchers and
practitioners to share  learnings and experiences related to design,
development, evaluation, and deployment of entertainment systems for health
and rehabilitation.

We invite researchers and practitioners from related backgrounds to submit
a paper reporting their contributions to the topics of the workshop. Topics
of interest include, but are not limited, to the following: healthy living,
rehabilitation, prevention, aging, independent living, person-centred
approaches, connected health, and quality of life and wellbeing.

Workshop Programme
This half-day workshop will consist of short presentations (5-10 minutes)
of the accepted papers, a follow-up interactive poster session to allow
discussions, a brief design activity, and time for concluding discussions
and planning of future directions.

Important Dates
Paper Submission deadline: 21 April 2017
Notification of acceptance: 5 May 2017
Camera-ready deadline: 19 May 2017
Workshop date: 20 June 2017

All accepted workshop papers will be published in the official INTETAIN
proceedings (Springer LNICST). Papers will undergo a regular reviewing
process by members of the workshop’s programme committee.

Papers should be no more than 4 pages long, and prepared according to the
Springer LNICST format. Microsoft Word and LaTex templates, as well as
complete formatting instructions can be found at: Papers should be sent for reviewing as
a PDF file emailed to [log in to unmask]
