Call for Posters and Demos – PervasiveHealth 2017
23 – 26 May 2017, Barcelona, Spain
Important Dates
* Submission deadline: *31st March 2017* (5:00pm PST)
* Notification of acceptance: 21st April 2017
* Camera-ready deadline: 1st May 2017
The 11th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for
Healthcare, PervasiveHealth 2017, invites proposals that address innovative
and important topics related to the application of pervasive technologies
in the field of healthcare. This call is divided into two categories: *Posters
and Demos*.

*Posters* aim at reporting on the progress of ongoing research and insights
into the lessons learned from current (industrial, practitioners,
government, etc.) pervasive healthcare practice. Posters invite a wide
range of topics and types of work including formative or summative
evaluations, methodologies, technological innovation, and design in the
area of pervasive health. A shorter version of published work will be
rejected. We encourage the authors to use the Posters venue as a way to
open up discussions with the Pervasive Health community about their early
work in progress and develop the work for future publication and innovation.

*Demos* will showcase the latest developments and prototypes related to the
topics of interest of the conference. We seek proposals for demonstrations
of pervasive technologies across the full environment of healthcare,
starting from clinical applications to wearable, ambient and home based
health monitoring technologies up to assistive devices and educational or
motivational aids. The expected demo submissions should describe the
technical details of the demo alongside its contribution to the pervasive
healthcare domain.
Posters and Demos provide authors an opportunity to demonstrate or present
their work, including research, service, prototype or product addressing
one or more of the suggested topics as presented in the general call for
participation. A successful submission communicates ideas and concepts in a
powerful way that a regular presentation cannot. All accepted submissions
are showcased during the conference, where the presenters have the ability
to interact with the conference attendees, and showcase their work and
technologies. We therefore encourage making your presentation visually or
otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way.

We welcome contributions from the following fields:
* Sensing/Actuating Technologies and Pervasive Computing
* Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions
* Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work
* Hardware and Software Infrastructures
*Submission and Review Process*
The submission should be formatted using the ACM SICHI extended abstract
Please view the SIGCHI guidelines and templates here

Poster submissions should be a maximum of *4 pages* including references,
figures, tables, and appendix. Demo submissions should be a maximum of* 2
pages* including references, figures, tables, and appendix.

The deadline for the submissions is *31st March 2017*, 5pm PST. Authors
should submit their extended abstracts using the EasyChair submission system
<>. If you
don't have an EasyChair account, the link will allow you to create one.
Note that submissions are accepted only in PDF format.

Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process, and
the posters and demos will be selected through a single-blind review
process and authors name and affiliation must be on the submission. All
rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted
materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the
start of the conference. Submissions will be evaluated based on their
originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical
correctness and presentation, as well as the potential to include
participation by conference attendees. The submission should make explicit
how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has
already been published or submitted.

If you have questions, please contact the Poster and Demo Chairs: Nervo
Verdezoto ([log in to unmask]) and Aisling O’Kane (
