2019 Workshop Organising Committee invites proposals for the workshop

pervasive healthcare. Innovative, high-risk frontier research ideas are
particularly welcome as a main topic of a workshop.



Workshop Proposals:
• November 9th, 2018: Workshop proposals deadline
• November 16th, 2018: Notification of acceptance/rejection of a workshop

Pervasive Health workshops are dynamic and intimate forums in which to
explore and discuss topics in depth. We therefore encourage having an
international team of organizers for a workshop who are from different
institutions and represent a variety of perspectives. We aim for a balanced
workshop program offering a diverse set of themes. Because of the unique
opportunity for discussion this forum offers, we encourage workshop plans
that emphasize interactive components, group activities, and discussion
over those that focus on individual talks. Organizers should be active
themselves in the field in which they propose a workshop. All listed
organizers are expected to attend those workshops they are organizing;
i.e., do not include a potential organizer who may not be present at the
workshop. Any change to the workshop organization team must be submitted in
writing at least two weeks prior to the position paper deadline for
individual workshops. No changes to the workshop organization team can be
made after this date to ensure that potential participants submitting
position papers to workshops are aware of the final organization team.
Please feel free to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal by email with the
workshop chairs prior to submission.

All submissions should be emailed to the workshop chair ([log in to unmask]) no
later than November 9th, 2018. For pre-proposal submission inquiries
contact the workshop co-chairs. We solicit workshops in all areas related
to Pervasive Computing for Healthcare. In particular innovative, high-risk
frontier research ideas are particularly welcome as a main topic of a

-Workshop title

-Abstract (less than 200 words)

-Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each organizer
-Identification of the primary contact person(s)
-Background and Motivation: What is the overall topic of the workshop? Why
is this topic of particular interest at this time? If the workshop has been
organized in the past at Pervasive Health or other conferences, please give
details of previous instances (venue, URL) and describe why it should be
held again and how it will extend and build upon previous ones.
-Objectives: What are the objectives that the workshop aims to achieve?
Objectives may include but are not limited to (a) targeting a predefined
set of focus questions, (b) presenting alternate views on a particular
issue that is of concern to the Pervasive Health community and attempting
to resolve the issue, (c) identifying priorities for new directions of
research, and/or (d) initiating the appropriate collaborations and building
community around a theme of interest. If you have a plan to produce a book
or a journal special issue as a result of your workshop, please indicate
these plans.
-Format: Give a description of the proposed workshop format, including the
target number of participants, planned activities (such as introductions,
invited talks, breakout group activities, demos, general discussion), as
well as how these activities address the workshop objectives. Preference
will be given to proposals for activities designed to fuel discussion and
interaction among participants; workshops consisting solely of paper
presentations are discouraged. Provide a preliminary schedule with
estimated times. Design your schedule for a length of 6 hours of activities
with a lunch break and two coffee breaks (full-day workshop).
-Soliciting Submissions: Indicate how you plan to attract submissions
and/or participants. Tactics may include creating a workshop web page,
circulating a call to relevant mailing lists (indicate these please as
well), and publicizing your workshop at other relevant venues.
-Selecting Participants: Indicate how you plan to select participants and
contributions to the workshop. Describe the relevant criteria and/or review
process that will be used to select position papers. Indicate if you are
planning to have a program committee to help with the organization/review
process or whether reviewing and selection will be conducted solely by the
organizers. Having a program committee is strongly encouraged since it
typically increases the appeal of the workshop and ensures a more rigorous
peer-review process.
-Organizers: Give short descriptions of each of the organizers’ background
and interests related to pervasive computing and the specific workshop

Workshop proposals will be peer-reviewed by the Co-Chairs and a committee
of experts based on the criteria described above. We aim to select a
diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on overlapping
themes. Organisers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call
for Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants and solicit
submissions. In order to promote vivid discussions with more participants
to the workshops, EAI will provide Workshop Organisers with one free
registration to the Workshop for each 8 papers accepted to their workshop.

The criteria for assessment will include:
-Originality and technical merit of the topic
-Wider interest in the topic
-Topical link to the main conference
