Design Methods and Processes for Pervasive Healthcare
A Special Issue of Design Studies

**Guest Editors
Ben SALEM   University of Liverpool, UK
Natalia ROMERO   Delft University of Technology, NL
JungKyoon YOON   Cornell University, USA

This special issue is a continuation of a workshop ‘Design Contributions to
Pervasive Healthcare (DCPH),’ organised as part of the 13th EAI
International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare
- 20-23 May 2019, Trento, Italy.
While authors of papers submitted to the workshop have been invited to
submit a revised and extended version of their manuscript, this special
issue is open to submissions not originating from the workshop. Provided
they fall within the remit of the special issue theme.

Within the context of this call for paper, Pervasive Healthcare is defined
as services,  products or systems of healthcare that are available in most
locations for some time, at a specific location for most of the time or
everywhere all the time.

**Paper Topics
This special issue has been planned as a collection of papers on the
contribution design (e.g., industrial, interaction, service, or product
design) has in Pervasive Healthcare.  In particular, the papers are
expected to address reporting, analysis and critique of design
methodologies and processes at the different stages of maturity of
Pervasive Healthcare designs (e.g., exploration, conceptualisation,
iterative prototyping, implementation, validation of effects, final
product). Discussions are encouraged to address the contribution (e.g.,
research/design goal), procedures (e.g., validation setup), and methods
(e.g., measurement tools) that these different stages have on design and
healthcare. The context of Pervasive Healthcare includes, yet is not
limited to:

=>Provide a user-centred approach, to facilitate motivation, engagement and
support; to address user’s needs and their vulnerability;
=>Match the users’ needs, their expectations and lifestyles; provide daily
interactions that are seamless, adequate and effective; foster long-lasting
motivation and engagement that are conducive to effective healthcare
=>Address management of personal health-related data in an ethical,
informed and empowered way; ensure valid user data (e.g., compliance and
honesty), manage data and content (e.g., overflow, overabundance or
scarcity); take into account and adapt to the users’ contexts
=>Minimise if not avoid unforeseen side-effects due to the pervasive
healthcare system interventions in the users’ daily lives
=>Deliver a concept, a prototype or a working product, system or service
that deliver pervasive healthcare or part thereof; deliver usable and user
serviceable technology
=>Investigate different design methods, approaches, and processes within
the context of pervasive healthcare

**Important Dates (note the fast turnaround)
5th July 2019 Enquiries about submissions
23rd August 2019 Submission of papers
31st October 2019 ­Outcome notification following peer-review
31st January 2020 Final submission
