* Design Contributions to Pervasive Healthcare 2nd CFP *


Workshop at Pervasive Health 2020 <>


14th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for

Healthcare - 18-20 May 2020 Atlanta, Georgia, US.

This workshop is about debating projects (as part of a Pervasive Healthcare
System - PHS) that encourage and support patients into adopting better
lifestyles to improve their condition, and into practicing better
self-management. This could be done with interventions to stimulate
long-lasting effects on patient motivation, affects, and engagement. The
medical benefits of such an approach are also of relevance, notably
improvement of medication compliance and reduction of the patients’ demand
on health services (visits to the hospital clinics, and interaction with
healthcare professionals for routine issues).

This workshop has been planned as a forum to discuss contributions to:

- Deliver long-lasting motivation and engagement changes that are conducive
to effective support and assistance healthcare

- Address daily interaction of patients with a PHS and with their medical
and personal data

- Allow for the personalisation and adaptation of the PHS to patients,
their condition, lifestyle, culture, and socio-economic particulars.

- Present the SciTech4AGE consortium and seek international partners.

The World Health Organisation

has declared the coronavirus a public health emergency. The Workshop is
currently scheduled to proceed as previously planned in May 2020. However,
we are committed to the health and safety of all involved, we are therefore
continuously monitoring the situation. For those already affected by the
virus outbreak, we will be flexible in terms of submission requirements on
a per case basis.
