Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this call...


Pervasive Health Conference will be held in Atlanta, USA, May 18 - 20, 2019.

The 14th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for
Healthcare, Pervasive Health 2020 invites Posters proposals that address
innovative and important topics related to the application of pervasive
technologies in the field of healthcare.
Posters aim at reporting on the progress of ongoing research and insights
into the lessons learned from current pervasive healthcare projects.
Posters invite a wide range of topics and types of work including
evaluations, methodologies, technological innovation, and design in the
area of pervasive health. Please note that a shorter version of already
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.

Posters provide authors an opportunity to present their ongoing 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

We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not
limited to:

*Understanding Users*

-Identifying and addressing stakeholder needs

-Usability and acceptability

-Barriers and enablers to adoption

-Social implications of pervasive health technology, and social inclusion

-Coverage and delivery of pervasive healthcare services

-Patient and caregiver empowerment

-Diversity: population and condition-specific requirements

-Inclusive research and design: engaging underrepresented populations

-Digital interventions and health behavior change


-Autonomous systems to support independent living
-Clinical applications, validation and evaluation studies
-Telemedicine and mHealth solutions
-Chronic disease and health risk management applications
-Health/Wellbeing promotion and disease prevention
-Home-based health and wellness measurement and monitoring
-Continuous vs event-driven monitoring of patients
-Smart homes and hospitals
-Using mobile devices in the storage, update, and transmission of patient
-Wellbeing and lifestyle support
-Systems to support individuals with auditory, cognitive, or vision
-Systems to support caregivers

*Knowledge Representation and Reasoning*

-Physiological models for interpreting medical sensor data
-Activity recognition and fall detection
-User modeling and personalization
-Modeling of Pervasive Healthcare environments
-Sensor-based decision support systems
-Design and evaluation of the patient and ambient-related sensors
-Wearable and implantable sensor integration
-Data fusion in pervasive healthcare environments
-Data mining of medical patient records
-Software architectures
-Electronic Health Records

*Pervasive Healthcare Management*

-Challenges surrounding data quality
-Standards and interoperability in pervasive healthcare
-Business cases and cost issues
-Security and privacy issues
-Training of healthcare professional for pervasive healthcare
-Legal and regulatory issues
-Staffing and resource management

*Submission and Review Process*
Poster submissions should be a maximum of *4 pages *including references,
figures, tables, and appendix.

All submissions have to comply with the *ACM_SigConf template* (see Author’s
kit section <>).
The deadline for the submissions is *February 7h, 2020*. Authors should
submit their extended abstracts using CONFY platform accordingly to the
link below (you need to register in CONFY system at
prior to submitting your poster):

*Submit your POSTER* here
*Note that submissions are accepted only in PDF format.*
Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process, and
the posters will be selected through a double-blind review process and the
authors’ name and affiliation must not be on the paper. 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 a unique and substantial contribution beyond what has
already been published or submitted.

Posters will be published in EUDL and as part of Pervasive Health
Proceedings by EAI Core and submitted for inclusion in leading indexing
services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef,
Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

*Important Dates*

Submission deadline: February 7th, 2020
Notification of acceptance: February 28th, 2020
Camera-ready deadline: March 15th, 2020
Start of Conference: 18th May 2020
