* Design Contributions to Pervasive Healthcare Workshop CFP *

Workshop at Pervasive Health 2020 <>
14th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for
Healthcare - 18-20 May 2020 Atlanta, Georgia, US.

A combination of design (e.g. Interaction Design, Product Design),
engineering (e.g. assistive robotics, wearables) and system (e.g. data
management, distributed interventions) approaches to pervasive healthcare
should deliver a better quality of care and quality of life to the
patients. 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).

** Workshop Topics
This second edition of the workshop will focus on Design, Sciences &
Technologies for Healthy Ageing:
- How to ensure people can enjoy at least 5 extra healthy, independent
years of life, while narrowing the gap between the experiences of the
wealthiest and poorest, between the quality of life of the healthiest and
the most ill.
- How to develop and deliver products and services to support and accompany
people as they age.
- How to allow people to remain active, productive, independent and
socially connected across generations for as long as possible from middle
age onwards.

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.

**Submissions key dates
13 March 2020 – Deadline for paper submission to the workshop
27 March 2020 – Workshop papers notification
10 April 2020 – Deadline for camera ready submission

**Submission Instructions
Submission of workshop papers is done via, EAI’s very own
submission system.
Contributions to the workshop will be reviewed by a technical programme
committee and final decisions will be made by the workshop organisers
taking into account the originality of contribution and relevance to
workshop theme.
Please prepare your 4-6 pages paper using the ACM 2-column format. View the
ACM guidelines and templates at this link :
and please read the below instructions. Please be sure to use the correct
Category and Subject Descriptor in your paper. See the above guidelines for
instructions and visit for more

**Workshop Schedule
It is anticipated that the workshop will be a one day event, with the
morning session dedicated to the presentation of the workshop vision (by
the workshop organisers), and then presentations of the position papers
followed by Q&A.
The afternoon session will be divided between a presentation of the
SciTech4AGE consortium, discussion about the challenge of healthy ageing
and an opportunity to build connections between the SciTech4AGE consortium
and academia and Industry worldwide.

**Workshop Organisers
Ben SALEM – The University of Liverpool, UK – SciTech4AGE consortium
I have a lasting interest in the combination of approaches applied to
pervasive healthcare. I am leading a large consortium of UK universities
and industry to address the Healthy ageing challenge set up by the UK

Emma WILSON – Lancaster University, UK
My research interests lie in applying and developing systems and control
theory to improve health and well-being.
