The 4th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, 
Pervasive Health 2010, is soliciting proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with 
the conference. The workshops will take place during the first day of the conference 
(March 22nd, 2010).

We invite workshop proposals that address innovative and important topics related to the 
application of pervasive technologies in the field of health care. The workshops should 
establish an informal forum for participants to exchange developing research results and 

Potential workshop proposers are requested to submit a 3-page workshop proposal 
including a timely topic of interest to the Workshop Chairs
Lena Mamykina (mamykina [at] and Andreas Hein
(andreas.hein [at] Outcome of workshop proposals will be announced 
on the 2nd of November 2009 by e-mail.

Each workshop should have one or more organizers and an international program 
committee. The proposal should include:

- Title of the proposed workshop
- Abstract (less than 200 words)
- Names and full addresses, including contact details, of the workshop chairs and 
Program Committee members
- Short description of the motivation and objectives as well as the original and technical 
merit of the topic
- Tentative agenda and intended audience
- Tentative timeline for submitting workshop position papers, review of papers, and

Pervasive Health

Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline, focusing on the development and 
application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for healthcare and wellness. 
Pervasive healthcare seeks to respond to a variety of pressures on healthcare systems, 
including the increased incidence of life-style related and chronic diseases, emerging 
consumerism in healthcare, need for empowering patients and relatives for self-care and 
management of their health, and need to provide seamless access for health care 
services, independent of time and place.

Pervasive healthcare may be defined from two perspectives. First, it is the development 
and application of pervasive computing (or ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence) 
technologies for healthcare, health and wellness management. Second, it seeks to make 
healthcare available to anyone, anytime, and anywhere by removing locational, time and 
other restraints while increasing both the coverage and quality of healthcare.

The Pervasive Healthcare conference aims to gather together technology experts, 
practitioners, industry and national authorities contributing towards the development and 
application of human-centered pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for 
healthcare and wellness.
