2nd Cfp: Mobile Wellness 2011

Workshop on Mobile Wellness – Collecting, Visualizing and Interacting with Personal Health Data
Mobile Wellness 2011 will be held in conjunction with Mobile HCI 2011.

Konrad Tollmar (KTH)
Frank Bentley (Motorola Mobility)
John Moore (MIT Media Lab
Alex Olwal (MIT Media Lab)
Time/Place: August 30, 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden
Contact: konrad[at]
Paper submission deadline: April 20, 2011

Mobile devices are now able to connect to a variety of well-being sensors and provide personalized information to help people reflect on and improve their health.  For example, pedometers, heart-rate sensors, glucometers, and other sensors can all provide real-time data to a variety of devices. Collecting and sense-making of personal well-being data is a growing research area. This workshop will focus on the ways in which our mobile devices can aggregate and visualize these types of well-being data and how these data streams can be presented to encourage interaction, increased awareness and positive behavior change. We invite contributions from health professionals, researchers, industry participants, social scientists, and others that have interest and experience in Mobile Wellness.

Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Mobile health systems
- Development and/or field testing mobile wellness applications
- Behavior change and reflection (esp. Social Scientists)
- Mobile well-being sensors
- Data aggregation and sense-making
- Mobile visualizations of health data
- Mobile behavior change strategies
- Studies and evaluations of mobile health systems
- User interfaces and interaction techniques for mobile health data

To participate please submit a paper on digital format (PDF) describing the author’s work in related domains and their goals for participation in the workshop to: konrad[at] by April 20th 2011.
