= Second International Workshop on 
= Multimedia for Personal Health and Health Care
= at ACM Multimedia 2017, Mountain View, CA, USA
= October 23, 2017
= Submission Deadline: July 19, 2017

Call for papers

Research in multimedia and health is driven by the current technological 
advancements in sensors and personalised healthcare. In recent years we 
can observe many applications of health care and personal health that are 
addressed by core multimedia research questions, such as monitoring daily 
life activities, developing lifestyle and behavioral profiles, 
physiological and cognitive multimedia-based monitoring for health status 
assessment, among others. Applications can be as specific as the 
recognition of food to assess its nutritional content, multimodal 
visualization and correlation of lifestyle parameters to assess conditions 
such as dementia, or the development of personalized home assistants, used 
to help the elderly in their daily life, as society ages and the care 
ratio dwindles. There is an increasing number of research work that shows 
how core multimedia research is became an important enabler for 
applications with an application and relevance for the societal questions 
of health. 

Topics of interest
The special characteristic of the workshop is the joining of a challenging 
and highly application domain and multimedia research. The workshop is of 
a very interdisciplinary nature which is reflected by its faceted topics 
of interest, including, but not limited to:
* Fusing, interpretation and visualization of health and wellness data. 
* Supporting self-monitoring of personal health by multimedia
* Complex health monitoring from heterogeneous data streams
* Eye-movements and mental commands for impaired
* Brain computer interfaces and multimedia analysis.
* Multimedia in health behavior change technology
* Multimedia in personal health records
* Long term health monitoring beyond health behavior change 
* Making sense of personal data for health
* Multimedia activity monitoring of health related daily activities
* Health related event detection in large data collections
* Multimedia for the self-management of personal health
* Multimedia retrieval for personal big health data collections
* AR/VR for exploring multimedia health datat

All submissions must be original work not under review at any other 
workshop, conference, or journal. While the workshop will accept papers 
describing completed work as well as work-in-progress, the emphasis is on 
early discussion of novel and radical ideas (potentially of a 
controversial nature) rather than detailed description and evaluation of 
incremental advances. The workshop accepts full papers (8 pages), short 
papers (4 pages) and demos (2-4 pages) in pdf. Reviews will be 
single-blind: author names and affiliations should be included. 
Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of the main conference 
ACM MM 2017.
