6th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare

May 21–24, 2012
San Diego, California, United States

Call for Exhibits and Demos

The 6th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, Pervasive Health 2012 (http://www.pervasivehealth.org/), invites demonstration proposals that address innovative and important topics related to the application of pervasive technologies in the field of healthcare. The demos track will showcase the latest developments and prototypes related to the topics of interest of the conference. The expected demo submissions should describe the technical details of the demo alongside its contribution to the healthcare domain.

Contributions

Demonstrations provide an opportunity to present a demonstration of your work, research, service, prototype or product addressing one or more of the suggested topics as presented in the general call for participation. We seek proposals for demonstrations of pervasive technologies across the full environment of healthcare, starting from clinical applications to wearable, ambient and home based health monitoring technologies up to assistive devices and educational or motivational aids. A successful demo communicates ideas and concepts in a powerful way, a regular presentation cannot. We therefore encourage making your demonstration visually or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way.

Submission and Review Process

Submissions should be a maximum of two pages (including figures). Your extended abstract should be submitted by March 23rd, 2012 (5:00pm GMT) directly to the Demo Chair Stefan Wagner (sw@iha.dk) and Marcela Rodriguez (marcerod@uabc.edu.mx), according to the IEEE Pervasive Health 2012 Proceedings format. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. 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. Demo proposals must describe the demo research framework, and what conference attendees will be able to enjoy and experiment. Proposals will be judged on their relevance for the Pervasive Health community, level of innovation, technical merit, conceptual contribution and the potential to include participation by conference attendees.

Note that network connectivity will be provided by the conference organization.

Publication

Accepted proposals abstracts (including figures) of the demonstration will be distributed together with the poster/workshop papers in the conference proceedings.
