11th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare

May 23–26, 2017 | Barcelona, Spain

Call for Posters and Demos – PervasiveHealth 2017

The 11th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, Pervasive Health 2017 - http://www.pervasivehealth.org invites proposals that address innovative and important topics related to the application of pervasive technologies in the field of healthcare. This is divided into two categories: Posters and Demos.

Posters aim at reporting on the progress of ongoing research and insights into the lessons learned from current (industrial, practitioners, government, etc.) pervasive healthcare practice. Posters invite a wide range of topics and types of work including formative or summative evaluations, methodologies, technological innovation, and design in the area of pervasive health. A shorter version of published work will be rejected. We encourage the authors to use the Posters venue as a way to open up discussions with the Pervasive Health community about their early work in progress and develop the work for future publication and innovation.

Demos will showcase the latest developments and prototypes related to the topics of interest of the conference. 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. The expected demo submissions should describe the technical details of the demo alongside its contribution to the pervasive healthcare domain.

Contributions

Posters and Demos provide authors an opportunity to demonstrate or present their work, including research, service, prototype or product addressing one or more of the suggested topics as presented in the general call for participation. A successful submission communicates ideas and concepts in a powerful way that a regular presentation cannot. All accepted submissions are showcased during the conference, where the presenters have the ability to interact with the conference attendees, and showcase their work and technologies. We therefore encourage making your presentation visually or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way.

We welcome contributions from the following fields:

  • Sensing/Actuating Technologies and Pervasive Computing
  • Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions
  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
  • Hardware and Software Infrastructures

Submission and Review Process

The submission should be formatted using the ACM SICHI extended abstract template. Please view the SIGCHI guidelines and templates here.

Poster submissions should be a maximum of 4 pages including references, figures, tables, and appendix. Demo submissions should be a maximum of 2 pages including references, figures, tables, and appendix.

The deadline for the submissions is 31st March 2017 5pm PST. Authors should submit their extended abstracts using the EasyChair submission system. If you don't have an EasyChair account, the link will allow you to create one.  Note that submissions are accepted only in PDF format.

Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process, and the posters and demos will be selected through a single-blind review process and authors name and affiliation must be on the paper. 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. Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation, as well as the potential to include participation by conference attendees. The submission should make explicit how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been published or submitted.

Publication

Accepted proposals abstracts (including figures) of the demonstration will be distributed in the conference proceedings. Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
