Submit your paper to HealthWear 2016, the First EAI International Conference on Wearables in Healthcare, which will take place in Budapest, Hungary, on June 14-16 2016, co-located with the eHealth360 Summit.
The healthcare sector is experiencing a quick innovation thanks to the application of the latest advances in sensing and mobile systems. A variety of relevant health and fitness parameters are now being captured via an ecosystem of consumer-oriented wearable self-tracking devices. Techniques from information science, sociology, psychology, statistics, machine learning and data mining are applied to analyze collected data, in order to enrich understanding of individual and population health and lifestyle.
HealthWear 2016 will bring together researchers, developers, and industry professionals from both Healthcare and Quantified Self Communities to discuss key issues, opportunities and obstacles for personal health data research. These include challenges of capturing, summarizing, presenting and retrieving relevant information from heterogeneous sources to support a new vision of pervasive personal healthcare.
Some of the main topics of interest are:
- Personal Health Informatics
- Quantified Self for Healthcare
- Activity Monitors and Devices
- Healthcare Knowledge Representation & Reasoning
- Health Data acquisition, analysis and mining
- Healthcare Information Systems
All accepted papers will be published in Springer’s LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines. The proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus and EU Digital Library (EUDL). Selected papers will be also invited for publication in the EAI Endorsed Transaction Pervasive Health and Technology.
