EAI PervasiveHealth 2021 : 15th EAI International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare
Call For Papers
EAI Pervasivehealth 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).
If the local situation allows it, the event will take place on-site in its original location with an option for all authors to present remotely.
In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.
Pervasive Health is a premier international forum with a specific focus on technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing in healthcare and for wellbeing. The overall goal of the Pervasive Health conference is to take a multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare, technology, research and development.
Pervasive Health is addressing a broad scope of research topics and concerns: identify and understand problems from a technological, social, medical, and legal as well as financial perspective (with a particular emphasis on understanding and supporting patient and practitioner needs), design, implementation, and evaluation of supporting hardware and software infrastructures, algorithms, services and applications, and organizational strategies that facilitate integration of Pervasive Healthcare technology into the healthcare enterprise.
Traditional healthcare environments are extremely complex and challenging to manage, as they need to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various circumstances with a number of resource constraints. Pervasive Healthcare technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by successfully integrating them within existing healthcare environments.
It is essential that Pervasive Healthcare environments, through a combined approach of data collection, data correlation and data presentation, assist healthcare professionals in delivering high levels of patient care, and empower individuals and their families for self-care and health management.
Pervasive Health aims to gather technology experts, practitioners, industry and international authorities contributing towards the assessment, development and deployment of pervasive medical based technologies, standards and procedures.
The year of 2020 was challenging in all dimensions of Pervasive Health. Traditional ways of monitoring, diagnosing, treating and communicating/relationships between healthcare providers, patients and their families/caregivers changed dramatically, at once, and challenged the healthcare sector, industry and decision-makers. The challenges were clinical, technological, legal and social. Furthermore, the covid-19 pandemic brought some opportunities and the new technologies developed/adapted for care as well as new care models are here to stay.
Looking forward we need to understand which care models and technologies should be implemented in current\future care and how can we implement the technologies and combine them with the “human factor” to yield the best results for future healthcare.
The Pervasive Health conference this year will focus on lessons learned from the last year (of Covid-19), new technologies designed and developed to face the challenges, and the way healthcare systems should be re-designed in collaboration with the industry, academia and decision-makers to create advanced care systems.
All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.
PervasiveHealth proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
