MobileHealth 2012
The Second ACM MobiHoc Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Healthcare

To be held in conjunction with MobiHoc 2012
June 11-14, 2012. Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA


Technical sponsorship: ACM SIGMOBILE


Scope of the workshop

Average age of the population tends to increase and the number of
people requiring care intensive medical monitoring is not small. This
increases overall cost of medical care. Therefore, partially replacing
the assistance of nursing staff by small health surveillance and
communication equipments like sensors, networks, monitoring software
could be cost effective and would also increase life standard. Recent
Advances in technology has led to the development of small, intelligent,
wearable sensors capable of remotely performing critical health monitoring
tasks and then transmitting patient's data back to health care centers over
wireless medium. Such wireless health monitoring platforms aim to
continuously monitor mobile patients needing permanent surveillance.

However, to set up such platforms several issues along the communication
chain should be resolved. The acquisition of medical information via a set
of wireless sensors embedded in the patient himself, the treatment and use
of this information either by a local contractor equipment or offset after
transfer in 3G and/or WiFi connection to a data server, the access to the
collected data, ...etc. are some of the important challenges that we have
to consider. Each level represents a fairly complex subsystem with a local
hierarchy employed to ensure efficiency, portability, security, and reduced

After the success of MobileHealth'2011 in Paris - France, the second
edition of the workshop will be held in Hilton Head Island - South
Carolina - USA on June 11th, 2012 in conjunction with the 13th
edition of ACM MobiHoc conference (MobiHoc 2012). MobileHealth'2012
workshop aims to provide a forum for the interaction of these multiple
areas and would be an important chance to discuss and understand what
aspects have to be considered to provide effective pervasive wireless
healthcare systems.
The workshop will include presentations of theoretical and experimental
achievements, innovative wireless systems, prototyping efforts, case
studies and advances in technology related to wireless healthcare
networking and systems.

This announcement solicits technical papers describing original,
previously unpublished research, not currently under review by
another conference or journal. Submissions should clearly identify
how they relate to issues on wireless healthcare networking systems.
Contributions describing an overall working system are particularly of

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Mobile devices for healthcare
- Wearable and Implantable Wireless sensors for healthcare
- Communications infrastructure for mobile healthcare apps
- Protocols for wireless healthcare
- Scalability, performance and reliability of mobile healthcare apps
- Pervasive Wireless communications in healthcare
- Service and device discovery
- Data fusion and context elaboration
- Wireless monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
- Energy Efficiency in Wireless health monitoring
- Pervasive Health Systems and Services
- Authentication and Sensors' monitoring
- Confidentiality and Data Security
- Mobile Interfaces for Data Visualization
- Realizations and Platforms
- Standards for mobile healthcare

Manuscript submissions

Submitted regular papers must be up to 6 pages
(US letter size, 8.5 X 11 inches) and short papers up to 4 pages
including text, figures and references. It should be in PDF format
having a font size no smaller than 10pt. Short papers should present
future research directions, ongoing work, visionary, innovative ideas.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
register and present the paper.

Further submission instructions could be found on the workshop web site.
