Call For Papers

MobileHealth 2013
Third ACM MobiHoc Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Healthcare

To be held in conjunction with MobiHoc 2013
29 July - 1 August, 2013. Bangalore, India


Technical sponsorship: ACM SIGMOBILE


Scope of the workshop

After the two first successful editions of MobileHealth, MobileHealth'2011
in Paris (France) and MobileHealth'2012 in Hilton Head Island (USA), the
third edition of the workshop will be held in Bangalore - India on
July 29th, 2013 in conjunction with the 14th edition of ACM MobiHoc
symposium (MobiHoc 2013).

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 cost.
MobileHealth'2013 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previously unpublished research, not currently under review by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.
