Call For Papers


7th October 2013
Lyon, France
in conjunction with 9th IEEE WiMob 2013

The international workshop on e-Health Pervasive Wireless Applications and Services e-HPWAS'13 (in conjunction with the 9th IEEE WiMob conference) targets providing optimal, secured and context aware e-health services with the best quality of services (QoS) and user’s experience (QoE). Applications and services are considered in wireless environments and architecture with a strong heterogeneity of the used access technologies, sensors, terminals, users’ needs and services (data, content, live streams or complex network services). Emerging e-Health services and applications can involve the use of “heavy” content such as multimedia content and streams (e.g. 3D-TV, media conferencing, remote live diagnostics) using conventional e-health equipments and devices but also using modern devices like smart TV sets, home-boxes, smartphones and tablets. The considered issues of e-HPWAS are related to e-Health care and safety services provided for patients, elderly and dependent persons. These services are generally built using different communication technologies, for different profiles of people and in different contexts and places (e.g. in health institutions, at home, in the city). Ideally, provided services should be accessible anytime, anywhere and using any kind of device or platform.

eHPWAS encourages the submission of original works describing research results, practical or industrial e-health solutions. Papers describing advanced prototypes, platforms, techniques and general survey for discussing future perspectives and directions are also encouraged.

All accepted papers will be published in the WiMob 2013 conference proceedings published by IEEE. The workshops will be held in Lyon, France on October 7, 2013.

The e-HPWAS organizers plan to have selected papers appear in a special journal issue. A selection of accepted papers will be considered and authors will be invited to produce an extended version to be published in a special issue of the International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC):

All papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award. The workshop organizers will select a number of candidates for the award among accepted papers. The winner will be selected at the workshop, considering both the paper and the presentation. An Award will be given to the best paper presented at the workshop. The winners of the Award will be announced at the closing session of the workshop.
