Cyber-ESEH 2017 : IEEE CyberSciTech 2017 Special Session on Cyber-Enabled Smart Environment and Healthcare
Call For Papers
Scope and topics
In this special session, we are interested in research on cyber-enabled systems, technologies, and applications related to smart environment and healthcare. Smart home technologies have been starting to reach millions of consumers. Such technologies promise to make our life much easier and enjoyable. There are many exciting open research opportunities, such as context-aware sensing and decision making, intention recognition based on body languages as well as oral commands, realtime monitoring and intervention for home-based care for patients with autism, ADHD, mild cognitive impairment, or dementia. This line of research has a unique characteristic in that the target physical elements are predominantly human beings. Various sensors could be used to monitor the state of a person, which could be the vital signs or the quality and quantity of designated activities performed by the person. The technology developed for cyber-enabled smart environment and healthcare should be capable of detecting key events, establish behavioral patterns, communicating with cloud services for additional information if needed, and understand the situation, which would lead to appropriate feedback or intervention, either to the patient themselves directly, or to healthcare professionals.
Topic of interests of this special session include, but not limited to:
• Smart and connected health
• Smart home
• Internet of Things
• Wearable sensing and computing
• Speech recognition and speaker identification
• Computer vision and image processing
• Behavior analysis and modeling of human activities
• Context-aware sensing and decision making
• Human-cyber-physical interaction
• Sensing, networking, and computing with smart phones and wearable devices
Authors are invited to submit their original work that has not previously been submitted or published in any other venue. Submitted papers need to abide by IEEE Computer Society formats. Final papers must be formatted accordingly (see “IEEE Manuscript Templates”) and submitted via EDAS https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=23118 under this special session track.
Types of submission
Authors may submit their works as either regular papers of 4-6 pages or poster/position papers of 2-4 pages. All papers need to be in IEEE CS format and submitted following the same instruction on the CyberSciTech 2017 congress web site.
If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to present the work in order for the paper to be included in the IEEE Digital Library.
Journal publications of extended conference papers
Selected papers will be recommended to the IEEE Access (impact factor 3.244) special section on human-centered smart systems and technologies (http://ieeeaccess.ieee.org/special-sections/human-centered-smart-systems-technologies/) after significant extension, which is due December 31, 2017.
