HealthWear 2020 : (Virtual) HealthWear 2020 - 2nd EAI International Conference on Wearables in Healthcare
Call For Papers
Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI HealthWear 2020 will take place online in a live stream.
Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.
A variety of relevant health and fitness parameters are now being captured via an ecosystem of consumer-oriented wearable self-tracking devices, smartphone apps and related services. Techniques from information science, sociology, psychology, statistics, machine learning and data mining are applied to analyze collected data.
These techniques provide new opportunities to enrich the understanding of individual and population health. Self-tracking data can provide better measures of everyday behaviour and lifestyle and can complement more traditional clinical data collection, towards a comprehensive picture of health.
HealthWear will bring together researchers, developers, designer and industry professionals from both Healthcare community and University to discuss key issues, opportunities and obstacles for personal health data research. These include challenges of capturing, summarizing, presenting and retrieving relevant information from heterogeneous sources to support a new vision of pervasive personal healthcare.
The works that will be presented at conference will focus on the following topics:
- Wearable devices and systems.
- Printable and Flexible electronics
- mHealth and/or eHealth
- Personal Health Informatics
