Call for Special Session Papers
We invite researchers, academicians, practitioners, and others to submit original papers describing new research, applications or case studies to the following Special Sessions which are organized within the framework of the International ICST Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - MobiHealth 2010:
- Intelligent eHealth monitoring. The Session intends to explore systems that can be used for monitoring of a patient during an emergency event. The systems could be used for several types of emergency events like Cardiovascular problems(e.g. heart attacks, strokes), or major trauma cases (e.g serious injuries of the head or the spinal cord).
- Ubiquitous Healthcare. The Session intends to study the simultaneous use of multiple implantable and on-body sensors to continuously monitor a patient's physical and mental condition and their integration with environmental sensors for improved monitoring.
- Interoperability in eHealth. The Session intends to investigate eHealth interoperability in Europe addressing the basic components (identification, security, legal, organizational, technical and semantic interoperability), the current challenges, directions, and recommendations, and to present an eHealth interoperability framework.
- Ambient Assistive Technologies for Intelligent Healthcare Services. The Session intends to study ambient technologies for intelligent healthcare services, pervasive healthcare technologies and applications, services' personalisation and management in assisted living environments, intelligent interactive services environment for assisted living.
- Mobile Health Technologies, Applications and Integrated Systems for Chronic Disease Monitoring and Management. The Session intends to present recent advances in mobile health technologies which support the patient, the caregiver and the treating physicians as well as applications for chronic disease monitoring and management.
- Wireless Medical Implants. The Session intends to explore wireless medical implanted devices working either as sensors or stimulators and address issues related to low power consumption of the implant, high quality bidirectional data transmission between the implant (patient) and exterior equipment (caregivers) and patient safety.
- Wearable Devices. On body wireless Communications. The Session intends to study the design of wearable antennas and sensors and their integration into Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) and solve the issues of body and device interference, transmission and reception characteristics and network integration.
How to submit
Papers should be submitted to www.assyst-online.org by 30 June 2010. The preferred length for initial submission is 4 pages, however the length of final paper should not exceed 8 pages including all figures, tables and references. Extra pages will incur additional charges. The papers must be submitted in PDF format. All submissions will be peer reviewed, and acceptances will be provided by 30 July.
The Proceedings of Mobihealth 2010 will be published in LNICST, appear in SpringerLink and will be referenced in ICST's digital library, the European Union Digital Library (EUDL). Extended versions of selected papers of the conference will be invited for publication in journal special issues (SCI Indexed).
Student Paper Awards
Best student papers will be identified by the reviewers based on their relevance, content, significance, originality, presentation and overall recommendation. First, second and third place winners will be acknowledged with a MobiHealth 2010 Best Student Paper Certificate.
