Conference Call for Papers

Pervasive Health Conference is a premier international forum with specific focus on technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing in healthcare and for wellbeing. The overall goal of the Pervasive Health Conference is to take a multidisciplinary approach to Pervasive Healthcare Technology research and development.

The Pervasive Healthcare Conference aims to gather technology experts, practitioners, industry and international authorities contributing towards the assessment, development and deployment of pervasive medical based technologies, standards and procedures.

We welcome contributions from the following fields:

-Sensing/Actuating Technologies and Pervasive Computing

-Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions

-Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)

-Hardware and Software Infrastructures

We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:

Understanding Users

-Identifying and addressing stakeholder needs

-Usability and acceptability

-Barriers and enablers to adoption

-Social implications of pervasive health technology, and social inclusion

-Coverage and delivery of pervasive healthcare services

-Patient and caregiver empowerment

-Diversity: population and condition-specific requirements

-Inclusive research and design: engaging underrepresented populations

-Digital interventions and health behavior change


-Autonomous systems to support independent living

-Clinical applications, validation and evaluation studies

-Telemedicine and mHealth solutions

-Chronic disease and health risk management applications

-Health/Wellbeing promotion and disease prevention

-Home based health and wellness measurement and monitoring

-Continuous vs event-driven monitoring of patients

Full Paper Submission Deadline: January 25, 2017

Notification of Acceptance: March 10, 2017

Camera Ready Deadline: March 20, 2017

Conference Dates: May 23 – 26, 2017


Paper submission:

Pervasive Health 2017 will accept submissions in the following categories:

• Full papers (up to 8 pages including references)

• Short Papers and Posters (up to 4 pages including references)

• Demos (2 pages)

• Workshop proposals (2 pages)

• Doctoral Colloquium (4 pages)

Full papers should describe novel and mature work, and are limited to 8 pages including

references. Short papers should describe more focused and succinct, but mature work.

Pervasive Health will not accept papers that are currently under review, published or

accepted in another venue. All submissions must be anonymised. No identifying information

on Authors or their affiliation should appear on the paper (except for neutral references

to their own work).

Papers should be submitted through EAI \’Confy\’ system at, and have to comply with the ACM format (see

Please check the submission page for all submission details and templates:


Reviewing Process and Publication

Each paper will be blind, peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive Health 2016 program

committee with additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research domains.

Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution

to the field, technical correctness and presentation. The paper should make explicit how

the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been

published or submitted. Authors will be invited to submit their camera-ready papers in

ACM format, to be published in ACM Digital Library. Proceedings are also submitted for

inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI

Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST\’s own

EU Digital Library (EUDL). In the previous years, the acceptance rate of the Pervasive

Health Conference was around 30%.
