SPECIAL ISSUE ON SUPPORTING E-HEALTH WITH MOBILE COMPUTING AND AMBIENT INTELLIGENCE
from Dolores' List of CFPs
SUBMISSION DUE DATE: March 1, 2010
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HANDHELD COMPUTING RESEARCH (IJHCR)
Guest Editors: Michele Amoretti, Francesco Zanichelli, University of Parma, Italy
The concept of e-Health broadly refers to a range of services that are
at the edge of healthcare and information technology. One prominent goal
of e-Health is to enable ubiquitous, continuous and personalized access
to healthcare services by patients, clinicians and all other actors.
In this context, e-Health can take advantage of with Mobile Computing,
i.e. the ability to use information and communication technology while moving,
and Ambient Intelligence (AmI), which refers to digital environments that
proactively support people in their daily lives. It is envisioned that future
e-Health infrastructures will be fully distributed and pervasive, while
supporting access to multiple services and enriched information, with
multimodal interaction, regardless of user's location and devices.
OBJECTIVE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original unpublished work
related to the design, development, and validation of integrated mobile/AmI
platforms and applications supporting e-Health.
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Using mobile devices for healthcare information storage, update, and transmission
* e-Health service sharing on mobile platforms
* Continuous and multi-parametric monitoring of metabolic status using wearable devices
* Synchronization between back-end sources and applications on mobile devices
* Intelligent mobile multimedia services
* Natural and multimodal interaction styles and user interfaces
* Indoor/outdoor user localization
* Assistive Devices for temporal and spatial orientation
* Design and evaluation of patient and ambient-related sensors
* Activity recognition and fall detection
* Usability and acceptability issues
* Semantic profiles of users, devices and services
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special
theme issue on SUPPORTING E-HEALTH WITH MOBILE COMPUTING AND AMBIENT INTELLIGENCE
on or before March 1, 2010. All submissions must be original and may not be
under review by another publication.
INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL'S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at
All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind, peer review basis.
