Wireless Health 2011

Call for Papers :: Submission Deadline April 15, 2011

Download the Call for Papers

The organizing committee invites submission of papers for peer review that have the potential for substantive impact on the field of Wireless Health.
There will be two tracks featuring papers with highly innovative engineering solutions for Wireless Health and papers with a focus on applications of Wireless Health in clinical settings. Papers should be of interest to both technology and medical domain experts. Papers should clearly articulate the knowledge contributions in both of these fields, requiring treatment of both technology and medical issues. However, it is recommended that papers be organized such that the overall structure (introduction, methodology, results, contributions, etc.) be comprehensible by the diverse Wireless Health audience and that technical details be confined to specific sections so that all readers are able to appreciate the overall contributions of the paper.
This year, the Wireless Health features a new track called Vanguard. Vanguard papers are expected to present less developed, but highly innovative ideas. Vanguard papers are shorter in length with less extensive results, yet they should present high impact Wireless Health ideas targeting fundamental issues in engineering and medical sciences.

Paper topics include but are not limited to:

Wireless Health Theory, Systems, and Technology

  • Information systems including architectures, integrating sensing, signal processing, sensor data fusion, and related technologies
  • Innovative event/resource aware technologies, including compressive sensing
  • Novel communication systems, including in-vivo, on-body, near-body networks
  • System design innovations and optimizations in system performance, energy, operating lifetime, reliability, sensing integrity, privacy, and security
  • Wearable system architectures and hardware systems
  • Enterprise system and database technology in medical informatics
  • Wireless Health individual and community guidance technology and systems
  • Wireless Health end-to-end quality of service
  • Energy scavenging technologies
  • Wireless Health Clinical Applications

  • Medical science driven applications based on personal monitoring and guidance in the areas of health promotion, disease detection and management, geriatric and rehabilitative care, pharmaceutical management, etc.
  • Assistive technologies for geriatric subjects, the disabled, and for rehabilitation
  • Wireless Health applications for consumer applications and athletics
  • Protecting the health of first responders and service personnel

  • Important Dates

    Full and Vanguard Papers Due: April 15, 2011
    Acceptance Notification: July 1, 2011

    The Conference Proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Submitted papers should be no longer than 10 pages in the ACM conference format.  Vanguard papers are limited to 2 pages (please visit the “How to Submit” page for more information on formatting.) Papers must contain original material that has neither been previously published nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
