AISB convention 2017

  In the run up to AISB2017 convention, I've asked Joanna Bryson, from the organising team, to answer few questions about the convention and what comes with it. Mohammad Majid al-Rifaie (https://twitter.com/mohmaj) Tu...

CFP: Ambient Technologies for Diagnosing and Monitoring Chronic Patients (ATDMCP)

Ambient Technologies for Diagnosing and Monitoring Chronic Patients (ATDMCP)   
*     January 29th 2008, Tampere, Finland                                                                  *

A workshop at Second International Conference on Pervasive Healthcare 2008 organised by Bart Jansen from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium
 
The ATDMCP workshop will focus on innovative ambient technologies for diagnosing and monitoring chronic patients and elderly. Those technologies can focus on the hospital, the nursing home or the home environment. ATDMCP studies ambient technologies from three different but complementary perspectives: the engineering point of view (including the development of novel sensory technologies), the computer scientist perspective (including programming languages for ambient programming) and the medical perspective (focusing on the interpretation of the acquired signals).
 
Topics include, but are not limited to:
 
* Diagnosis at home
* Technology for monitoring chronic patients (COPD, CVD, diabetes, etc.)
* new sensor modalities for monitoring chronic patients
* programming techniques for ambient technologies
* data analysis in sensor networks
* Influence of ambient technology on medical care
* medical protocols and ambient technologies
* diagnosis and monitoring practices of chronic patients
* user acceptance
* ethical issues of continuous monitoring
...
 
Authors are requested to submit either full papers (10 pages) or short papers (4 pages) through the workshop's website by September 14th 2007. Please refer to the workshop website for further details.
 
Important dates:
 
* September 14, 2007 * Paper submission
* November 2, 2007 * Notification of acceptance
* November 16, 2007 * Camera-ready submissions
* January 29, 2008 * Conference and special sessions
