Call for Papers
3rd International Workshop on Intelligent Environments Supporting Healthcare and Well-being (WISHWell’11)
July 25th-26th, 2011
Nottingham, UK

BACKGROUND AND GOALS:

The workshop will bring together researchers from both industry and academia from the various disciplines to contribute to the 3rd year of the International Workshop on Intelligent Environments Supporting Healthcare and Well-Being (WISHWell 2011). Healthcare environments (within the hospital and the home) are extremely complex and challenging to manage from an IT and IS perspective, as they are required to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various circumstances with a number of resource constraints. Pervasive healthcare technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by integrating them within existing health care services. It is essential that intelligent pervasive healthcare solutions are developed and correctly integrated to assist health care professionals in delivering high levels of patient care. It is equally important that these pervasive solutions are used to empower patients and relatives for self-care and management of their health to provide seamless access for health care services. Areas of interest: include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Health monitoring from the home, office
  • Mobile health monitoring
  • Next generation telehealth/telecare
  • Systems to encourage well-being and healthy lifesytles
  • Ambient assisted living
  • Case Studies
  • Decision Support Systems (DSS) within healthcare
  • Support for independent living
  • Support for rehabilitation
  • Environments supporting carers
  • Pervasive Technologies
  • Pervasive data management architectures

This event will be co-located with the 7th International Conference on Intelligent Environments.
