Cf: 1st EAI International Conference on Wearables in Heathcare, NEW DEADLINE

1st EAI International Conference on Wearables in Heathcare
June 14-15, 2016 Budapest, Hungary

co-located with the eHealth360 summit (

A variety of relevant health and fitness parameters are now being 
captured via an ecosystem of consumer-oriented wearable self-tracking 
devices, smartphone apps and related services. Techniques from 
information science, sociology, psychology, statistics, machine learning 
and data mining are applied to analyze collected data. These techniques 
provide new opportunities to enrich understanding of individual and 
population health. Self-tracking data can provide better measures of 
everyday behavior and lifestyle and can complement more traditional 
clinical data collection, towards a comprehensive picture of health.
HealthWear'16 will bring together researchers, developers, and industry 
professionals from both Healthcare and Quantified Self communities to 
discuss key issues, opportunities and obstacles for personal health data 
research. These include challenges of capturing, summarizing, presenting 
and retrieving relevant information from heterogeneous sources to 
support a new vision of pervasive personal healthcare.

through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest 
scientific libraries. Proceedings will be submitted for indexing by 
Google Scholar, ISI, EICompendex, Scopus and many more.
Accepted papers after presentation and extension may be invited to be 
published in either ACM/Springer Mobile Networks & Applications or 
Journal of Internet Technology. Both of the journals are SCI/SCIE indexed.

* Call for tutorials:
The conference calls for tutorials focusing on practical topics related 
to wearables and healthcare. HealthWear'16 solicits proposals for 
half-day tutorials that present fundamentals about a frontier topic as 
well as recent advances in fields mentioned above. It should be 
interesting for both students and senior researchers. Of particular 
interest are topics focusing on the practical challenges of the 
Quantified Seld (QS), such as visualization of QS data, search in this 
special kind of multi modal data, etc.
