2nd Call for Papers (brief descriptions due)

IEEE IC Special Issue: Web Technology and Architecture for Personal
Health Records (July/August 2011)
Final submissions due 1 November 2010
Please email the guest editors a brief description of the article you
plan to submit by 15 October 2010

Guest Editors: Chimezie Ogbuji, Karthik Gomadam (karthik@knoesis.org),
and Charles Petrie (petrie@stanford.edu).

The healthcare industry is well positioned to take advantage of
contemporary Web-based architecture to address the technological
challenges of personal health record (PHR) systems, many of which
require simultaneous advances in engineering, informatics, and
network-based applications. Of particular interest are the PHR systems
that capture healthcare data entered by individuals.

Many of the consortia standards that comprise web-based technology are
related to the Architecture of the World Wide Web and of the Semantic

This special issue seeks original articles describing development,
relevant trends, and challenges in incorporating contemporary
Web-based technology for the primary functions of PHR systems. The
main functional categories of interest are information collection,
sharing, exchange, and management.

Appropriate topics of interest include
•    Web-based, structured data collection in PHR systems;
•    implementations of access-control policies and healthcare data sharing;
•    distributed, identity-based authentication methods;
•    digital signature and encryption techniques;
•    Web portal architecture’s general components and capabilities as
the basis for a PHR system;
•    architectural paradigms regarding connectivity to other healthcare
information producers and consumers;
•    data models for PHR systems;
•    distributed data subscription and publishing protocols;
•    successful Web-based applications for chronic disease and medication
•    health applications for PHR systems on mobile devices;
•    privacy and security issues;
•    HIPAA and its implications for adopting cloud computing for PHR
applications; and
•    logic-based or concept-based knowledge representation for PHR
interoperability and applications


All submissions must be original manuscripts of fewer than 5,000
words, focused on Internet technologies and implementations. All
manuscripts are subject to peer review on both technical merit and
relevance to IC’s international readership — primarily system and
software design engineers. We do not accept white papers, and we
discourage strictly theoretical or mathematical papers.

To submit a manuscript, please log on to Manuscript Central
(https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cs-ieee) to create or access an
account, which you can use to log on to IC‘s Author Center and upload
your submission.
