                            Third IEEE Workshop on
          Interdisciplinary Research on E-health Services and Systems

                                 IREHSS 2011

                   Affiliated to WoWMoM 2011 June 20-24, 2011
  	                        Lucca, Italy

In the last few years advances in wearable computing, bioengineering,  
sensors networks, mobile devices and wireless communications have paved  
the way
to new definitions of e-health systems, moving from original telemedicine
systems to the integration of existent specialized medical technologies  
pervasive technologies. However, even more work on this area is needed to  
significant results in improving the Quality of Life of patients and  
medical errors and costs. First of all, a strict interaction and  
among medical specialists and ICT experts is necessary to define correct
requirements fore-health systems. Then, in order to effectively design and
deploy reliable E-health systems, a strong cooperation among several  
research areas of ICT is necessary (i.e., bioengineering, wearable sensors,
wireless communications, data fusion and processing, decision support  
and others). This is fundamental to make E-health systems a reality,  
main requirements of reliability and effectiveness both all the involved
perspectives perspective.

IREHSS aims to provide a forum for the interaction of experts belonging to  
different research areas, from wearable computing and ubiquitous  
connectivity to
context-awareness, sensor data fusion, artificial intelligence, expert  
databases, security and privacy. The main objective is to provide a forum  
the interaction of these multiple areas as an important chance to discuss  
understand what aspects have to be considered to provide effective E-health

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting new research related to
E-health, not published or currently under review for another workshop,
conference, or journal.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Wearable and Implantable sensors for healthcare
- Wireless communications in healthcare
- Service and device discovery
- Data fusion and context elaboration
- Privacy and security issues in healthcare
- Middleware for e-health
- Energy Efficiency in health monitoring
- Artificial intelligence and expert systems
- User interface, usability and acceptability of e-health systems
- Healthcare applications for clinicians
- Home monitoring and ambient assisted applications for healthcare
- Power Management and energy-efficient design in Wireless Body Area  
- System architecture and networking protocols for e-health systems
- Medical data analysis, measurements and management
- Modeling and performance evaluation
- Semantic Web in Healthcare
- Standards and frameworks

Paper submission for regular papers must be limited to 6 pages including  
figures, references and appendices. Manuscripts must be formatted in  
with the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines. The IEEE LaTeX and  
Word templates, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE
Computer Society website  
The submission will be entirely managed through EDAS  

In line with the previous edition, there will be NO workshop-only  
Conference registration includes attendance to all WoWMoM associated  
CD proceedings, etc. It is mandatory that at least one author will  
register and
will participate to illustrate the paper during technical sessions of  
The workshop papers will be included in the main WoWMoM proceedings and
published by the IEEE. However, no-shows of accepted papers at the  
workshop will
result in those papers NOT being included in the IEEE Digital Library.

Extended versions of selected papers with special merit will be
considered for a possible fast track publication on Pervasive and Mobile
Computing Journal (Elsevier).

Important Dates:

Papers registration: January 27, 2011
Papers submission deadline: January 31, 2011
