                           Call for papers
                        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,
wireless 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 with pervasive technologies. However,
even more work on this area is needed to obtain significant results in
improving the Quality of Life of patients and reducing medical errors
and costs. First of all, a strict interaction and cooperation among
medical specialists and ICT experts is necessary to define correct
requirements for e-Health systems. Then, in order to effectively
design and deploy reliable e-Health systems, a strong cooperation
among several diverse research areas of ICT is necessary (i.e.,
bioengineering, wearable sensors, wireless communications, data fusion
and processing, decision support systems and others). This is
fundamental to make e-Health systems a reality, satisfying main
requirements of reliability and effectiveness.

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

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 text, figures, references and appendices. Manuscripts must
be formatted in accordance with the IEEE Computer Society author
guidelines. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft 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
registration. Conference registration includes attendance to all
WoWMoM associated workshops, CD proceedings, etc. It is mandatory that
at least one author will register and will participate to illustrate
the paper during technical sessions of workshops. 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
