Screen Shot 2013-04-18 at 10.53.16 AMThe Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance is hosting it’s fourth annual Wireless Health conference on November 1-3, 2013 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The mission of the conference is to “provide the highest-quality academic health and industrial research forum to develop an international community that will accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies for improving health and lowering costs.” To support it’s mission, the organizers have issued a Call for Papers, Abstracts and Research demonstrations.

From the call for submissions:

To Submit a Paper for Review:

The committee solicits original contributions in Health Technology, Engineering and Computer Science disciplines with applications in clinical practice and innovative applications of wireless health principles and technologies in clinical and health settings.

 

  • Paper submissions should be 4 – 8 pages in length
  • Papers must be submitted in the ACM conference format
  • All submissions should include author information (names and affiliations) in the document for a single-blind review process (i.e.authors will be known, but reviewers will be anonymous)
  • Full length papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library (ACM DL)
  • Papers can be submitted for either oral or poster presentation (or both). Posters will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session.
  • The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution for publication in a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC).  For further information on the special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC), please visit here.

To Submit an Abstract for Review:

The committee invites Biomedicine, Behavioral and Social Sciences researchers to submit brief abstracts for consideration. Abstracts may highlight pilot studies, clinical trials, and clinical instrument validation studies using wireless and mobile health technologies.  Contributions highlighting unmet clinical needs that can potentially benefit from wireless health technologies are also invited.

 

  • Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words.
  • Abstracts should follow the WH2013 Abstract Submission Format
  • The authors of the accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a paper for review to the Journal of Translational Behavioral Medicine
  • Abstracts will not be included in the conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library
  • Posters will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session

 To Submit a Demonstration for Review:

The committee also invites abstracts from academic and industry researchers describing technical demonstrations that represent advances in fundamental components and/or complete systems serving individuals/communities. Technical demonstrations presented at the conference will include both short oral presentations and a poster session.

 

  • Demonstrations submissions should be no longer than 2 pages
  • Demonstrations must be submitted in the ACM conference format
  • All submissions should include author information (names and affiliations) in the document for a single-blind review process (i.e.authors will be known, but reviewers will be anonymous)
  • Demonstrations will be included in the conference proceedings and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library (ACM DL)
  • Demonstrations will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session and given space in the demonstration hall

The submission deadline is Friday, April 26, 2013. ALL submissions must be registered and submitted electronically through EDAS at https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=14795Please contact Julien Penders at julien.penders@imec-nl.nl or Donna Spruijt-Metz at dmetz@usc.edu with any questions.
