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

                                IREHSS 2010

                               June 14, 2010
                            Montreal, QC Canada



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 fore-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 both all the 
involved perspectives perspective.

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 Networks
- 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. They should be organized in 
IEEE proceedings format, with a font size of at least 10pt. Papers 
exceeding the maximum length of 6 pages will be automatically rejected.  
The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related 
information, can be found at the IEEE Computer Society website http://
www.computer.org/portal/site/cscps/index.jsp . The submission will be 
entirely managed through EDAS (http://edas.info/N8548).

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. Moreover, each workshop 
paper will need to have at least one author register at the FULL 
conference rate. 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). In addition, a possible free publication in 
the Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation (JNER, http://
jneuroengrehab.com ) could be available in case of a selection of 
special merit papers pertaining to the subject.

Important Dates:
Papers registration EXTENDED : March 3, 2010
Papers submission EXTENDED deadline: March 6, 2010
Acceptance Notification:	April 5, 2010
Camera Ready deadline:	April 20, 2010.
