Call for Submissions

 

Call for Late Breaking Research Abstracts & Demonstrations: Closed

Deadlines:

  • Late Breaking Submissions Due: Closed
  • Decision Notification: September 15, 2015
  • Conference Dates: October 14-16, 2015

The committee invites authors to submit late-breaking research for consideration as a demo or poster presentation in the 2015 annual scientific meeting program.   The Program Committee recognizes that the most exciting and rapidly advancing investigations may include results that were not available at the time of the abstract submission deadline. Only a limited number of abstracts will be selected, and we will review entries on a rolling basis. This category is not intended to offer a second deadline for regular abstract submissions.

Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words.

Abstracts should follow the WH2015 Abstract Submission Format.

Abstracts will not be included in the conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

Posters and demos will be presented throughout the conference with a dedicated poster session during the Thursday afternoon reception.

A limited number of accepted submissions will be chosen for rapid-fire oral presentation in addition to poster sessions.

 

 


 

Call for Workshops, Tutorials, and Mini-Symposia – Closed

Closed.

Workshops: Pre-Conference
Workshops will be focused on current and future trends in wireless health and encourages submission of workshops on cross-disciplinary areas of importance, such as power management, usability, human factors, signal processing, pattern recognition, database technologies and informatics, low cost, point of care diagnostic and treatment tools that improve health and/or increase the reach of healthcare globally, and privacy and security related to wireless and mobile health. A workshop may be delivered by experts from any sector in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to registrant. A website will be made available to Workshop registrant to download any material provided by the Workshop organizer(s). Workshop organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Workshop.

Tutorials: Pre-Conference
Tutorials will provide reviews of a specific area related to wireless/mobile health with a perspective on technology development in health, and may also involve registrants through a hands-on experience or demonstrations. A tutorial may be delivered by individuals or a group of leading educators, researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to each registrant. . A website will be made available to Tutorial registrants to download any material provided by the Tutorial organizer(s). The tutorial organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Tutorial.

Mini-symposia: During Conference
Mini-symposia sessions will be dedicated to invited talks and panel discussions from leading researchers covering a specialized topic in multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary areas of wireless health. All submissions to mini-symposia sessions will be required to follow the 1-page paper format. A mini-symposium will be scheduled during the conference under a Conference Theme and Track with a 60 minutes time slot. A typical mini-symposium will consist of 3-4 invited talks, or a combination of invited talks and a panel discussion.

Decision Notification:  July 7, 2015
Conference Dates: October 14-16, 2015

Wireless Health 2015, hosted this year at the National Institutes of Health, invites cutting edge wireless, connected and mobile health research from engineering, computer science, biomedical and health disciplines. The unique mission of the Wireless Health conference is to provide the highest‐quality academic, health and industrial research forum to develop an international community to accelerate the development and adoption of new wireless, mobile and connected technologies for improving health and lowering costs. Central to this mission is the creation of a nurturing research forum that creates an opportunity for trans-disciplinary and cross-sector collaboration. This unique meeting brings together members of the health and technology research communities, device manufacturers, health service providers, and federal policy makers. Wireless Health 2015 will offer an outstanding set of peer‐reviewed papers and abstracts, interactive workshops and tutorials, emerging application demonstrations, and world‐renowned keynote speakers.

Wireless Health encourages submission of studies of prototype development and pilot studies, clinical trials and/or field validations demonstrating the benefits of wireless, mobile and connected technology for diagnosing, treating or maintaining physical and mental health symptoms and conditions. Also encouraged is research on connected devices and systems designed for health promotion and disease prevention. Fundamental advances in power management, usability, human factors, signal processing, pattern recognition, database technologies and informatics, privacy and security related to wireless and mobile health are also encouraged. Finally, Wireless Health encourages submissions of research involving low cost, point of care diagnostic and treatment tools that improve health and/or increase the reach of healthcare globally, including developing countries and underserved regions.

There are two (2) paths to presenting your work at Wireless Health 2015:

1.Full papers (4-8 pages) can be submitted for either oral, poster or demo presentation (or all). Full papers will be published in ACM Conference proceedings.  Full papers must be in the ACM conference format. Posters will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session.

2.Research abstracts (500 words) can be submitted for either oral, poster or demo presentation (or all). The authors of the accepted paper abstracts will be invited to submit a paper for review to the Journal of Translational Behavioral Medicine. Research abstracts must be in the WH2015 Abstract Submission Format. Posters will be presented in a speed-talk format in a dedicated session.

A trans-disciplinary panel will review all contributions. Submissions must contain original material that has neither been previously published nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
