CALL FOR SHORT /  POSITION PAPERS  (4 pages) !! Submission Deadline March 14 2016

WORK IN PROGRESS PAPERS: Submission deadline March 31 2016

Overview :

A variety of relevant health and fitness parameters are now being captured via an ecosystem of consumer-oriented wearable self-tracking devices, smartphone apps and related services. Techniques from information science, sociology, psychology, statistics, machine learning and data mining are applied to analyze collected data. These techniques provide new opportunities to enrich understanding of individual and population health. Self-tracking data can provide better measures of everyday behavior and lifestyle and can complement more traditional clinical data collection, towards a comprehensive picture of health. HealthWear'16 will bring together researchers, developers, and industry professionals from both Healthcare and Quantified Self communities to discuss key issues, opportunities and obstacles for personal health data research. These include challenges of capturing, summarizing, presenting and retrieving relevant information from heterogeneous sources to support a new vision of pervasive personal healthcare.

Short/Position  Papers: We encourage submissions of 4-page position papers and short papers that relate to any aspect of personal health data research.

WORK IN PROGRESS (WIP)  Papers can be submitted until March 31st  2016

Submissions from students, developers, educators, and researchers in various domains are welcome.
