Workshop on Personalisation for e-Health to be held in conjunction with UM 2005 Edinburgh, UK, July 2005 http://www.csc.liv.ac.uk/%7Efloriana/UM05-eHealth/ CALL FOR PAPERS TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION --------------------- The past years have witnessed unprecedented levels of investment in the e-Health sector, both in terms of research effort, and in terms of funding, as well as a great public interest. e-Health can be broadly defined as the application of IT (especially Internet technologies) to improve the access, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of any processes (clinical and business alike) related to health care. In the e-Health vision, intelligent systems would, for example, enable: * citizens to take more control of their well-being, by accessing personalised and qualified health information, both medical and pedagogical, and accessing appropriate medical care from their homes; * health professionals to manage their activity more efficiently, by receiving relevant and timely updates; and * teams of health professionals to work together more effectively, coordinating their activities, sharing their knowledge about the patients they are collectively taking care of, and ensuring the best coordinated care is provided. In this workshop, we will focus on the many aspects of personalisation for health delivery, related to e-Health environments. A non exhaustive list of issues of interest is: - adaptive and personalised e-Health information systems (including adaptive content, search and interface) - tailored health education and advice (written and online) - promoting trust and compliance to health advice - personalised assistance, including for special citizens (e.g. disabled, elderly) - personalisation in chronic care (e.g. asthma or diabetes management) as opposed to acute care (e.g. ICU setting) - privacy issues for health related user models - personalisation based both on biometric or genomic factors and clinical information - tailored decision support (for patients and practitioners) - supporting the implementation of guidelines and protocols in healthcare models of user learning, knowledge, attitude and behaviour change (including compliance) - patient/citizen models - business models (personalisation to various stakeholders) - ontologies for user models for tailored health care delivery - methods for evaluating user satisfaction with ehealth systems (weblog analysis, tracking users, quantitative and qualitative methods) The workshop welcomes contributions from diverse perspectives, such as knowledge engineering, multi agent systems, natural language processing, cognitive modelling, human factors, mobile computing, as well as public health and medical informatics. Contributions may describe applications, approaches, and evaluation studies. Special attention will be dedicated to system demonstrations: submissions should be accompanied by short written reports. SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: ------------------------ The workshop encourages submissions in three categories: - Long papers, describing mature research (up to 6000 words) - Short papers, describing work in progress (up to 3000 words) - Demonstrations of an implemented system: submission should be accompanied by written reports (up to 3000 words). Authors should contact the organisers to ensure suitable equipment is available. Electronic submissions should be received by the workshop chair (at floriana_(on)_csc.liv.ac.uk) no later than 7th March 2005. All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, significance, soundness and clarity. Three referees will review each submission.
