AIIM: call for papers on Wearable Systems for Healthcare Applications

Source: Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Journal

Advances in body worn sensors, mobile computing, and ubiquitous networking have lead to a wide range of new applications in areas related to healthcare. This includes intelligent health monitoring, assisted living systems, novel, intelligent information delivery devices for medical personnel, and new assets and process management methods for hospitals. As divers as the above applications are, most of them have one thing in common: reliance on a degree of system intelligence. Such intelligence is needed to adapt the system functionality to the specific situation that the user is in, simplify the user interface, allow relevant data to be extracted from physiological sensors despite motion artifacts ant the use of simple sensors, or provide altogether new types of functionality related to the user’s environment. While the work on wearable systems mostly takes place outside the classical AI community, it strongly relies on methods from AI such as pattern recognition, Bayesian modeling and time series analysis. The aim of this special issue is to bring this new field to the attention of the medical AI community through a collection of outstanding research articles. Relevant topics will include but not be limited to:

1. Novel body worn sensors and sensor systems enabling intelligent health care applications
2. Novel signal processing methods relevant to intelligent wearable applications in healthcare
3. Activity and context recognition methods relevant to healthcare applications
4. Applications of intelligent wearable systems in health care related areas.

The focus of the issue is on high quality, not yet published research work. However outstanding overview articles will also be considered. All submissions will undergo a strict peer review process. In general the acceptance rate of AIIM is around 30%.

Submission and Relevant Dates:

Authors are invited to submit their contributions of about 20 pages (1.5 lines spacing) in pdf format to paul.lukowicz@umit.at . The relevant dates for the special issue are:
1. Oct 31st 2006: submission deadline
2. Feb 1st 2007: notification of acceptance
3. Apr 1st 2007: Final versions due
