Computing Technologies and Business Strategies for u-Healthcare (CBuH2010)

In Conjunction with SAINT2010
Seoul, Korea
July 19 - 23, 2010

*** Extended Submission Deadline: March 10, 2010. ***



Ubiquitous healthcare (u-healthcare) refers to the disposition of any
type of health services that enable people to live independently
longer through the early detection and prevention of chronic disease
and disabilities. It attracts much interest from the research
community over the past decade but a lot of research issues still
remain unsolved such as infrastructure building, data analysis,
healthcare service providing.

Computer vision, emplaced wireless sensor networks, and body networks
are emerging technologies that promise to significantly enhance health
care where we can collect sensory data, identify individuals' activities
of daily living, and act for improved daily health care as
well as real-time reaction to medical emergencies. These are
facilitated only with a proper deployment of infrastructure which can
efficiently and securely manage and share patients' clinical
information among care-givers. Also, because a patient's individual
situation involves a number of both physiological and environmental
data, interpretation of such large amounts of heterogeneous data is an
important but challenging prerequisite. Another research issue is that
current u-healthcare services are limited and simple like alarm
generation whereas a realistic healthcare system should be real-time,
intelligent, and proactive.

Overall, projected benefits of such a system include greater
independence for the elderly, lower medical costs through reduction in
hospital and emergency room visits, improved health, and via
longitudinal studies, increased understanding of the causes of
diseases and the efficacy of their treatment. However, the real
u-healthcare business would not become useful without deep
consideration of patient, care-giver, and insurance company
requirements, and conciliation of various problems that are now
challenging law, act, and stakeholders. Therefore, an appropriate and
thorough business model for u-Healthcare is important and needs to be
well established.

This workshop touches both technological aspects such as
infrastructure design, data analysis and fusion, decision support
algorithms, as well as financing aspects for u-healthcare. It aims to
gather together care-givers, IT experts, industry, and national
authorities contributing towards the development and application of
u-healthcare system.


We encourage submissions that consider, but are not limited to:

- Data fusion in u-healthcare environments
- Decision support algorithms for sensor analysis
- Sensor networks for u-healthcare
- Human computer interaction
- Health interfaces, information visualization and feedback
- Coverage and delivery of u-healthcare services
- Usability and acceptability issues
- Activity recognition and fall detection
- Wearable, ambient, and home based health and wellness
measurement and monitoring technologies
- Health promotion and disease prevention
- Business cases and cost issues
- Insurance payments and cost aspects
- Security and privacy in u-healthcare
- Electronic citizen-managed health records
- Standards and interoperability in u-healthcare


Workshop papers should be within 4 pages, no extra page is allowed.
The Proceedings of the Symposium and the Workshops will be published,
in separated volumes, by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Please
follow the instruction on the web below where authors can find Page
Form and appropriate pointers for LaTeX Macros. Please visit SAINT
2010 Website ( and
select `Information for Authors'.


Papers should be submitted on-line no later than March 10, 2010 (extended).
Papers should be sent to the Organizers and Program Committee of the
Workshop at sylee[atmark] After a review process by
Organizers and Program Committee of the Workshop, authors of accepted
papers will be requested to send its final manuscript to IEEE-CS press
no later than April 30, 2010. So, authors are kindly requested to
submit papers as early as possible to facilitate a review process.


Workshop Paper Submission (Extended): March 10 2010
Workshop Paper Notification: March 31, 2010
Workshop Final Manuscript: April 30, 2010
Author registration due: TBD
Workshop: July 19 - 23, 2010 (exact date is TBD)


It is the IEEE policy that accepted papers can be published only when
IEEE recognizes that at least ONE author has completed FULL
registration for SAINT Conference. So, authors will be requested to
register along with the final manuscript. SAINT Conference
Registration fees include a copy of the Conference proceedings, a copy
of the Workshop proceedings, and admission to the Conference and
Workshop sessions.


The date and length (a full or half day) of the Workshop will be
decided by SAINT2010 Organizing Committee taking account of the number
of submitted papers, and be announced on the SAINT2010 web. Please
also note that, according to the SAINT2010 Organizing Committee, the
Workshop is subject to cancellation if the number of submitted papers
is not sufficient.
