Call for Papers

October 25-27, 2016 | The National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland

IEEE Wireless Health 2016, hosted again this year at the National Institutes of Health, invites cutting edge wireless, connected and mobile health research from engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, data analytics, biomedical and health disciplines. The unique mission of the IEEE Wireless Health conference is to develop an international community to accelerate the development and adoption of new wireless, mobile and connected technologies designed to improve the quality and accessibility of health care interventions and promote public health. Central to this mission is the creation of the highest‐quality academic, health and industrial research forum to nurture trans-disciplinary and cross-sector collaboration. This meeting brings together members of the health and technology research communities, device manufacturers, health service providers, and policy makers. IEEE Wireless Health 2016 will offer an outstanding set of peer‐reviewed papers and abstracts, interactive workshops and tutorials, emerging application demonstrations, and world‐renowned keynote speakers.

IEEE 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, IEEE 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 IEEE Wireless Health 2016:

  1. Full papers (4-8 pages) can be submitted for either oral, poster or demo presentation (or all). Full papers will be published in IEEE Conference proceedings.  Full papers must be in the IEEE 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 WH2016 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.
