Demos will showcase the latest developments and prototypes related to the topics of interest of the conference. We seek proposals for demonstrations of pervasive technologies across the full environment of healthcare, starting from clinical applications to wearable, ambient, and home-based health monitoring technologies up to assistive devices and educational or motivational aids. We are also interested to demo innovative methodological design research material used in the process to generate insights and ideate healthcare innovations, e.g. experience sampling technologies, co-design technological toolkits. The expected demo submissions should describe the technical details of the demo alongside its contribution to the pervasive healthcare domain.
Demos provide authors an opportunity to demonstrate or present their work, including research, service, prototype or product addressing one or more of the suggested topics as presented in the general call for participation. A successful submission communicates ideas and concepts in a powerful way that a regular presentation cannot. All accepted submissions are showcased during the conference, where the presenters have the ability to interact with the conference attendees, and showcase their work and technologies. We therefore encourage making your demonstration visually or otherwise appealing and presenting it in an innovative way.
In order to be considered for on-site demonstration at PervasiveHealth 2019, a PDF containing an abstract describing the demo should be submitted via Confy, in accordance with ACM guidelines (see Author’s Kit section) and a 2000 character limit. Figures and tables may be included, not subject to the character limit.
Submission deadline: March 4th, 2019
Demo submissions should describe the technology that will be showcased as well as the reasoning behind it. You may find the full list of topics in the Topics section below.
We welcome contributions from the following fields:
Accepted and registered Demos will be published by EAI with Open Access separately from the conference proceedings, and showcased in EUDL – European Union Digital Library, and EAI360 – EAI’s Innovation Workbench.
Submissions will be evaluated and selected based on their quality, originality, and significance to the areas of interest for PervasiveHealth 2019. Submissions outside of the conference’s Scope should justify their relevance to the main area of interest.
Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process, and demos will be selected through a single-blind review process and authors name and affiliation must be on the paper. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference. Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation, as well as the potential to include participation by conference attendees. The submission should make explicit how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been published or submitted.
Accepted Demos will be showcased at the venue open to the conference participants. Authors will need to be available for installation, and for facilitating interaction with their work at scheduled times during the conference at their designated Demo table. Authors are expected to bring physical equipment for a prototype demonstration.
At least one author of an accepted Demo must register and present the demo at the conference venue. Specific requirements will be arranged with presenters of accepted demos, however, demos should be self-supporting as the organizers will only be able to provide space, electricity and an internet connection.
EAI360 – EAI’s Innovation Workbench is a free tool that will teach you how to transform your research project into a business idea. Take your project through the Innovation Workbench and learn about team building, market research, IP protection, formulating a business plan, and creating a demo that will turn heads.
