[Dbworld] CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS

CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS
Proposal Submission Deadline: December 30, 2014
M-Health Innovations for Patient-Centered Care

A book edited by
Dr. Anastasius Moumtzoglou (Hellenic Society for Quality & Safety in Healthcare and P. & A. Kyriakou
Children's Hospital, Greece)

To be published by IGI Global: http://bit.ly/1zszORX 

For release in the Advances in Healthcare Information Systems and Administration (AHISA) Book Series 

Series Editor: Anastasius Moumtzoglou (Hellenic Society for Quality & Safety in Healthcare and P. & A.
Kyriakou Children's Hospital, Greece) and Anastasia N. Kastania (Athens University of Economics and
Business, Greece) 
ISSN: 2328-1243

Propose a chapter for this book

The Advances in Healthcare Information Systems and Administration (AHISA) Book Series aims to
provide a channel for international researchers to progress the field of study on technology and its
implications on healthcare and health information systems. With the growing focus on healthcare and the
importance of enhancing this industry to tend to the expanding population, the book series seeks to
accelerate the awareness of technological advancements of health information systems and expand
awareness and implementation.

Introduction
M-Health is increasingly being used in the health care field since its use is becoming a cost-effective
method of identifying and monitoring health issues, as well as guiding the formulation of health
policies. Programs to support the professional development of people in the health field, using mHealth
technology, are becoming readily available. mHealth also provides health professionals with access to
patient data as well as access to various information sources, both of which provide valuable assistance
in the diagnosis and formulation of treatment. Individuals can use mHealth to access resource materials
on health issues. Patients can self-monitor and transmit information to their health care provider
making mHealth particularly important to people living in remote areas or those who are physically impaired.

While the timely emergence of mHealth will not resolve all problems, it offers unique opportunities to
reduce cost, increase efficiencies, and improve the quality and access to care. Home-based monitoring
will help hospitals track patient recovery and compliance, thereby minimizing costly episodes of
re-admission. Coordination between departments and providers will reduce wasteful spending and
improve quality of care. Moreover, with rapid consumer adoption of smartphones, physicians can now
perform two-way videoconferencing. Patients and physicians will have access to medical records and
vital signs. Wireless technology will also allow physicians to serve more patients despite
geographical limitations.

In this context, the book will explore the emergence of mHealth in the healthcare setting. It will focus on
the broad range of technologies available, tackle the effects of mHealth on the industry and
stakeholders, explore the infrastructure and architecture needed to support these technologies,
discuss the evolvement of various stakeholders and the impact of mHealth on existing technology, and
analyze the transformation of the business model. Looking forward, it will demistify the impact of
consumer-centric healthcare, and how it might reshape access, quality and treatment.

Objective of the Book
The book will provide an overview of mHealth technologies that affect quality in healthcare. The proposed
book intends to provide a compendium of terms, definitions and explanations of concepts, processes and
acronyms. Additionally, it will present chapters (each chapter consisting of 7,000-10,000 words)
authored by leading experts offering an in-depth description of key terms and concepts related to the
Interaction of mHealth and quality in healthcare.

Target Audience
This book intends to:

* support students understanding of the effect of mHealth technologies on quality in healthcare 
* help healthcare professionals better understand the needs of their patients 
* act as an assistant for patients to derive more benefits from their healthcare 
* encourage e-health systems designers and managers to ground everyday practice on mHealth technologies 

The prospective audience includes undergraduate and extended degree programs students, graduate
students of health care quality and health services management, executive education and continuing
education, health care managers, and health professionals.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Potential of mHealth 
* Market potential of mHealth 
* Business modeling for mHealth 
* Data Protection and Security of data in mHealth 
* Big Data and mHealth 
* Mobile Telemedicine

Introduction

For release in the Advances in Information Security, Privacy, and Ethics (AISPE) Book Series.

ISSN: 1948-9730

The Advances in Information Security, Privacy, & Ethics (AISPE) Book Series provides cutting-edge
research on the protection and misuse of information and technology across various industries and
settings. Comprised of scholarly research on topics such as identity management, cryptography, system
security, authentication, and data protection, this book series is ideal for reference by IT
professionals, academicians, and upper-level students.

* * *

Access control has been an important research area for a long time. In the past, access control list and
access matrix were used, but, currently, the NIST standard RBAC model is the most common trend. Other
latest emerging trends are access control for collaborative systems, like social networks, and access
control for big data. On one side, due to the advancement of collaborative technologies, the need for
information sharing is increasing in collaborative projects. Excess information sharing in
collaborative and social networks can lead to breaches of privacy that requires advanced techniques in
information security and privacy. Many critical services, for example health care, typically gather
this information for genuine needs; however, given the co-dependency of the Internet and information
systems, sensitive data is under the radar of theft and corruption. On the other side, due to the
complexity, dynamism and large size of data, manageability is becoming an issue. In t!
 his regard, one of the main hurdles for the future of information technology is the manageability and
security issue. This issue motivates the need for intelligent or autonomic computing that will help the
IT professional to focus on high value tasks rather than performing security and privacy manually,
resulting in a lower cost, reduction of labor and increased efficiency.

Objective
Access control, its management and other relevant issues are addressed separately in literature, for
example: information and its access management, authentication, authorization, privacy-aware
access control, access control applications, and scenarios like social network and big data. The
objective of this handbook is to collect all topics relevant to access control, its management, and
applications in one book. It will serve as a repository that contains all relevant research issues and
will provide solutions, technologies, and current trends for researchers and organizations. Relevant
researchers can find problems, and their solutions and vendors can upgrade their products to cope with
new research issues and challenges.

Target Audience
This publication on access control and management will provide an open yet focused podium for researchers
and practitioners from computer science, and other fields that are interacting with computer science in
the information access and management area (such as statistics, health care informatics, social
networks, big data, and law) to get latest trends in access control, privacy-aware access, and
information management research. Also, research students can use it to conduct research and produce
innovative ideas. Information systems and database vendors can incorporate the research frameworks in
the existing products to make them manageable, efficient and secure. Finally, organizations that are
using specific information systems can use the different studies to solve their own related problems.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Access control
    Identity and access management
    Discretionary access control
    Mandatory access control
    Role-based access control
    Access control for collaborative systems

[Dbworld] CFP: In Search of a New Alignment in Service Research

*** IEEE Transactions on Services Computing ***  
*********** INFORMS Service Science ***********


In Search of a New Alignment in Service Research

An Unprecedented, Dual-Journal Call For Papers
================================================

It is high time for engineering and business scholars to join forces to advance service research. The
editors of two of the top journals in the service area, one from IEEEfs services computing community and
one from INFORMSf service science community, invite you to break out of your disciplinary comfort
zone. Parallel special issues have been commissioned to intentionally challenge and disrupt the status
quo. This dual special issue is intended to reconcile existing multi-pronged orientations and
approaches to service research.

Trans-disciplinary service research will leapfrog the current landscape to improve services computing
formalisms while concomitantly designing and delivering the highest quality business service systems
that can profitably delight customers and clients. In many areas, modern research advances have
benefited from multiple perspectives. Trans-disciplinary research means reaching out to scholars
from other backgrounds. It means that vocabulary, research methods and historical foundations need to
be shared, taught, challenged and reconciled. Itfs going to be hard work. It will take time. But itfs
what is needed. This dual-journal call-for-papers is intended to catalyze trans-disciplinary and
risk-taking research, and the review policies and procedures for both special issues will be tuned to
this end.

What is missing has been a research agenda to reconcile business service systems and systems of systems
ideals with services computingfs formal methods, standards, best practices and repeatable
processes. New research is essential to address what has become an important inflection point: the
business services and services computing research agendas need to be viewed from a common, global,
societal lens. At stake is the continued viability of both research streams.

Some science and engineering scholars view business services research as a soft discipline, but there is
significant respect for formal business process and workflow methods that can deliver model-driven
development. Business researchers often view the engineering and computer science perspectives as
remiss in addressing the essential and dynamic elements of customer co-production, B2B contracting and
pricing, but there is significant respect for services computingfs role in distributing,
cost-effective scaling and personalization of computing service capability. Both areas are in
transition, given the increasing value of big data methods and associated possibilities. Yes, there
will be dueling methodologies, ranging from empirical to execution benchmarks to proof, and there will
be dueling problems, ranging from NP-Complete to novel business strategy frameworks. Potential
authors will need to leave their comfort zones behind and work together across disciplinary lines.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Big Data Analytics and Algorithms
- Service-Centric Business Models
- Service Modeling and Implementation
- Service Delivery, Deployment and Maintenance Service

In recent years, there has been exponential growth in both the development and use of mobile applications,
thus presenting new challenges to software engineering. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing, with
the addition of diverse capabilities such as GPS, sensors, and touch or pen input modes.  When running on
mobile platforms, modern applications need to scale on demand according to the hardware abilities.
During development, security and authorization processes for data flows are very important. However,
the popularity of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in schools, universities and the workplace
bring new possibilities of security data leaks. Developing robust mobile applications therefore
requires advanced practices and tools. Some of these are architecture techniques that relate
  to platform complexity; improved refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic languages;
developing applications in multiple languages; and testing and verification techniques f!
 or applications that run on different devices.

We solicit contributions related to mobile software engineering. Topics include, but are not limited to: 
* Development environments and tools
* Testing, maintenance, verification and evolution
* Patterns, frameworks, and product lines
* Refactoring, restructuring, and renovation

* Empirical studies and metrics
* User experience and new input devices
* Hybrid versus native applications
* Agile or model-driven development
* Application and system security
* Cloud support and scalability
* Static and dynamic analysis
* Debugging techniques and tools
* Programming languages
* Teaching of programming and software engineering
* The mobile role in the context of Internet of Things 
* Mobile apps connected to wearable devices

WORKSHOP AIMS AND SCOPE
-----------------------

Recently, research attention is being progressively shifting from data organization and
representation to linkage and composition of the huge amount of data available on the Web. In this
context, the Web has evolved from a global information space of linked documents to a global database,
where resources are identified (by means of URIs), semantically described (by means of RDF) and
connected through RDF links. Linked Data have been made a reality by the Semantic Web technology stack, by
the evolution of Web 2.0 and Social Web solutions and by the availability of more and more linked data
sources on the Web. The great availability of Linked Data raises data management issues, that must be
faced in a dynamic, highly distributed and heterogeneous environment such as the Web. Linked Data can 
 be published, maintained, queried and rapidly combined to build new, value-added applications that fit
domain-specific goals.

The Fifth International Workshop on Linked Web Data Management (LWDM) aims to stimulate participants to
discuss about data management issues related to the Linked Data and the relationships with other
Semantic Web technologies, proposing new models, languages and applications that exploit the Web as a
huge, interlinked, dynamic repository of linked resources.
