Submission Deadline Extended - CALL FOR WORKSHOPS - IEEE HEALTHCOM 2016

My apologies if you receive multiple copies of this call for papers (CFP)

18th IEEE International Conference on e-Health Networking, Application & Services (IEEE HEALTHCOM 2016)
14th – 17th September 2016
Munich, Germany


The IEEE Communications Society sponsored HEALTHCOM 2016 aims at bringing together interested parties
from around the world working in the health care field to exchange ideas, to discuss innovative and
emerging solutions, and to develop collaborations. eHealth is defined as the cost-effective and secure
use of information and communications technologies in support of health and the related fields,
including health-care related services, surveillance, literature, education, knowledge, and
research, both at the local site and at a distance. It will make personalized medicine possible and
affordable in the near future. The adoption of eHealth technologies in medical fields creates huge
opportunities yet lots of challenges still need to be resolved to build reliable,  secure, and efficient
networks or platforms with great flexibility.

Prospective workshop organizers are cordially invited to submit their proposals related to the e-Health area.

The workshop language is English. Workshops may cover current trends and future technologies,
distinguished research topics, industrial challenges or socio-economic processes which proposers
might wish to discuss or investigate in more depth in a structured manner over a 180 minutes period. For
this purpose proposers should come up with a 1-3 page layout of the workshop including detailed

CFP: IEEE COMPSAC UCDAS 2016: 3rd International Workshop on User Centered Design and Adaptive Systems

The IEEE 3rd International Workshop on User-Centered Design and Adaptive
Systems, colocated with COMPSAC 2016 (www.compsac.org) will take place in
Atlanta, Georgia, USA from June 10 - 14, 2016.

Aim of the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to introduce the combination of different
disciplines to build adaptive systems and to discuss the approach and state
of the art advances in research and development of the construction of
user-centered adaptive systems. UCDAS is targeted to researchers from
different disciplines in academia and industry, as well as practitioners
who share interests in adaptive systems design and development. The focus
will be on the processes and methodologies combining techniques from these
disciplines and the experiences drawn from adaptive system design practice,
as well as on emergent topics.

A user-adaptive system changes to improve its performance by adjusting its
operation to the feedback from users. A user-adaptive system infers the
goals and needs of users from multiple sources of information in terms of
activity and interests. Research on user-adaptive systems should be
addressed to identify new means for enriching the user experience through
advances in automated reasoning, adaption and user interface design. User
models are particularly important. To build adaptive systems, a combination
of different disciplines is required, such as usability engineering,
human-computer interaction, software engineering, system engineering,
psychology, and sociology, each one providing its principles and

Dear crowdsourcing researcher, 

Paid crowdsourcing is growing fast, but how can we make sure platform-based
work is fair and of high quality? Weaving relations of trust through
transparency and managing reputation, as in the traditional workplace, is
key to improving crowd work environments and user experience.

Are you working on something related? We would love to hear about it!
