Call for Papers

Research in multimedia and health is driven by the current technological advancements in sensors and personalized healthcare. There is an increasing number of research work that shows how core multimedia research is becoming an important enabler for solutions with applications and relevance for the societal questions of health. This workshop brings together researchers from diverse topics such as multimedia, pervasive health, lifelogging, accessibility, HCI, but also health, medicine, and psychology to address challenges and opportunities of multimedia in and for health.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
• Fusing, interpretation and visualization of health and wellness data
• Supporting self-monitoring of personal health by multimedia
• Complex health monitoring from heterogeneous data streams
• Eye-movements and mental commands for impaired
• Brain computer interfaces and multimedia analysis
• Multimedia in health behavior change technology
• Multimedia in personal health records
• Long term health monitoring beyond health behavior change
• Making sense of personal data for health
• Multimedia activity monitoring of health related daily activities
• Health related event detection in large data collections
• Multimedia for the self-management of personal health
• Multimedia retrieval for personal big health data collections
• AR/VR for exploring multimedia health data

All submissions must be original work not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. While the workshop will accept papers describing completed work as well as work-in-progress, the emphasis is on early discussion of novel and radical ideas (potentially of a controversial nature) rather than detailed description and evaluation of incremental advances. The workshop accepts full papers (up to 8 pages, including references), short papers (up to 4 pages, including references) and demos (up to 2 pages including references) in pdf. Reviews will be single-blind: author names and affiliations should be included. Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of the main conference ACM MM 2018.
