UBIcomp '16 Sept 12-16
The ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) is the result of a merger of the two most renowned conferences in the field: Pervasive and UbiComp. While it retains the name of the latter in recognition of the visionary work of Mark Weiser, its long name reflects the dual history of the new event.
This workshop aims to bring together those interested in developing ubiquitous health management and related personal decision support systems to identify how gaps in knowledge can be addressed and design practices can be improved to better support key communities and contexts of use in this rapidly growing field.

Ubiquitous computing technologies have the potential to revolutionize the support of chronic health conditions: improving quality of life, reducing costs and optimizing health outcomes. Wearable networks of connected devices and sensors offer the prospect of personalized support and contextually aware advice, for those with specific chronic health conditions. However, there are many obstacles and concerns that need to be addressed before the full potential can be realized. This workshop aims to bring together those interested in developing ubiquitous health management and related personal decision support systems to identify how gaps in knowledge can be addressed and design practices can be improved to better support key communities and contexts of use in this rapidly growing field.
We believe that from every perspective it is essential that these systems be designed primarily to meet the needs of the patients rather than those of any other stakeholder.
