Paper submission

1. Prepare your paper

Paper format: Submitted papers must be formatted according to the SIGCHI papers format. Only PDF files will be accepted. We encourage two types of submissions as indicated below:
  • Full papers: maximum of 8 10 pages including references.
  • Short papers: maximum of 4 pages including references.
  • Workshop papers: please note that submissions should be conducted according to the instructions given in each corresponding workshop website.
All submissions must be anonymised. No identifying information on Authors or their affiliation should appear on the paper (except for neutral references to their own work).

Each paper will be blind, peer-reviewed by members of the Pervasive Health program committee with additional expert reviewers drawn from relevant research domains. Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation. The paper should make explicit how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been published or submitted.

Papers submitted to Pervasive Health 2017 must not have been previously published and must not be under review for publication in any other venue. If a submission extends work described in a previous publication of their own, we strongly encourage authors to include a citation to that publication.
Please note that the camera-ready version will conform to the same guidelines as the submission for review.

3. Register for the Conference

Accepted papers and posters must be presented at the conference, so at least one author must register. When the registration is completed, the author will receive a code which will be needed for uploading the camera ready materials.

4. Final Paper Submission

Camera ready materials will be uploaded to a proceedings preparation system that may be different from the submission system. More details on this will follow in due time. Authors should expect to interact with the proceedings editor after camera ready submission to address any issues related to formatting. These interactions will require fast turnaround so that the deadline for proceedings preparation can be met.
