7th EAI International Symposium on Pervasive Computing Paradigms for Mental Health (MindCare)

MindCare Symposium is the place where technological, psychiatric and psychological disciplines meet. It hosts top researchers and practitioners focused on exploiting technological advancements to maintain and improve mental health.
 
The MindCare Community leverages the opportunities offered by the technological advancements to provide an improved diagnosis, a better support to both healthy subjects and patients, and also to extend the theoretical knowledge.
 
In this regard, we are soliciting high-quality papers in the following topics (but not limited to):
 
Sensing and data processing
  • Wearable computing
  • Smart environments
  • Biomedical devices
  • Speech Analysis
  • Big data for individual / public health
  • Computational Psychometrics
  • Combined sensing systems and infrastructures
  • Computer-enhanced self reporting
  • Machine learning and data mining methods
User experience
  • Novel interfaces
  • Usability studies
  • Visualizations
  • Augmented reality
  • Virtual reality approaches
Applications
  • Mental wellbeing support
  • Stress / Emotional response analysis
  • Affective computing
  • Serious games for mental health
  • Cognitive stimulation
  • Life-logging methods
  • Monitoring activities relevant to mental health
  • Psychological treatments of mental disorders
  • Systems to support patients and / or caregivers
  • Using technology to improve the understanding of cognitive
  • processes
  • Tools for Neuropsychological Assessment and Rehabilitation
  • Mental health promotion and disorders prevention

 

MindCare Symposium is acknowledged by the European funded project "BodyPass" – API-ecosystem for cross-sectorial exchange of 3D personal data (H2020-779780)

 

The accepted papers will be published by Springer and they will appear in the SpringerLink - one of the largest digital online libraries that covers a myriad of scientific disciplines. In addition, the proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
 
A selected number of papers will be proposed in our specific Special Issues, among which:
