Scope

As part of the growth of ubiquitous computing we have seen the emergence of ubiquitous computing in healthcare with the aim of improving a patient’s health and quality of life.

‘Ubiquitous healthcare’ describes a seamless blend of technologies including cloud computing, mobile devices, embedded systems, software agents, plus environment and patient sensors and actuators.

Interacting with ubiquitous healthcare systems should be both enjoyable and intuitive for patients and there are significant human computer interaction (HCI) issues that need to de considered in developing effective, robust, unobtrusive and friendly user interfaces to ubiquitous healthcare systems.

One way to achieve this is through natural language interfaces, and natural language processing (NLP) has received significant attention in areas such as personal assistants, intelligent tutors, question answering, search and information retrieval, sentiment analysis, recommender systems.

Relevant research in these areas has been published in many international forums including PervasiveHealth, Per-Health, the IEEE International Conference on E-health Networking, Application & Services, the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing and many others.

However, the full extent of the synergies between ubiquitous healthcare and NLP is yet to be realized and this theme issue aims to collect and consolidate innovative and high-quality research in NLP in ubiquitous healthcare.

The issue invites original scientific contributions in the form of theoretical foundations, experimental research, surveys, case studies, NLP-based techniques and ubiquitous healthcare systems.

Topics

The list of topics in scope for this issue includes, but is not limited to:
