The workshop aims to mobilize an interdisciplinary community of scholarship and practice to address the impacts of urban green spaces on the health and well-being of citizens, using pervasive computing technologies as a unifying central concept.

This workshop aims to:

  • identify the existing data sources and pervasive computing technologies applicable to assessment of green space impacts on human health and well-being.
  • explore the use of pervasive computing technologies and resultant health and well-being data by urban planners and policymakers.
  • define the key elements of pervasive computing technologies to promote urban development with positive individual and community-level health and well-being outcomes.

Participation and abstract submission

Motivated participants are invited to submit a 1-page abstract (up to 400 words) describing their pervasive concept solution and its fit to the theme of the workshop (see instructions below). Participants with accepted abstracts shall demonstrate their solution with support from a prototype, poster, video and\or other material during the actual workshop.

The abstract should include at least:

  1. A short positioning statement regarding the opportunities that pervasive technologies offer for collecting health and well-being data from urban green spaces.
  2. A short description of pervasive solutions that they plan to demonstrate.
  3. Some preliminary ideas on innovative uses\applications of pervasive computing in health and well-being assessment in public\urban green spaces.

Authors are strongly encouraged to include in their abstracts visual material, such as concept drawings as well as to make reference to supporting visual material that can be watched online. If necessary, authors may make initial remarks regarding the practical requirements of their demonstrations (e.g. electric power supply).
