A call for papers has been announced for the first Workshop on Digital Biomarkers, which will be co-located with MobiSys 2017. The workshop offers a unified forum designed to bring academics, industry researchers and medical practitioners together. The organizers seek novel, innovative and exciting submissions that are broadly related to the modeling, testing, and validation of new digital biomarkers for predicting incidence of diseases, health conditions, effects of treatments, and interventions.
The workshop aims to facilitate a systematic discussion among experts from different knowledge domains including mobile sensing, systems, machine learning, medicine and health sciences in order to:
- Identify new digital biomarkers capturing behavioral health, chronic and degenerative diseases
- Identify the key shortcomings of the existing mobile and wearable sensor systems, and research study software platforms (e.g., ResearchKit and ResearchStack) for digital biomarker inference in terms of scalability, customizability, and sensing affordances
