The technology needed to realize the goal of fully pervasive and mobile computing is rapidly coming together. Its emergence represents an unprecedented opportunity to expand the power of the Internet beyond traditional computing devices, enabling a world of smart spaces and smart appliances providing often invisible support for a variety of context-aware services with tremendous environmental and social benefits. Recent advances in wireless sensor technologies, coupled with the increasing capabilities of mobile and embedded computing devices, has triggered a rapid surge of interest in a variety of critical services, raging from pervasive healthcare and habitat monitoring to critical infrastructure protection and object tracking. It is clear, however, that the need for trust in the decision making ability of the pervasive system is paramount for its success. The objective of this panel is to address issues related to trust in pervasive computing environments. In this context, trust goes beyond traditional security concerns, namely privacy, confidentiality, information integrity, service availability, authorization and authentication. The focus will be on gaining better understanding of the notion of trust in pervasive computing, understanding the psycho-sociological aspects of trust, and discussing frameworks and models for trust establishment, dynamics and evolution. Panelists from leading technology companies and research institutions will present brief talks centering on different aspects of the pervasive healthcare infrastructure. The audience will then be encouraged to ask questions and present short opinions.

Pervasive healthcare systems have the potential to revolutionize next generation medical applications and significantly improve the quality of healthcare services. In recent years, significant progress has been made in the development of a number of sensing and monitoring healthcare devices for clinical applications ranging from managing chronic diseases and acute diabetes to epilepsy and other debilitating neurological disorders. These wearable devices enable continuous monitoring of physiological signs as opposed to occasional episodic reviews with doctors and healthcare staff. More recently a growing interest in smart, implantable in vivo monitoring and intervention devices is starting to emerge. While progress is being made in the technologies associated with micro-sensing and actuation, issues related to the development of an information and computation infrastructure for the acquisition, fusion and dissemination of multi-sensory date and the development of power-efficient, QoS-aware protocols and mechanisms, for dependable, robust and secure wireless monitoring systems are still to be investigated. This panel focuses on discussing the long-term, challenging research problems and technological barriers that need to be addressed in order to enable a ubiquitous computing and communications infrastructure for large-scale, pervasive healthcare. Panelists from leading technology companies and research institutions will present brief talks centering on different aspects of the pervasive healthcare infrastructure. The audience will then be encouraged to ask questions and present short opinions.
