PERIMETER Meeting – Tel Aviv Israel May 2010

PERIMETER’s seventh plenary meeting took place in Tel Aviv Israel on 27-28 May 2010.
The meeting was hosted by PERIMETER partner, Traffix Systems.
This meeting was very important as Phase 2 of the project comes to a close and the second year EU review for the PERIMETER project draws near.
Day one of the meeting was mostly devoted to the technical and integration issues for Phase 2 of the project.
On Day two the consortium discussed and decided upon the functionalities and presentations that will be required for the PERIMETER review which is due to take place in Barcelona at the end of June.

PERIMETER to present at HealthCom 2010 and feature in the Journal of eHealth Technology and Application

We are delighted to announce that our paper entitled “Seamless Mobile Communications for mHealth” has been accepted for presentation and publication in the Journal of eHealth Technology and Application special issue on mHealth to be distributed at Healthcom2010.
The paper written by Gemma Power, Eileen Dillon and France Cleary will be presented at the 12th International Conference on e-Health Networking, Application & Services IEEE Healthcom 2010 event in Lyon France on 1-3 July 2010.
The paper examines the use of mobile devices and technologies within the PERIMETER project in providing seamless mobile communications for mHealth. In particular, PERIMETER makes use of smart phones with intelligent sensors with sensing capabilities such as GPS location, proximity and accelerometers to create a mobile wireless sensor network to ensure sensitive health related information can be transferred in a seamless and timely fashion across different selected high quality network connections.
