------ Call for papers ------
It is our great pleasure to invite you to SGRH 2018 - Serious Games for Rehabilitation in Healthcare: Applications and Implications. Special track an HEALTHINFO 2018 Conference, which will be held in Nice, France. 
Healthcare is continually being improved, especially regarding the use of the current technologies. In the field of rehabilitation, the use of serious games and related technologies may help to develop new rehabilitation procedures. There are several approaches in the area of rehabilitation that invoke technology for a more comprehensive and dynamic learning process aimed at the physical and psychological recovery of a disabled or limitations person, with a view to their reintegration and possible recovery. An example is a collaborative environment, in the broad sense of the word, a place where people from all areas can exchange information about the area under study. So, these possibilities create endless opportunities of use in those games and attract attention from other areas of knowledge.
This track examines the researches on systems for rehabilitation, based on exercises and serious games regarding the use of the new technologies.
The main objective of this track is to explore the landscape of serious games technologies in healthcare and present solutions for the development on environments applied to the rehabilitation.
Topics include, but not limited to:
 Serious games in eHealth and mHealth
 Machine learning techniques for healthcare
