UHH 2017 - 3rd International Workshop on Ubiquitous Home Healthcare (UHH'17)

Date2017-09-04 - 2017-09-07


VenuePrague, Czech Republic Czech Republic



Topics/Call fo Papers

Population aging is a phenomenon affecting many countries around the world. For example in Europe the life expectancy increased from 45 years in the early twentieth century, to 80 years now. Significantly longer life leads to age-related problems and diseases. In parallel, the cost of hospital care is increasing and additionally, a lack of the qualified caregivers is observed. Development of ubiquitous healthcare technologies can improve the quality of life of assisted citizens and can curtail growth in healthcare spending fueled by aging populations, and the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, cancer and chronic heart and lung diseases. In particular, information systems integrated with wearable, mobile devices and sensor networks at home can continuously assist persons while moving out or staying at home. Ubiquitous healthcare systems used as assisted living solutions will not only help to prevent, detect and monitor health conditions of a person but will also support of elderly, sick and disabled people in their independent living.
The goal of the UHH 2017 workshop is to gather researchers and engineers working in the field of ubiquitous healthcare to present and discuss new ideas, methods, and applications of assisted living IT technologies.
The workshop welcomes all work related to ubiquitous healthcare, but with a focus on the following themes (this list is not exhaustive):
Ubiquitous healthcare information systems,
Information processing algorithms for UHH,
Ubiquitous services for home and mobile applications,
Human-system interaction in UHH,
Wearable sensors and systems,
Smart glasses and smart watches in UHH,
Data mining and knowledge discovery in ubiquitous healthcare,
Integration of sensors and devices for UHH,
Security of ubiquitous healthcare systems,
Ensuring the Availability, Transparency, Seamlessness, Awareness, and Trustworthiness (A.T.S.A.T.) of home and mobile systems,
Standardization in ubiquitous home healthcare,
Applications of UHH for elderly, sick, and disabled people,
Elderly care monitored dosage systems,
Welfare technology for UHH.
