CfP: IEEE International Workshop on ICT Solutions for e-Health

ICTS4eHealth 2017 – 2nd edition of the IEEE International Workshop on
ICT Solutions for e-Health
Aquila Atlantis Hotel, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
July 03-06 2017 – www.icts4ehealth.icar.cnr.it

in conjunction with the Twenty-Second IEEE Symposium on Computers and

e-Health is one of the major research topics that have been attracting
cross-disciplinary research groups. The deployment of new emerging ICT
technologies for Health, especially based on Cloud computing, Internet
of Things (IoT), and Computational Intelligence, is attracting the
interest of many researchers.

The use of Cloud computing, IoT technologies, and methods typical of
Soft Computing and Computational Intelligence have been very prominent
recently and can be of great help in finding good solutions to many
practical healthcare applications.

For instance, health monitoring, health data storage, health data
collection, mobile health, pervasive health, healthcare monitoring,
telemedicine, context-aware computing, ubiquitous computing, processing
health data in the cloud, securing health data in the cloud and
Assistive Technology (AT) are areas of interest that are being addressed
using cloud computing and IoT techniques. On the other hand, several
challenging issues have raised due to the adoption of such emerging
technologies. These include the quality of health data, the ability to
retrieve information and use it in health context, as for example in
tasks related to machine learning, knowledge discovery, decision
support, regression, forecasting, optimization, feature selection, and
additionally privacy and security issues of health data while being
processed in the cloud, availability of health data, models of context
and tele-monitoring of contextual applications.

ICTS4eHealth 2017 is the second edition of the International IEEE
Workshop dedicated to ICT solutions for e-Health, especially based on
Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Computational Intelligence.

The workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry,
government, and medical centers in order to present the state of the art
in the emerging area of the use of cloud systems in connected health
infrastructure and applications, and the use of IoT and Computational
Intelligence technique in the area of eHealth.
