ICOST provides a premier venue for the presentation and discussion of research in the design, development, deployment, and evaluation of Artificial intelligence for health, Smart Urban Environments, Assistive Technologies, Chronic Disease Management, Coaching, and Health Telematics systems.
After eighteen successful conferences held in France (2003), Singapore (2004), Canada(2005), Northern Ireland (2006), Japan (2007), Singapore (2008), France (2009), Korea (2010), Canada (2011), Italy (2012), Singapore (2013), USA (2014), Switzerland (2015), China (2016), France (2017), Singapore (2018), USA (2019), and Tunisia (2020), ICOST has been established as an interdisciplinary conference for technology and public health experts to tackle emerging challenges related to AI technologies for health and wellbeing.
ICOST proceedings are of the top 25% downloads of Nature- Springer LNCS (over 400k downloads of books and chapters).
ICOST 2022 edition will be hosted by Institut Mines-Télécom, in Paris, France, from 27 to 30 June 2022. The conference theme for this year is "Participative Urban Health and Healthy Ageing in the Age of AI."
ICOST 2022 advocates an in-person conference style. However, depending on the evolution of the pandemic situation, a hybrid model could be put in place.
Submitted papers to the conference will be blind reviewed by an international committee bringing together multidisciplinary experts renowned worldwide in different fields of research (Engineering, clinical, public health, humanities, social sciences, etc.).
Accepted papers will be published by Springer as Open Access. Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to be published in a Special Issue of Sensors-MDPI Open-Access Journal (Impact Factor 3.031) or Frontiers in Digital Health.
