Call For Papers

Aim and Scope:

Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as mobile phones, smart watches, fitness trackers and smart home appliances constantly acquire data about our lives and our bodies. These data can be used to support research in health-related subjects, to improve or automatise diagnosis, treatments and foster healthy and independent living. Along with benefits,
important challenges come in terms of quality and meaningfulness of the collected data, usability and long term acceptance, transparency, data protection and trustability.
The aim of this workshop is to explore these fundamental questions with researchers and practitioners from academia and industry.

Topics and scope:

● Use of IoT systems for health research
● IoT and electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes (ePRO) / electronic Clinical Outcome
Assessment (eCOA)
● IoT-based tele-health and home monitoring systems
● IoT-based Active and Healthy Ageing technologies
● Hardware/software platforms for health research
● Algorithms and methods for gathering clinically-relevant knowledge from IoT devices
● Security, privacy and trust in IoT for health applications
● Clinical trials and pilot studies involving IoT
