EHST considers e-Health services and their related technologies, with a particular stress on the modeling of complex e-Health IT-driven service-provisioning systems. Some fundamental modeling challenges related to e-Health services are to be addressed. In approaching such services though, we are mainly concerned with Tele-Monitoring and Tele-Treatment, as two essential directions of supporting healthcare through advanced ICT.

In 2014, EHST will be held in Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, following previous events in The Netherlands, Switzerland, and Bulgaria.

We welcome paper submissions from but not limited to the following areas and topics:


1. MONITORING FACILITIES
Disappearing Vital Signal Capturing Sensors
Sensor Embedded and Integrated Data Analysis
Sensor-'Cloud' Interaction and Collaboration
- Complementary Processing
- Monitoring Instructions (from the Cloud)
- Service Discovery by the Sensors
Data Imperfection
Privacy-sensitive Monitoring Protocols and ID Management
Remote and Local Vital Signal Management

2. TREATMENT FACILITIES
Limits of Remote Treatment and Diagnosis
Decision for Intervention
- Adequacy of Monitoring Data
- Responsibility
- Risk Estimation
Remote Control
- from the 'Cloud'
- from a Human
Tele-centers as Facilities Facilitating Complex Interventions

3. THE ROLE OF SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE IN SUPPORT OF MONITORING AND TREATMENT
Software Components and Software Services
ICT Applications
Computing Platforms
Interoperability and Scalability of Systems and Platforms

4. USER EXPERIENCE AND CLINICAL EVALUATION
User-centered Design and User Needs Assessment
Patient-Centered e-Health and Experience Studies

Publication
Accepted papers will be presented at EHST 2014 and included in the symposium proceedings, published by SciTePress. All presented papers will also be included in the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary).


======================================================


Venue
The EHST sessions will be held at the Chambre des Metiers that is not only in very close proximity to both the University of Luxembourg and the CRP Henri Tudor but is also conveniently reachable by bus (for around 20 minutes) from both the city center and the airport. Luxembourg is the capital of the Grand Duchy, one of the founder states of the European Union, where about 43 per cent of the half million inhabitants are foreign. This multicultural ambience of day-to-day contact with people from the four corners of the Earth gives the small state an astonishingly cosmopolitan outlook - not least thanks to the European institutions and the financial centre. It is however far easier to get around the capital (100 000 inhabitants) than it is in Berlin or Paris. The distances are short. There is a lively nightlife scene around the fashionable bars of Hollerich, Grund, and Clausen. Furthermore, there are plenty of sports, leisure activities as well as events:
cinemas and climbing parks, mountain bike trails and an enormous cultural range - from Jazz in the medieval city, contemporary art at MUDAM, theatre in every language or classical music in one of the most beautiful new buildings in Luxembourg, the Philharmonie. All this set against the romantic backdrop of the medieval city (a UNESCO world heritage site since 1994), rhe castle in the richy-forested north and the vineyards along the Mosel.
