Call For Papers

The International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Ageing Well and e-Health aims to be a meeting point for those that study and apply information and communication technologies for improving the quality of life of the elderly and for helping people stay healthy, independent and active at work or in their community along their whole life. ICT4AWE facilitates the exchange of information and dissemination of best practices, innovation and technical improvements in the fields of age-related health care, education, social coordination and ambient assisted living. From e-Health to intelligent systems, and ICT devices, this will be a point of interest for all those that work in research and development and in companies involved in promoting the well-being of aged people.
HSP is an inter-disciplinary research area, which is focused on using scientific models, methodologies and technologies for enhancing human quality of life. In the next seven years 25% of EU citizens will be over the age of 60. An aging population opens a considerable sort of concerns, namely: understanding health, wellbeing and disease; preventing and diagnosing disease; treating and managing disease; active ageing and self-management of health; methods and knowledge; health care provision and integrated care.
Following a person-centered approach, it deals directly with individuals and groups of individuals. The main goal of this workshop is contribute to the development of new approaches and enabling technologies that will enhance human quality of life, leading to healthier, innovation and secure societies.
The contributions should be person-centered and they should be in accordance with the thematic strand "Healthy and Secure People":

In this workshop we are looking for scientific contributions on the following topics, but are not limited to:
• Ambient intelligence for wellbeing and e-health applications, supported by RFID technology and Wireless Sensor Networks;
• Artificial Intelligence systems;
• Business Intelligence Solutions;
• eGovernment solutions to the citizen;
• Health care information systems interoperability, security and efficiency;
• Human factors, efficient cost control and management in society;
• Innovation in people supporting activities (e.g. health care, schooling and services).
• Intelligent decision support and data systems in health care, medicine and society;
• Mobile applications and ubiquitous devices;
• People Security in the Society;
• Pervasive HealthCare;
• Robotic systems and devices for health care and medicine;
• Technologies to promote a healthy and secure society.

Submission and Paper Format
