ICTH is a premier venue for bringing together multi-disciplinary researchers, professionals and practitioners from academia and healthcare who are engaged in different facets of ICT and healthcare. The conference encourages innovative research contributions providing the recent significant developments and promising future trends of ICT based applications, systems, tools, environments and infrastructures in the fields of health/medical care, and related domains, such as public health and pharmaceuticals. Papers on either completed or ongoing research are invited in the following and related topics of interests.

Lund University is a strong influence on Lund city, and several university buildings are located in the heart of the city. The combination of businesses, students and researchers from around the world has given birth to Lund's unique character as a city of strong research-based global industries. The Malmö region, including Lund, is the 4th most inventive region in the world. Sweden’s first and most successful research park, Ideon, is situated in Lund, and the country’s two largest research ventures, MAX IV Laboratory and the European Spallation Source (ESS) are located here. The students at Lund University comprise a large part of the population of the city and consequently have a significant impact on it and contribute to the youthful, laid-back atmosphere. The young population influences all aspects of life in Lund, from the daily rhythm of the city, to city planning, pubs and bars, museums and countless cultural and leisure activities. The combination of old traditions and history together with the bustling student life makes Lund a great place to live and study!
