HEALTHINFO 2018 - The Third International Conference on Informatics and Assistive Technologies for Health-Care, Medical Support and Wellbeing

October 14, 2018 - October 18, 2018

HEALTHINFO 2018: Call for Papers

The progress in society and technology regarding the application of systems approaches information and data processing principles, modeling and information technology, computation and communications solutions led to a substantial improvement of problems in assistive healthcare, public health, and the everyday wellbeing. While achievements are tangible, open issues related to global acceptance, costs models, personalized services, record privacy, and real-time medical actions for citizens’ wellbeing are still under scrutiny.

HEALTHINFO 2018, The Third International Conference on Informatics and Assistive Technologies for Healthcare, Medical Support and Wellbeing tackles particular aspects belonging to health informatics systems, health information, health informatics data, health informatics technologies, clinical practice and training, and wellbeing informatics in terms of existing and needed solutions.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
