5th International Workshop on Intelligent Environments

Supporting Healthcare and Well-being (WISHWell’13)

Dublin, Ireland – 3rd of December 2013

Background and Goals: The workshop will bring together researchers from both industry and academia from the various disciplines to contribute to the 5th year of the International Workshop on Intelligent Environments Supporting Healthcare and Well-Being. This year the workshop joins forces with the International Workshop “PervaSense – Situation recognition and medical data analysis in Pervasive Health environments” that is its fifth edition as well. Healthcare environments (within the hospital and the home) are extremely complex and challenging to manage from an IT and IS perspective, as they are required to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various circumstances with a number of resource constraints. Pervasive healthcare technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by integrating them within existing healthcare services. It is essential that intelligent pervasive healthcare solutions are developed and correctly integrated to assist health care professionals in delivering high levels of patient care. It is equally important that these pervasive solutions are used to empower patients and relatives for self-care and management of their health to provide seamless access for health care services.

Areas of interest: include, but are not limited to, the following:

+  Ambient assisted living
+  Mobile health monitoring
+  Health enabling technologies
+  Next generation telehealth/telecare
+  Systems to encourage healthy lifestyles
+  Case Studies
+  Wearable sensor systems
+  Health monitoring from the home and work
+  Support for independent living
+  Support for rehabilitation
+  Environments supporting carers
+  Decision Support Systems (DSS)
+  Data management architectures
