2022 Call for Papers


11th International Workshop on Intelligent Environments

Supporting Healthcare and Well-being (WISHWell’22)

Biarritz-France – [20th or 23th of June, 2022]

Background and Goals: The workshop will bring together researchers from both industry and academia from the various disciplines to contribute to this new edition of the International Workshop on Intelligent Environments Supporting Healthcare and Well-Being. This event previously joined forces with the International Workshop “PervaSense – Situation recognition and medical data analysis in Pervasive Health environments” and the workshop on “Smart Healthcare and Healing Environments”. 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 (including Telepresence)
Support for independent living
Support for rehabilitation
Environments supporting carers
Decision Support Systems (DSS)
Data management architectures
Body area networks
Ambient Intelligence applied to health and social care
