Internet-of-Things for Healthcare: Smart Architectures, Applications, and Microsystems
Aim and objectives:
The emerging field of internet of things holds a great potential to meet unmet needs of healthcare. However, to become applicable in clinical practice, IoT technologies demand research, development, testing, and trials, since these systems are intended to be a part of both hospitals and naturalistic environments such as homes. This workshop will demonstrate state-of-the-art IoT technologies–wearable sensors, body area sensors, advanced pervasive healthcare systems, and mobile to cloud computing–that are aimed at providing tele-health interventions to patients with specific diseases/disorders and to individuals for healthier lifestyle. This session will also provide valuable insights to researchers and engineers on how to design IoT systems that empower medical experts to remotely monitor and intervene patients. The aim of this session is to initiate conversations among technologists, engineers, and clinicians to synergize their efforts in producing low-cost, high-performance, highly-efficient, deployable IoT systems.
The proceedings of the special session will be published together with the proceedings of MobiHealth 2015 by ACM and made available through ACM Digital Library. Papers must be formatted using the ACM Author’s Kit.
