This Special Issue seeks selected manuscripts with major extensions for a Special Issue on the 7th EAI International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare (MobiHealth), held from 14–17 November 2017, in Vienna, Austria. The 7th edition of MobiHealth proposed to continue and extend the focus areas of the first six editions with a focus on specific research and scientific challenges in the Healthcare Technology domain, faced in Europe and globally, and, hence, with a more interactive input from industry. The essence of the conference lies in its interdisciplinary nature, with original contributions cutting across boundaries, but all within the area of the application of mobile communications (technologies, standards, solutions, methodologies, etc.) to the improvement of human health. The Special Issue seeks quality manuscripts from MobiHealth’17, with major extensions, scheduled to appear in the July issue of 2018. All aspects of novel mobile and wireless technologies for smart healthcare-wearable sensors, body area sensors, advanced pervasive healthcare systems, and Big Data analytics that are aimed at providing tele-health interventions to individuals for healthier lifestyles, are of interest.
