Many governments are striving to improve the health of individuals and communities by strengthening their healthcare systems, and enhancing methods of disease detection and prevention. It is expected that advances in information and communication technologies will play a pivotal role in the development of new sensing and imaging technologies for local and remote detection and possible prevention of diseases. In fact, these sensing and imaging systems will use the same fabrication technology that has enabled the drastic lowering of cost, exponential increase in complexity of electronic chips and widespread availability of computing and communication resources. Not only will these systems be suitable for Ubiquitous Health and Environment (smart homes, smart hospitals) applications, but they are also crucial to national development and poverty reduction.
The First International Symposium on Future Information and Communication Technologies for Ubiquitous HealthCare (Ubi-HealthTech’13) aims to bring together experts in engineering, communications, physical sciences, and health sciences as well as computer and computation specialists with the common goal of applying information and communication technologies for Ubiquitous healthcare and Ubiquitous environment systems design and applications - two areas that are at the top of the agenda is most countries around the globe. Some of the topics to be covered by top specialists from around the globe include (but not limited to):
- SMARTER HOMES, SMARTER MEDICAL CENTERS , SMARTER PLANET, BETTER HEALTHCARE
- EMERGING INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR U-HEALTH
- PERVASIVE AND UBIQUITOUS WIRELESS HEALTH SYSTEMS, NETWORKS AND SERVICES
- WEARABLE AND IMPLANTABLE WIRELESS SENSORS FOR U-HEALTH
- MEDICAL ELECTRONICS FOR BETTER HEALTHCARE
- BIOMEDICAL AND BIOSENSORS ENGINEERING
- ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR EMERGING APPLICATIONS IN U-HEALTH
- U-HEALTH FOR AGING
The symposium will include presentations of theoretical and experimental achievements, innovative U-Health systems, prototyping efforts, case studies and advances in technology related to U-healthcare & Smart Homes/Medical Centers. Submitted papers must not be published or under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. They must follow the standard IEEE conference template (two column, single-spaced, 10 point font, etc.) and should not exceeding 6 printed pages, including figures and references. Papers must be submitted online via EDAS link (https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=14631) and must be in Adobe Acrobat PDF. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE Ubi-HealthTech'13 Conference Proceedings and will be submitted to be included in IEEE Xplore®. Authors should clearly identify how their considered topics relate to issues on Ubiquitous Healthcare Communication Systems, applications and services. Proposals describing an overall working system are particularly of interest. Best selected papers will be published in the International Journal on E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC).
