Context-Aware, Smart and Cognitive Healthcare

In this special session we will pay attention to the latest developments in context-awareness and smart environments applied to healthcare. This includes the already well-stablished concept of Smart Healthcare in smart cities, smart hospitals and, in general, in context-aware environments. The session will consider contributions in all layers: from the Physical layer (sensors, actuators), to the Application layer (apps, recommenders, etc.). Also, the session will open the door to contributions in the more recently introduced concept of Cognitive Healthcare, which considers the interrelation between artificial intelligence, IoT, context-awareness and healthcare.

List of topics (not comprehensive):

  • Context-awareness
  • Context-aware environments
  • Smart Healthcare
  • Cognitive Healthcare
  • Sensors and Actuators for Smart and Cognitive Healthcare
  • Radio-planning and radio-propagation for Smart Healthcare
  • Security and Privacy issues in Smart and Cognitive Healthcare
  • Reliability and confidentiality in Smart and Cognitive Healthcare
  • Applications and real life examples
