Challenges in ubiquitous personal healthcare and ambient assisted living:
from technology to successful user-centric applications

International Symposium on Applied Sciences in Biomedical and
Communication Technologies.
November 24-27, 2009. Bratislava, Slovak Republic.

Ambient Intelligence is about scenarios where sensors, actuators,
communication systems, logic infrastructures and interfaces are
non-invasively integrated in daily life environments. Thanks to these
technologies, we will be able to use highly adaptive and context-sensitive
applications, which will be aware of our situation and needs to perform
adequately. When applying this concept to healthcare and assisted living,
an exciting number of possibilities and challenges appear. This special
session aims at exploring some open issues that will make possible the
next generation of personal healthcare systems. Topics of interest include
(but are not limited to):

-Ambient Home Care Systems
-Advances in biomedical wearable sensors. Wireless sensor networks and
technologies for remote monitoring.
-Fusion strategies for personal health systems
-Data modeling for context-aware health applications
-Augmented objects for ambient assisted living
-Advanced applications for medical practitioners
-Cloud healthcare services
-Reality mining for healthcare (e.g. the use of mobile technologies to
support epidemiological studies)
-Context-aware applications for prevention and wellbeing.
-Mobile health applications.
-Accessibility issues for future remote healthcare systems.
-Context-aware applications for patients with special needs (e.g. mental
disabilities or physical impairments)
-Ubiquitous coaching strategies to promote behavioral modifications in
order to get a healthy lifestyle (e.g. in nutrition issues).
-Experimental results and analysis on the user experience on
tele-healthcare and u-healthcare services

All accepted submissions will be published in the ISABEL Conference
Proceedings, on line indexed by IEEE Xplore. Selected authors will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers to be considered for
publication in a Special Issue of a known Publishing House (under
