5th International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare
„Transforming healthcare through innovations in mobile and wireless technologies“ (October 14-16, 2015, London)
The fifth edition of MobiHealth proposes to continue and extend the focus areas of the first 5 editions editions with focuses on specific research and scientific challenges in the Healthcare Technology domain faced in Europe and globally and hence 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 ambit of the application of mobile communications (technologies, standards, solutions, methodologies, …) to the improvement of human health.
As such, the conference will have a multi-tier approach: going from implant sensors to ubiquitous patient monitoring environments and technologies from in-hospital to in-home.
The main themes will include (but are not limited to):
- Advances in sensor devices for biomedical monitoring;
- Intra-body communication issues (propagation & transmission);
- Body Area networks (architectures, protocols, scheduling, …);
- Heterogenous and in-/on-/out- networks;
- Wearable, outdoor and home-based applications;
- Data collection and management at hubs, mobile devices and gateways;
- Energy management and optimisation issues in biomedical devices and networks;
- Decision support algorithms for data analysis;
- Healthcare telemetry and telemedicine;
- Remote diagnosis and patient management;
- Accuracy, reliability, security, protection, identity, privacy, of diagnoses and data;
- All-pervasive wireless systems for health applications;
- Factoring in the environment (hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living,…).
Three keynotes will be given to cover the varied interests of the participants:
- The way forward in personalised body are networks (consisting of several biomedical sensors inside, on or outside the body).
- The importance of material science and engineering in deriving future smart healthcare systems. This will include aspect related to nano-technologies and reconfigurable mechanical and electronic devices.
- Providing the optimum solution for patient monitoring and inclusion of users in the feedback and decision making through bi0directional interfaces and more physical/virtual interactions for areas even extending to mental health.
