The workshop aims to bring researchers together from academia and industry to share the state-of-the art research and development in the areas of Internet of Things (IoT) for Healthcare. The main objective of this workshop is to invite papers that illustrate new ideas, innovative research results, or systematic reviews in the above mentioned area.

All IoT-Health 2018 accepted papers will be published by IEEE in IEEEXplore.

Workshop Scope:

Internet of Things (IoT) is a rapidly growing research area focused on many academic and industrial disciplines, especially in the healthcare domain. Due to the increased proliferation of body sensors, wearable devices and smartphones, the IoT enabled technologies are evolving the traditional healthcare to more sophisticated and personalized healthcare system. The use of IoT enabled technologies  in healthcare will allow efficient and safe healthcare, reduced cost, improved patient-care, and sustainability. The IoT technologies are now providing numerous opportunities to develop Smart and efficient healthcare solutions with more focus on intelligence and predictability for daily life activities, assisted living, and patient-care facilities. In the smart healthcare systems, numerous IoT devices and sensors are being used to monitor a patient’s healthcare status and transfer this data directly to remote data centers.

This workshop will focus on the major challenges in IoT for smart and effective Healthcare. We seek contributions addressing the following issues in Healthcare systems, but are not limited to:

- Internet of Things (IoT) System Architectures in Healthcare
