Description
-----------
Due to recent advancement in electronics industry, our homes can be
equipped with
smart devices that can monitor a patient's vital signs and other
useful information.
The patient information can be locally processed and automatically
transmitted to
the relevant health-care staff, or they can be handled locally in the
homes. These
smart devices can assist in knowledge extraction and filtering the
unwanted data.
The quality of current health care system can be significantly
improved by using
these smart devices.


Topics
------
The main themes include, but not limited to:
 -Smart home applications for tele-health
 -Ubiquitous and pervasive healthcare services
 -Privacy, trust, and security in tele-health
 -Sensor network management for tele-health
 -Body sensor networks
 -Energy efficient communication protocols
 -Energy efficient data management
 -Monitoring vital signs
 -Monitoring elderly and congestive heart failure patients
 -Monitoring chronic medical conditions
 -Integration of smart applications in healthcare system
 -Intelligent agent architectures

We plan to submit extended versions of selected papers that appear at
the workshop
for consideration as a special issue in an international journal (TBA).
