International Workshop on the IoT for Healthcare

Co-Located at SMARTCOMP 2016

The annual IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing conference is a major forum for the discussion of innovations and recent advances related to smart computing. The International Workshop on the IoT for Healthcare 2016 is a workshop, co-located with SMARTCOMP’16, that focus on the design, implementation, deployment, evaluation of distributed system platforms, algorithms for enhanced privacy and security, and architectures for Internet-of-Things for Healhcare. Highlights of the workshop will include experts from Academia and Industry to present their views on IoT and its healthcare application. The panelists will be a diverse group of individuals.

The International Workshop on the IoT for Healthcare 2016 seeks papers on a diversity of topics, namely those identifying new research directions. The proceedings of the IoT for Healthcare 2016 will be published together with the proceedings of SMARTCOMP 2016 by IEEE and made available through IEEExplore. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended article versions to one of the ISI-indexed high-quality journals. The topics of the workshop include, but not limited to:


Architectures and Applications of IoT-Healthcare

  • Internet of things for medical and healthcare applications
  • Mobile-to-cloud computing (MCC) for healthcare
  • Fog computing/Edge clouds for healthcare
  • Cloud-enabled body sensor networks
