About ICTH 2015

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) continue to evolve and play a vital role in the advancement of modern healthcare and computing research. ICTs and its applications have a significant impact on the healthcare industry, as they play an important role in the delivery of better and efficient healthcare services and in the enhancement of the quality of life in our society. Research in the broad spectrum of ICT in different aspects of the healthcare sector include computer based and wireless computing, wearable computing, sensor based systems, context aware computing, user-centric computing, distributed computing, artificial intelligence, virtual environments and human computer interaction. With the social, economic and technical needs and challenges, the healthcare and medical industry is continuously exploring these emerging technologies, applications and paradigms for improved, reliable, efficient, cost-effective, collaborative and secure multipurpose solutions.

ICTH 2015 brings together multi-disciplinary researchers, professionals and practitioners, who are involved in the fields of computing / information technology and healthcare. It encourages innovative research contributions providing the recent and significant developments and promising future trends of ICT based applications, systems, tools, environments and infrastructures in the fields of healthcare / medical care, and other similar domains, such as public health and pharmaceutical industry. ICTH 2015 will be held in conjunction with the 6th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN).

EUSPN-2015 is co-organized & hosted by the Technische Universität Berlin. The Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) is a research university, which is located in the city of Berlin, Germany. With roughly 30.000 students and over 8.000 employees, the TUB is one of the largest and most prestigious research and education institutions in Germany. The university was founded in 1879 through the merger of the Berlin College of Civil Engineering and the Royal College for Vocational Studies. The Technische Universität Berlin is a member of TU9, an incorporated society of the largest and most notable German institutes of technology. Furthermore, the TUB is a member of the Top Industrial Managers for Europe network, an organisation which allows for student exchange between leading European engineering schools. In 2013, the TUB was ranked 41st in the world in the world in the field of Engineering & Technology. The university is known for its high ranked engineering programmes. In total, the TUB covers roughly 600.000 m2, distributed over the city of Berlin. The main campus is located in the borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. The seven faculties, namely Humanities, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Process Sciences, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Transport Systems, Planning - Building - Environment, and Economics and Management, offer more than 50 subjects.

All ICTH-2015 accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on www.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will be indexed by Scopus (www.scopus.com) and by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index (http://thomsonreuters.com/conference-proceedings-citation-index/). The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/).
