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 2020 brings together multi-disciplinary researchers, professionals and practitioners from both academia and industry, 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. The ICTH-2020 will be held in conjunction with The 11th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN).
