Second International Conference on ICT for Health, Accessibility and

Wellbeing (IHAW 2022)


December 5-7, 2022, Golden Bay Beach Hotel 5*, Larnaca, Cyprus


ICT for Health, Accessibility and Wellbeing (IHAW 2022) is the second of the

series of International Conferences on "ICT for Societal Challenges". It is a

showcase for high quality oral and poster presentations and demonstrations

sessions. This conference aims to be a platform for multi and interdisciplinary

research at the interplay between Information and Communication

Technologies, Biomedical, Neuro-cognitive, and Experimental research.


This research includes the design, experimental evaluation and

standardization of new ICT scalable systems and in-silico systems for new

and future inclusive and sustainable technologies that benefit all: healthy

people, people with disabilities or other impairments, people having chronic

diseases, etc. User-centered design and innovation, new intuitive ways of

human -computer interaction, and user acceptance are the topics of

particular interest.



Conference Topics


Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the following:


Artificial Intelligence, Computation and Data Analytics

• Artificial Intelligence methods for medical device testing.

• Algorithms, methods and services for condition-specific intervention (e.g., 

diabetes, obesity, dementia, post cancer treatment, allergies, mental health).

• Algorithms, methods and services for predicting and monitoring infectious disease.

• Crowd-sourcing and social media analysis for predicting and monitoring infectious


• Medical Data and/or Medical Image Analysis.

• Electronic Medical Records Analysis.

• Computational methods for medical devices.


Human Computer Interaction and Cognition

• Human-Machine Interaction for healthcare and well-being.

• Cognitive Mechatronics for healthcare and well-being.

• Models for human-device interaction for medicine.

• Cobotics for healthcare and well-being.

• Model-based design and configuration tools for healthcare and well-being.


Assistive Devices

• Precision medicine.

• ICT for in-silicon trials.

• Implantable medical devices.

• Multimodal assistive ICT devices to empower people with sensory, cognitive,

motor, balance and spatial impairments.


ICT & Wellbeing

• Age-friendly systems for active and healthy ageing (telepresence, robotics

solutions, innovative solutions for independent living, innovative elderly care,

integrated care, age-related risks prevention/detection).

• ICT systems to improve the quality of life and for daily life activities assistance 

(education, recreation, and nutrition).

• Smart living homes and wearables (Intelligent and personalized digital solutions

for sustaining and extending healthy and independent living; personalized early risk

detection and intervention).

• Smart Systems and services promoting access to the socio-economical and cultural


• IoT and smart real-time surveillance systems for monitoring, auditing and control

to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

• eHealth smart solutions in the fight against a COVID-19 like pandemic.

• IoT and Smart Healthcare systems with an environmentally friendly and sustainable 



Health Infrastructure and Healthcare Operation Services

• Distributed and connected digital healthcare services.

• IoT services for real-time monitoring of health data and status of patients and/or 

older adults.

• Wearable devices and IoT systems for remote monitoring of health data and status

of patients and/or older adults.

• mHealth services and applications using mobile and wearable devices to collect 

community and clinical health data, and deliver healthcare information to 

practitioners, researchers and patients.

• Sustainable city environments for emergency health management.

• 5G and beyond for healthcare in sustainable smart cities.

• Wireless Sensor Networks for advanced smart healthcare in sustainable cities.


Quality in Healthcare Systems

• New experimental validation methods with end-users.

• Systems and services for ensuring patient’s commitment to the medication 


Digital health systems and tools for health care professional training and

workforce development.

• Communication systems and services improving the quality of patient and 

healthcare provider contact before, during and after admission.

• Methods and Technology for Improving the quality of services-oriented care

delivery systems.

• Methods, Digital Tools and/or Services for inclusive-for-all healthcare systems.

• Co-Creation of healthcare systems for social well being of people with special 

needs, older adults and/or deprivileged or disadvantaged people.

• Systems for management of health and care (mental health, pain, neurological 

disorders, sight, hearing, balance, space awareness; sensory based physiological

and psychological non-invasive measurements, preventive healthcare, m-healthcare, 

e-healthcare, integrated care, serious games, electronic health record, self-

management, patient-centered systems for survivorship, palliation and/or

end-of-life care).


Privacy, Security & Standardization

• Standardization, certification, labelling, and communication issues (related to 

ageing well, to sensory impairment).

• Privacy and Security/Regulation compliant services in health care systems (e.g., 


• Security and privacy of digital health systems and service.

• Socio-economic issues of smart healthcare in sustainable societies.

• Privacy, security and ethics in eHealth smart solutions and surveillance at scale in

the fight against a COVID-19 pandemic.


High-quality original submissions that address such future issues, show the

design and evaluation in (near-) real scenarios, explain how to benchmark

systems, and outline the education and training procedures for acquiring new

perceptual skills while using such systems are welcome. Research and technical 

papers are expected to present significant and original contributions validated with

the targeted end-users.


Submissions should clearly state the progress beyond the existing state-of-

the-art and the expected societal benefits of the developed technology. When

possible, validate scenarios with the target user groups and well-identified

technology readiness levels


should be at least outlined.





We invite Research and Technical papers, up to 15 pages, describing original

unpublished research, making a substantial contribution to the research field.


All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. As was the case for

IHAW 2021, the proceedings of IHAW 2022 will be published by Springer in the

Communications in  Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series

( and will be presented in the technical

sessions of the conference.


As was also the case for IHAW 2021, the authors of the best papers accepted for 

IHAW2022 will be invited to submit extended versions for a special issue in a high

quality journal (currently under negotiation).


Submissions of all types should be carefully formatted according to the

Springer format for conference proceedings: .


The submission process will be handled through Easy Chair and the

submission link is: .
