International Workshop on Internet of Elderly People


Technological innovation seems to gain more and more media space and, above all, to be present in all areas of our lives, offering seemingly endless possibilities. When such reasoning is applied to health care, it is questionable whether, from the outset, such promises will not be pernicious themselves insofar as they generate expectations that are probably unattainable. On the other hand, and given the speed at which technological innovations enter the market, it is also necessary to question whether they respond to a predefined organizational strategy or models of care or whether they are dependent on them, thus contributing to the care and to generate or aggravate multiple iniquities, especially if the people we are talking about are elderly. In these assumptions, it is proposed the gathering of contributions that propose to align the elderly people capacity building with the technology advances in the area of integrated care home monitoring. The contributions should build upon the concepts of a patient oriented, GPRD Aware, highly interoperable for multi-level integrated care solutions.


In the recent decades, the raising of the medium life expectancy duration has had the pernicious efect of multiplying the multi-morbidity prevalence in the population. The co-ocurrence of different health conditions that have to be handled conciously of each other is one of the major fields in translational research involving both health professionals and technologists. One main contribution that can be done in the immediate are the adequate usage of ICT recent breakthroughs, namely in the Machine Learning and Edge Computing convergence. The IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) and the associated WoMT (Web of Medical Things) where the information fusion can be managed by semantic frameworks are ecloding and disseminating everywhere and present a wonderful opportunity to tackle the chalenges presented to everyday life of the elderly. We are inviting contributions from translational researchers to present their innovative contributions around the convergence of technological and care models that contribute to the Integrated Care Process.


This workshop will be focused on the following topics:

  • New techniques for integration of the Internet of Things, Internet of Services, Internet of People, Healthcare Knowledge representation, Open Data, Distributed Mobile Systems, (Mobile) Cloud Computing, (Mobile) Social Computing,(Mobile) Social Networks and Automated Deep Learning for home based care.
  • Co-Creation and Open Participation of people in home based care development.
  • Sensing devices and systems, Context-Awareness, (Mobile) Crowsensing techniques facilitating the gathering of the information, context and needs of the elderly and their living environment.
  • New Semantic Technologies, Data Fusion, Activity Recognition approaches for computing the assisted living environment gathered information.
  • Decision-Making, Proactive Devices and Self-Adaptive techniques allowing the adaptation of the home based assisted living systems to the elderly citizens’ needs.
  • Security and Privacy of the public data or the information gathered from the elderly.
