+++ International Workshop on Intelligent Healthcare Solutions  
(IHS'11)  +++

held at the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
July 18-21, 2011
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA



Submission Deadline: March 27, 2011

Notification of Acceptance: April 10,  2011

Camera-Ready Papers: April 24, 2011



Within the last years a variety of new healthcare concepts for  
supporting and assisting users in technology-enhanced environments  
emerged. These intelligent healthcare solutions are characterized by a  
combined use of information and communication technologies and health  
monitoring devices. The spectrum of emerging technical applications  
covers a broad variety of developments, reaching from internal  
technologies (implants for monitoring physiological signals) over  
devices integrated into clothes (wearable technologies) to healthcare  
robots or smart home technologies, which support older people in  
keeping up their independent life at home. Nevertheless, practical  
experience shows, that the brilliance and novelty of technical  
solutions does not guarantee the successful diffusion of these  
innovations. The success of (future) healthcare technologies depends  
decisively on the extent to which technical developments meet the  
specific needs and wants of users as well as their willingness to use  
and integrate the devices into their personal spaces.

In order to fully exploit the potential of smart healthcare  
technologies, not only aspects of technical feasibility have to be  
considered. Intelligent healthcare technologies substantially depend  
on the patients’ acceptance to use them. Therefore, this workshop aims  
to bring together researchers from different disciplines to discuss  
the interrelation of medical, technical, and social factors and their  
consequences for the design, use and acceptance of intelligent  
healthcare systems.

Interested researchers are invited to submit a paper (2-4 pages, IEEE  
format) to the workshop organizers ([log in to unmask] 
) until March 27, 2011. The papers should focus on current research  
activities and/or interesting aspects of future work. All papers will  
be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on their novelty, originality,  
and relevance to the workshop theme. Authors of accepted position  
papers will be notified until April 15, 2011. Accepted workshop papers  
will be published in the ICAI conference proceedings. The workshop  
will be held at ICAI'11, July 18-21, 2011 in Las Vegas, USA.
