This workshop continues the line of UbiHealth workshops previously organized at Ubicomp conferences in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2010.

The workshop's major theme will be relationship between behaviour and health. The topics will be centred on measuring and sensing behaviour, its correlation with overall physical and mental health, prediction of disorders/episodes from the measured behaviour and effects of persuasion on behaviour change. A specific objective of the workshop will be discussion of the latest findings on the relationship between physical behaviour and mental health. Considering that mental disorders affect around a quarter of all people at some point in their life and that these disorders are universal, affecting all countries and societies, and individuals of all ages, there is a significant need to discuss the latest findings and further advance this research area.
