Augmented Humanity using Wearable and Mobile Devices for Health and

MobileHCI'18, September 3rd - 6th, Barcelona, Spain

Nowadays we have witnessed the increased application of wearable and mobile
devices in remote care and preventive digital health programs through
integration of body-worn and ambient sensors into consumer electronics and
accessories. Among others, this workshop is to address the following topics:
1. what those body-worn and ambient sensors can be designed to detect human
health signals
2. what interface should be designed to interact with wearable health
3. what health signals should be collected for health diagnose and
wellbeing monitoring
how those data can be collected, analyzed and presented for early detection
of potential health issues and reliable monitoring of wellbeing.
This workshop is expected to bring technologists and health researchers and
professionals to exchange and discuss current state of the art of
developments of wearable and mobile technologies and their applications in
health and wellbeing, and set up and a R&D agenda for future research and
