KEYNOTE SPEAKER

 

Prof. Maged N. Kamel Boulos

 

Short bio:
Professor Maged N. Kamel Boulos is a British scientist and Chair of Digital Health at the University of the Highlands and Islands, Scotland, UK. He worked before that at Plymouth University, University of Bath and City University London. He has more than 26 years of combined clinical and informatics experience, spanning the clinical, industry and academic/research worlds (1990-2016). As well as his medical degree and Master’s in Clinical Dermatology, he holds a Master’s in Medical Informatics from King's College, University of London, and a PhD in Measurement & Information in Medicine (GIS) from City University London. Maged teaches and has >150 publications (h-index: 33) on a specialist range of medical/public health informatics and geoinformatics topics. He is Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy, and was Co-Chair of WG IV/4 within ISPRS Commission IV, 2008-2012. He served as Expert Adviser/External Expert for the WHO (European Office) and the ECDC. He is the founding editor (2001) and Editor-in-Chief of the MEDLINE-indexed Int J Health Geogr. His research received wide media coverage, and is/has been funded by national and international bodies, including World Health Organization EMRO and EURO; European Commission; UK TSB KTP Programme; UK AHRC; and Public Health Agency of Canada (funding one of his former PhD students).
 
Keynote topic:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is made of sensors and other components that connect our version of the world made of atoms, i.e., humans/our bodies, our devices, vehicles, roads, buildings, plants, animals, etc., with a mirror digital version made of bits. This enables cities and regions to be self-aware and dynamically reconfigurable in real- or near-real-time, based on changes that are continuously monitored and captured by diverse sensors. IoT-powered smart cities and less urbanised regions and the countryside stand better chances of becoming healthier and happier places to live in. We will discuss, with examples, the potential benefits (e.g., smarter communities that are socially connected in new ways), as well as the challenges and caveats (e.g., security and privacy issues) associated with IoT for cities and regions.

 

 

 

4th EAI International Conference on IoT Technologies for HealthCare

Scope

HealthyIoT 2017 is the fourth one of an international scientific event series dedicated to Internet of Things and Healthcare. The Internet of Things, as a set of existing and emerging technologies, notions and services, can provide many solutions to delivery of electronic healthcare, patient care and medical data management. HealthyIoT aims to bring together technology experts, researchers, industry and international authorities contributing towards the assessment, development and deployment of healthcare solutions based on IoT technologies, standards and procedures.

Highlight

  • The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.
  • All accepted papers will be submitted for publication in Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
  • Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: EI, ISI Thomson's Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI's own EU Digital Library (EUDL)
  • Best papers will be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Pervasive Health and Technology
