    First International Conference on ICT for Health, Accessibility and

    Wellbeing (IHAW 2021)

    November 8-10, 2021, Golden Bay Hotel 5*, Larnaca, Cyprus

    (Proceedings to be published by Springer)

    ICT for Health, Accessibility and Wellbeing (IHAW 2021) is the first of the

    series of International Conferences on "ICT for Societal Challenges". It is a

    showcase for high quality oral and poster presentations and demonstrations

    sessions. This conference aims to be a platform for multi and interdisciplinary

    research at the interplay between Information and Communication

    Technologies, Biomedical, Neuro-cognitive, and Experimental research.

    This research includes the design, experimental evaluation and

    standardization of new ICT scalable systems and in-silico systems for new

    and future inclusive and sustainable technologies that benefit all: healthy

    people, people with disabilities or other impairments, people having chronic

    diseases, etc. User-centered design and innovation, new intuitive ways of

    human -computer interaction, and user acceptance are the topics of

    particular interest.

    Conference Topics

    Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

    • AI and Cognition, Cognitive Mechatronics, Human-Machine Interaction,

    Cobotics, Model-based design and configuration tools for healthcare and

    well-being, AI methods for medical device testing

    • Systems for management of health and care (mental health, pain,

    neurological disorders, sight, hearing, balance, space awareness; sensory

    based physiological and psychological non-invasive measurements,

    preventive healthcare, m-healthcare, e-healthcare, integrated care, serious

    games, electronic health record, self-management, patient-centered systems

    for survivorship, palliation and/or end-of-life care)

    • Precision medicine

    • ICT for in-silico trials

    • Implantable medical devices

    • Computational methods for medical device

    • Models for human-device interaction for medicine

    • Systems promoting access to the socio-economical and cultural


    • Age-friendly systems for active and healthy aging (telepresence, robotics

    solutions, innovative solutions for independent living, innovative elderly care,

    integrated care, age-related risks prevention/detection)

    • Multimodal assistive ICT devices to empower people with sensory,

    cognitive, motor, balance and spatial impairments

    • ICT systems to improve the quality of life and for daily life activities

    assistance (education, recreation, and nutrition)

    • Smart living homes and wearables (Intelligent and personalized digital

    solutions for sustaining and extending healthy and independent living;

    personalized early risk detection and intervention)

    • New experimental validation methods with end-users

    • Standardization, certification, labeling, privacy, security and communication

    issues (related to aging well, to sensory impairment)

    High-quality original submissions that address such future issues, show the

    design and evaluation in (near-) real scenarios, explain how to benchmark

    systems, and outline the education and training procedures for acquiring new

    perceptual skills while using such systems are welcome.

    Research and technical papers are expected to present significant and original

    contributions validated with the targeted end-users. Early works and works-

    in-progress are invited to submit a short or demo paper.

    Submissions should clearly state the progress beyond the existing state-of-

    the-art and the expected societal benefits of the developed technology. When

    possible, validate scenarios with the target user groups and well-identified

    technology readiness levels


    should be at least outlined.


    We invite three types of paper submissions:

    1. Research and Technical papers, up to 15 pages, describing original

    unpublished research, making a substantial contribution to the research field

    2. Short papers, up to 6 pages, describing original unpublished research,

    making a small but solid contribution to the field

    3. Demos, up to 4 pages, describing innovative tools that address topics

    relevant to the conference

    All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted

    contributions will appear in the archival proceedings of IHAW 2021,

    published by Springer in the Communications in Computer and Information

    Science (CCIS) series (,

    and will be presented in plenary sessions of the conference.

    The authors of the best papers accepted for IHAW2021 will be invited to

    submit extended versions for a journal special issue (currently under


    Submissions of all types should be carefully formatted according to the

    Springer format for conference proceedings:

    and should specify on the first page the type of submission ("R&T", "Short",

    "Demo"). The submission process will be handled through Easy Chair and the

    submission link is: .
