15th IEEE International Conference on e-Health Networking, Application & Services (IEEE HEALTHCOM 2013)
Lisbon, Portugal – October 09-12, 2013

IEEE Healthcom 2013 is fully sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society. It aims at bringing together interested parties from around the world working in the health care field to exchange ideas, to discuss innovative and emerging solutions, and to develop collaborations. eHealth is defined as the cost-effective and secure use of information and communications technologies in support of health and the related fields, including health-care related services, surveillance, literature, education, knowledge, and research, both at the local site and at a distance. It will make personalised medicine possible and affordable
 in the near future. The adoption of eHealth technologies in medical fields creates huge opportunities yet lots of challenges still need to be resolved to build reliable, secure, and efficient networks or platforms with great flexibility.

- Biomedical and biosensors engineering
- Body sensor networks and wearable sensor systems
- Clinical biofeedback, decision support systems, and tools
- eHealth information and network Infrastructure
- eHealth for public health (including disease prevention, emergency preparedness, epidemiologic interventions)
- eHealth for aging (to support quality of life for older adults, aging in place and independence) 
- Emerging eHealth applications
- Health grid and health cloud
- Health monitoring, traffic
 characterisation, & management
