ICTH is a premier venue for bringing together multi-disciplinary
researchers, professionals and practitioners from academia and healthcare
who are engaged in different facets of ICT and healthcare. The conference
encourages innovative research contributions providing the recent
significant developments and promising future trends of ICT based
applications, systems, tools, environments and infrastructures in the
fields of health/medical care, and related domains, such as public health
and pharmaceuticals. Papers on either completed or ongoing research are
invited in the following and related topics of interests.

Lund University is a strong influence on Lund city, and several university
buildings are located in the heart of the city. The combination of
businesses, students and researchers from around the world has given birth
to Lund's unique character as a city of strong research-based global
industries. The Malmö region, including Lund, is the 4th most inventive
region in the world. Sweden’s first and most successful research park,
Ideon, is situated in Lund, and the country’s two largest research
ventures, MAX IV Laboratory and the European Spallation Source (ESS) are
located here. The students at Lund University comprise a large part of the
population of the city and consequently have a significant impact on it and
contribute to the youthful, laid-back atmosphere. The young population
influences all aspects of life in Lund, from the daily rhythm of the city,
to city planning, pubs and bars, museums and countless cultural and leisure
activities. The combination of old traditions and history together with the
bustling student life makes Lund a great place to live and study!
