Third International Workshop on Mobile Technology for Healthcare (MT4H 2018)
In conjunction with

The 16th IEEE International Conference on Smart City

                                                       (SmartCity – 2018)

Exeter, England, UK, 28 – 30 June, 2018

One of the most promising mobile technology application areas  is healthcare. Some recent advances in mobile, Internet-based and wireless technologies have supported smart solutions for delivering improved healthcare. Use of mobile technology for healthcare and wellbeing has proved to be cost effective and accessible in most countries, including low income countries.  From ambient/assisted living to access to healthcare, mobile technology promises to transform  healthcare services for all who require support and care. This transformation is accompanied by a set of challenges related to developing platforms/infrastructure, frameworks, devices and software solutions to enable safe and secure mobile care delivery.

The MT4H workshop aims at providing a forum for discussion and sharing of research promoting all aspects of the mobile solutions for healthcare. Original research papers are invited on all aspects related to m-health, from smart ubiquitous environments to mobile apps, devices and systems applications in healthcare. Practical implementation, deployment and management solutions from the healthcare industry (including the NHS trusts) are also of interest.


Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • m-Health
