Ambient Assisted Technologies and techniques with the smart devices have evolved into an active area of research and development in healthcare systems. This is due to the healthcare system that faces diverse and complex everyday challenges, ranging from used equipment and drug inventory management to patients’ records. In addition to these challenges are patient monitoring, scheduling and follow-up managements in hospitals, homes and nursing homes, as well as providing the appropriate transportation.

AATCare aims to bring together people from both academia and industry for original discussions and to prompt future directions in the development of new techniques and strategies for healthcare. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Context and situation awareness

Human-Agent Interactions

Human-Computer Interactions

Intelligent data fusion and aggregation

Intelligent query and data dissemination

Intelligent systems in hospitals

Knowledge modeling and reasoning

Mobile peer-to-peer systems for healthcare

Patients diagnosis and monitoring systems

Patients transportations

Recommender systems for healthcare

Robotics in healthcare

Secure systems using smart techniques for healthcare

Security, trust and privacy in healthcare

Sensors and actuators for healthcare

Simulation tools and methods for healthcare

Smart sensors for healthcare

Smart systems for patient care

Software agents in healthcare
