1st International Workshop on HEAlthcare and Rehabilitation (HEAR) Held in Conjunction with the Cyber-living, Cyber-Syndrome and Cyber-Health
(CyberLife 2019)


The workshop will bring together researchers from both industry and academia from the various disciplines to contribute to the 1st International Workshop on Healthcare and Rehabilitation. The emerging enabling technologies, e.g., mobile edge/fog/cloud computing, smart robots, etc., will perform important roles in the development of next-generation healthcare and rehabilitation systems that smartly assist patients and elderly. However, these promising cyber-physical systems could bring various challenges in multidisciplinary research domains, including data analysis, security, machine learning (ML), biological sensors, soft robotics, medical prosthetics and so forth. Potential contributions include not only innovative design and development of infrastructures of cyber physical systems, medical prosthetics, biomechanical modeling and health monitoring software, but also health data mining using assistive technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) and ML for advancements can bring significant improvements for healthcare and rehabilitation.

This workshop will provide opportunities for researchers to discuss and present their latest work in the areas of healthcare and rehabilitation. These contributions could address state-of-the-art problems of connected healthcare applications, and the relevant topics include, but not limited to:
