1st Workshop on
Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things
for Digital Health (AIIOT4DH)

 in conjunction with the

IEEE/ACM Conference on Connected Health Applications,
Systems, and Engineering Technologies


December 16 – 17, 2021 Washington D.C., USA

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are hot and well-established technologies now, and integrating them is becoming a common practice. The implementation of innovative solutions in healthcare is nowadays fundamental, AI and IoT are therefore strong drivers of the digital transformation. Combining AI and IoT will improve operational effectiveness and efficiency in the Digital Health domain. Specifically, new AI and IoT solutions can fully support medical staff, patients, and inventory tracking, chronic disease management, drug management, emergency room wait time reduction, remote health control. 

In this workshop, we are interested in receiving submissions related to innovative research, technical use cases, and project demonstrators covering one or more of the following main topics (not limited to):

  • AI and IoT for medical diagnostics
  • AI and IoT for wearable computing systems
  • AI and IoT for chronic disease management
  • AI and IoT for emergency room logistics
  • AI and IoT for privacy and trust in healthcare
  • AI and IoT for pandemic management
  • AI and IoT for health safety at work
  • Applications of smart environments for healthcare organization management
