This year we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of ICOST which succeeded in bringing together a community from different continents over a decade and half and raised the awareness of frail and dependant people's quality of life in our societies.
After fourteen very successful conferences held in France (2003), Singapore (2004), Canada (2005), Northern Ireland (2006), Japan (2007), USA (2008), France (2009), Korea (2010), Canada (2011), Italy (2012), Singapore (2013), USA (2014), Switzerland (2015) and China (2016), the 15th International Conference on Smart homes, Assistive Technologies and Health Telematics will be hosted in Paris, from 29th to 31st August 2017.
ICOST provides a premier venue for the presentation and discussion of research in the design, development, deployment and evaluation of Smart Urban Environments, Assistive Technologies, Chronic Disease Management, Coaching and Health Telematics systems. ICOST brings together stakeholders from clinical, academic and industrial perspectives along with end users and family caregivers to explore how to utilize technologies to foster independent living and offer an enhanced quality of life. ICOST 2017 invites participants to present and discuss their experience in design, development, deployment and evaluation of assistive and telehealth systems, as well as ethical and policy issues. The conference features a dynamic program incorporating a range of technical, clinical and industrial related keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations along with demonstrations and technical exhibits.
We look forward to welcoming you to ICOST2017 in Paris!
