ICOST 2018 invites participants to present and discuss their experiences in the design, development, deployment and evaluation of technologies that demonstrate significant contributions in the areas of smart cities, smart homes, health telematics, chronic disease management and assistive technologies focused on indoor living spaces (e.g., homes, nursing homes and assistive living facilities) as well as the outdoors (e.g., urban smart spaces or the entire smart city). ICOST 2018 will provide a dynamic program which will incorporate a range of technical, clinical and industrial related international keynote speeches, panels, and oral and poster presentations along with demonstrations and technical exhibits.

Proposals for special sessions or plenary panels addressing any of the following specific topics are especially welcome:

    Studies detailing large-scale service deployment and impact evaluation
    The application of cost-effective and readily available ‘everyday’ technologies to support elders, people with chronic conditions and others with cognitive disabilities at home, school, work or play
    Health economic evaluation of technology based solutions
    Challenges for truly ‘smart living environments and inclusive communities
    Societal impact and policy formulation
    Technology solutions to inspire policy makers
