Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our honor and joy to welcome you to the 4th International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare (MobiHealth 2014). It is a top priority of MobiHealth conference series to strengthen the synergy between researchers and experts from academia, healthcare organizations, research institutions and industry, to advance the research in the field of wireless communication and healthcare.
 
The scientific program for MobiHealth 2014 has been compiled to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving disciplines of wireless communications, mobile computing and sensing technologies in healthcare. Five keynote lectures by internationally renowned speakers and more than 110 original contributions within the framework of regular and special sessions and workshops will update our knowledge, understanding and practice in the interdisciplinary field of mobile healthcare applications. Collectively, we will share ideas and discuss cutting-edge research, present experience with recent developments in healthcare delivery, and provide practical guidance to policy makers and in the setting of applicable standards. Moreover, within the framework of Mobihealth 2014, a Satellite Event on Innovative Systems and Services will take place, featuring oral presentations, demos and exhibitions, placing particular emphasis on practical and commercial use of innovative services and products of successful EC funded research projects, enterprises and start-ups. 
 
The city of Athens, one of the world's oldest cities with a recorded history of more than 3.000 years, needs no introduction: today it unifies the plethora of antiquities with parks, pedestrian streets and avenues and therein accommodates a great variety of cultural events and a lively nightlife. Cultural activities may include visits to the numerous museums, archaeological sites, old theatres and ancient temples scattered through the Attica’s landscape, concerts and shows, as well as leisure visits to the flea market or taverns at Plaka just under the rock of the Acropolis. The conference venue situated in Vouliagmeni, the most exclusive area of the Athens Riviera, offers the chance to enjoy the charm of the famous Vouliagmeni lake with the mineral water spa, as well as the breathtaking Athenian coast. The weather in the very beginning of November is quite pleasant and the sea still warm, offering opportunities for swimming and other water activities, unique sightseeing and relaxing for participants and accompanying persons.
 
We are looking forward to welcoming you soon in Athens.
