On the behalf of the Organizing Committee, we give a very warm welcome to BigHealth-2016, the Joint International Conference of Big Data Analytics in Health Informatics 2016 (BDAHI 2016) and the 13th International Conference on Ubiquitous Healthcare (u-Healthcare 2016), which will be held Oct. 29-30, 2016 at the University of Aizu, Aizu Wakamatsu, Japan.
Since the first meeting in 2004, the annual u-Healthcare has been a focus of communication and discussion of current progress on ubiquitous healthcare technologies worldwide. DBAHI 2016 is the first international conference focusing on big data analytics in healthcare domain.
Enhancing welfare for the future requires the strategic change from "recovery from illness" to "maintaining wellness and improving quality of life". Seamless monitoring of various vital data in daily life environments and comprehensive interpretation of their physiological information are of equal importance.
BigHealth-2016 is devoted to promoting ICT-based ubiquitous-Healthcare and the pressing challenge of big data analytics in deep-mining physiological significance from huge mountains of vital data collected by diverse modalities. BigHealth-2016 will provide an excellent opportunity for academic researchers and industrial partners as well as policy makers to discuss state-of-the-art advancements, to understand the problems we are currently facing, to exchange innovative ideas, and to anticipate the bright future in relevant domains.
The University of Aizu is the first and largest ICT-dedicated University in Japan. The Aizu region is well-known as a han (feudal clan) enthusiastic for education.
Aizu Wakamatsu is located in the central area of Japan and is blessed with a rich natural environment such as Mount Bandai and Lake Inawashiro, as well as a strong sense of history and numerous legacies of the samurai era such as Tsuruga-jo castle and Oyakuen herb garden. Autumn is a good season to enjoy splendid maple trees all over the region.
We would like to send a sincere welcome to all of you who might be interested in these critical topics, and look forward to your joining BigHealth-2016.
