Intelligent System and Applications in Healthcare (ISA’Health 2018)

Intelligent System and Applications in Healthcare (ISA’Health 2018)


The main goal of this workshop is presenting innovative and exciting works and promoting the discussion about how the Intelligent Systems can contribute to improve the quality of the decision process in healthcare. This workshop involves all the topics associated to Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Human-computer Interaction or Virtual Reality when applied to healthcare.The researchers are also challenged to show how an entertainment environment and the use of intelligent systems can contribute to improving patient quality. The solutions / technologies / application proposed should innovative and interactive and capable of supporting the social needs and the Healthcare decision support.
ISA’Health 2018 will bring together the researchers who are working in the area of Intelligent System and Data Science. The cross-domain integration and appraisal of different fields related to Intelligent Systems and Applications provide an atmosphere to foster a variety of perspectives and opinions.

The workshop is framed in the main conference topics with the primary focus in Intelligent Technologies but applied to a specific area, healthcare.


This workshop is looking for new and innovative ways to support the decision process in healthcare taking advantages from the use of intelligent systems and applications. ISA’Health is a good opportunity to researchers disseminate their contributions and presenting new and useful solutions to the community.
