EAI International Workshop on Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) Security

Background and Motivation:
A network of linked medical devices, sensors, and apps that gather and share data about health conditions is referred to as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Pervasive computing refers to an environment where computing capabilities are seamlessly integrated into everyday life and surroundings. Cybersecurity is putting safeguards in place to keep data, networks, and computer systems safe from damage, threats, and illegal access. Convergence of IoMT, Pervasive Computing, and Cybersecurity in these applications signifies a holistic approach to modernizing healthcare, improving patient outcomes, and ensuring the security and privacy of health data. This synergistic integration seeks to revolutionize patient care, enhance operational efficiency, and fortify the security and privacy of medical information. Collaborative efforts among healthcare professionals, technologists, and cybersecurity experts play a pivotal role in realizing the full potential of these integrated technologies in healthcare applications.

Topics and scope:
➢ Secure communication systems for emergency alerts in health care.
➢ Location-aware systems for efficient emergency services in health care.
➢ Wearable computing with fall detection for health research.
➢ Smart ambulances equipped with real-time patient monitoring.
➢ Smart pill dispensers for personalized medication management.
➢ Genetic testing and personalized health monitoring based on individual health profiles.
➢ Mobile apps for personalized health recommendations.
➢ Context-aware systems adapting interventions based on individual needs.
