Brief Bio
Vitor Carvalho received in 2008 his PhD in degree in industrial electronics, in the option of industrial informatics. He is currently working as associate professor at the Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave (IPCA), Barcelos, Portugal as well as integrated researcher of the Applied Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (2Ai) at IPCA being colaborator of the Algoritmi Research Centre at Minho University. He is also currently the Dean of the School of Technology (IPCA). His main fields of interest are related with data acquisition systems and serious games.


Wearable HealthCare is part of the actual human daily life. Nowadays, we are able to find them practically everywhere, as integrated, among others, in our homes, body, mobile devices and vehicles, with the objective of improving our safety, comfort, performance and quality of life.

We invite investigators, academics and professionals to submit original research and review articles that will contribute to the dissemination of Wearable HealthCare in the Engineering domain.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to smart healthcare applied to:
- Mobile healthcare;
- Home healthcare;
- Wearable healthcare;
- In-Car healthcare;
- Body sensor/area networks;
- “Intelligent” medical devices and systems;
- Ambient assistive living;
- Tele-healthcare.
