Welcome to SCAH 2019!

This one-day, hands-on and thought provoking workshop at ISWC 2019 aims to explore the opportunities and obstacles for Smart Clothing in healthcare, and to identify the grand challenges for researchers in this area.

Update 27-08-2019: We are finalizing the program for the workshop, but we can already announce three highly inspiring keynote speakers. Check out the program page to find out who they are!

Who are we looking for?
We are seeking for synergistic contributions from a wide array of participants, e.g., from healthcare practice, engineering and healthcare research, clothing design, human factors, and human-computer interaction. Specifically, we invite potential participants to submit a position paper outlining their perspective on the opportunities and challenges for smart clothing in healthcare (though joining the workshop without a submission is possible too).

What will we do?
We strongly encourage participants to bring their own examples of smart clothing (targeted at addressing healthcare challenges) and/or devices they currently use in clinical practice. These demonstrators will serve as a starting point for focused discussions on particular aspects related to smart clothing and healthcare. As a result of this workshop, we aim to draft a “Grand Challenges: Smart Clothing and Healthcare” position document that can serve as a future research agenda.
