The 2016 International Workshop on Personalisation and Adaptation in Technology for Health (PATH 2016) will be held in conjunction with the 24th Conference on User Modelling, Adaptation and Personalisation (UMAP 2016) in Halifax, Canada (13-17 July 2016)
We have reached a critical point in Healthcare where professionals and patients have the technology to adopt personalised health support. The World Health Organisation has recognised the importance of this industry. This full day workshop will showcase innovative user modelling, personalisation and adaptation research that focuses on promoting access, improving efficiency and enhancing quality using technology within healthcare. It aims to connect the more theoretical work in user modelling and personalisation with the more grounded needs of healthcare workers and manufacturers to promote research that is timely, innovative, and focused on the needs of users.
It builds on six previous workshops presented at UM 2005, UM 2007, 21st IEEE CBMS (2008), AIME 2009 and EHealth 2010, PATH 2015 as well as the special issue on Personalisation for E-Health in UMUAI 2011.
