The International Conference on Digital Wellbeing is the premier event on digital wellbeing. The event is a place where researchers and practitioners gather from across the world to discuss the latest in digital wellbeing technologies and approaches.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli.

Conference Focus

EIT Digital looks at technologies like predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, accurate sensing, chatbots, gamification to enable digital solutions targeting the young to prevent or detect mental and physical issues in an early phase (e.g. depression, overweight, obesity). Environmental sensing and remote diagnosis are used to develop solutions coping with urban and environmental issues (e.g. air pollution, infectious diseases, stress) affecting the health of the elderly or other vulnerable people (e.g. with chronic diseases).

For health insurers, corporate health programmes, home care- and assisted living providers, nursing homes, and hospitals EIT Digital identifies solutions based on virtual wards, remote unobtrusive monitoring, artificial intelligence (analytics, predictions), robotization (social-mental, help for health professionals), offering on-demand digital solutions offering personalised health & wellbeing services.
