About ICDM Workshop

on Data Mining for the Healthy Aging (DHA)

17 Nov. 2020
09:00 am

The IEEE ICDM Workshop on Data Mining for the Healthy Aging (DHA) explores the challenges imposed by a rapidly aging population. Advances in medicine, infrastructure, and our society as a whole have increased the average human life expectancy significantly. The growing number of people aged 60 years and over poses new and unique challenges to our society which we can only tackle together. The goal of DHA is to provide a platform for research related to all aspects of data mining and our aging population. This includes but is not limited to the following topics: Healthy Aging, Eldercare, Mobility, Financial and Economic aspects, Lifestyle and Quality of Life, Work and Engagement, Diseases, End of Life.
