Track Description:
The wide deployments of mobile and wireless technologies, especially smart phones and wireless sensor networks (WSN), have increasingly affected different facets of our life such as healthcare and education. At the same time, the significant increase in the number of smart phone users has created new opportunities for real time information as well as location based content sharing by combining them with available web services. There is a need to apply robust research findings in the application of mobile technology in healthcare and in the development of appropriate teaching strategies that will utilize mobile technology in the classroom. Mobile services for future education and healthcare have become a required research subject in both practitioners and academic researchers.

We are pleased to announce and invite manuscripts for joint AHLiST conference from researchers and practitioners on mobile and wireless technologies for education and healthcare. The purpose is to promote discussion and interaction among academics, researchers and professionals in the field. We expect and encourage a wide diversity of subjects across education and healthcare in mobile contexts.
