ICOST 2020 welcomes high quality technical papers that describe original, completed or on-going, unpublished research. Submissions should report concrete, significant, and transferable results that help advance the state of the art in smart homes, assistive technologies and health telematics.
The ICOST 2020 Program will be a combination of presentations including scientific papers, posters and technology demonstrations.
