Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence are evolving and
playing a vital role in the advancement of the modern Computing and
Information Technology research. They encompass a broad range of aspects,
such as mobile and wireless computing, wearable computing, sensor based
systems, context aware computing, RFIDs, distributed computing, artificial
intelligence, virtual reality and human computer interaction. These
technological aspects have a significant impact on various industries in
our society, and healthcare is one of them. With the social, economical and
technical needs and challenges, the healthcare and medical industry is
continuously exploring and exploiting these emerging technologies,
applications and paradigms for improved, reliable, efficient,
cost-effective, collaborative and secure multi-purpose solutions.

This workshop (PASTH 2012) aims to bring together the multi-disciplinary
researchers, professionals and practitioners from both academia and
industry, who are involved in the fields of computing / information
technology and healthcare / medical care. It encourages innovative research
contributions providing the recent and significant developments of mobile /
pervasive / ambient applications, systems, technologies, environments and
infrastructures in the fields of healthcare / medical care, and other
similar domains, such as public health and pharmaceutical industry.
