Submission Deadline: Jul 20, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: Aug 21, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due : Sep 21, 2020




The overall topic of the workshop is on the future of coaching systems for healthcare. The topic is of particular interest at this point of time since discussions on ICT-based coaching reached a maturity level that will transit in the next years from an emerging field to a consolidated one. In particular latest approaches focused on AI-supported coaching have succeeded to enter into the clinical domain discussions as an opportunity of empowering in one hand the citizens and in the other as a way to overcome limitations of healthcare systems such as lack of enough healthcare professionals through step-based approaches. The main need of establishing the future steps in research on this regard is that even if preliminary developments have demonstrated potential in this field, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. There is a need into further development to come to personalized, preventive, predictive and participative (P4) health care. As is still needed a more clear identification of potential benefits that confluence of technologies and methods may provide towards a more thorough definition of the research agenda in this domain.
