This conference, as its predecessors, will offer an opportunity for academics and professionals from a range of backgrounds and disciplines to come together and engage in an exchange of new research results covering the entire spectrum of field methods to assess the ongoing behaviour, physiology, experience and environmental aspects of people in naturalistic or unconstrained settings. The special focus of the conference on Digital Health has been chosen as its rapid growth - converging technologies, such as Internet applications, social networks, smartphones and wearable sensors – is now transforming our approach to health research, healthcare, and communication and access to information.
Luxembourg is a beautiful conference venue, situated in the heart of Europe, close to its neighbours France, Germany and Belgium. The conference will be hosted at the University’s new science campus Belval, which combines state-of-the-art facilities and ultra-modern architecture. Belval, one of the largest and most ambitious current urban renewal projects in Europe, is located about 20 km from Luxembourg City, 3 km from Esch-sur-Alzette (the country’s second largest town) and just 500 m from the French border. The vast site of 120 hectares brings together academic research and teaching, work and leisure, urban living and culture, thus making Belval an exciting place to work, study and live. Welcome to Luxembourg!
