This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Well-Being in the Information Society, WIS 2016, held in Tampere, Finland, in September 2016.

The 21 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 42 submissions. With the core topic "Building Sustainable Health Ecosystems" WIS 2016 focused on innovations and fresh ideas in the cross-section of urban living, information society and health as understood in a wide sense. The papers presented in this volume are organized along the following seven broad topics: 1. Macro level considerations of e-health and welfare, 2.Welfare issues of children, youth, young elderly and seniors, 3. Analytics issues of eHealth and welfare, 4. National/regional initiatives in eHealth and welfare, and 5. Specific topics of eHealth. The papers in these topics span qualitative and quantitative analysis, empirical surveys, case studies as well as conceptual work.

This volume contains papers presented at the Fourth International Workshop on Mathematical Methods, Models and Architectures for Computer Network Security (MMM-ACNS 2007) held in St. Petersburg, Russia, during September 13–15, 2007. The workshop was organized by the St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS) in cooperation with Binghamton University (SUNY, USA). The organizers are proud that the MMM-ACNS workshops hosted by the St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation in 2001, 2003 and 2005 evolved into a bi-annual series recognized in the professional community. These events not only demonstrated the keen interest of the participating researchers in the subject matter and the opportunity to present and disseminate individual achievements, but also promoted the spirit of cooperation, camaraderie, free exchange of ideas, and intellectually stimulating interaction between colleagues. Again, MMM-ACNS 2007 provided an international forum for sharing or- inal research results among specialists in fundamental and applied problems of computer network security. An important distinction of the conference was its focus on mathematical aspects of information and computer network security addressing the ever-increasing demands for secure computing and highly - pendable computer networks. A total of 56 papers from 18 countries related to signi?cant aspects of both theory and applications ofcomputer networkand informationsecurity weres- mitted to MMM-ACNS 2007. In total, 18 papers were selected for regular p- sentationsand 12 for short presentations(32 % of acceptance for full papers and 53 % for all papers).
Pervasive healthcare is an emerging research discipline, focusing on the development and application of pervasive and ubiquitous computing technology for healthcare and wellness. Pervasive healthcare seeks to respond to a variety of pressures on healthcare systems, including the increased incidence of life-style related and chronic diseases, emerging consumerism in healthcare, need for empowering patients and relatives for self-care and management of their health, and need to provide seamless access for healthcare services, independent of time and place. Pervasive healthcare may be defined from two perspectives. First, it is the development and application of pervasive computing (or ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence) technologies for healthcare, health and wellness management. Second, it seeks to make healthcare available to anyone, anytime, and anywhere by removing locational, time and other restraints while increasing both the coverage and quality of healthcare. This book proposes to define the emerging area of pervasive health and introduce key management principles, most especially knowledge management, its tools, techniques and technologies. In addition, the book takes a socio-technical, patient-centric approach which serves to emphasize the importance of a key triumvirate in healthcare management namely, the focus on people, process and technology. Last but not least the book discusses in detail a specific example of pervasive health, namely the potential use of a wireless technology solution in the monitoring of diabetic patients.
This unifying volume offers a clear theoretical framework for the research shaping the emerging direction of informatics in health care. Contributors ground the reader in the basics of informatics methodology and design, including creating salient research questions, and explore the human dimensions of informatics in studies detailing how patients perceive, respond to, and use health data. Real-world examples bridge the theoretical and the practical as knowledge management-based solutions are applied to pervasive issues in information technologies and service delivery. Together, these articles illustrate the scope of health possibilities for informatics, from patient care management to hospital administration, from improving patient satisfaction to expanding the parameters of practice. Highlights of the coverage:

· Design science research opportunities in health care

· IS/IT governance in health care: an integrative model

· Persuasive technologies and behavior modification through technology: design of a mobile application for behavior change

· The development of a hospital secure messaging and communication platform: a conceptualization

· The development of intelligent patient-centric systems for health care

· An investigation on integrating Eastern and Western medicine with informatics

Interest in Theories to Inform Superior Health Informatics Research and Practice cuts across academia and the healthcare industry. Its audience includes healthcare professionals, physicians and other clinicians, practicing informaticians, hospital administrators, IT departments, managers, and management consultants, as well as scholars, researchers, and students in health informatics and public health.
