IEEE International Conference on Orange Technologies
IEEE International Conference on Orange Technologies
The first ever World Happiness Report has been published recently by the United Nations, which reflects a new worldwide demand for more attention to happiness as criteria for government policy. This also calls upon science and technology in both natural and social domains to be developed for promoting a happy and healthy lifestyle in our modern society. Orange technology is a newly defined interdisciplinary research area for integration and innovation of health, happiness, and care technologies in order to meet this world trend. The research scope includes computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, psychological/physiological science, cognitive science, social science, and dechnology (design + technology). The representative color of orange technology originates from a harmonic fusion of red (representing brightness of health and happiness) and yellow (representing warming care). Instead of emphasizing the relations between environments and humans, as proposed by green technology, the objective of orange technology is to bring more health, happiness, warming care, and more mental wellness to the society.

The 2013 IEEE International Conference on Orange Technologies (ICOT 2013) sponsored by IEEE Tainan Section will be held in Tainan, Taiwan. The objective of this conference is to stimulate the establishment of orange technologies and to bring together scientists, engineers and other interdisciplinary professionals to share innovation ideas. With tutorial, keynote, special, and regular sessions, the ICOT 2013 aims to promote the research, developments and applications of bio-medical innovation and intelligent computing for orange technologies.
