About Us


We are asked to make a lot of decisions about our health these days. The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is changing healthcare. Experts are predicting rapid growth in IoMT adoption. Thus, the industry needs to prepare to harness the technology for value-based care. However, health systems confront challenges, such as security, interoperability, and analytics to meet their promise of helping expand access to care, improve quality, and reduce cost.


The workshop on Internet of Medical Things focuses on Internet of Things technologies for healthcare. The event is a good opportunity to bring together practitioners and researchers from both academia and industry. The aim is to have a forum for discussion and technical presentations on the recent advances in theory, application and implementation of the IoT and IoE concepts in the healthcare domain. The workshop consists of one a day meeting. The program includes theoretical lectures and encompasses various spin off subject of IoMT.


The Workshop on the Internet of Medical Things: IoMT 2018, will take place in Tunisia, Sfax at the Faculty of Science (FSS).

3MT competition

My thesis in 180 seconds

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition or 180s competition, is a competition held in IoMT workshop. Who Can Apply? It is open to PhD students and recent less a year PhD to present their research in just 180 seconds. It allows competitors to present a concise statement of their research interests and experience to be shared informally and orally. the 3MT competition is an excellent opportunity to share valuable experience and knowledge in the field of IoMT, and promote their research work.

Keynote Speakers

Yassine Aribi

Received the B. S. Degree in Computer Science applied in the management from the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management of Sfax (FSEG) in 2002, the M. S. in Novel Technologies for Computer Systemsfrom the National Engineering School of Sfax (ENIS) in 2011 and the PhD degree in Computer Science from the National Engineering School of Sfax (ENIS), Tunisia in 2015. In 2003, he joined Gabès University, where he is a common trunk professor in the Department of Computer Science, and a research member in the Research Groups on Intelligent Machines (REGIM) from 2010. In 2015, he joined the University of Monastir, where he is currently an assistant at the Higher Institute of computer science of Mahdia(Tunisia). His research include Medical images processing using intelligent tools.

Walid Labidi

Received the higher technician diploma in computer science and communication, the national diploma in computer science and the professional master's degree in network administration from the Faculty of Science of Sfax (FSS), Tunisia, in June 2007, June 2009 and July 2011 respectively. He is a Linux LPIC 101 trainer and IoT trainer since 2017 in a private company. He occupied a position of assistant professor, tenure-track in FSS from 2011 to 2017. He animated as a speaker many scientific events such as IoT day (FSS) and Workshop FORUM-IOT-ENIG (National School of Engineers of Gabes). He is a supervisor of many student works (Smart City, Study and simulation of the CoAP protocol,..).
Walid will talk about IoT technologies and animate a practical session about WSN to IoT.

Afef Benjemmaa

Has a master's degree in new technology dedicated computer systems (NTSID). She is member of the REGIM laboratory, ENIS, University of Sfax, Tunisia. She is an assistant professor in computer sciences in the Faculty of Art and Science of Aula, Saudi Arabia. She focuses her research on decision support systems, remote health care, multi-agent systems, knowledge discovery from data, human–computer interaction and visualization. Her application domain is Heart disease. She is an IEEE Student member.
Implementing complex healthcare systems and collecting medical data as well as their analysis are, in general, difficult and present a big challenge for IoT researchers. An interesting solution is “simulating the process”. In this context comes this presentation. Its main idea is the description of IoT devices and how we can simulate them for preparing a database to the system.
