On the behalf of the Organizing Committee, may we give a very warm welcome to u-Healthcare 2013, which will be held in Yokohama, Japan, in conjunction with Life 2013. Yokohama was one of the first port to be opened to foreign trade in 1859.

Since our first conference u-Healthcare 2004, this annual meeting has been the site for the communication and discussion of current progress on ubiquitous healthcare technologies. u-Healthcare 2013 is the 10th annual international conference mainly devoted for the promotion of ubiquitous-Healthcare based on rapidly progressing information communication technologies. Enhancement in the welfare for future requires the change to the current healthcare system. Our concern for the healthcare is shifting from ‘recovery from illness’ to ‘maintaining the wellness and improving the quality of life’. For the care of daily health level we need special kinds of methods and technologies that we can be applied into our daily life smoothly. In this point, u-Healthcare 2013 will provide an excellent opportunity for academic researchers and industrial representatives as well as decision makers to discuss the state-of-the-art and trends of u-Healthcare and related biomedical engineering supports.

I would like to send a particular welcome to those of you who might be interested in the u-Healthcare area. This conference offers a wonderful opportunity to understand the problems and exchange ideas about your work in organized sessions and also in an informal, relaxed setting.
