The theme of this seminar is the use of ICT in the wellness and healthcare
sector, now and in the future. The seminar is organized as part of the Tivit
Services Shok project and EIT ICT Labs. The seminar is meant for companies and

sector. Philips Healthcare will discuss the concept of software product lines,
and its application for the compositional platform that underpins their range
