After the successful 3rd Worldwide Meeting of Young Academies (WWMYA) hosted by the South African Young Academy of Science (SAYAS)in Johannesburg, South Africa in July 2017, we are delighted to announce that the 4th WWMYA will be hosted by Vietnam Young Academy in the beautiful Da Nang city in Vietnam from 29th July to 2nd August 2019. WWMYAs aim to enhance and facilitate ideas exchange on the establishment and development of National Young Academies (NYAs) and to strengthen networking and collaboration between NYAs on a global level. The meeting is organized in conjunction with a 2 days scientific meeting on Nanomaterials for Healthcare. Cancers and infectious diseases are the two most deadly diseases in Vietnam, and nanotechnology is one of its research focuses.

Currently many different applications areas for Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are being explored. A particularly promising application area for VR/AR is Healthcare and Medicine. Various use-cases for this application area are being researched and developed, software applications are already being published and used in various settings from education and training to patient assessments and diagnoses, treatments and operations. However, we do not have a clear overview how effective these are, nor whether these software solutions are adequate replacements or additions in the long-term. Additionally, combining VR/AR technologies with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will provide powerful, largely unexplored application areas that will revolutionize Healthcare and Medicine practice. The main purposes of this special session are to allow researchers, software developers and practitioners to showcase novel use-cases and applications, present empirical research results from user-centered qualitative and quantitative experiments of these new applications, and facilitate a discussion forum to explore the latest trends in new VR/AR Healthcare and Medicine applications.

The CDIO™ INITIATIVE is an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers. The framework provides students with an education stressing engineering fundamentals set in the context of Conceiving - Designing - Implementing - Operating (CDIO) real-world systems and products. Throughout the world, CDIO Initiative collaborators have adopted CDIO as the framework of their curricular planning and outcome-based assessment. CDIO collaborators recognize that an engineering education is acquired over a long period and in a variety of institutions, and that educators in all parts of this spectrum can learn from practice elsewhere. The CDIO network therefore welcomes members in a diverse range of institutions ranging from research-led internationally acclaimed universities to local colleges dedicated to providing students with their initial grounding in engineering.
