IEEE International Conference on E-health Networking, Application & Services
17-20 September 2018 // Ostrava, Czech Republic

Call for papers

IEEE HealthCom 2018 is fully sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society. It aims at bringing together interested parties from around the world working in the health care field to exchange ideas, to discuss innovative and emerging solutions, and to develop collaborations. eHealth is defined as the cost-effective and secure use of information and communications technologies in support of health and the related fields, including health-care related services, surveillance, literature, education, knowledge, and research, both at the local site and at a distance. It will make personalized medicine possible and affordable in the near future. The adoption of eHealth technologies in medical fields creates huge opportunities yet lots of challenges still need to be resolved to build reliable, secure, and efficient networks or platforms with great flexibility.

Accepted and presented technical papers will be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2018 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®. Conference proceedings is indexed by Scopus and Web of Science. See the submission instructions section of the website for author requirements of accepted authors.

The authors of the three best articles of the conference selected on the basis of the results of the peer review process and the quality of the presentation of their papers at the conference assessed by the international committee will receive free submission in open access journal SENSORS (ISSN 1424-8220)

Selected excelent papers will be published in journals indexed in Scopus or Web of Science listed below. Articles selected for publication in journals must meet the conditions against self-plagiarism!
