ICTS4eHealth 2017 - 2nd edition of the IEEE International Workshop on 
ICT Solutions for e-Health
Aquila Atlantis Hotel, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
July 03-06 2017 - 

** with Best Paper Award **

in conjunction with the Twenty-Second IEEE Symposium on Computers and 
Communications (ISCC)

e-Health is one of the major research topics that have been attracting 
cross-disciplinary research groups. The deployment of new emerging ICT 
technologies for Health, especially based on Cloud computing, Internet 
of Things (IoT), and Computational Intelligence, is attracting the 
interest of many researchers.

The use of Cloud computing, IoT technologies, and methods typical of 
Soft Computing and Computational Intelligence have been very prominent 
recently and can be of great help in finding good solutions to many 
practical healthcare applications.

For instance, health monitoring, health data storage, health data 
collection, mobile health, pervasive health, healthcare monitoring, 
telemedicine, context-aware computing, ubiquitous computing, processing 
health data in the cloud, securing health data in the cloud and 
Assistive Technology (AT) are areas of interest that are being addressed 
using cloud computing and IoT techniques. On the other hand, several 
challenging issues have raised due to the adoption of such emerging 
technologies. These include the quality of health data, the ability to 
retrieve information and use it in health context, as for example in 
tasks related to machine learning, knowledge discovery, decision 
support, regression, forecasting, optimization, feature selection, and 
additionally privacy and security issues of health data while being 
processed in the cloud, availability of health data, models of context 
and tele-monitoring of contextual applications.

ICTS4eHealth 2017 is the second edition of the International IEEE 
Workshop dedicated to ICT solutions for e-Health, especially based on 
Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Computational Intelligence.

The workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry, 
government, and medical centers in order to present the state of the art 
in the emerging area of the use of cloud systems in connected health 
infrastructure and applications, and the use of IoT and Computational 
Intelligence technique in the area of eHealth.

Authors are invited to submit full papers written in English, with a 
paper length of six (6) printed pages, including figures, tables & 
references in IEEE double-column format (IEEE standard conference 
templates). Submissions should contain original material and not be 
previously published, or currently submitted for consideration 
elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed for scientific quality by the 
Technical Program Committee.

All papers should be submitted via EDAS using

Paper submission implies the willingness of at least one author to 
register, at the regular rate (non-student), and present the paper. The 
Workshop Proceedings will be part of the ISCC 2017 Proceedings and will 
be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The IEEE 
ICTS4eHealth 2017 Workshop is using the EDAS Conference Management 
System to manage the paper submission process.


A "Best Paper Award" Certificate will be conferred on the author(s) of a 
paper presented at the workshop, selected by the Chairs based on 
scientific significance, originality and outstanding technical quality 
of the paper, as assessed also by the evaluations of the members of the 
Program Committee.
