[COVID-19 UPDATE] ICTS4eHealth 2020 - 5th edition of the IEEE International Workshop on ICT Solutions for e-Health

Dear users of Semantic-Web mailing list,
[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority.
Please know that our thoughts are with those affected by the COVID-19
After studying and evaluating the recent announcements, guidance, and news
released by relevant national departments, we are sorry to announce that
ICTS4eHealth 2020, scheduled to be held July 07, 2020, will no longer be
held face to face in Rennes, France.

Authors of the accepted papers will be invited to upload a 15 minutes
presentation of their work, and their video will be available through this
website to all interested readers. So, by submitting to the ICTS4eHealth
workshop you automatically agree to publish your presentation if your paper
will be accepted.

Accepted papers will be anyway included in the ISCC 2020 Proceedings, and
will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. The ISCC Proceedings have
been indexed in the past by ISI, dblp, and Scopus.

For each paper accepted at ICTS4eHealth workshop, one of the authors will
have to pay a reduced fee just to cover the IEEExplore costs:
- IEEE Author Member Fee: 100 Euros
- IEEE Authors Non-Member Fee: 125 Euros

Please, see the new deadlines at Important Dates
We are sorry for any possible inconvenience.

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

ICTS4eHealth 2020 is the fifth 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.
