Call For Papers

With the development of smart sensorial media, things, edge analytics along with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud technologies, “Connected healthcare” is getting remarkable consideration from academia, the governments, the industry, and the healthcare community. Recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought the vision of a smarter world into reality with a massive amount of data and numerous services. However, because of the massive connectivity of IoT-connected devices in providing numerous connected health services, it becomes a computation-intensive and storage burden at each edge device. To address this challenge, edge computing along with AI provides powerful computation services and massive data acquisition at edge networks in an intelligent manner for autonomous decision-making, which is quite impossible for individual human analysts. The edge-IoT services can provide a high quality of experience to physicians, clinics, and other caregivers anytime and from anywhere seamlessly. Similarly, with the outbreak of COVID-19, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has gained significant attention by utilizing its machine learning algorithms for quality patient care. However, the convergence of Edge, IoT, and AI can provide new opportunities for both technologies, as it can play a significant role in smart healthcare by offering a better insight into healthcare data to support affordable personalized care.

This workshop aims to report high-quality research on recent advances in various aspects of smart connected health, more specifically to the state-of-the-art approaches, methodologies and systems in the design, development, deployment and innovative use of networked services, tools and technologies for smart connected health. Authors are solicited to submit complete unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to the following topics of interest.:

Explainable AI (XAI) and predictive edge analytics for COVID-19
Edge AI-assisted COVID-19 and alike detection/diagnosis systems
AI-centric Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) approach for Connected health
AI-enabled IoT-edge data analytics for Connected Health
