SSH 2015 : SSH 2015: The 3rd International Workshop on Service Science for e-Health
Call For Papers
Service science is an emerging interdisciplinary approach to design, implement and evaluate complex service systems. It brings together science, ICT technologies and business to provide an added value to domain-specific applications of service-based systems. Service science is often defined as application of scientific, engineering, and
management disciplines that integrate elements of computer science, operations research, industrial engineering, business strategy, management sciences, and social and legal sciences, in order to encourage innovation in how organizations create value for customers and shareholders that could not be achieved through such disciplines
working in isolation. The application of service science in the e-Health area seems to be a natural approach to build platforms, systems and applications which meet current and future demands of the healthcare domain.
The main aim of the workshop is to bring together representatives of academia, industry and healthcare business to present recent advances in the field of e-Health. The most welcome are high quality interdisciplinary papers presenting utilization of service science to develop new or enhance existing healthcare systems and services.
Prospective authors are invited to submit their original contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the area of service science for healthcare.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to
e-Health services design and implementation
Business models for e-Health services’ delivery
Cloud computing for e-Health
Middleware for e-Health services
Models and methods for decision making support in the healthcare domain
Network architectures for e-Health
Service-based e-Health systems
Virtual and augmented reality for e-Health
Wireless access to e-Health services
Mobile Health solutions
Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers using the EDAS System at http://edas.info/. A full paper should not have more than five (5) IEEE style pages including results, figures and references. Papers will be reviewed with the standard reviewing procedure (with at least 2 independent anonymous reviews). Accepted papers will be published on IEEEXplore(http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/).
Selected papers will be considered to be published in dedicated special issues of the following international journals (to be confirmed):
Mathematical Problems in Engineering – IF=1,082 (http://www.hindawi.com/journal/mpe/)
Cybernetics and Systems: An International Journal – IF=0,507 (http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/ucbs20)
Note: The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented. To be published in the IEEE SSH 2015 Workshop Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE /Xplore®/, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the workshop and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the workshop unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers in the workshop, one registration is valid for up to 2 papers. Papers will be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2015 Workshop Proceedings and submitted to IEEE /Xplore®/.
