Call For Papers

The interaction between technology and healthcare has a long history. However, the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data, as well as the public embracement of miniature wearable biosensors have generated new opportunities for personalized eHealth and mHealth services. The advantages of these services include the availability and accessibility, ability to personalize and tailor content, and cost-effective delivery. Still, many challenges need to be addressed in order to develop consistent, suitable, safe, flexible and power-efficient systems fit for medical needs. To enable this transformation, it requires a large number of significant technological advancements in the hardware and software communities to come together. This special issue addresses all important aspects of novel IoT technologies for smart healthcare-wearable sensors, body area sensors, advanced pervasive healthcare systems, and Big Data analytics that are aimed at providing tele-health interventions to individuals for healthier lifestyles. Authors are invited to submit high quality papers containing original work from either academia or industry reporting novel advances in (but not limited to) the following topics:

TOPICS (non-exclusive)
* Internet of things for medical and healthcare applications
* Novel devices and circuits, and architectural support for healthcare-aware IoT
* Nano-CMOS and Post-CMOS based sensors, circuits, and controller
* Wearable and implantable computing and biosensors
* Cloud-enabled body sensor networks
* Secure middleware for eHealth and IoT
* Energy-efficient PHY/MAC and networking protocols for eHealth applications
* Reprogrammable and reconfigurable embedded systems for eHealth
* eHealth traffic characterization
* eHealth oriented software architectures (Agent, SOA, Middleware, etc.)
* Big-data analytics, machine learning algorithms and scalable/parallel/distributed algorithms
* Theory and practice of engineering semantic e-health systems, especially methods, means and best cases
* Fog computing/Edge clouds for health care cloud resource allocation and monitoring
* Privacy preserving and Security approaches for large scale analytics
* Fault tolerance, reliability and scalability
* Case studies of smart eHealth architectures (telemedicine applications, health management applications, etc.)
* Autonomic analysis, monitoring and situation alertness
