Call For Papers

ICTS4eHealth 2020 - 5th edition of the IEEE International Workshop on ICT Solutions for e-Health
The conference will be held in Rennes, France
July 7th, 2020 -

in conjunction with the Twenty-Fifth 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 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.

Manuscripts should describe original work and should be no more than 7 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers in the IEEE double column proceedings format including tables, figures and references. Download manuscript templates for IEEE conference proceedings here.

Note that accepted papers up to 6 pages will be published with no additional charge. Exceeding pages will be charged an additional fee. Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference and present the paper. Only registered and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

All papers should be submitted via EasyChair using the following link and secelting "ICTS4eHealth Workshop" track.

Please, contact us for any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts.

Accepted papers will be 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. This makes the ISCC conference one of the publication venues with very high visibility and impact in both Computer and Communications areas.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version in the*IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (WoS Impact Factor 4.217, Scopus SJR 1.122)* - Special Issue on "Enabling Technologies for Next Generation Telehealthcare".

Authors must use the IEEE conference proceedings format obtainable at:

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.

Submission deadline: April 25th, 2020 (extended to May 09, 2020)
Notification of paper acceptance: May 15th, 2020 (extended to May 29, 2020)
Submission of camera-ready papers: May 25th, 2020 (extended to June 08, 2020)
Registration: May 25th, 2020 (extended to June 08, 2020)

Covid-19 Update:
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 outbreak.

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:
