IEEE Healthcom'14

October 15, 2014 (All day) to October 18, 2014 (All day)

IEEE Healthcom 2014 aims at bringing together interested parties from around the world working in the health care field to exchange ideas, to discuss innovative and emerging solutions, and to develop collaborations. eHealth is defined as the cost-effective and secure use of information and communications technologies in support of health and the related fields, including health-care related services, surveillance, literature, education, knowledge, and research, both at the local site and at a distance. It will make personalized medicine possible and affordable in the near future. The adoption of eHealth technologies in medical fields creates huge opportunities yet lots of challenges still need to be resolved to build reliable, secure, and efficient networks or platforms with great flexibility.

Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the eHealth area. The topics include but are not limited to:

- Biomedical and biosensors engineering

- Body sensor networks and wearable sensor systems

- Clinical biofeedback, decision support systems, and tools

- eHealth information and network Infrastructure

- eHealth for public health (including disease prevention, emergency preparedness, epidemiologic interventions)
