IEEE/ACM CHASE is a leading international conference in the field of connected health. It aims at bringing together researchers worldwide working in the smart and connected health area to exchange innovative ideas and develop collaborations. Connected health can be defined as the use of Internet, sensing, communications and intelligent techniques in support of health related Applications, Systems and Engineering. Connected health brings together multidisciplinary technologies to provide preventive or remote treatments by utilizing digital heath information structure such as body sensor networks and intelligent techniques such as from Data to Knowledge to Decisions, while at the same time connecting patient and caregivers seamlessly in the loop of the healthcare ecosystem. Future Connected health will be realized by providing rich medical information to each individual through replacing infrequent, clinic-based measurements with unobtrusive, continuous sensing, monitoring and assessment. Connected health technologies will enable preventive health and personalized medicine and may significantly reduce healthcare costs. However, a number of challenges still need to be addressed to enable connected health worldwide.

Building upon the success of CHASE 2016 and CHASE 2017, CHASE 2018 will be held in Washington, D.C. on September 26-28, 2018. Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the connected health area. IEEE/ACM CHASE positions itself as a venue for science and engineering researchers to publish their research and discovery, including those have potential to enable innovations but not yet ready for clinical study. Starting from this year, all accepted conference papers will be published on Elsevier Smart Health Journal as a special issue

The topics include but are not limited to:

  • Public health and Home Monitoring
  • Healthcare Data processing, Data Analytics, Data mining
  • Medical imaging & Wearable Computing
  • Personalized Medicine & Preventive Treatment
  • Evolutionary and longitudinal patient and disease models
  • Security, privacy and trust for connected Health services/applications
  • Biomedical Sensor Monitoring System
  • Integration of medical devices with wireless health
  • Body area networks
  • Implantable Sensor Networks
  • Remote Medical Diagnosis System
  • Communication System or Decision Support System design for connected health
Engineering Technologies
  • Design of Wearable devices
  • Smart garments/textiles
  • Communication/network infrastructures, and protocols
  • Robotics for connected Health
  • Software, systems and performance engineering for Connected Health
