CHASE 2020

The IEEE/ACM international conference on Connected Health: Applications, Systems and Engineering Technologies (CHASE) is a leading international conference in the field of connected health. CHASE aims to bring together researchers working in the smart and connected health area around the world to exchange innovative ideas and begin collaborations. Topics within the scope of CHASE include sensing, communications, and intelligent analytics in support of health-related applications, systems, and engineering technologies. Connected health will revolutionize preventative health and personalized medicine, providing rich medical information never-before avaliable to individuals while driving down healthcare costs. Connected health is at the intersection of many fields including, but not limited to wearable technologies, data management and security, and sensing technologies. As such, we require contributions from many different fields and welcome cross-disciplinary work.

Important Dates

  • Due to the spread and impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the regular and short paper submission deadlines have been extended by two weeks (April 06, 2020).
  • Due to the escalated situation of COVID-19 over the globe and the difficulties that it creates to researchers to access university facilities, we have decided to further extend the CHASE 2020 paper submission deadline by three months to July 7th, 2020. Additionally, IEEE/ACM CHASE 2020 has been postponed and will take place sometime in December 2020. We hope this will help authors prepare a more complete submission in this challenging time as well as allow for a physical conference. Please see the CFP with updated dates below and contact us if you have any questions.
