Call for Papers

IEEE/ACM CHASE is a leading international conference in the field of connected health. It aims to bring together researchers working in the smart and connected health area around the world to exchange innovative ideas and begin collaborations. Connected health can be broadly defined as the use of the Internet, sensing, communications, and data analytics in support of medical and health-related applications, systems, and engineering technologies. Connected health is at the convergence of multiple domains and technologies and helps to shape foundational improvements to health delivery. In the future, improvements from Connected Health will be realized by providing rich medical information to each individual and by 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. IEEE/ACM CHASE positions itself as a venue for science and engineering researchers to publish their research and discovery related to connected health, including those that have the potential to enable innovations but not yet ready for clinical studies.

Building upon the success of its past five years, CHASE 2021 will be held in December 2021 to address challenges for enabling connected health worldwide. Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the connected health area. We especially welcome submissions related to COVID-19 and other novel infectious diseases. CHASE 2021 will accept regular, short, special session, demo, and poster papers. Regular and short papers will have an option to be published in either ACM Proceedings or Elsevier Smart Health Journal. The Best Paper Award, the Best Student Paper Award, and the CHASE service award will be presented at the conference. Topics of interest and submission details are provided on the CHASE 2021 website.
