Dear Colleagues,

Due to the escalated situation of COVID-19 over the globe and the
difficulties that it creates for 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.

IEEE/ACM CHASE 2020 Call for Papers

The Fifth IEEE/ACM Conference on Connected Health: Applications, Systems
and Engineering Technologies

Washington, D.C., December 2020


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 defined as the use
of Internet, sensing, communications, and intelligent analytics in support
of health-related applications, health 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. Building upon the success of its
past four years, CHASE 2020 will be held in Washington, D.C. in December
2020 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 its
mitigation. IEEE/ACM CHASE positions itself as a venue for science and
engineering researchers to publish their research and discovery, including
those that have potential to enable innovations but not yet ready for
clinical study.

CHASE 2020 will accept regular, short, special sessions, 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 2020 website.
