IEEE HealthCom 2014 is fully sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society. It 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

• Electronic health records, ePrescribing, Consumer health informatics, Health knowledge management and Healthcare Information Systems
• Telemedicine and mobile telemedicine
• Biomedical and biosensors engineering
• Body sensor/actuators networks and wearable sensor systems
• eHealth information and network Infrastructure
• eHealth for public health (including disease prevention, emergency preparedness, epidemiologic interventions)
• eHealth for aging (to support quality of life for older adults, aging in place and independence)
• Emerging eHealth applications (Health grid and health cloud)
• Context-awareness on eHealth
• Serious Games on eHealth
• Sustainable eHealth service and applications
• Health monitoring, traffic characterization, & management
• ICT-enabled personal health system
• Image and video processing on eHealth
• Network/Communications Infrastructures and Architectures for Healthcare (including DTNs, WMNs, WSNs)
• New IT-enhanced Models for Healthcare delivery
• Pervasive and ubiquitous computing on eHealth
• E-Health services in smart environments (smart homes, smart medical institutions, smart cities)
• Practical Applications of e-Health
• Security and privacy on eHealth
• Storage and Display Devices for eHealth
• Quality of Experience (QoE) with e-health applications, services and network technologies

The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented.

Note: To be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2014 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE /Xplore®/, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event
and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers.  Papers will be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2014 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE /Xplore®/.
16th IEEE International Conference on e-Health Networking, Application & Services (IEEE HEALTHCOM 2014)
Natal, RN Brazil – October 15-18, 2014
IEEE Healthcom 2014 invites proposals for tutorials to be held in Natal, Brazil from 15 to18 October 2014. The tutorials should be either half or full-day. The tutorial topic should enjoy broad interest within the community. The topic can be an established or emerging research topic within the field of eHealth, including platform- and application-services delivery based on virtualization technology, but also from a related research field such as Internet of Things / Machine to Machine Communications and Security & Privacy. The proposed topic should be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the research area, but it should also cover in-depth the most important contributions.

To propose a tutorial for IEEE Healthcom2014, please send an email to nagoulmine at ieee.org and stefan.covaci at tu-berlin.de  by April 25, 2014 containing:
1. Tutorial title and Lecturers’ names, addresses, emails  and short CV with photo
2. Abstract
3. Target audience
4. Tutorial Outline in syllabus form
5. Length of tutorial: half or full-day
6. Previous experiences (if any) giving this tutorial and number of attendees
Submission of tutorial proposals: April 25, 2014
Notification of acceptance: June 27, 2014

Dr Nazim Agoulmine, University of Evry Val d’Essonne, France
Dr Stefan Covaci, Technical University, Berlin, Germany
