Scope and Topics

Nowadays, healthcare applications are strongly associated with developments in high technology. By following revolutionary developments in information-communication technologies (ICT) and artificial intelligence (AI), today’s healthcare devices are known as smart systems, which are capable of sensing and processing the data in embedded system architectures. As combined under the umbrella of Internet of Thing (IoT), wearables are among the related smart systems and they have a remarkable role on supporting personal and public healthcare. Because wearables have flexible physical attributes and ensure AI-based, computational software, they have been widely used by people for diagnostics and monitoring purposes. These purposes lead to wide networks in which medical staff, doctors, and many other actors take place to enhance the roles of wearables in healthcare problems. As the humanity is approaching through the end of the first quarter of 21st century, wearables expose high potential in shaping the future of healthcare for individuals and societies. So, it is a need to understand current state of wearables in healthcare and derive future perspectives by examining the latest research efforts.

The theme of the 5th EAI International Conference on Wearables in Healthcare (EAI HealthWear 2024) is based on the extensive role of wearables in advancing healthcare applications. In this context, the event has a wide scope of research related to not only wearables but also associated technologies such as IoT, sensors, network infrastructure, and cloud systems. Moreover, the EAI HealthWear 2024 also aims to evaluate the state in terms of cyber security, data privacy, usability and any additional cases connected to the evolution of wearables in healthcare. As the mission of the EAI HealthWear series, the event welcomes international audience to share their latest research outcomes and contribute to the active discussion venue targeting academicians, researchers, degree student groups, and professionals/experts around the world. As connected with the mission, the vision of the EAI HealthWear is to increase the knowledge on wearables for improving healthcare services, understand the awareness among users and society, discuss about open gaps as well as technical application ways, and advance the field through ethical and responsible use of the technology

Publication

All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer – LNICST series and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, such as Web of Science, Compendex, Scopus, DBLP, EU Digital Library, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Inspec, and Zentralblatt MATH.

Available Journals

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to:
Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) Journal [IF: 3.8 (2022)]

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:
EAI Endorsed Transactions on Pervasive Health and Technology (Scopus, Compendex)

By paying an additional $150, authors can publish their articles in the EAI Endorsed Transactions journal selected by the conference (Scopus and Ei-indexed). 

The article’s publication is subject to the following requirements:  
– It must be an extended version of the conference paper with a different title and abstract. In general, 30% of new content must be added.
– The article will be processed once the conference proceedings have been published.
– The article will be processed using the fast-track option.
– Once the conference proceedings are published, the corresponding author should contact us at [email protected] with the details of their article to begin processing.

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper Submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

– Regular papers should be up to 12-15+ pages in length. – Springer
– Short papers should be 6-11 pages in length.

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
