The 16th IEEE International Workshop on E-Health Systems & Web Technologies (ESAS 2021)
Call for Papers
ESAS 2021 fosters the following complementary objectives:
- Inquiring into the theory and practice of engineering e-health systems, especially methods, means, and best cases;
- Exploring into unifying software engineering methodologies employed in the health informatics applications across domains also preserving security and privacy of patient health records; and,
- Using relevant methodologies of Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Deep Learning, Semantic Web as well as incorporating Recommendation, Knowledge-Based Reasoning, Decision Support, and Expert Systems to implement intelligent and resilient computing for a collaborative world for E-Health.
E-Health systems play a significant role in the well-being of individuals, be it as medical solutions or for everyday healthcare. New models and methods continue to be developed to produce safer healthcare environments. The rapid growth of using such devices and technologies in medical fields has generated new opportunities for emerging application improvement. Huge challenges still remain to be resolved in order to develop consistent, suitable, safe, flexible, inter-connected and power-efficient systems fit for medical needs. In unison with the main conference, the main theme of ESAS 2021 will be “Intelligent and Resilient Computing for a Collaborative World” for E-Health.
Web technologies render dynamic, heterogeneous, distributed and shared content equally accessible to human reader and software agents. Distributed agents functioning autonomously can utilize Web content to gather and aggregate knowledge for reasoning and inferring new results towards achieving their goals as well as generating new knowledge. Such knowledge in turn may be disseminated and used to achieve the shared goal of the application system. Here, the vision is to achieve a synergy with E-Health systems whereby both semantics and agents will be equally in the center stage. Therefore, paper proposals on approaches and applications of big data analytics, knowledge-based expert systems, machine learning, security, privacy, and Web technologies for affecting E-/M-health Systems in digital world are welcome. Topics of interest span a wide spectrum in both theory and practice.
Authors are invited to submit original technical papers and novel research contributions in any aspect of E-Health covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below.

Workshop papers due:
21 April 1 May 2021 (UPDATED)
Workshop paper notifications: 15 May 2021
Camera-ready and registration due: 31 May 2021
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted. In accordance with IEEE policy, submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism. Instances of alleged misconduct will be handled according to the IEEE Publication Services and Product Board Operations Manual.
Please note that in order to ensure the fairness of the review process, COMPSAC follows the double-blind review procedure. Therefore we kindly ask authors to remove their names, affiliations and contacts from the header of their papers in the review version. Please also redact all references to authors’ names, affiliations or prior works from the paper when submitting papers for review. Once accepted, authors can then include their names, affiliations and contacts in the camera-ready revision of the paper, and put the references to their prior works back.
Workshop papers are limited to 6 pages. Page limits are inclusive of tables, figures, appendices, and references. Workshop papers can add an additional 2 pages with additional page charges ($250USD/page).
IEEE Paper templates are available in MS Word 2003 and LaTex. All submissions must use US 8.5×11 letter page format.
