IEEE/ACM CHASE is a leading international conference in the field of connected health. It aims at bringing together researchers worldwide working in the smart and connected health area to exchange innovative ideas and develop collaborations. Connected health can be defined as the use of Internet, sensing, communications and intelligent techniques in support of health related Applications, Systems and Engineering. Connected health brings together multidisciplinary technologies to provide preventive or remote treatments by utilizing digital heath information structure such as body sensor networks and intelligent techniques such as from Data to Knowledge to Decisions, while at the same time connecting patient and caregivers seamlessly in the loop of the healthcare ecosystem. Future Connected health will be realized by providing rich medical information to each individual through 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. However, a number of challenges still need to be addressed to enable connected health worldwide.

  • Place your paper title, authors'names and authors'affiliation(s) at the top of the poster to allow conference attendees to find your paper easily. The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters.

  • Authors can have freedom to display their poster information in figures, tables, text, photographs.

  • The poster shall be prepared to convey information to audiences effective and should be structured by including the background of the research followed by results and conclusions.


A proposal of full-day workshop focuses on a specific theme of current interest that can attract high-quality submissions.

Please, include the following information:

  1. Title of the workshop

  2. Significance and timeliness

  3. The target audience; will this help bring new people to or help current people in CHASE
