Call For Papers
Advances in informatics have led to new opportunities and challenges in healthcare research and applications. There is an increased effort to leverage information systems and data analytics to transform reactive care to proactive and preventive care, clinic-centric practice to patient-centered practice, training-based interventions to globally aggregated evidence, and episodic response to continuous well-being monitoring and maintenance.

International Conference for Smart Health (ICSH), originated in 2013, intends to provide a forum for the growing international smart health research community to discuss the technical, practical, economic, behavioral, and social issues associated with smart health. The 6th International Conference for Smart Health (ICSH 2018) will be hosted by Wuhan University in Wuhan, China on July 2-3, 2018. ICSH 2018 welcomes studies on the principles, approaches, models, frameworks, new applications, and effects of using novel information technology to address healthcare problems and improve social welfare.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication by IEEE Intelligent Systems (IEEE IS), Electronic Commerce Research and Applications (ECRA), ACM Transactions on Management Information Systems (TMIS), Pacific Asia Journal of the Association for Information Systems (PAJAIS), Global Health Research and Policy (GHRP) and Data and Information Management (DIM).
