Call for Papers

Scope

Today, computer sciences and technologies play an important role in promoting healthcare services around the world. Employing robots in surgeries, machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques in medical diagnosis, pervasive computing systems for any time, anywhere and high-quality medical care, and distributed systems (such as clouds) for processing huge volume of medical data are just a few examples of computer use in healthcare.

The 1st Conference on Healthcare computing Systems and Technologies (CHEST 2019) aims to bring together the collaboration between research groups in the area of computer science and medical healthcare. CHEST 2019 invites authors from both research areas to submit high-quality papers containing original work. The paper could present a new and practical application of computer techniques, methods, devices, and architectures for improving the quality of healthcare and reducing clinical risks.
