Submissions

Original contributions in all fields of Telehealth (and closely related topics in eHealth) are invited in the form of full Papers (maximum 8 pages or approximately 4000 words, not previously published).

Acceptance of Papers will be subject to peer review by an international programme committee of technical experts. It is intended that accepted Papers will appear in a commercially published and indexed e-book in the IOS Press series “Studies in Health Technology and Informatics” as for previous Global Telehealth conferences. Submissions must contain a clear statement of aims, methods, results and conclusions for the work reported. Papers will be judged on originality, significance, technical quality, relevance to the conference, and presentation. Submission of a Paper will imply an undertaking that, should it be accepted, at least one author will register and attend the conference to present the work, and provide a camera-ready version for publication.

Submissions should be prepared in Word or Latex using the formatting instructions http://www.iospress.nl/service/authors/latex-and-word-tools-for-book-authors/ and must then be converted to PDF file format before being uploaded to the conference submission portal.  Accepted authors will subsequently be required to provide final revised submissions in Word or Latex file format in compliance with IOS Press book formatting instructions, by email, so the file can be forwarded directly to IOS Press.
