Security and Privacy for Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) to be 
published by Elsevier

Call for Chapters

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a chapter for inclusion in 
the Handbook of Security and Privacy for Internet of Medical Things 
(IoMT) to be published by Elsevier. The submitted proposal should have 
1/2 page and include sufficienet details to be useful for Security and 
Privacy in IoMT Educators, Industrialists, and Readers having security 
and privacy ranging from basic to recent advance.

Scope of the Book

IoMT is capable of transforming healthcare environments into smart 
hospitals. It can assist in tasks like monitoring the patients’ vitals, 
enhancing the efficiency of healthcare workers, streamlining the 
health-related processes, tracking the medication routines of patients, 
location of patients’ admittance, and dynamic loading of patients’ 
record to share with the caregivers.
With the creation of new technologies, various challenges occur as well. 
The topmost challenges faced by IoMT are the security and privacy 
protection concerns, and addressing these issues should be the top 
priority. IoMT devices are vulnerable to cyber attackers and a security 
breach can cause a hazard of damage. It is vital to keep the patient’s 
and hospital’s sensitive information out of the reach of hackers. The 
incorporation of blockchain, big data analytics and Artificial 
Intelligence (AI) aids in the enhancement of security and privacy 

List of Topics

• Fundamentals of IoMT devices
• Ethical issues concerning the adoption of IoMT
• Future challenges of IoMT in the healthcare domain
• Confidentiality of health records and medical data
