The International Symposium on Health and Medical informatics, Management
and Security (HMiMS 2020)

*Paris, France. December 14-16, 2020*


*in conjunction with*

*The Seventh International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems,
Management and Security (IoTSMS 2020)*

*HMiMS 2020 CFP*

Health Information Technology (HIT) innovations offer significant potential
to transform the delivery of care, to improve the quality and efficiency of
the healthcare system, to enhance interactions between patients/caregivers
and providers, and to enable greater access to the latest advancements in
treatments, among other accomplishments and outcomes. Health and Medical
Informatics is an important HIT area that is at the intersection of
information science, computer science, social science, behavioral science
and health care. This field is mainly concerned with the resources,
devices, and methods required to optimize the acquisition, storage,
retrieval, processing and use of information in health and biomedicine.
Health and Medical Informatics is driven by computers, information and
communication systems. It is a multi-disciplinary field that covers a wide
spectrum of sub-fields. It combines the problem solving skills of computer
scientists with health care professionals and health care givers.
Databases, networking, graphical interfaces, IoT, data mining, machine
learning, intelligent decision support systems and data science are just a
few of the technologies and research areas currently contributing to health
and medical informatics. Mobility and ubiquity in healthcare systems,
standardization of technologies and procedures, certification, privacy and
security are some of the issues that medical informatics professionals and
the ICT industry and research community in general are addressing in order
to further promote ICT in healthcare. The purpose of this symposium is to
bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application
of information and communication technologies (ICT) to healthcare and
medicine in general and to the support of persons with special needs in

two-column format (IEEE Templates
All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper
Submission Link. A full paper must not exceed the stated length (including
all figures, tables and references). Submitted papers must present original
unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other
conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be
rejected without review. Also submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be
considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information
or clarification.

All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted
papers will appear in the IoTSMS Proceeding and to be submitted to IEEE
Xplore for inclusion. The proceedings are also submitted for indexing to EI
(Compendex), Scopus and other indexing services like DBLP.

Submitted papers must include original work, and must not be under
consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of regular
papers must not exceed 8 pages and must follow the IEEE paper format.
Please include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and
fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted
papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted
papers that are deemed of good quality but that could not be accepted as
regular papers will be accepted as short papers. Length of short papers
