Call for Book Chapters: Smart Systems for E-health
To be published in “Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing” series – Springer

Abstracts due (1-2 pages) : 25 June 2018

A new edited book is intended to be released in 2019 by Springer in the « Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing » series. Prospective authors are sollicited to send first abstracts of 1 or 2 pages describing the scope and outline of their chapters. Authors of selected chapters will be invited next to submit full chapters.

E-health has attracted a worldwide great interest since more than a decade. 
E-health is an evolving concept since its inception due to the numerous technologies that can be adapted to offer new innovative and efficient E-health applications. Nowadays, with the tremendous advancement of wireless technologies, sensors and wearable devices and software technologies, new opportunities arisen and transformed the E-health field. Moreover, with the expansion of the IoT, and the huge amount of data that connected E-health devices and applications are generating, it is also mandatory to address new challenges related to the data management, applications management and their security. Moreover, artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming more and more needed in many applications to build smart, resilient and innovative medical services. 
The purpose of this book is to review the recent advances in E-health technologies and applications. In particular, the book will be folded into two parts: i) Infrastructures for E-health: devices design and communication technologies for E-health, ii) Enabling technologies for software and data management for E-health.
This book is intended for all practitioners (industrial and academic) in the areas of : i) wireless communications and embedded technologies applied to E-health ii)Software, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and big data for E-health applications.

We seek chapters covering the following topics: 

I.  Infrastructures for E-health
- Design of sensors and wearable devices for E-health applications 
- Emerging wireless technologies for E-health 
- SDN and E-health
- Architectures and models for Wireless networks-based E-health applications
- Standards for WBAN communication protocols
- Wireless MAC protocols for WBAN 
- Routing for WBAN-based E-health applications
- Security issue, attacks and vulnerabilities in WBAN
- Mobility management in WBAN

II.  Enabling technologies for smart E-health systems and applications 
- Emergent E-health applications 
- E-health, Telemedicine and Mobile health applications 
- Integration of E-health and Internet of Things (IoT) : the Medical IoT
- Integration and support of Cloud Computing in E-health applications 
- Big data and E-health
- Data mining and Data analytic in E-health applications 
- Service oriented architectures and middlewares for E-health 
- Privacy and security in E-health applications
- Machine learning and Deep learning for e-health systems 
- AI based systems for E-health 

We highly encourage submission of reviews and survey chapters as the book is intended to be a good reference on its topic for students and scholars.
