First International Workshop on Service Science for e-Health (SSH 2013)

Co-located with  IEEE HEALTHCOM 2013

Oct 9-12, Lisbon, Portugal

Technological developments in computing and networking have largely
made the delivery of health services  possible from a distance. The
key requirements for current and emerging healthcare systems are
ubiquitous access to services, delivery of personalized services,
broadly understood security, openness to new networking technologies
and techniques for the purpose of flexible management of the quality
of service (QoS) and delivery of high quality of experience (QoE). The
fulfilment of the above requirements will lead to the utilization of
Future Internet architectures and concepts (e.g., Internet of Things,
Internet of Services, Internet of Media) as well as new system design
paradigms (e.g., communication enabled applications, service oriented
architecture, user centricity, content and context awareness) to
design and implement advanced e-Health systems.Service science is an
emerging interdisciplinary approach to design, implement and evaluate
complex service systems. It brings together science, ICT technologies
and business to provide an added value to domain-specific applications
of service-based systems. Service science is often defined as
application of scientific, engineering, and management disciplines
that integrate elements of computer science, operations research,
industrial engineering, business strategy, management sciences, and
social and legal sciences, in order to encourage innovation in how
organizations create value for customers and shareholders that could
not be achieved through such disciplines working in isolation. The
application of service science in the e-Health area seems to be a
natural approach to build platforms, systems and applications which
meet current and future demands of the healthcare domain.

The main aim of the workshop is to bring together representatives of
academia, industry and healthcare business to present recent advances
in the field of e-Health. The most welcome are high quality
interdisciplinary papers presenting utilization of service science to
develop new or enhance existing healthcare systems and services.
Prospective authors are   invited to submit their original
contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the area
of service science for healthcare.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to

•           e-Health services design and implementation
•           Business models for e-Health services’ delivery
•           Cloud computing for e-Health
•           Middleware for e-Health services
•           Models and methods for decision making support in the
healthcare domain
•           Network architectures for e-Health
•           Service-based e-Health systems
•           Virtual and augmented reality for e-Health
•           Wireless access to e-Health services
•           Mobile Health solutions

Paper submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers using the EDAS
System at A full paper should not have more than
five (5) IEEE style pages including results, figures and references.
Papers will be reviewed with the standard reviewing procedure (with at
least 3 independent anonymous reviews). Accepted papers will be
published on IEEExplore (

Note: To be published in the IEEE SSH 2013  Proceedings and
IEEEXplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register  at
the full (member or non-member) rate and present the paper at the
