  • Security, privacy, and ethical challenges in smart health applications

Papers including new datasets and clinical/on-the-field validations will be highly appreciated.

Submission and Registration

Authors are invited to submit technical or theoretical papers for presentation at the workshop, describing original, previously unpublished work, which is not currently under review by another workshop, conference, or journal. Papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the workshop. Accepted workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore).

Papers may be no more than 6 pages in length. Papers above the page limits will not be considered for review or publication. All papers must be typeset in double-column IEEE format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper, with all fonts embedded. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, can be found on the IEEE website.

Submission must be made via EDAS using the following link:

It is a requirement that all the authors listed in the submitted paper are also listed in EDAS. The author section of EDAS will be locked after the workshop submission deadline to ensure that conflict of interest can be properly enforced during the review process. If the list of authors differs between the paper and EDAS, the paper may not be reviewed. Each accepted workshop paper requires a full SMARTCOMP registration (no registration is available for workshops only) and in-person presentation. Papers that are not presented at the workshop will not be published in the proceedings.


  • Paper submission: March 31, 2024 April 12, 2024
  • Paper notification: April 30, 2024
  • Camera ready deadline: May 10, 2024

Camera-ready Instructions

Please check that the author names and affiliations for all authors are correct in EDAS, as these will be transferred to the IEEE Publisher (IEEE CPS). We remind you that modifications to the authors' list and paper title are typically not allowed. This action requires authorization from the program chairs.

The camera-ready version of the paper must be uploaded to the IEEE CPS site (not EDAS) on or before May 10, 2024.
