Call for Papers

Global Telehealth 2016 invites submissions of scientific papers on researchimplementation or strategy for Telehealth. The Telehealth domain of interest covers a broad scope: from enabling direct clinical interventions and interactions by real-time or store-forward processes, to patient centred care needs such as personal monitoring and care team support, and to education, policy and professional aspects.


Telehealth contributes to the new challenges of healthcare sustainability, supporting development and delivery on a wide scale of innovative models of care for treatment of disease, patient health management, home-based care and self-care, preventive health and health promotion, Telehealth also acts as a major change driver in global health issues aided by the rapid uptake of leapfrog new technologies like mobile wireless communications, smart phones or tablet computers, website and internet-based online resources. Mainstream activities in healthcare systems internationally leverage Telehealth to address these areas, with overarching aspirations to improve access, efficiency, quality and safety. This conference provides a platform for sharing of related best practice and emerging directions across the international community.

Acceptance of Papers will be subject to peer review by an international programme committee of technical experts. It is intended that accepted Papers will appear in a commercially published and indexed e-book in the IOS Press series “Studies in Health Technology and Informatics” as for previous Global Telehealth conferences. Submissions must contain a clear statement of aims, methods, results and conclusions for the work reported. Papers will be judged on originality, significance, technical quality, relevance to the conference, and presentation.


Submission of a Paper will imply an undertaking that, should it be accepted, at least one author will register and attend the conference to present the work, and provide a camera-ready version for publication.


File format for submissions

Submissions should be prepared in Word or Latex using IOS Press book formatting instructions 

All submissions must be converted to PDF file format before being uploaded to the conference portal, by the submission deadline. (Note: Latex files are unable to be uploaded and will corrupt.)

Accepted Papers will appear in a commercially published and indexed e-book in the IOS Press series “Studies in Health Technology and Informatics” as for previous Global Telehealth conferences. Authors will be notified on 25 July whether their paper has been accepted. Accepted authors will subsequently be required to provide their submissions, in the original Word or Latex file format, in compliance with the IOS Press book formatting instructions, by email, so the file can be forwarded directly to IOS Press.
