Manuscripts should be submitted to EasyChair:

Papers submitted to A2HC 2021 must describe original research results and must not have been published or simultaneously submitted anywhere else. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the A2HC 2021 and present the paper at the workshop (be it in presence or remotely).

Publication venue

All accepted and presented papers will be published in a Topical Collection of the Journal of Medical Systems, Springer, I.F. 3.058.

For publication, it is required that authors carefully revise their manuscripts according to both the reviewers’ comments received while submitting to the workshop, and the comments received from the audience during the workshop.


Papers must respect the submission guidelines and template required for the publication in JOMS as available at:

As a reference, manuscripts should be maximum 10 pages long in a two-columns format (sample paper from previous workshop edition)

Review process

All papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers, in a double-blind process. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity, and quality of presentation.

A typical scale of [-2, 2] will be used to score the papers, and only those with a positive average classification will be considered for presentation. Furthermore, papers with at least one negative score will be further screened:

  • if the negative review is too low, the paper will be rejected
  • in case of a mild negative review, the paper will receive an additional fast-track review to determine if it can be considered for presentation
