Introduction

The 3rd China Conference on Health Information Processing (CHIP) is the annual symposium of the Chinese Information Processing Society of China (CIPS) Technical Committee of Medical, Health and Biological Information Processing. CHIP is a leading international conference specialized in the fields of health information processing in China. It serves as a main forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government all over the world to share their ideas, research results and experiences for further promotion in the fields. The previous CHIP conferences were successfully held in Shenzhen (2015 and 2016). In the first two conferences, experts from USA and China shared their research results and experiences only by oral presentations. In this year, we plan to call for papers to show lastest research results in this domain. All accepted papers will be recommended to the following SCI-indexed journals after the conference.
