BODYNETS 2019 : BODYNETS 2019 - 14th EAI International Conference on Body Area Networks
Call For Papers
Wearable communications and personal health management are the future trends the healthcare procedures are nowadays heading for. To make this happen, new technologies are required to provide trustable measuring and communications mechanisms from the data source to medical health databases. Wireless body area networks (WBAN) are one major element in this process. Not only on-body devices but also technologies providing information from inside a body are in the focus of this Conference. Dependable communications combined with accurate localization and behavior analysis will benefit WBAN technology and make the healthcare processes more effective.
This conference will explore the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying body area networks (BodyNets). The conference aims to establish a forum to exchange ideas, discuss practices, raise awareness, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in the field of computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, medicine, and other disciplines in both academia and industry.
We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:
Embedded Devices and Medical Applications
In-, On- and Off-Body Communications & Networking
Antennas and Propagation
Security and privacy of health data communications
Smart BAN for Social Inclusion
Socio-economic aspects of health caring
Medical device regulation
Human bond communications
Remote patient management and preventive care
Radio coexistence and interference management
Rehabilitation and activity monitoring
Wellness and sport applications of body area networks
ICT solutions for health and wellness education
WBANs supporting cognitive impairments
