BODYNETS 2020 : (Virtual) 15th EAI International Conference on Body Area Networks: Smart IoT and big data for intelligent health management
Call For Papers
Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI ICMTEL 2020 will take place online in a live stream.
Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.
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) and Smart IoT and big data for intelligent health management as well . 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.
