Call for Papers
Recent advances in the field of wireless sensor networks have moved them beyond their traditional areas of application in monitoring of remote and mobile environments. Sensor networks are increasingly being deployed within and around the human body to form Body Area Networks (BodyNets). In addition to monitoring focused applications BodyNets allow also for closed loop systems incorporating actuators. They can be utilized in diverse applications such as physiological monitoring, human computer interactions, education and entertainment through interactive games. This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying BodyNets. In this regard, the conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse fields including computer science, biomedical engineering and medicine in both academia and industry to address the technical, social, system and application issues related to BodyNets.
The conference invites original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to:
The best paper will be selected based on input from the reviewers and conference organizing committee. Distinguished papers accepted and presented in BodyNets-10, after further revisions, will be published in International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive Communications Systems (IJAACS), and ACM MONET special issue on "Ubiquitous Body Sensor Networks".
