IEEE International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, March 4-7 2018
The IEEE International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN) 2018 is the 15th in a series of annual conferences sponsored by IEEE EMBS dedicated to addressing the challenges in the areas of sensor-exploiting medical/healthcare systems and networking. IEEE BSN18 will be co-located with the HIMSS2018 (Health Information Management
Systems Society Annual Conference) and the IEEE BHI2018 (IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics) in Las Vegas, March 4-7, 2018. The joint program will have world-renowned speakers from research institutes, government agencies and industry. An attendance of over thousands is expected in this research festival in healthcare and medical technologies. Body sensor systems and networks provide the opportunity to measure physiology, behavior and environments outside the clinical settings. Means of systems, communication modules, on-chip and off-line data processing and modelling turn these measurements into actionable information. Authors are invited to submit full papers (4 Pages) and demo/poster abstracts (1 Page) presenting cutting-edge research related to the theory and/or practice of wearable and implantable systems and/or body sensor networking ranging from physical devices, integrated systems and healthcare/medical applications. All submissions must describe original
research, not published or currently under review elsewhere. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Prototyping body-worn sensor systems for healthcare applications;
• Ultra-low-power or batteryless system solutions for health longitudinal study;
• Machine learning, signal processing, and decision support algorithms & systems
• Security, privacy and trust in body sensor networks and systems;
• Medical and wellness applications from childhood health to elderly care;
• Body Area communication protocols, algorithms and systems.
This year, BSN will recognize multiple awards from all accepted papers, including Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award, Best Poster Award, and one Best Demo Award.
> Student travel grants sponsored by the US NSF are available!
