EAI BODYNETS 2021 : 16th EAI International Conference on Body Area Networks: Smart IoT and big data for intelligent health management (Springer, Scopus, ISI, Ei, more)
Call For Papers
EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the event.
With recent advances in wireless communication, low-power miniaturized sensors, and semiconductor technologies, the sensor networks have become an integral part of ubiquitous healthcare systems. Wearable communications and personal health management are the future trends the healthcare procedures are nowadays heading for – Wireless body area networks (WBAN) are one major element in this process. Compared to traditional sensor networks, WBANs face additional research challenges including signal propagation in/around a human body, power scavenging issues, fault tolerance, mobility, reliable MAC protocols, Quality of Service (QoS), biocompatibility, and security. The huge amount of data collected by WBAN nodes demands scalable, on-demand, powerful, and secure storage and processing infrastructure. Moreover, WBANs have emerged as a promising technology for medical and non-medical applications. Other potential applications include interactive gaming, social computing, entertainment, and military applications.
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.
