Call For Papers

Wireless body area networks (WBANs) are revolutionizing healthcare via real-time monitoring and analysis of medical data, enabling novel human-centric services for, e.g., remote health monitoring, telemedicine, preventive care, disease detection and rehabilitation. To make this happen, novel technologies are required to provide dependable measurement and communications mechanisms from the data source to medical health databases.

Compared to traditional sensor networks, WBANs face additional research challenges including signal propagation in/on/around a human body, energy harvesting, fault tolerance, mobility, reliable protocols, Quality of Service (QoS), biocompatibility, and security. The huge amount of data collected by WBAN nodes insist scalable, on-demand, powerful and secure storage and processing infrastructure. Moreover, WBANs have emerged as a promising technology, in addition to medical, also for non-medical applications, such as interactive gaming, social computing and entertainment. This conference will explore the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying body area networks, including wireless communications, medical IoT, edge computing, AI and big data for health management.

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 communications engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, medicine, and other disciplines in both academia and industry.
