Call For Papers

Call for Paper - BSN 2014


The 2014 International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN 2014) will provide a unique forum for researchers and industry practitioners to discuss the latest work in various fields utilizing body sensor networks. Building on the success of the previous 10 annual meetings, the 11th BSN conference will be held at ETH Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE EMB Society. The main conference and workshops will take place on June 16-June 19, 2014.

Broad areas to be discussed at this year's conference include, but are not limited to:

* Sensors
* Communication & Networking
* Systems & Resource Management
* Algorithms & Signal Processing
* Medical & Performance Applications

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and shall not be under consideration elsewhere, with the exception of internal technical reports. BSN 2014 uses a double-blind review process for submitted papers. Author names and their affiliations must not appear anywhere on the submission. Submissions should be no more than 6 pages formatted in two-column IEEE conference style. All accepted papers will be published by IEEE and accessible online via IEEE Xplore. Two page poster submissions are welcome too, please see separate call on the website.

This year, early notifications of accept/major revision/reject will be sent. Authors of a paper marked "major revision" are invited to resubmit a thoroughly revised paper version for re-evaluation by the program committee. At least one author of each accepted submission is required to register and attend as paper presenter at the conference. A best paper award and runner-up award will be given. Excellent papers will be invited to a special issue of IEEE J-BHI.

Proposals can be at most 2 pages in length. Organizers are encouraged to ensure their proposal is as coherent and concise as possible. Additional details will be provided on the conference website.

With a population of some 370,000 inhabitants, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland. It is surprisingly compact, though, with a wealth of old churches, fountains, and cobbled streets with buildings, some of them more than 700 years old, housing charming galleries and small shops. Zurich is situated some 400 metres (1,340 ft) above sea level at the northern end of the 27 km (17 miles) long Lake of Zurich. In Mercer’s annual “Quality of Living” survey, Zurich regularly claims one of the top spots, as it does on Monocle’s “Most Liveable Cities Index”.

The Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, or - to use its German acronym - the ETH Zurich, was founded by the Swiss government in 1854 as a polytechnic and opened its doors in Zurich in 1855. ETH Zurich regularly appears at the top of international rankings as one of the best universities in the world. 21 Nobel Laureates have studied, taught or conducted research at ETH Zurich, underlining its excellent reputation.
