CALL FOR PAPERS

BODYNETS 2014
9th International Conference on Body Area Networks
September 29–October 1, 2014
London, Great Britain

**************************************************************************
Special track: "Electromagnetic-Body Area NanoNETworks (E-BANNET)"

http://bodynets.org/2014/media/uploads/cfp-ebannet.pdf

In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics, BodyNets 2014 features several special tracks that focus on specific, emerging or underrepresented topics.
All special tack papers will be peer-reviewed with the same criteria and quality standard used in the regular track.
All accepted special track papers will be included as conference papers in the proceedings.

Organizing Chairs:

- Valeria Loscrì, INRIA Lille-Nord Europe, France

- Anna Maria Vegni, University of Roma Tre, Italy

- Sara Pizzi, University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria, Italy

- Josep Miquel Jornet, The State University of New York at Buffalo, USA

- Massimiliano Pierobon, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA


Abstract:

Recently, nanotechnology has emerged as a novel evolution in technology enabling the design of miniaturized devices at nanoscale level (i.e., nanorobots and nanoparticles). At this scale, the behaviors and characteristics of nanodevices require a deep understanding and a revision of well-known features of devices at the macroscale level.

A set of nanodevices, sharing the same medium (e.g., the biological tissue or the bloody flow) and collaborating for the same task, forms a nanonetwork. Nanonetworks are expected to expand the capabilities of single nanodevices and enable new nanotechnology applications in biomedical, environmental, military, industrial, and consumer fields.

Electromagnetic Body Area NanoNETworks (E-BANNET) represent a novel field of research that will allow the interconnection of various components to support health monitoring, medical diagnoses and treatment, telemedicine, sensing, and assistance to people with disabilities.

E-BANNET is intended to have a twofold aim of both telecommunications and electromagnetic issues in body area nanonetworks. The main goal of this special track is to involve researchers and academics from various and inter-disciplinary fields of study, such as electrical and electronic engineering, computer science, biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, materials science, bio-engineering, bio-technology, and nanotechnology.
