Call for Papers

10th International Conference on Body Area Networks (BodyNets 2015), September 28–30, 2015, Sydney, Australia

BodyNets 2015 aims to provide a world-leading and unique opportunity for bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines to plan, analyse, design, build, deploy and experiment with/on body area networks (BANs).

We are soliciting high-quality original papers in the following topics (but not limited to):
1. Wearable Computing
Pervasive user interface
Context and situation awareness
Augmented reality
Sensory augmentation
Motion detection and activity recognition
User modeling and personalization
2. Embedded Devices and Medical Applications
High-confidence medical devices
Integration of medical devices with healthcare systems
Medical device plug-and-play
Assistive technologies for independent aging
Pervasive health care and patient monitoring
New medical diagnostics and treatments
Ambient assisted living
Virtual hospitals
3. Communications and Networking
Various types of BANs; e.g, in-body, on-body and around-body networks
Signal/information processing and communication models in BANs
BAN architectures and protocols
Power-efficient communications
Wireless energy transfer
Delay-tolerance, fault-tolerance and reliability in BANs
Cloud computing and BANs
Cognitive networks for medical bands
4. Systems and Applications - Ambient Intelligence
Sensing and actuation in BANs
Software engineering and systems engineering for BANs
Modeling, simulations and empirical experiments
Design and performance issues
Tools, testbeds and deployment issues
Wireless-to-bio interface/transduction
In addition to the main track that covers general/mainstream topics, the BodyNets 2015 technical program will feature a series of special tracks.

In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics, BodyNets 2015 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.
