Call For Papers

Wearable biosensor systems are becoming increasingly pervasive. Although many of these devices currently target the consumer market, the potential for high-grade sensors is increasingly evident. These tools increase opportunities to measure physiology and behavior in the wild (ie., outside of the laboratory). Evolving algorithms and math models turn these measurements into actionable information. Applications range from performance monitoring and enhancement in athletes, soldiers, and first responders to assistive technologies that improve quality of life in chronic diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy. Additionally, the opportunity to change the conduct of clinical trials and basic chronic disease management is compelling.

The 13th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN2016) will address BSN research and offer participants the unique BSN forum to discuss the key issues and innovative solutions for sensor and systems development, math modeling and data management and interpretation, and communications. This meeting will highlight:

development of new wearable systems including electrotextiles and minimally invasive sensors
health and performance monitoring applications such as energy balance, hydration status, extreme performance and limits of performance, biomechanical fatigue and injury risk, environmental exposures monitoring, and aviation and diving safety
strategies for human and animal behavioral monitoring including mood state, cognitive status, vigilance, and sleep quality
clinical applications to improve objective health assessments, remote telemedical assessments, and everyday health status monitoring and systems that enhance patient self management and quality of life
characterizing quality of data and regulatory compliance requirements for medical management applications
wearable data security and privacy considerations
next generation body powered, nanosensors, and minimally invasive implantable measurement systems
Paper Submission. Papers can be up to 6 pages in length and must follow the style guide of IEEE Conference Proceedings. Paper templates and other author information are available on the conference website.

Clinician Paper Proposals. These submissions are limited to one page abstracts highlight existing or potential clinical applications for body sensor technologies. Preliminary research or planned study protocols based on preliminary research would be acceptable for these submissions. Because of the short length, these proposals are not intended to be thorough manuscripts, and the accepted proposals will not be published as a part of the conference proceedings. However, the accepted submissions will be considered for a poster presentation, oral presentation, or workshop, depending on the quality and interest in the work. As with all submissions, the proposal must follow the style guide of the IEEE Conference Proceedings.

Workshop Proposal/Tutorial Submission. Proposals can be up to 2 pages in length, should be concise and represent a coherent theme. These must be emailed as a PDF file to the BSN 2016 Workshop/Tutorial Administrator: Adam Potter (adam.w.potter.civ@mail.mil)
