The workshop will address several challenges related to networking and communication issues in Sensors, wearable, and medical devices in the area of eHealth. Despite the importance of this issue, it is being addressed as part of general networking and communication venues. This workshop solicits unpublished research work related to the latest challenges, technologies, solutions and techniques pertaining to networks of sensors, networks of wearables, networks of medical devices, body area sensor networks, WSN for medical applications, integrating these with networks infrastructures (wired and wireless networks), integration of these networks with cloud systems, protocols and performance issues in these networks. This workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry and government in order to present the state of the art in the emerging area of networks of sensors, wearables, and medical devices in ehealth application.


Topics of the track consist of all aspects related to Communication, Computing, and Networking in CPS. They include but are not limited to:

• Networks of medical sensors.
• Communication and networking issues in wearable devices.
• Physical layer issues in networks of medical sensors and wearables.
• Routing and transport protocol design issues.
• Mobility effect on networking of medical devices.
• Communication issues in medical devices.
• Body area sensor networks and wireless personal areal networks..
• WSN for medical applications.
• RFID technology and medical applications.
• Integrating wearables and medical sensors with networks infrastructures
• Integration of wearables and medical sensors with cloud systems
• Energy optimization in wearables and medical sensors.
• Security and privacy issues in networks of medical devices.
• Secure wireless body sensor networks (WBSN) communications
• Data security and privacy in eHealthcare
• Secure connectivity in wearable devices
• eHealthcare security challenges in cloud
• Trustworthy wearable sensing devices
• Simulation and formal analysis of networks of medical devices.
• Surveys and state of the art reports in the area.
