Call For Papers

Wearable biosensors are becoming increasingly pervasive. Although many of these devices currently target the consumer market, the potential for medical-grade sensors is increasingly evident. Body sensor networks increase the opportunity to measure physiology and behaviour outside the clinical setting. Means of communication, on-chip and off-line data processing and proper modelling turn these measurements into useful information.

Current BSN 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 hypertension, cardiac failure, COPD, kidney failure, diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia and others. Additionally, the opportunity to change the conduct of clinical trials and basic chronic disease management is compelling.

The High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, is a unique biotope for close academic/private partnerships and a major industrial hub in Western Europe. Hence, the role of industry as a technological driver of BSN developments and the interaction with the clinical community is a major focus of this year´s conference.

The 14th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN2017) wishes to accompany the ongoing BSN research efforts and to offer a forum for discussion of key issues, new directions and innovative solutions for sensor and systems development, data management and interpretation, and communications. This meeting will highlight:

development of new wearable systems including smart textiles and minimally invasive sensors
technical developments in the area of low power electronics, energy harvesting and miniaturization
interaction of body-worn sensors with indoors measurement systems integrated into items of daily life (like chairs, seats, beds, etc.)
health and performance monitoring applications such as energy balance, hydration status, movement analysis, etc.
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
development of new and improvements of existing implants including the connection of these to external body sensor networks

Paper Submission. Papers can be up to four (4) 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.
