9th International Conference on Body Area Networks

You are cordially invited to participate in the 9th International Conference on Body Area Networks (BodyNets 2014) to be held in London, Great Britain during September 29 to October 1 (Monday - Wednesday), 2014.

BodyNets 2014 aims to provide a world-leading and unique opportunity for bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines to plan, analyze, design, build, deploy and experiment with/on body area networks (BANs).

Sponsored by EAI and CREATE-NET , BodyNets 2014 will feature the state-of-the-art keynote speeches, parallel technical sessions, focused special tracks, interactive demo/poster sessions, informative co-located workshops and entertaining social functions. Here are several important notes and annoucements:

  • Keynote speeches by world authorities have been arranged: Prof. Guang-Zhong Yang (Imperial College London), Prof. Mischa Dohler (King's College London), Prof. Giancarlo Fortino (University of Calabria, Italy).

  • The technical program will consist of the main track and several special tracks:
    • Electromagnetic-Body Area NanoNETworks (E-BANNET)
    • UNconventional Intrabody Communication (UNIC) website
    • Technologies and Applications for Telerehabilitation (TAT)
    • Privacy, Security and Trust in Body Area Networks (PSTBAN)
    • Millimeter-wave Body Area Networks (MilliBAN)
    • Cloud-assisted Cyber-Physical Systems (CCPS)
    • Coding for Emerging Wireless Networks (CEWN)
    • Human Body Communications (HBC)
    • Antennas and Propagation in Body Area Networks (APBAN)

  • Each track has regular and short paper presentations.

  • All accepted conference and workshop papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to ACM Digital Library. They will also be submitted for indexing by ISI, EI Compendex, Scopus, Google Scholar and many more.

  • Best selected papers of Bodynets 2014 will be invited to be submitted (after significant extension and revision) to a special issue on IEEE Trans. on Affective Computing (more information will be available during the conference), Guest Editor. Prof. Giancarlo Fortino.

  • The Third Ultra Wideband for Body Area Networking Workshop (UWBAN-2014) is also co-located.

The BodyNets 2014 organizers are working hard to make this conference a great success and memorable for everyone. We very much look forward to meeting you in London in September 2014.
