Call for Papers


Wearable communications and personal health management are the future trends the healthcare procedures are nowadays heading for. To make this happen, new technologies are required to provide trustable measuring and communications mechanisms from the data source to medical health databases. Wireless body area networks (WBAN) are one major element in this process. Not only on-body devices but also technologies providing information from inside a body are in the focus of this Conference. Dependable communications combined with accurate localization and behavior analysis will benefit WBAN technology and make the healthcare processes more effective.

The main track will be focused on these topics:

1. Wearable Computing

2. Embedded Devices and Medical Applications

3. In- and On-Body Communications and Networking

4. Systems and Applications

5. Antennas and Propagation

The program also consists of special tracks:

Special Track 1: Cloud-Assisted Body Area Networks (CABAN)

Special Track 2:  Antenna/Propagation and WiBEC project (APWiBEC)

Special Track 3:  Ultra Wide Band for Body Area Networking (UWBAN)

Special Track 4: ETSI Smart Body Area Networks (SmartBAN) in the IoT and M2M


All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

BODYNETS proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
