BSN 2019 Call for Papers 

The 16th IEEE International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN’19) is sponsored by IEEE-EMBS to address the challenges in the emerging sensor medical/healthcare systems and networks. BSN’19 will be co-located with the BHI’19 (IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics) at the UIC Forum, Chicago during 19-22 May, 2019. The joint program (BHI-BSN’19) will have world-renowned speakers from academic and research institutes, government agencies, and industry.

Body sensor networks provide innovative ways to improve treatment outcome and patients’ comfort. They offer novel ways to measure physiology, behavior observations from users. Leveraging innovative systems, communication modules, on-chip and off-line data processing and modeling, these measurements are turned into actionable information. Formation of closed-loop BSN with therapeutic and interventional functions is becoming a reality.

Authors are invited to submit full papers (4 Pages) and demo/poster abstracts (1 Page) presenting cutting-edge research related to the theory and/or practice of wearable, ingestible and implantable sensors and systems in healthcare/medical domains. All submissions must describe original research that is not published or currently under review elsewhere. Full papers being accepted will be indexed in ISI Web of Science, Scopus, IEEE Xplorer, and Google Scholar. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Prototyping of body-worn, ingestible and implantable sensor networks;
  • Novel chemical, biological and textile body sensors;
  • Flexible and/or stretchable electronic sensors and systems;
  • Ultra-low-power or battery-less solutions for longitudinal studies;
  • Machine learning, deep learning and decision support algorithms;
  • Body area communication protocols, models and theories;
  • Security, privacy and trust in body sensor network; and
  • Medical/wellness applications from pre-natal health to elderly care.

This year, BSN will recognize multiple awards from all accepted papers, including Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award, Best Poster Award, and Best Demo Award.
