BSN2012: Int'l Conf. Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor NetworksDate: 9th May 2012 - 12th May 2012
Location: London, UK
Body Sensor Network (BSN) technology has gained significant interest in recent years from researchers both in academia and industry. With the development of innovative wearable/wireless/implantable biosensors, the applications for BSNs extend from in-vivo monitoring and intervention for healthcare, to fitness, life-style monitoring, sport and security.
The 9th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN 2012) will address the fast-growing BSN research and offer participants a unique forum to discuss the key issues and innovative solutions in current BSN research and its future applications. The conference features an outstanding set of peer-reviewed paper presentations, a number of invited lectures by leading academic researchers and industrial experts, and showcases and demonstrations of the latest BSN developments. In addition, a series of focused workshops and tutorials will be offered on a range of topics.
Topics to be addressed by BSN 2012 include, but are not limited to:
-Novel bioelectrical, biochemical, biophysical, and mechanical sensors
-Hardware considerations for BSNs
-Biocompatibility and materials
-Context awareness and multi-sensor data fusion for BSNs
-Quality of service and security issues
-Links from the body to environment sensing, smart dwellings, and home monitoring
-Wearable and implantable (or swallowable, etc.) sensor integration and development platforms
-Wearable biomotion sensors to monitor human activity for diagnosis, therapy, training, sports, etc.
-Value of BSNs to healthcare - hospital and community contexts
-Applications of BSNs
-Machine learning and pattern recognition/mining of large continuous BSN data sets.
Confirmed invited speakers include:
-Bert Gyselinckx (Holst Centre - IMEC)
-Juergen Mayer-Zintel (Texas Instruments)
-Jose del R. Millan (EPFL)
-Joseph Wang (UCSD)
