CALL FOR PAPERS  BodyNets 2010
The 5th Annual International Conference on Body Area Networks
September 10-12, 2010, Corfu Island, Greece.

Submission deadline: March 10, 2010

  ACM MONET special issue on "Ubiquitous Body Sensor Networks".

Recent advances in the field of wireless sensor networks have moved  
them beyond their traditional areas of application in monitoring of  
remote and mobile environments. Sensor networks are increasingly being  
deployed within and around the human body to form Body Area Networks  
(BodyNets). In addition to monitoring focused applications BodyNets  
allow also for closed loop systems incorporating actuators. They can  
be utilized in diverse applications such as physiological monitoring,  
human computer interactions, education and entertainment through  
interactive games. This conference will explore and explain the scope  
and challenges of designing, building, and deploying BodyNets. In this  
regard,  the conference aims to establish a forum to bring together  
research professionals from diverse fields including computer science,  
biomedical engineering and medicine in both academia and industry to  
address the technical, social, system and application issues related  
to BodyNets.

The conference invites original technical papers that were not  
previously published and are not currently under review for  
publication elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to:

1 Communications and Networking:
* In-body, on-body, and around body networks
* Communication techniques and protocols for BodyNets
* Scalable, flexible network architectures & deployments
* Networking and security issues for BodyNets
* Advanced propagation and channel model for BodyNets

2 Medical applications:
* Pervasive health care and patient monitoring
* Integrating BodyNets into the healthcare system
* Novel closed-loop applications of BodyNets

3 Systems and Technology:
* System design issues, and performance modeling
* Signal processing, reliability and fault-tolerance issues
* Emerging self-powered BodyNets
* Novel wireless communication technologies

4 Wearable computing:
* Wearable system design issues
* Entertainment and lifestyle applications
* Assistive technologies for independent aging
* Interactive Arts

Authors are invited to submit full papers of up to 8 pages, short  
papers of up to 4 pages, and poster paper up to 2 pages, in ACM  
conference proceeding format through ASSYST   
( If you  
have problems in accessing the ASSYST system, please contact the  
Conference Coordinator (Maria Morozova) at:  [log in to unmask]  
Detailed Instructions for ASSYST submission can be found from:

Distinguished papers accepted and presented in BodyNets-10, after  
further revisions, will be published in International Journal of  
Autonomous and Adaptive Communications Systems (IJAACS), and ACM  
MONET special issue on "Ubiquitous Body Sensor Networks".
