CALL FOR PAPERS
9th International Conference on Body Area Networks
BODYNETS 2014
29 September - 1 October 2014
London, Great Britain
in collaboration with ACM SIGCHI
***************************************************

SCOPE
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).
