CALL FOR PAPERS  BodyNets 2010
The 5th Annual International Conference on Body Area Networks
September 10-12, 2010, Corfu Island, Greece.
  http://www.bodynets.org/index.shtml
============================================================

Submission deadline: March 10, 2010

============================================================
  ACM MONET special issue on "Ubiquitous Body Sensor Networks".
  http://www.bodynets.org/docs/MONET-SI-UBSN-CFP.pdf
============================================================

OVERVIEW:

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.

TOPICS:
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

PAPER SUBMISSION:
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
  (http://assyst-online.org/submission/login/loadHome.do.php). If you  
have problems in
accessing the ASSYST system, please contact the Conference Coordinator

further revisions, will
be published in International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive  
Communications Systems
(IJAACS), http://www.inderscience.com/browse/callpaper.php?callID=1254
