SCOPE:

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 at the surface of the human body to form Body Area
Networks (BodyNets).
BodyNets allow for unidirectional (monitoring) and even bidirectional
(effector) interactions.
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, systems
and application issues related to BodyNets.

BodyNets 2008 invites submissions that describe original, research work not
published and are not currently
under review elsewhere. The topics of interest include (but not limited to):
*  BodyNets Systems and Technology
  - Novel communication techniques and protocols
  - In-vivo, on-body, near-body networks
  - Performance modeling
  - System design issues
      + Powering
      + Reliability and fault-tolerance
      + Security and privacy, including HIPAA for medical applications
* HCI/Wearable Computing
  - Social impacts
  - Usability
  - Brain Computer Interactions
  - Wearable system design issues
  - Entertainment
  - Assistive Technologies (for aging and disabled)
* Medical Applications
  - Pervasive health care and patient monitoring
     + within hospitals and other healthcare delivery settings
     + in residential and other non healthcare delivery settings
  - BodyNets for Prosthetics
  - Novel medical applications of BodyNets

Extended version of technically superior papers will be invited for
IEEE JSAC special issue on Body Area Networks: Technology and Applications
(see: http://impact.asu.edu/BodyAreaNetworksCFP.pdf ) and meritorious papers
related to
multimedia issues will be invited for IEEE Multimedia.
