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

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).

Guang-Zhong Yang (Imperial College London)
Antonio Liotta (Technische Universiteit Eindhoven)
Mischa Dohler (King's College London)
