The Institution of Engineering and Technology Seminar on
Antennas and Propagation for Body-Centric Wireless Communications
Tuesday, 24 April 2007: The Institute of Physics, London, UK

About the Seminar

On-body communications is an area where standards are only just starting to be defined, therefore an ideal time to discuss and influence the debate on technologies.

This event will highlight pre-competitive research into how body-centric wireless networks (mainly on-body and off-body) should be implemented in a spectrally efficient manner without inconveniencing other radio users.

Key topics to be debated include

• Body-Centric Wireless Communications
• Electromagnetic Properties and Numerical Modeling of the Human Body
• On-Body Communication Channels at ISM, UWB and Millimetrewave Frequencies
• Wearable and Textile Antennas
• Flexible Metamaterials for On-Body Applications
• Antennas and Propagation for Telemedicine and Telecare including Implantable Devices
• Future Challenges and Industrial Applications

Who should attend?

This seminar will provide a vital source of information for wireless link engineers in mobile communication, ubiquitous computing and medical engineering. It will also be of interest to researchers in electrical and computer engineering, medical physics and physiological medicine, who may wish to explore the technology of wireless based body-centric networks and its abundance of new applications.
