Description

Following the successes of eight annual BSN workshops held at Imperial College in London (2004, 2005), MIT in Boston (2006), RWTH Aachen University (2007), Chinese University in Hong Kong (2008), the University of California at Berkeley (2009), Singapore (2010), and the University of Texas at Dallas (2011), we’re bringing the Body Sensor Networks (BSN) conference back to Imperial for 2012.


Body Sensor Network (BSN) technology has gained significant interest in recent years from researchers both in academia and industry. With the development of innovative wearable/wireless/implantable biosensors, the applications for BSNs extend from in-vivo monitoring and intervention for healthcare, to fitness, life-style monitoring, sport and security. BSN 2012 will address the fast-growing BSN research and offer participants a unique forum to discuss the key issues and innovative solutions in current BSN research and its future applications. The conference features a number of invited lectures by leading academic researchers and industrial experts. It will also include showcases and demonstrations of the latest BSN developments.


Topics to be addressed by BSN 2012 include, but are not limited to:

* Novel bioelectrical, biochemical, biophysical, and mechanical sensors;
* Hardware considerations for body sensor networks, including: Low power RF transceivers, energy scavenging, battery technology, miniaturization, system integration, process and cost of manufacturing;
* Biocompatibility and materials;
* Context awareness and multi-sensor data fusion for body sensor networks;
* Quality of service and security issues for body sensor networks;
* Standards and light-weight communication protocols for body sensor networks;
* Links from the body to environment sensing, smart dwellings, and home monitoring;
* Wearable and implantable (or swallowable, etc.) sensor integration and development platform;
* Wearable biomotion sensors to monitor human activity for diagnosis, therapy, training, sports, etc.;
* Value of BSN to healthcare – hospital and community contexts
* Applications of body sensor networks;
* Machine learning and pattern recognition/mining of large continuous BSN data sets.


We highly encourage submissions of tutorial proposal on all topics in the general areas of the BSN, especially tutorials bridging these areas, or presenting new perspectives in these areas. Proposals will be considered for half-day tutorials.


All submissions must be original, unpublished, and are not under
consideration elsewhere, with the exception of internal technical
reports. Submissions should be no more than 6 pages formatted to
the two-column IEEE conference style. Two page poster submissions
are also welcome. All submissions will be subjected to a rigorous
double-blind peer-review process. Authors must take special care
not to reveal their identities. For accepted papers, at least one
of the authors (with no double-counting allowed) must register for
the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the
paper to be included in the conference and its proceedings.
