Call for Special Session Proposals

Deadline for proposal submission: May 15, 2022

The IEEE International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN 2022) is sponsored by IEEE-EMBS to address the challenges in the emerging sensor medical/healthcare systems and networks. BSN 2022 will be co-organized with the BHI 2022 (IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics). The joint program (BHIBSN) will have world-renowned speakers from academic and research institutes, government agencies, and industry. Body sensor networks provide innovative ways to improve treatment outcomes and patients’ comfort. They offer novel ways to measure physiology, behavior observations from users. Leveraging innovative systems, communication modules, on-chip and off-line data processing and modeling, these measurements are turned into actionable information. Closed-loop BSN with therapeutic systems and interventional functions are becoming a reality.

IEEE BSN 2022 will be co-organized with IEEE BHI 2022 (2022 IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics), from 27-30 September, 2022. It will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of devices and sensors, hardware and software systems, predictive models, databases, and big data analytics that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, monitoring, storage, retrieval, analysis, visualization and interpretation of vast volumes of multi-modal biomedical data, as well as related social, behavior, environmental, and geographical data. It will also demonstrate the deployment of BSN informatics solutions that integrate key technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth, e-Health, human computer interface, telemedicine, bioinformatics, sensors, imaging, and public health monitoring, to achieve patient-centric and outcome-driven effective health care.

Proposals for Special Sessions

Special sessions within BSN 2022 will feature invited talks from leading researchers covering recent progresses on a specialized topic in multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary areas of health informatics, life sciences, health care, clinical applications, behavioral informatics, health data analytics and health informatics education. Non-technical talks on topics such as research funding, entrepreneurship, or technology transfer may also be included.

All submissions of invited talks in special sessions will be required to follow the 1-page paper format and will not be included in the IEEE Xplore Conference Proceedings. There is no requirement for full-length papers submission, but authors interested in publishing their paper in the Conference Proceedings, may submit, in addition to their 1-page paper, a 4-page paper, following the corresponding guidelines and deadline for full-length paper submission.
