Proposals for Workshop and Tutorial Sessions are invited for submission between November 1, 2016 and January 9, 2017. The activities are subdivided into pre-conference and post conference workshops/tutorials. Pre-conference activities will be held on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, from 9.00 AM – 5.00 PM. Post-conference activities will be held on Friday, May 12 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
At the moment, BSN’17’ is accepting proposals for the following sessions:
Workshops (pre & post-conference)
Workshops will be focused on new directions and innovative solutions for wearable sensor and systems development, data management and interpretation, and communications. A workshop may be delivered by a group of leading researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to each registrant. A website will be made available to Workshop registrants to download any material provided by the Workshop organizer(s). Workshop organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Workshop. Speakers in workshops are not required to submit papers.
Tutorials (pre & post-conference)
Tutorials will provide reviews of a specific area related to body sensor networks and their application, and may also involve registrants through a hands-on experience or demonstrations. A tutorial may be delivered by individuals or a group of leading educators, researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to each registrant. A website will be made available to Tutorial registrants to download any material provided by the Tutorial organizer(s). The tutorial organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Tutorial. Speakers in tutorials are not required to submit papers.
The following Conference Program Themes should be considered for proposal submissions:
- Development of new wearable systems including smart textiles and minimally invasive sensors
- Technical developments in the area of low power electronics, energy harvesting and miniaturization
- Interaction of body-worn sensors with indoors measurement systems integrated into items of daily life (like chairs, seats, beds, etc.)
- Health and performance monitoring applications such as energy balance, hydration status, movement analysis, etc.
- Strategies for human and animal behavioral monitoring including mood state, cognitive status, vigilance, and sleep quality
- Clinical applications to improve objective health assessments, remote telemedical assessments, and everyday health status monitoring and systems that enhance patient self-management and quality of life
- Characterizing quality of data and regulatory compliance requirements for medical management applications
- Wearable data security and privacy considerations
- Next generation body powered, nanosensors, and minimally invasive implantable measurement systems
- Development of new and improvements of existing implants including the connection of these to external body sensor networks
To submit a proposal:
To submit a proposal, please follow these instructions:
- Proposals can be up to two pages in length, should be concise and represent a coherent theme related to the conference.
- A proposal must be emailed as a PDF file with “BSN’17’ Workshop/Tutorial” in the subject line.
- All proposals are to be sent to Dr. Marian Walter:
In general, there will be no funding available from the conference budget to cover travel expenses for speakers that are invited to participate in the conference. Thus, we encourage you to seek funding for such expenses, if needed, from either federal agencies or private sponsors.
Questions about proposals may be directed to:
