Virtual Conference, July 27-30, 2021

Download Call for Proposals

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN2021) is sponsored by IEEE-EMBS to address the challenges in the emerging sensor medical/healthcare systems and networks. BSN2021 will be co-located with the BHI2021 (IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics). The joint program (BHI-BSN) 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.

Authors are invited to submit full papers (4 Pages) and demo/poster abstracts (1 Page) presenting cutting-edge research related to the theory and/or practice of wearable, ingestible and implantable sensors and systems in the healthcare/medical domains. Selected papers will be invited to submit to a special series that will be published in the IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology https://www.embs.org/ojemb/. All submissions must describe original research that is not published or currently under review elsewhere. Full papers being accepted will be indexed in ISI Web of Science, Scopus, IEEE Xplorer, and Google Scholar. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Prototyping of body-worn, ingestible and implantable sensor networks;
  • Novel chemical, biological and textile body sensors;
  • Flexible and/or stretchable electronic sensors and systems;
  • Ultra-low-power or battery-less solutions for longitudinal studies;
  • Machine learning, deep learning and decision support algorithms;
  • Body area communication protocols, models and theories;
  • Security, privacy and trust in body sensor network; and
  • Medical/wellness applications from pre-natal health to elderly care.

This year, BSN will recognize multiple awards from all accepted papers, including Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award, Best Poster Award, and Best Demo Award.

BSN2021 will be a hybrid conference. It will provide dedicated networking social events and special topic workshops to encourage BSN2021 participants to exchange knowledge and insights, and to foster new collaborations.
