14th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks
Tuesday, May 09, 2017, 8:00am
Wearable biosensors are becoming increasingly pervasive. Although many of these devices currently target the consumer market, the potential for medical-grade sensors is increasingly evident. Body sensor networks increase the opportunity to measure physiology and behaviour outside the clinical setting. Means of communication, on-chip and off-line data processing and proper modelling turn these measurements into useful information. Current BSN applications range from performance monitoring and enhancement in athletes, soldiers, and first responders to assistive technologies that improve quality of life in chronic diseases such as hypertension, cardiac failure, COPD, kidney failure, diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia and others. Additionally, the opportunity to change the conduct of clinical trials and basic chronic disease management is compelling.
The 14th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN2017) wishes to accompany the ongoing BSN research efforts and to offer a forum for discussion of key issues, new directions and innovative solutions for sensor and systems development, data management and interpretation, and communications.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. med. Steffen Leonhardt (Chair for Medical Information Technology) is the conference's Technical Program Committee Chair and one of the General Co-Chairs.
