Body Sensor Networks Conference 2017

Tuesday, May 9, to Friday, May 12, 2017

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.

The 14th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, BSN2017, wishes to accompany the ongoing 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.

When? May 9 to 12, 2017
Where? High Tech Campus, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Organized by Philips Chair for Medical Information Technology (MedIT), Helmholtz-Institute for Biomedical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University

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 High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, is a unique biotope for close academic/private partnerships and a major industrial hub in Western Europe. Hence, the role of industry as a technological driver of BSN developments and the interaction with the clinical community is a major focus of this year's conference.
