Scope and Topics

Wearable communications and personal health management are current future trends in healthcare procedures. To accomplish this, new technologies must be developed to provide reliable measurement and communication mechanisms from the data source to medical health databases. Wireless body area networks (WBAN) are a critical component in this process. This conference aims to bring together researchers, academicians, industry professionals, and practitioners from around the world to discuss and explore the latest advancements, challenges, and future trends in the field of Wireless Body Area Networks. WBANs represent a burgeoning interdisciplinary research area that intersects wireless communication, healthcare, wearable technologies, and biomedical engineering.

The main track will be focused on these topics:

  • Novel wireless communication protocols for WBANs
  • Ultra-low power communication techniques
  • Integration of emerging technologies (5G, IoT) with WBANs
  • Cross-layer design for efficient communication in WBANs
  • Wearable and implantable sensors for health monitoring
  • Signal processing techniques for biomedical data in WBANs
  • Biometric sensing and recognition in WBANs
  • Advanced signal processing algorithms for noise reduction and feature extraction
  • Energy harvesting for WBANs
  • Power-efficient circuit and system design
  • Energy-efficient algorithms and protocols
  • Battery management and optimization strategies
  • Privacy-preserving data transmission and storage
  • Security challenges in WBANs and countermeasures
  • Authentication and access control in WBANs
  • Trust management in healthcare applications
  • Healthcare monitoring and management
  • Sports and fitness applications
  • Ambient assisted living and elderly care
  • Industrial and military applications
  • Integration with Emerging Technologies
  • Edge computing for real-time data processing
  • Integration with blockchain for secure and transparent data management
  • Human-computer interaction in WBAN environments
    • Wearable Antenna 
    • Filters for WBAN 
    • RF-modules for WBAN
