2010 International Workshop on Ubiquitous Body Sensor Networks (UBSN 2010)
In conjunction with
The 5th International Wireless Internet Conference
(WICON 2010)
Submission deadline: 15 Oct 2009
Recently, there has been increased investigation into new types of wireless
sensor networks located on or around the human body, which are generally
known as body sensor networks (BSNs). Following continuous advances in
wireless communication technologies, there has been growing interest in the
design, development and deployment of BSN systems in applications for
improving people's daily life, which has led to an increased demand for
interconnecting BSNs with other emerging wireless technologies, such as RFID
technology, wireless sensor networks (WSNs), Zigbee, Bluetooth, WiBree,
video surveillance systems, WPAN, WLAN, the Internet, and cellular networks.
With BSNs being incorporated into these technologies, BSNs have become
ubiquitous. As a result of this, and due to an increased demand for advanced
e-healthcare management systems in recent years, the marketing opportunities
for advanced consumer electronics and related services have greatly
increased. More and more autonomous and intelligent applications which are
closely integrated with a person's everyday life are being generated. For
example, by using BSNs to collect patient information, and by deploying
diverse wireless networking systems for enhanced diagnostic assistance and
action handling, better e-healthcare management systems can be designed for
providing more desirable services.
In this workshop, we solicit research papers (regular papers and posters) on
hardware for body sensors, system architectures, networking and
communication protocols, applications, testbeds and prototypes, biomedical
sensor data processing and sensor data management. In particular, we are
interested in the following communication issues:
* Intra-BSN Communication: The term "intra-BSN communication" defines
communications directly related to the user (within radio coverage of about
2 meters), which consists of two categories: (1) the communications amongst
the body sensors, which are deployed strategically on the human body,
implanted inside the body, or attached within in the person's clothing; (2)
the communication between the body sensors and the portable personal server,
which typically can be a cell phone, PDA or headset.
* Inter-BSN communication: The term "inter-BSN communication" defines
communications between the personal server and one or more access points.
The access point can be deployed as a part of a home or work infrastructure,
or strategically placed within a dynamic environment for handling emergency
situations. Inter-BSN communications will interconnect BSNs with the wide
range of networks which are easily accessible in daily life.
* Beyond-BSN communication: Beyond-BSN communication is used to interconnect
a BSN with the outside world, which enhances the application possibilities
and brings the coverage / range of body sensor systems a step further via
pervasive communication technologies, such as the Internet and cellular
The objective of this workshop is to bring together state-of-the-art
research contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address these
key aspects of Ubiquitous Body Sensor Networks. Original papers describing
completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other
journal/magazine/conference/workshop are solicited. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
* New applications of ubiquitous body-sensor networks, e.g., healthcare and
consumer electronics applications
* Remote health/fitness monitoring in ubiquitous body sensor networks, e.g.,
location and mobility issues
* Ambulatory monitoring (activity monitoring, fall detection, cardiac and
wellbeing monitoring) and BSN assisted rehabilitation, bio-motion, wellbeing
analysis and clinical applications
* Emerging engineering issues and wearable, implantable/ingestible sensor
integration and development platforms, e.g., new operating systems,
middleware, etc.
* Scalable and flexible network architectures and deployments for ubiquitous
body sensor networks
* Advanced body sensor devices, e.g., novel bioelectrical, biochemical,
biophysical, and mechanical sensors
* Networking and data transmission issues for ubiquitous body sensor
* Integrating emerging wireless technologies with ubiquitous body sensor
* Integration with ambient sensors for personalized smart spaces and
* Link to environment sensing, smart dwellings, and home monitoring
* Standards for light-weight communication protocols and integration with
heterogeneous networks
* Advanced algorithms for ubiquitous body sensor networks, e.g., routing,
data processing, packet scheduling
* Power efficient issues, e.g., low power RF transceivers, energy
scavenging, miniaturization, system integration
* Signal processing, context awareness and multi-sensory fusion
* MAC Protocols and QoS Designing for Intra-BSN Communication
* Mobile and multimedia supported ubiquitous body sensor networks
* Server side body sensor networks information processing, data mining,
transient pattern recognition, and long-term, predictive trend analysis
* Sensor data management issues for ubiquitous body sensor networks, e.g.,
publish-subscribe approach
* Query processing and optimization for ubiquitous body sensor networks
* Sensor data stream processing in ubiquitous body sensor networks
* Semantic Web technology enabled ubiquitous body sensor networks
* Adaptability and stability of ubiquitous body sensor networks
* Transactions and workflows in ubiquitous body sensor networks
* Information support, security, privacy, and fault tolerance issues for
ubiquitous body sensor networks
