Special Issue "Wireless Body Area Networks and Connected Health"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018).
Interests: wireless body area network; IoT; connected health; multimedia communication
Rapid development of wireless body area networks has significantly grown many mobile healthcare applications worldwide. Applying the Internet, sensors, communication and intelligent techniques to healthcare applications, which are defined as connected health, could significantly improve human wellbeing and reduce the overall healthcare cost. Connected health brings together multidisciplinary technologies to implement preventive or proactive healthcare by connecting devices and persons and build up the healthcare ecosystem. On the other hand, although connected health technologies could enable better health care and personalized medicine, there are still a number of challenges to be addressed to enable many applications worldwide. These challenges are not only from the technical aspects, but also from the clinical trials and health policies. Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original contributions related to wireless body area networks and/or the connected health to this Special Issue.
This Special Issue expects innovative work to explore new frontiers and challenges in the field of wireless body area networks and smart connected health research, including both networking and communication techniques, sensor design, resource management, security and privacy, decision support system (e.g., machine learning) and clinical trials, connected applications and services.
The particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Connected architectures and framework
- Wearable Technology
- Wireless body area networks
- Biomedical sensor design
- Device-to-Device communications for connected health
- Smart Connected Health
- Deep learning for connected health
- Data Analytics for connected health
- Low-power design for wearable sensors
- Policies and rules for connected health
- Computational intelligence for connected health
- Data-mining for Connected health
- Security and privacy-preserving for connected health
- Blockchain for connected health
- Body area network applications
- Clinical trial and practices
- System validation for connected health
