Application domains include, but not limited to, biomedical engineering, computer vision, defense, entertainment (e.g. computer games), human computer interaction, industrial design, interactive arts, Internet of things, logistics and transportation, smart buildings, physiological monitoring, prosthetics, robotics, smart garments, sports science, and vehicular networks.

In addition to the main track that covers general/mainstream topics, the BodyNets 2014 technical program will feature a series of special tracks and a couple of workshops that will focus on specific/emerging topics.


A proposal to organize a workshop should include the following information: (1) the title of the workshop, (2) name, affiliation and biographies of the organizer, (3) an abstract of no more than one page describing the aims of the workshop and the motivation for holding it and participating to it (target audience), (4) a workshop chair and a tentative list of participants / speakers, (5) the expected duration of the workshop, (6) a draft CFP of the workshop.


In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics, BodyNets 2015 features several special tracks that focus on specific, emerging or underrepresented topics. All special tack papers will be peer-reviewed with the same criteria and quality standard used in the regular track. All accepted special track papers will be included as conference papers in the proceedings.
