BSN 2021 Workshops

Deadline for proposal submission: April 4, 2021

The IEEE International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN) is sponsored by IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS) to address the challenges in the emerging sensor medical/healthcare systems and networks.

IEEE-EMBS BSN 2021 will be co-organized with IEEE-EMBS Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) 2021 virtually, from 27-30 July 2021. It will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of devices and sensors, hardware and software systems, predictive models, databases, and big data analytics that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, monitoring, storage, retrieval, analysis, visualization and interpretation of vast volumes of multi-modal biomedical data, as well as related social, behavior, environmental, and geographical data. It will also demonstrate the deployment of BSN and BHI solutions that integrate key technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth, e-Health, human computer interface, telemedicine, bioinformatics, sensors, imaging, and public health monitoring, to achieve patient-centric and outcome-driven effective health care.

Body sensor networks provide innovative ways to improve treatment outcome and patients’ comfort. They offer novel ways to measure physiology, behavior observations from users. Leveraging innovative systems, communication modules, on-chip and off-line data processing and modeling, these measurements are turned into actionable information. Formation of closed-loop BSN with therapeutic and interventional functions is becoming a reality. Areas of interest for IEEE BNS 2021 include, but are not limited to: Prototyping of body-worn, ingestible and implantable sensor networks; Novel chemical, biological and textile body sensors; Flexible and/or stretchable electronic sensors and systems; Ultra-low-power or battery-less solutions for longitudinal studies; Machine learning, deep learning and decision support algorithms; Body area communication protocols, models and theories; Security, privacy and trust in body sensor network; and Medical/wellness applications from prenatal health to elderly care.

Proposal for Workshops

The BSN and joint BHI-BSN 2021 Workshops will cover the theme of  “Reshaping healthcare through advanced technology and AI-enabled health informatics for a better quality of life”, and are categorized into regular workshops and tutorials. Regular workshops will cover current and future development of wearables, implantables, mobile devices and body sensor networks for healthcare applications, intersecting health informatics, analytics, personalized medicine. Tutorial workshops will provide reviews of a specific emerging technology or application area of BSN, and may also involve registrants through a hands-on experience or demonstrations.

A workshop will be delivered by a group of leading researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half-day format with a nominal fee charged to registrants. The proposals will be reviewed by the Workshop Co-Chairs. Please note that accepted workshop submissions will be included in the digital program of BSN 2021 but will not appear in IEEE Xplore Proceedings.  A website will be made available to Workshop registrants to download any materials provided by the Workshop organizer(s). Workshop organizer(s) may provide additional material such as handouts to participants during the Workshop.

Proposal Submission

Please submit your workshop proposal by 4th, April through the EDAS management system ( Proposals should include the following information: Names and Affiliations of Organizers, Brief Workshop Description (including motivation, goals and intended audience, <500 words), Proposed Format (e.g., panel session, demonstration, invited talks), and Expected Duration (half day or full day). Presentations and materials offered to workshop registrants will be reviewed by the workshop scientific committee. The organizers are fully responsible for ensuring the quality of the workshop content.



Please login to EDAS at and follow the steps below:
1.Type in the title of the workshop. [note: The PDF of your extended abstract will be uploaded later]
2.Click the Submit button.
3.Add all authors of the abstract (each author must have an EDAS account)
4.Upload a PDF containing a short description (less than 500 words) of the proposed workshop including motivation, goals and intended audience as well as the proposed format (e.g., panel session, demonstration, invited talks).

5. The next page you see will have a large green check mark and a statement that the extended abstract was registered. Also, you will receive an email message confirming the submission.
