Body-Centric Wireless Communications is a new exciting means of mobile communications with the use of wearable and implantable wireless sensors connected through body-area networks. The list of potential applications is continuously growing with healthcare, defence, security, smart home and personal entertainment, just to a name a few. Chaired by Professor Yang Hao, Queen Mary, University of London and Professor Peter Hall, University of Birmingham, the seminar will offer you a unique chance to learn about the most recent developments in Body-Centric Wireless Communications. You will hear directly from an impressive array of acclaimed UK and international experts including Professor Guang-Zhong Yang, Imperial College London and Prof. Ronan Sauleau, Université de Rennes 1, France. http://conferences.theiet.org/body-centric/about/index.cfm
About the seminar
This seminar is aimed at research students, researchers, communications engineers and R&D specialists interested in theoretical and practical aspects related to body-centric wireless communications and its applications in mobile communications, medical and healthcare technologies and many others.
The day has been designed to give you a comprehensive insight into:
Flexible electronics and textile antennas for wearable applications
Antennas and radio channel characterisation for mm-wave Body-centric wireless communications
Medical and healthcare applications of wearable wireless sensor networks
Advances in human phantoms and implantable antennas
Body-centric wireless communications for defence and security applications
Antennas and propagation for body-centric wireless communications
Modelling, measurements and practical considerations
Industry standards and applications for healthcare, defence and security
In addition to session poster presentations will be on display during the seminar and throughout networking breaks, giving you the opportunity to meet the authors and peruse the explorative work they are undertaking in Body-Centric Wireless Communications. The seminar will be the fourth in the series of already successful events, and as the number of groups working in this area expands, promises to be another well supported IET meeting. Don’t miss a chance to network and exchange ideas with people defining cutting edge technologies!
