Call for Workshop: International Workshop on Electromagnetics for Pervasive Healthcare and Biomedical Systems

Aim and Scope:

The recent enormous progresses in healthcare digitalization, pervasive remote assistance, and smart telemedicine are boosting the development and diffusion of biomedical systems and services that allow patients to play a central role in their personal care and health diagnostic and monitoring. In this framework, the electromagnetic fields play a crucial role since they can be exploited in many different ways, for example in ultra-fast radiocommunication systems for enabling telesurgery, or for diagnostics, prevention and care. The aim of this Workshop is to attract original research contributions on the main aspects of the electromagnetics for pervasive healthcare and biomedical applications. New challenges and alternative approaches will be addressed with particular reference on wearable/implantable biocompatible electromagnetic devices, biometric methods and applications based on electromagnetic fields for collecting and analyzing different categories of data (physiological, behavioral, emotional, environmental, etc.), and pervasive wireless technologies or biomedical systems (such as signal processing, machine learning, security and privacy issues, etc.) for improving citizens health and wellbeing.

Topics and scope:

  1. Wireless sensing technologies and pervasive edge computing
  2. Smart digital health systems and remote interventions enabled by ultra-fast radiocommunications
  3. Clinical applications of electromagnetic fields
  4. Telemedicine, telemonitoring and disease prevention
  5. Wellness measurement and monitoring through wireless sensors and biosensors
  6. Electromagnetic energy scavenging in pervasive healthcare environments
  7. Security and privacy issues based on wireless technologies
  8. Near-field/Far-field solutions for patient identification, localization, and monitoring
  9. Artificial intelligence in electromagnetism for diagnostic and care
  10. Electromagnetic compatibility
  11. Bioelectromagnetics
  12. Biodegradable and biocompatible antennas and wireless sensors
  13. Non-obtrusive WBANs (wireless body area networks) for wellness
  14. Human body movement reconstruction by fusing data
