Call for Papers


The objectives of this conference are to advance medical diagnosis, treatment, and patient care through application of wireless communications, mobile computing and sensing technologies. It aims to provide an international forum to bring together researchers and experts from academia, healthcare organizations, research institutions, and industrial enterprises working in the field of wireless communication and health care to share ideas and discuss cutting-edge research, present experience with recent developments in healthcare delivery, and to provide practical guidance to policy makers and the setting of applicable standards.

Original unpublished contributions are solicited that can improve the knowledge, understanding and practice in the interdisciplinary design of efficient protocols and technologies to help implement and provide advanced mobile health care applications.

The topics of interest include but not restricted to
  • Emergency and disaster applications
  • Specialty and site specific applications
  • Wearable, outdoor and home based applications
  • Sensing of vital signs and signatures
  • Intra-body propagation and communication
  • Mobile devices for patient monitoring
