Ambient Intelligence and Ultra-Low Power Systems for Healthcare and Wellness Application Design Track @ DATE 2015

CFP - DATE A4 - Ambient Intelligence and Ultra-Low Power Systems for Healthcare and Wellness Application Design Track @ DATE 2015
Grenoble, France - March 9-13, 2015

The Design, Automation and Test in Europe conference and exhibition is the main European event bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers and vendors, as well as specialists in the hardware and software design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. The program of the conference is reach and coupled with a commercial exhibition. The Application Design Track is devoted to the presentation and discussion of design experiences with a high degree of industrial relevance, as well as innovative design methodologies and use of specific design technologies in different application domains. The Ambient Intelligence and Ultra-Low Power Systems for Healthcare and Wellness topic (A4) is one of the seven topics foreseen in the Application Design Track.
Please note that this year there are Special Days in the DATE 2015 programme focusing on two areas bringing new challenges to the system design community: (i) Designing Electronics for the Internet of Things (ii) Designing Electronics for Medical Applications

A4 Topic description
Medical, healthcare, and life science applications require increasingly smarter and smaller devices interacting among each other, with the environment and with the users in a smooth and smart way. Wireless body sensor network (WBSN) has emerged as a key enabling technology for future personal health monitoring systems. Personal and personalized is leading to a significant increase in both complex lab solutions as well as a myriad of consumer devices. This topic covers the use of ambient intelligence, wireless body sensor networks and wearable technologies for healthcare, rehabilitation and wellness. This includes but it is not limited to: 
  • technologies for ultra-low/zero power systems for personal vital signs monitoring; 
  • mobile systems for motor rehabilitation and assessment; 
  • (bio)feedback systems for rehabilitation and fitness based on wearable and mobile technologies; 
  • innovative implantable miniaturized sensors and actuators, 
  • personal health devices; 
  • power management, 
  • on-board performance optimization 
  • networking technologies for body area networks and ambient intelligence in wellness, healthcare and fitness.
