Call for chapters

Call for chapters in the book entitled "Wireless Technologies for Biomedical Applications", to be published by CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group. The book will be a part of the Prospects in Biomedical Engineering and Applications – P-BioMed, book series.


Healthcare is a primary concern for technology which works collaboratively to enhance human’s quality of life. Innovations in Artificial Intelligence, Electronics, Information Theory and Wearable Computing complement each other to provide an arsenal of healthcare services and biomedical applications. Wireless networks are crucial for the interaction between these components, thus making it one of digital healthcare’s important pillars. 


Considering the importance of Wireless networks in healthcare, this book is dedicated to studying the innovations and advancements of wireless networks for biomedical application and its impact. Recent advanced research in healthcare and biomedical applications are welcome. These contributions are focused on Body Sensor Networks, Mobile Networks, Internet of Things, Mobile Cloud Computing, Pervasive Computing and Wearable Computing, as well as, significant depth surveys and reviews about healthcare applications. These topics will be of interest to readers from diverse groups of audience in different areas of specialty as telecommunication, electronics and computer engineering, technologists, and non-specialist readers.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to: 

  • Mobile cloud computing for healthcare
  • IoT for healthcare
  • Machine Learning in wireless technologies for healthcare
  • 5G spectrum slicing for medical applications
  • 5G for Remote health monitoring: Vital signs, location, and video monitoring
  • LTE-M for medical applications
