    Energy harvesting for WSN and IoT: Recent advances and applications in smart cities Energy efficiency in wireless sensor network (WSN) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been gaining increasing attention due to the limited battery powered devices. Notably, despite recent technological advances, batteries are expected to be consumed hastily for many applications. This problem is particularly severe when devices are deployed in hostile environments, where the replacement of batteries are prohibitively expensive and impractical. Therefore, energy efficiency is the main requirement in designing effective WSN/IoT structures for smart cities. The design of energy efficient protocols involves several aspects, including physical, MAC and network elements as well as application aspects. Recently,…

    Context-Aware, Smart and Cognitive Healthcare In this special session we will pay attention to the latest developments in context-awareness and smart environments applied to healthcare. This includes the already well-stablished concept of Smart Healthcare in smart cities, smart hospitals and, in general, in context-aware environments. The session will consider contributions in all layers: from the Physical layer (sensors, actuators), to the Application layer (apps, recommenders, etc.). Also, the session will open the door to contributions in the more recently introduced concept of Cognitive Healthcare, which considers the interrelation between artificial intelligence, IoT, context-awareness and healthcare. List of topics (not comprehensive): Context-awareness Context-aware environments Smart Healthcare Cognitive Healthcare Sensors and Actuators…

    Applications, challenges and benefits of Internet of Things Era in Biomedical Engineering and Healthcare Internet of Things (IoT) has many applications in the health domain including wearable support system to locate patients and doctors in the hospital, to detect adverse reaction to drugs, or the combination of sensors (Wifi). IoT is coming with useful things in the monitoring of vital functions of the body such as blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, cholesterol etc. Implantable wireless identifiers can be adapted to store health records of patient with chronic disease. IoT applications have a major impact on independent assisted living, support for aging people (things can send out regular alerts, e.g. for…
