This Special Issue solicits the submission of high-quality unpublished review and research articles that aim at addressing technical issues and challenges associated with wireless body area networks. Submitted papers should emphasize on the development of new protocols and focus on performance evaluation and comparison with existing standards and practices. Both theoretical and experimental studies on practical applications are encouraged.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Network architecture for WBAN;
Machine learning for WBAN;
Resource allocation algorithms in WBAN
WBAN routing and MAC protocols;
M2M communication protocols;
Security and privacy;
Experimental platforms for WBAN;
Intra-WBAN and inter-WBAN protocol.
