KTN's online platform helps you to make the connections you need


The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) has refreshed its online platform to intelligently connect you to relevant events, funding, thought pieces and specialist staff to help your business innovate and grow.

You can discover content using your area of interest, from Electronics, Sensors, Photonics to transport; from space to health – all major UK economic sectors are covered. Once you have selected your interests, using our intelligent tagging system, we will then display rich and relevant content related to your area, often from surprising sources.

An example might be new satellite technology from the space sector that is applicable in the agri-food sector. KTN-UK.co.uk will help you form these unusual and valuable connections.

All content on the platform has been carefully curated by our team of innovation specialists – not by an automated algorithm – so you can be confident that KTN is connecting you to the most relevant cutting-edge information.


The move also marks a closer alignment with our main funder, Innovate UK , with the website branding making a clear visual link. Knowledge Transfer Network is Innovate UK's innovation network partner, and also works with other funders to provide innovation networking services and fulfil our mission to drive UK growth.

We link new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through our network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines expertise in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries. Connecting with KTN can lead to potential partners, horizon-expanding events and innovation insights relevant to your needs.

Bodynets 2013 - Cloud Assisted Cyber-Physical Systems

Bodynets 2013 runs between 30 September and 2 October in Boston, MA and this year features a special track on cyber-physical systems.

The advances of body area networks, mobile computing, wireless networking and cloud computing offer tremendous opportunities in providing newer and better cyber-physical systems (CPS). The main objective of this special track is to provide a medium for researchers and practitioners to present their research findings related to the synergy among cloud computing and various CPS-enabling technologies such as body area networks, sensor-actuator networks, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, RFID and the Internet of Things (IoT).

There is an open call for papers on the following topics of interest:

- Communication, information and software architectures- Integration techniques between clouds and CPS

- A cloud of clouds for CPS

- Massively distributed/deployable CPS

- Cloud-assisted data management, mining and processing for CPS

- Cloud-assisted decision support systems with CPS

- Data acquisition, exchange and dissemination methods

- Pervasive services for mobile cloud users- Resource management

- Security and privacy

- Energy efficiency

- Workflow management

- Intelligence and optimization between clouds and CPS

- Data visualization- Heterogeneity of in/on-body and ambient sensors/actuators

- Nanoscale sensors and communication in/on/around human bodies

- Applications and experience

something for everyone!

Authors are invited to submit regular papers (up to 7 pages each) or short papers (up to 4 pages each) in the ACM proceedings format. Up to two extra pages are allowed for each paper with extra page charges. See here for more details.

Key dates are:

Regular paper submission due: June 17  

Short, poster and demo paper submission due: July 15  

Notification for regular papers: July 15  

Notification for short, poster and demo papers:

July 29  Camera ready due: August 5
