45th Intelligent Sensing Program - Wearables for Diagnostics Event is Launched

KTN is launching its 45th Intelligent Sensing Program (ISP45) event which is themed on "Wearables for Diagnostics". The ISP45-Wearables for Diagnostics event will be held on 8th March 2017, in Bristol.  As usual, the ISP45 event will consist of an expert-presentation session and also a parallel exhibition session for industry companies to showcase their expertise, technologies, and capabilities, etc. For further details please see the event announcement message showing below:

45th Intelligent Sensing Program – Wearables for Diagnostics

8th March 2017. Bristol

Introduction

Key market needs in the monitoring of healthcare and wellbeing are being addressed by wearable technology: transforming the market for healthy living and sports over the past few years.

Young startups are competing directly with major electronic companies to create new wearable sensors/ body sensor networks to address an array of new healthcare sector needs, such as long term care, clinical diagnostics and rehabilitation, chronic disease care etc. The UK, as a World-leading key innovation base, has a vibrant wearable sensing community, rich research expertise, an active industrial base and also end-user communities. The wearables market is expected to continue to rapidly grow to reach over $19billion within the next two years. 

Improvements are needed in microsensors, low power microelectronics, wireless communication, connectivity, big data and data analytics to enable more-complex systems to further support these markets. To achieve such an objective, technology developers will face challenges in not only further improving the associated technologies, but also regulatory compliance and market acceptance.  Many of these challenges will need the close collaboration of different wearable technology stakeholders.  

This workshop will bring together end-user communities, technology providers, researchers, funding agencies and other key stakeholders in the UK, to:

·      Network

·      Share knowledge of market opportunities, needs and challenges

·      Discuss state of art of wearable sensing technologies

·      Develop new ideas and collaborations

In this event, we have invited major industry leaders, leading academic experts and end users to share their knowledge and expertise with participants. We are also providing exhibition space for innovators to showcase their technologies and capabilities.

The Presentations

The event consists of featured presentations from GSK, Plessey Semiconductors, and Imperial College, etc. covering topics in following thematic areas:

·      Needs and challenges for wearables in Healthcare

·      Design and Production of wearables technologies

·      Novel wearable research

·      Wearables for diagnostics

·      Business innovation and funding opportunities

For Exhibitors

The event also offers numbers of exhibition places during the event. Should you be interested in doing an exhibition please contact: liqun.yang@ktn-uk.org
