ASSIST to host IEEE WAMII Workshop

+++ The IEEE WAMIII conference has been postponed to January 2021. Please stay tuned for updates coming soon. +++

The IEEE SA is delighted to announce the next in the series of WAMIII Workshops: Use Cases and Technical Considerations for In-Body Wireless Medical Devices taking place on 16-17 March 2020 at The Hunt Library in Raleigh, NC. In collaboration with the Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) at North Carolina State University, this workshop will address the technical challenges of security, communication protocols, and data validation while addressing the viable use cases for clinical research, therapy and pharmaceutical drug development. 

Why Attend this Workshop? Key learning opportunities and outcomes for all participants:

  • Understand and evaluate solutions for current technical challenges with inbody devices – security, communication disruption, sustainability, etc – directly impacting patient data validation and outcomes 
  • Learn why and how to evaluate which inbody devices are best for specific clinical research use cases 
  • Get better insight on how open source algorithms in wireless medical devices (on or in body) can unlock clinical research opportunities
  • Engage in knowledge sharing roundtables to define potential solutions for device vulnerabilities and enabling the seamless PPAN (personal patient area network) experience beyond the home and the site. 
  • Share ideas on where technical and data standards may mitigate challenges and vulnerabilities opening doors to responsible and viable use of these technologies.
  • Entertain the idea of participating in a live development lab to test and validate protocols for inbody wireless devices hosted by the ASSIST Center on NSCU campus and part of the IEEE SA WAMIII Development Network.

Our agenda is looking good. We encourage you to visit this site often for new speaker additions and potential session titles and times changes.
