IMPORTANT REMINDER: Code of Ethics

All papers for the Life Sciences Conference must contain a statement about your ethics approval (or exemption), or why it is not applicable. If your paper does not contain a statement, please include it in the final upload of your paper.

The first IEEE Life Sciences Conference (LSC) will be held 13-15 December 2017 at University of Technology Sydney, 83-117 Broadway, Ultimo Sydney NSW 2007 Australia.  The overall theme of the conference is “Personalized Healthcare & Wearables”. The IEEE Life Sciences Technical Community (LSTC), which is supported by multiple IEEE member societies, is the sponsor of the conference. As such, the conference will cover diverse topics within the theme.

LSC 2017 will include tutorials and a scientific program composed of plenary talks, invited sessions, and poster presentations of peer-reviewed papers. In addition, there will be a host of special events, including a Standards Track, an IEEE Women in Engineering event, a High School Competition, an e-textile style fashion show, and an IBM Big Data/Watson event in partnership with the IEEE Big Data Initiative. All are encouraged to submit papers containing original contributions to be considered for presentation at LSC 2017. Accepted 4-page regular papers will be published in the conference proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore. To communicate late scientific findings and to encourage attendance by a broader audience, LSC 2017 will provide additional presentation opportunities via a second track featuring posters. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Smart devices and technologies
  • Smart garments/textiles
