Emerging flexible and wearable physical sensing devices create huge potential for many vital healthcare and biomedical applications including artificial electronic skins, physiological monitoring and assessment systems, and therapeutic and drug delivery platforms etc. Monitoring of vital physiological parameters in a hospital and/or home conditions has been of tremendous interests to doctors and healthcare practitioners for a long time. Physiological signals are important indicators of the vital signs of human health, and real-time monitoring of physiological signals can predict, diagnose, and potentially prevent life-threatening conditions, such as for stroke, cancers, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, neural disorder, chronic pain, obesity, etc. Furthermore, a real-life long-term monitoring of health could quantify the impact of treatment at home care. The IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS) will publish a Special Issue devoted to Wearable and Flexible Integrated Sensors and Systems. The goal of this special issue is (i) to provide a roadmap of circuits and systems for wearable and flexible sensor device; (ii) to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration in this emerging research field; and (iii) to report the state-of-art development of these circuits and devices with translational potential into the clinics. This special Issue brings together members of our communities to broaden their knowledge in emerging areas of research at the interface of the life sciences and the circuits and systems engineering.


Manuscripts describing original circuits/systems and bio validation (experimental or clinical) as well as reviews of emerging directions are solicited for this special issue, covering a range of biomedical and healthcare sensor related topics, including but not limited to: 

  • Low-power, Low-noise Circuits for Wearable Sensors
  • Wireless Integrated Sensor Microsystems and Circuits
  • Highly Sensitive and Highly Specific Sensor Interface Circuits and Signal Processing
  • Artificial Intelligence Circuits for Sensor Reasoning, Classification and Decision
  • Power Management and Energy Harvesting Circuits for Wearable and Flexible Devices
  • Emerging Flexible Materials for Wearable Sensors
  • Non-invasive Physiological Sensor Circuits and Systems
  • Flexible Sensor Interface Circuits and Systems
  • Portable Biomedical Sensing and Imaging Systems
  • Hybrid Biofeedback and Closed-Loop Systems
  • BioMEMS and Lab-on-Chip Sensor Interface Circuits and Systems
  • Smart Packaging for Wearable and Flexible Devices
  • Comfortable Home Healthcare Monitoring Sensors
  • Other Sensing Methodologies and Applications in Biomedical and Healthcare, e.g. Therapeutic Sensing System.

The manuscript for TBioCAS must be submitted online using the IEEE TBioCAS manuscript template and "Information for Authors", via the IEEE Manuscript Central found at the following Website address: Authors should select the Special Issue manuscript titled “WISEDT” instead of “Regular Paper”.  The length of a manuscript must follow IEEE format (template can be found on TBioCAS website).

Upcoming Deadline for International Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems (ISICAS) 2019

Submitted by on February 11, 2019 - 3:55am

The International Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems (ISICAS) 2019 invites high-quality submissions presenting original work in the areas of integrated circuits and systems. Topics in the areas of analog, digital, power, energy, biomedical, sensor interfaces, and communication systems are welcome. The submissions must describe integrated implementations in hybrid, SiP, or SoC forms of circuits or systems with experimental results. Extended versions of previously published recent conference papers with significant additional material are also welcome.

After the success of the first Symposium, the second will be larger and involve an additional journal. The Symposium will not produce proceedings as all accepted papers will be published in Special Issues of TCAS-I, TCAS-II, and TBioCAS shortly after the results are presented at ISICAS 2019. Author instructions may be found on our website.

All submitted manuscripts must conform to the formatting and page count limit rules set by TCAS-I, TCAS-II, and TBioCAS. The authors of accepted manuscripts, and those subject to (straightforward) minor revisions, at the time that the ISICAS 2019 Technical Program is drawn up will be asked to present their work at the Symposium. During submission, the answer to question “Please select the issue to which you are submitting:” in Step 6 of the submission process, should be “ISICAST2019”.

Call for IEEE CAS Trans. Papers

Submitted by on January 8, 2019 - 9:22am

The ISCAS2019 Organizing Committee invites authors of an accepted paper published in one of the following IEEE Transactions (co)sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society to present their work at ISCAS2019, subject to fit within the scope of the symposium, space availability and approval by the ISCAS2019 Organizing Committee.

  • IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – Part I: Regular Paper
  • IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – Part II: Express Briefs
  • IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology
  • IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems
  • IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems
  • IEEE Transactions on Multimedia
  • IEEE Design & Test

Papers published between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018, as well as those in the pre-publication list are eligible for presentation at ISCAS2019. Because these papers have already been peer-reviewed and published, the Transactions papers to be presented at ISCAS2019 will not be reviewed again. An abstract of the paper and a link to the publication hosted in IEEE Xplore will be included in the conference proceedings for the benefit of the ISCAS2019 participants, and will not be uploaded to IEEE Xplore after the conference. Approved requests for presentation must have one author/presenter register for the conference according to the ISCAS2019 registration instructions.

Submission Procedure

Please submit your request to present a published work at here. Your submission should use the template file uploaded here and please make sure your submission includes the following information:

  1. Title of the transactions/journal paper
  2. Complete Author List from the transactions/journal paper (with the presenting author underlined)
