Our list of keynote speakers has been enriched by the presence of other three prominent experts in the field of biomedical engineering and wireless communications/information theory: Dr. Paolo Bonato, Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School, USA; Prof. Satoru Miyazaki, Laboratory of Information Biology, Dept. of Medical and Life Science, Japan; and Prof. Ezio Biglieri, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), USA.

A third panel discussion, dedicated to “ICT for Development and Disaster Recovery”, has been included in the programme, so as to discuss upon the role of ICT to improve the living and societal conditions in developing countries, and its beneficial support when disasters of different nature occur.
Two new tutorial proposals have been brought forward. The first tutorial by Prof. Constantinos Papadias, Athens Information Technology (AIT), Greece, will verge upon compact antenna systems, including transmission, reception and sensing techniques, and their applications, also within the biomedical field. The second tutorial by Prof. Ayman Elezabi, EENG Dept., American University in Cairo, Egypt, will be devoted to cognitive radios in the TV band and related issues (i.e., regulatory, technical and market issues).
Two one-day workshops have been envisioned. The first workshop by Prof. Peter Jung, Lehrstuhl für KommunikationsTechnik, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Germany, is based on the outcome of the EU's 7th Framework Programme project EUWB (www.euwb.eu) and will provide an overview of key industry application areas of UWB technology. The second workshop by Prof. Giovanni Pioggia, Interdepartmental Research Center "E. Piaggio", Faculty of Engineering, University of Pisa, Italy, is dedicated to pervasive healthcare and, besides the technical sessions, will also include one specific demo/prototype session.
PROTOTYPES AND DEMOS
A new demo by Dr. Pierre Jallon, CEA-LETI, France, will be shown at the prototype/demo sessions of ISABEL 2010. This demo, named SDR4ALL (Software Defined Radio for All), is based on the concept of software defined radio, which consists of introducing numerical and reconfigurable treatments as close as possible to the radio antenna.

ISABEL 2010 has a current portfolio of 28 special sessions with clear multidisciplinary topics, involving people from the fields of sciences, medicine and communications engineering. New special sessions are continuously being featured; the very last ones relate to telemedicine for space, neuroengineering, quantum communications, wearable computing and communication for e-health.

CogART 2010 (the 3rd International Workshop on Cognitive Radios and Advanced Spectrum Management), which this year will be held in conjunction with ISABEL 2010, features the following three special sessions: Cognitive Radio Ad-Hoc Networks, Localization for Cognitive Radios, and Spectrum Measurements and Sensing.
Networking during conferences is certainly productive, but there is a way to make it more effective! Do you want to find partners for your projects; authors or editors for your publications; clients or business partners for your products or services? ISABEL has devised and will launch a Match Making event in conjunction with this year's conference. As a registrant to the Match Making, you will have the possibility to indicate in your registration form the persons/companies that you would like to have a closed-doors meeting with and the scope of such a meeting. The staff of ISABEL 2010 will then carry out the match making process and inform you about your meeting schedules, if any. Note that for registrants of ISABEL 2010 and CogART 2010 this service is free of charge for up to two confirmed meetings. Please find our current list of potential Match Makers at: http://www.isabelconference.com/pdf/potential_match_makers_2010.pdf.
Take advantage of our competitive registration fees and register soonest at ISABEL 2010, CogART 2010 or the Match Making. Read more at: http://www.isabelconference.com/index.php?page=registration.
