The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Internet of People (IoP 2016)

Co-located with IEEE UIC 2016, IEEE ATC 2016,
IEEE ScalCom 2016 and IEEE CBDCom 2016
July 18-21, 2016, Toulouse, France

With the map of social individuals referring to people to cyber entities, Internet of People (IoP), which focus on personal information collection, characters modeling, and a wide range of applications. Together with the Wearable Devices and Brain informatics developing, Brain Research Plan and Social Computing will enrich the Physical, Social, Cyber and Thinking worlds and their fusion (Hyper world). Due to the expected pervasion of IoP and its impacts on human activity, it will quickly become an important field and hot interdisciplinary.

IoP topics include: Biometric Sensors and Biometric Identification Technology, Wearable Technology and Application, Brain Informatics Sensing and Processing, Body Area Network (BAN) technology and services, Social Computing and Collective Intelligence Network, Internet of Brain, Intelligence and Creation, Security and Privacy, Human Body signal collection, processing and communication theory, technology for Biomedical and healthcare application etc.

The International Conference on Internet of People (IoP) is a premier forum for sharing theoretical, experimental and operational results in relative fields. Besides the latest research achievements, we solicit original papers on a wide range of internet of people. The first IoP 2015 was held in Beijing, China and was a great success. IoP 2016 will be held in Toulouse, France.
