The papers in this proceeding discuss current and future trends in wearable communications and personal health management
through the use of wireless body area networks (WBAN). The authors posit new technologies that can provide trustworthy communications
mechanisms from the user to medical health databases. The authors discuss not only on-body devices, but also technologies
providing information in-body. Also discussed are dependable communications combined with accurate localization and behavior
analysis, which will benefit WBAN technology and make the healthcare processes more effective. The papers were presented at
the 13th EAI International Conference on Body Area Networks (BODYNETS 2018), Oulu, Finland, 02-03 October 2018.
