Deadline Extension CFP: AmI-07 Workshop: Ambient Assisted Living

Deadline extension: CFP: AmI-07 Workshop: Ambient Assisted Living
Darmstadt, Germany, 10 November 2007
Most industrialized countries face severe demographical and social changes: the average lifespan rises, more and younger people suffer from chronic diseases, the number of single-households with elderly or handicapped people increases, etc. As a result our society invested a growing share of its GNP into people in need of care, while at the same time the
quality of this care does not rise and often even drops.
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is a promising approach to overcome these problems. AAL provides
equipment and automated services that enable senior citizens to live longer independently and selfdetermined in their own homes. This reduces the need for special medical care and nursing services; and it improves the quality of these services, often at lower
cost for the society. Central to each AAL solution is a sound awareness of
the elders situation and their actual need for assistance and an adequate presence of the solutions.
In particular, Ambient Assisted Living provides
 automated support to carry out daily activities
 health and activity monitoring
 enhanced safety and security
 access to social, medical, and emergency systems
 promotion of social contacts
 context-based infotainment and entertainment.
This workshop will bring together experts from academia and industry to identify and discuss specific demands, approaches, and solutions with regard to awareness and presence in the AAL domain. Therefore, we solicit workshop submissions that present novel approaches and technologies in ambient intelligence, describe new applications of existing such technologies in AAL, or that propose future challenges for research in that application domain.
The workshop will consist of the presentations of the peer-reviewed papers and a panel discussion session that shall stimulate future research in AAL with respect to practical needs for AAL. Papers will thus be selected not only on their technical quality but also
based on their potential to stimulate this discussion.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
 Assistance demands of elders in general
 Reports on AAL field studies and their outcomes
 Specific demands of elders regarding awareness and presence
 Sensors to monitor location, behaviour, and physical state of humans
 Modelling human behaviour and identifying behavioural patterns
 Impact of monitoring technologies on the individual life
 Identification of health risks using various sensor data
 Models used to interpret and process the collected data of an individual
 Design criteria for human-machine interfaces and communication devices for seniors
 Human-machine interfaces which adapt dynamically to the capabilities of humans
 Dynamically adaptable and adaptive system architectures and platforms for AAL services
 Technology acceptance of assistance devices
Papers can be submitted of at most 10 pages in Springer LNCS format (as for the AmI07 conference). Proceedings will be available at the workshop. The intention is to realize publication of extended postproceedings as a book on the workshop theme by a recognized publisher after the workshop.
