Call for Contributions for
Special session | AIALT: Ambient Intelligence for Assisted Living and Telehealth

Ambient Intelligence (AI) has been adopted as a term referring to environments that are sensitive and responsive to presence of people and it is expected to become the next wave of ubiquitous computing. On the other side, telehealth is defined as the mode of delivering health care services and public health via information and communication technologies to facilitate the diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education, care management, and self-management of a patient's health care, while the patient is at the originating site and the health care provider is at a distant site. This will happen by incorporating intrinsic intelligence in pervasive systems to boost research focused on designing smart environments that utilize state-of-the-art advances in sensors and communication technology to support assisted living and telehealth.

Given the limitations imposed to cardiac patients, particularly elderly suffering from chronic diseases like Alzheimer, remote monitoring solutions, specifically wireless and wearable technologies, are of much interest and need to monitor the patient without diminishing his/her quality of life; these solutions are subject to constant improvements.

The aim of this special session is sharing latest progress, current challenges and potential applications of AI and Wearable Sensors (WS) for Assisted Living (AL) and Telehealth.

The topic suggested by the track can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas:

- Ubiquitous computing for assisted living

- Ambient assisted intelligence

- Ambient intelligence for telehealth

- Vital signs and wireless body area networks for AAL (Ambient Assisted Living)

- Internet of Things (IoT) for AAL

- Tele-Rehabilitation and AAL

- RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) and WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks) for AAL

- Signal Fusion in Ubiquitous Environments

- Smart homes for AAL

- Autonomous robotic systems for AAL

- Ambient intelligence for telecardiology

- Ambient intelligence for monitoring ADL (Activities of Daily Living)

- Context-aware Pervasive Systems for AAL
