*Call for Papers: IJCAI 2009 Workshop on Intelligent Systems for Assisted
July 12, 2009, Pasadena, CA, USA

There is an emerging field of interdisciplinary research on devices and
environments designed to help people with cognitive disabilities due to
aging, disease, or accident live with greater independence, safety, and
community integration. Researchers are creating systems that use wearable or
environmental sensors together with machine learning to infer a user's
context and cognitive state in order to provide timely and non-obstrusive
help for tasks such as activities of daily living, navigation, and emotional

This workshop will bring together researchers in AI who traditionally attend
IJCAI with researchers from the pervasive computing, human-computer
interaction, universal access, and medical communities. Thanks to the
support of our sponsors, the workshop will provide *cash awards* to
distinguished submissions.

We welcome submissions on both applied and theoretical work on topics such

    * Methods and systems for recognizing activities of daily living
    * Ways to detect confusion and other user errors
    * Systems for detecting mood disturbances
    * Strategies for prompting and user interaction
    * Evaluations of particular systems in real world settings

Submitted papers should be prepared using IJCAI format styles and should be
between 4 and 8 pages in length. The deadline for submission is March 6,
2009, and authors will be notified by April 17. A link to the paper
submission system will appear at by March

*Program and Awards*

The workshop will present:

    * Talks based on submitted papers
    * Posters based on submitted papers
    * Reports from winners of the 2007 Microsoft Research grants competition
on Intelligent Systems for Assisted Cognition
    * Invited talks from distinguished researchers and practitioners

Three new submissions to the workshops will be chosen for Distinguished
Contribution Awards of $2,500 each. The winners of the awards will be
announced at the workshop.
