                           CALL FOR PAPERS
Recognise2Interact: 1st Workshop on Human Factors and Activity Recognition
            in Healthcare, Wellness and Assisted Living
      https://sites.google.com/site/recognise2interactworkshop/

 In conjunction with 2013 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive
                 and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2013)
                 September 9, 2013, in Zurich, Switzerland
==========================================================================

The first workshop on Activity Recognition and Human Factors in Healthcare,
Wellness and Assisted Living (Recognise2Interact) aims to bring together
researchers and practitioners from Activity Recognition and Human Computer
Interaction to disseminate the latest accomplished  and/or ongoing
researches
focused on how activity recognition and context awareness can help to
improve
the interaction between humans and IT systems. The goal of the workshop is
to
bridge the  gap between these two fields and to help in identifying
opportunities
and challenges for  interested  researchers, companies and system
developers.
The workshop will provide a comprehensive overview on current technological
solutions
that benefit from the synergy of activity recognition and human computer
interaction
with particular focus, but not limited to, Healthcare, Wellness and
Assisted Living applications.

*WORKSHOP TOPICS INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO: *
* Sensors technologies and networks for unobtrusive monitoring of human
behaviour and activities
* Sensors patterns analysis techniques improving users’ interaction
* Context inference methods and behaviour discovering models for healthcare
and smart environments
* Gesture monitoring and recognition for natural interaction with
context-aware systems
* Long term activity recognition for pervasive applications
* Systems and methodologies for enhancing users’ experience

Researchers from both industry and research institutions are welcome to
participate and submit
their work to the workshop. Teams of researchers cooperating to meet the
addressed challenges
are encouraged to submit works sharing their experiences, approaches and
lessons learned.
The workshop focus fits with the ongoing European research network iCareNet
(www.icarenet.eu),
from which participation is welcomed.
We seek contributions within, but not exclusively, the following
application areas:
* Interaction in hospitals and care institutions
* Interaction with context-aware systems
* Smart monitoring for rehabilitation and home motor training
* Monitoring of dieting, food intake activities and alimentary behaviours
in daily life
* Ambulatory estimation of mental strain, stress, emotion and depression
* Automatic assessment of the quality of life
* Monitoring of home patients and analysis of sleep disorders
* Analysis of gait, falling and lying in Assisted Living scenarios
* Human, social, and organisational aspects of wearable context-aware
systems
* User Mobile Interaction

*IMPORTANT DATES:*
Paper Submission Deadline:  May 15, 2013 *(extended deadline)*
Author Notification:  June 3, 2013
Camera-ready version due: June 20, 2013
Workshop: September 9, 2013
