This track solicits works related to the design, development, analysis and
evaluation of technologies and systems that will support (frail) senior
citizens and people with various types of disabilities.  It also includes
human behavior analysis solutions that clearly advance the field and chart
the future of behavior-sensing for the elderly and people with disabilities
along with their own issues and challenges.  This track is
multidisciplinary in nature and welcomes contributions from all fields and
expertise.  The diversity of human behavior, the richness of multi-modal
data that arise from its analysis, and the multitude of applications that
demand rapid progress in these areas should make this track of interest to
a wide range of participants and contributors from academia, industry,
civic organizations and government agencies.
