Dear friends & colleagues, 

due to numerous requests both full and short paper submissions for PETRA
will now be accepted until February 20.

The Pervasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments Conference
(PETRA) will be on Corfu Island from June 29 to July 1. It is an
interdisciplinary conference with focus on pervasive computing and assistive
technologies that range from assistive robotics to speech technologies,
machine learning, gesture analysis, orthotics, smart rehabilitation,
diagnostic game development, multimodal sensor fusion, vocational safety and
health, avatar design, virtual reality, and other topics.  

We would like to invite researchers working in the area of healthcare and
assisted living to submit their original research findings. Accepted papers
will be included in the conference proceedings and in the ACM Digital
