Call for Doctoral Consortium and Student Travel Support Applications

PETRA 2019 - The 12th PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments Conference
June 5-7, 2019 - Rhodes, Greece

We cordially invite Ph.D. students to submit Doctoral Consortium and Student Travel Support applications to attend PETRA 2019 conference and workshops. More information is available at  Deadline: January 9, 2019

The mission of the Petra conference is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for emerging technologies in pervasive computing, human computer interaction (HCI), human robot interaction (HRI) and applications related to enhancing the quality of life, human performance at work and home, performing human assessment and skill training, and developing computational methods directly related to cyber- human issues.

The umbrella theme of the conference is pervasive ambient intelligent environments. It includes hardware and software innovations in the areas of multimodal human sensing, sensor devices and robots to enable persons with disabilities, machine learning algorithms, data fusion, motion analysis, computer aided rehabilitation, gaming, gesture recognition, tele-health monitoring, big data software methods, assistive devices for persons with impaired vision, mobility or other impairments needing support.

PETRA conference and workshop papers are published with ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM ICPS program. In addition, selected papers are invited to special journal issues, after the conference, such as the MDPI Technologies Journal.  Conference participants come from diverse backgrounds, countries, and areas of computer science and computer engineering expertise. There are also participants from other disciplines, such as psychology, medicine, and other areas. PETRA provides opportunities to mix methods from different narrow domains towards new ideas and innovations with applications that include manufacturing, healthcare, education, training, security, wellbeing, cognitive assessment, and other areas.
