PETRA 2021 - The 14th PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments Conference

June 29-July 2, 2021 - Corfu, Greece

We cordially invite you to submit papers to the PETRA conference, which will be held on June 29-July 2, 2021, in Corfu, Greece.

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.

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, telehealth monitoring, big data software methods, assistive devices for persons with impaired vision, mobility or other impairments needing support.
