PETRA 2020: The 13th PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments Conference

June 30 - July 3, 2020
Corfu Island, Greece

We cordially invite you to submit papers to PETRA conference and workshops, which will be held on June 30 - July 30, 2020, in Corfu Island, 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, human performance at work and home, performing human assessment and skill training, and developing computational methods directly associated with 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, telehealth monitoring, big data software methods, assistive devices for persons with impaired vision, mobility or other impairments needing support.

PETRA 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, industrial engineering, 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. The conference papers will be published with the ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM ICPS program.
