Dear colleagues,
The submission deadline for HBU'15 is extended for one week (15 June).
We will appreciate if you could circulate this among your students and
in your networks, and consider submitting papers.
Our apologies for cross-posting.

Warmest regards,
Albert+Ben+Diane

Call for Papers: 6th Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding
(HBU'2015)
to be held in conjunction with UBICOMP'2015, 7 or 8 September, Osaka, Japan

"Focus Theme: Behavior Analysis for the Elderly"

http://www.cmpe.boun.edu.tr/hbu/2015/
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Short Description:
The Sixth International Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding,
organized as a satellite to UBICOMP'15 will gather researchers dealing
with the problem of modeling human behavior under its multiple facets
(display of complex social and relational behaviors, recognition of
individual or joint
actions, personalization, etc.), with the focus topic of "behavior analysis
for the elderly".

While different aspects of mobile platforms and ubiquitous computing are
tackled in several venues, this workshop will solicit human behavior
analysis solutions that clearly advance the field, and chart the future of
behavior-sensing for elderly, which brings its own issues and challenges.
The HBU Workshops, previously organized as satellite to ICPR, AMI, IROS,
ACMMM, and ECCV Conferences, have a unique aspect of fostering
cross-pollination of different disciplines, bringing together researchers
of ubiquitous computing, multimedia, robotics, HCI, artificial
intelligence, pattern recognition, interaction design, ambient
intelligence, and psychology. The diversity of human behavior, the richness
of multi-modal data that arises from its analysis, and the multitude of
applications that demand rapid progress in this area ensure that the HBU
Workshops provide a timely and relevant discussion and dissemination
platform.

Keynotes:
Dr. Tanzeem Choudhury, Cornell University
Dr. Jakob Bradram, IT University of Copenhagen

Topics:
Concrete examples for admissible topics are:
-Applications for cognitive and physical health
-Ambient assisted living applications
-Smart personal assistants
-Mobile social networks for elderly
-User mobility modeling
-Behavioral grouping
-Participatory sensing
-Reality mining on phones
-Behavior analysis for emergency and disaster management
-Behavior sensing and personalization of mobile devices
-Context analysis
-Affective computing on mobile platforms
-User centric computing
-Activity and action recognition
-Mobile technology integration for robotics
-Benchmarking, databases and simulation tools

The HBU is organized as a full-day, single track event with invited
talks, and oral presentations.

Submissions:
Submissions must represent original material. Papers are accepted for
review with the understanding that the same work has been neither
submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference. All
manuscripts will undergo a rigorous review process by the members of
the program committee. Submissions are single-blind, 12 pages (or more)
LNCS style. HBU proceedings are published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS
series, and indexed in ACM DL.

You can submit a paper now at:

Important Dates:
15 June: Submission of full papers (extended)
6 July: Notification of acceptance
13 July: Camera-ready paper submissions
7 or 8 September: HBU Workshop

Special Issue:
A special issue proposal is prepared for IEEE Pervasive Computing.
