      1st Baltic Workshop on Ambient Health Monitoring (AmbiHealth'2012)    

                     September 28, 2012, Luebeck, Germany                 



                            Call for Papers



The continuously growing life expectancy in combination with the massively

increasing cost of healthcare in most industrial countries leads to

challenges in the provision of appropriate healthcare services. Ambient

Living (AAL) is an active research field for developing new concepts and

integrated systems for the provision of assistive services for daily life

activities with a special focus on medical applications.


The workshop focuses on Ambient Health Monitoring as a novel paradigm of

healthcare provision in our daily living environment. In traditional medical

scenarios, specialised infrastructure and laboratories have been used solely

obtain the health status of a patient. With the advancement of medical

technologies, wireless personal medical appliances, and powerful commodity

devices (e.g., smartphones), radically new possibilities for real-time and

in-situ monitoring of health parameters have become possible.


Ambient Health Monitoring includes all aspects of comprehensive healthcare

services, including vital parameter sensing, reasoning, awareness,

self-management and intervention. Ambient Health Monitoring broadens the

of traditional medical data acquisition and intervention techniques to

technology in smart homes, mobile devices, and even in everyday objects,

furniture, clothes or toys. Ambient Health Monitoring therefore covers very

different environments, including laboratories, personal spaces, and even

scenarios. Ambient Health Monitoring also allows for real-time observation

individuals and larger groups, awareness systems for health status

and intervention based on self-organised health-related activities and

professional intervention. By advancing the use of Ambient Health Monitoring

technology in the context of daily living, we aim to foster an increasingly

healthy society.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* (Vital) Sensor Technologies

* Sensor Aggregation / Fusion / Reasoning 

* Fall Detection and Prevention

* Activity Recognition

* Situation Detection

* Wearable Sensors / Wireless Medical Monitoring Appliances

* Smart Homes / Smart Devices / Smart Clothes

* Telemedicine

* Mobile Health Applications

* AAL in Rehabilitation

* Personal Health Records (PHR)

* Context-aware Prevention / Intervention / Therapy

* Privacy / Data Security / Transparency / Acceptance

* Health Information Systems

* Self-Awareness / Motivation Techniques / Persuasive Interfaces

* Gamification / Serious Gaming / Elderly Gaming
