Special Thematic Session "Human Movement Analysis for the design and 
evaluation of technologies helping people with special needs"

*** Introduction ***
The evaluation of prototypes and systems often takes completion time and 
accuracy as success criteria. This usually involves how the user uses 
their pointing device or text entry system, and therefore the movements 
they make to be able to use them. Human Movement analysis can make an 
important contribution to the design and evaluation of user interfaces 
for digital applications.

Some experiments study the users’ movements by tracking and analyzing 
body postures and movements performed by the participants [1–3]. In the 
context of motor or visual impairments, movement analysis takes on even 
more meaning. People with disabilities often have to adopt different 
movement strategies depending on their motor ability or their perception 
of the environment. Assessing and analyzing users’ movements opens 
several perspectives to design adapted devices and interfaces, as well 
as to evaluate the comfort of use and ergonomics of interactive 

*** Challenges and call for contribution ***
This Special Thematic Session (STS) will discuss recent experience and 
contributions on Human Movement analysis for the design and evaluation 
of adapted user interfaces. The challenges in acquisition and analysis 
of data related to the Human Movement are many across different 
applications [4], and can be referred in terms of
  - design evaluation (i.e. ergonomics, feedback),
  - machine processing (i.e. sensors, gesture recognition)
  - and human factors (i.e. motor skills, morphologies, fatigue, comfort 
of use).

This Special Thematic Session will consider all aspects of research on 
movement analysis, which may include for example:
  - Activity recognition and event detection in Ambient and Assisted Living,
  - Tracking users’ movements with Internet of Things and Sensors 
Technology, including wearables
  - Adaptation of interfaces for individuals with special needs, 
modelling users, Assessment, Profiling and Personalization
  - Ergonomic evaluation of Assistive Technologies
  - Assessment and interpretation of Human Movement for diagnosis, 
rehabilitation and monitoring, applications for E-Health – Medicine and Care
  - Aspects of Universal Design for motion-based interaction, full-body 
interaction, etc.

Contributions to this STS have to be submitted using the standard 
submission procedures of ICCHP :
When submitting your contribution please make sure to select the right 
STS under "Special Thematic Session". Contributions to a STS are 
evaluated by the Programme Committee of ICCHP and by the chair(s) of the 
Submission Deadline for Contributions to STSs: April 1, 2020
