Dear authors,

on behalf of PETRA'17 organizing committee, we would like to invite you to submit your papers to the 10th PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments (PETRA) conference. PETRA is a highly interdisciplinary conference that focuses on computational and engineering approaches to improve the quality of life and enhance human performance in a wide range of settings, in the workplace, at home, in public spaces, urban environments, and other.  

For more information regarding the conference, visit <> 
or contact us via [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ​.
