This publication will aim at reporting on technological developments aiming at increasing the health and wellbeing of those living at home from a variety of perspectives, for example, safety, rehabilitation, encouragement of more positive lifestyles, etc. Submissions that use experimental data derived from real or simulated test-beds of smart applications and intelligent environments are especially encouraged.
