CALL FOR PAPERS (apologies for multiple copies)

IEEE International Workshop on Internet of Things for Ambient Assisted
Living (IoTAAL)
In conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, San Diego, CA, USA, Dec 6 - 10,

Link to submit papers now available:

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) encompasses technical systems,
infrastructures, and services to support elderly people in their daily
routine, to allow an independent and safe lifestyle, as long as
possible, via the seamless integration of information and communication
technologies within homes and residences. Effective AAL solutions
require appropriate ICT algorithms, architectures and platforms, that
cannot leave out of consideration the development of new and innovative
approaches, particularly in the area of pervasive and mobile systems.
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is leading to smart objects being
capable of identifying, locating, sensing and connecting, and thus
opening possibilities for new forms of communication between people and
things, and things themselves. This workshop aims to investigate the
potential benefits gained when specializing the IoT for AAL, to avoid
redundancy and leverage the harmonization of the technological
approaches towards an increased Quality of Life for the current and
future ageing populations.

The focus of this workshop is on proposals of architectures, methods,
techniques, protocols, components and tools addressing the IoT paradigm
to support the Ambient Assisted Living requirements. These may include,
but are not limited to, the following topics:
- IoT communications for AAL and Enhanced Living Environments
- Mobile solutions for AAL
- IoT enabled signal acquisition, analysis, and processing for activity
identification and recognition in AAL
- Smart Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) for AAL
- Distributed sensing and alarming technologies for AAL
- IoT devices (smart objects) and cyber-physical systems for AAL
- E-healthcare, telemedicine and tele-monitoring through IoT in AAL systems
- AAL networks and systems architectures
- Green networking in IoT for AAL
- Security, privacy, and trustworthiness management in IoT for AAL
- Information processing for AAL communications
- Interoperability among IoT and AAL platforms
- Cloud and Mobile Cloud for AAL
- Algorithms and techniques for IoT enabled AAL data analytics
- Big data management in AAL
- IoT applications, systems, and testbeds for AAL
- Standardization activities of IoT for AAL
- Future directions in IoT for AAL

Paper submission deadline: July 1, 2015 (strict)
Acceptance/rejection announcement: September 1, 2015
Final workshop papers due: October 1, 2015

All final submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper
length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures
without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page
with over length page charge of USD100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 7
pages will not be accepted at EDAS. You may also use one of the
following templates for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter. Only PDF files
will be accepted for the review process, and all submissions must be
done through EDAS (

If you have any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts,
please contact the Workshop Program Chairs.
Important IEEE Policy Announcement: The IEEE reserves the right to
exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its
removal from IEEE Explore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Plagiarism policy: Papers should not contain plagiarized material and
have not been submitted to any other conference/workshop at the same
time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the
IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who
engages in either practice. Follow the link to learn more:
