May 27-30, Rhodes Island, Greece
Important dates
Paper Submission Deadline: Jan. 15, 2014
Poster Paper Submission Deadline: Feb. 15, 2014
Conference Theme
The PETRA Conference brings together different types of technology to address an important social and healthcare issue: as the world's population ages, there is growing interest in solutions for the in- home care of the elderly as well as for the care of people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other disabilities or traumas. PETRA (which means "stone" in Greek) reflects the needs of the domestic environment, or "Oikos" as it was known in ancient Greece, but from a technological perspective. People's living environments are particularly important in an increasingly crowded and complex world where the need for inclusiveness and connectivity with the rest of the world is key. PETRA addresses the fact that, as people grow older, they will increasingly rely on technology to be able to stay in their homes.
Topics and areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Wearable, ambient and wellness measurement and monitoring technologies
Service and socially assistive robots for rehabilitation
Computer Aided Rehabilitation
Tools, and techniques for designing, implementing and deploying pervasive applications in assistive environments
Machine learning and data mining tools for decision making
Sensor networks for pervasive care, reliability and availability
Robotics and automation in assistive living systems
Natural language processing and automated dialogue systems
Signal and image processing for ambient intelligence and pervasive computing
User Interfaces, usability and flexibility
Reasoning systems and machine learning for assistive environments
Cognitive behavior analysis and monitoring
Privacy, security and risk analysis of data sharing in assistive environements
Computer-aided Physical therapy and occupational therapy systems
Smart rehabilitation software
Devices and orthotics for physical therapy and rehabilitation
Human centered computing and the senior citizen
Telemedicine and biotechnology applications using pervasive computing
Social, ethical, legal and e-government issues in pervasive healthcare and aging
Social impacts of the use of pervasive technologies, government policy & access global healthcare, citizen standards and interoperability
Digital Cities of the future
