SI Technology Aging 2014 : CFP Special Issue on Technology for an Aging Society
Call For Papers
Inteligencia Artificial (http://journal.iberamia.org/) is an open access journal promoted and sponsored by the Latin American Society Artificial Intelligence (IBERAMIA– http://www.iberamia.org). Due to the increasing interest in the development of methods and tools for increasing the health and the quality of life of the elderly, we are preparing a Special Issue on Technology for an Aging Society.
The proportion of older people is increasing rapidly all over the world. This trend has major social and economic implications. In order to reduce costs of formal health care and to increase the quality of life of the elder, technology needs to address various aging related physical and cognitive health problems such as deterioration of physical function, lack of medication adherence, cognitive decline and loneliness.
Artificial Intelligence Technologies have an increasingly important role for promoting healthy active ageing. These technologies have been successfully used during the last years to develop new health and e-health applications, to promote safe independent living, to decrease the isolation of older people, to provide specialized education environments for the elderly and so on.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to collect contributions, surveys, ideas, applications, case studies and relevant research advances on the topic of the impact of intelligent technologies in the aging society. Ideas and contributions from PhD students are also welcome.
Special focus is on multi-disciplinary approaches on the following, non-exhaustive, list of topics:
• AI for Health
o Rehabilitation systems (including games)
o Persuasive technology for health aging
o Smart houses
o Detection and prevention of psychological illness
o Medication adherence
• AI in Education
o Personalized e-learning
o Accessibility guidelines
o Digital literacy
o Serious games
• AI for the Social Inclusion
o Socialization and emotional wellbeing in aging population
o Intergenerational relationships
o Active ageing
o Accessibility guidelines
