International Workshop on Assistive Technologies in Smart Environments
scm.ulster.ac.uk/atse/

at the IEEE International Conference Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2014)
scm.ulster.ac.uk/~bibm/2014/

November 2nd-5th, 2014, Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK
_______________________________________________________________________________

The workshop will hold a central position within the prestigious IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM-2014), held in the historic and vibrant city of Belfast, in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, on 2-5 November 2014.

Assistive technology is an umbrella term for any device, system or smart space that facilitates individuals or groups to perform a task that they would otherwise be unable to do, enhances their experience, or increases the ease and safety with which the task can be performed.

The goal of this inaugural workshop is to advance the understanding of the sensor and actuator technologies available in the homes of people availing of assistive technologies as well as understanding their context and well being arising from inferences of the sensor data. The workshop is relevant within the wider context of bioinformatics and biomedicine as older people in developed economies are likely to remain at home for longer and will need support from emerging technologies in order to cope at home as frailty, cognitive impairment, propensity to falls ans susceptibility to chronic diseases increases with age.

Therefore, the workshop presents the opportunity for those in the bioinformatics and biomedicine research community with an active interest in assistive technologies to participate at a relevant and focused workshop hosted within an internationally recognised conference.

The research topics we wish to explore include, but are not necessarily limited to:

Assistive technologies
Electronic assistive technologies
Personalised assistive technologies
Sensorised home environments
Human-in-the-loop actuation technology through persuasive cybernetics
Domestic robots and their role and applications in assistive environments
User level programmability of assistive environments
Data analysis from assistive technologies in the home
Integration between home-based assistive technologies and patient health data
User centered design of electronic assistive technologies
Usability of assistive technologies
Analysis of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) data
Inferring knowledge from ADL data
User interfaces for home-based assistive technologies
Use of prescription systems and assistive technologies
Experience from real world assistive environment deployment
Ecosystem enablers for assistive environments as an elder care delivery system

The goal of this inaugural workshop is to advance the understanding of the sensor and actuator technologies available in the homes of people availing of assistive technologies as well as understanding their context and well being arising from inferences of the sensor data. The workshop is relevant within the wider context of bioinformatics and biomedicine as older people in developed economies are likely to remain at home for longer and will need support from emerging technologies in order to cope at home as frailty, cognitive impairment, propensity to falls and susceptibility to chronic diseases increases with age.

Therefore, the workshop presents the opportunity for those in the bioinformatics and biomedicine research community with an active interest in assistive technologies to participate at a relevant and focused workshop hosted within an internationally recognised conference.

The ATSE2014 Workshop accepts both Long(maximum 8 pages, 2-column format) and Short (maximum 4 pages, 2-column format) papers that must be in PDF format. Papers should be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines. Template files can be found for LaTeX and Word at
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

All submissions must be made through the cyberchair system, by September 10th. You can submit your paper to the ATSE2014 Workshop at
https://wi-lab.com/cyberchair/2014/bibm14/scripts/ws_submit.php

Submissions will be evaluated and selected by the Program Committee members, based on the adherence to the theme of the workshop, originality and scientific soundness. Once the selection process is complete, the authors of the accepted abstracts will be notified by e-mail. All meeting participants must register for BIBM2014.

All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of IEEE BIBM Workshops and the IEEE digital library (IEEE Xplore).

If you have any further questions regarding the submission of papers, please do not hesitate to contact somone on our committee.

Best regards,
