Call For Papers

In recent years there is an increasing attention on the topic of “prolonging independent living” and “aging well”. Several initiatives all over the world have focused on the problem of helping the aging population with technology; funding programs have been launched like the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme promoted by the European Commission, together with the topic “ageing well” within the FP7 research area. The interest for the problem will even increase in the starting Horizon 2020 program. The general aim is the promotion of a healthier society, which constitutes a main social and economic challenge.

In this scenario Artificial Intelligence techniques can play a crucial role. The development of new AI-based techniques, supporting older adults and helping them to cope with the changes of aging and cognitive decline, represents one of the most advanced ICT areas: Robotics, Assistive Technology for Cognition, Sensor-based Monitoring Systems, Compensation Systems, Security and Ethics, Continuous Learning and Navigation Supports for in-and-outdoor Systems are the fields where AI may challenge its solutions and contribute to innovative technological changes.

The working group “AI and Ageing Society” has previously organized three Workshops on Technological Challenges and Scenarios for the Ageing Society in Brescia, Palermo, and Torino to discuss about technological roles and opportunities for Artificial Intelligence in the Ageing Society domain.

Following these activities, this year the group organizes the Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living with the goal of collecting contributions, ideas and new scientific and technological scenarios, as well as to discuss and disseminate results on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living.

Among the various topics of interest the workshop will also dwell on the synergies between Technology and Human Science studies beneficial to develop a fully accepted technology that also responds to the various users needs. This will be possibly explored through a round table discussion.

Demos and presentations on results of projects are envisaged, as well as discussions on impact and prospective for AI-based solutions in the AAL domain.

The contribution topics include (but are not limited to) the following areas:

Activity monitoring systems
Activity recognition
Human-environment and human-robot interaction
Novel sensors
Smart environments
Object recognition
Evaluation methodologies for AAL domains
Personalization of AAL Services
Intelligent User Interaction
Advanced Data Analysis Techniques
Ageing, mobility and transportation
Information Fusion
Ethical issues in AAL domains
AI techniques applied to AAL scenarios

Extended versions of selected AI*IA 2014 workshop papers will be considered for a special issue of the Intelligenza Artificiale journal.
