Call For Papers

The PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments (PETRA) conference is a highly interdisciplinary conference that focuses on computational and engineering approaches to improve the quality of life and enhance human performance in a wide range of settings, in the workplace, at home, in public spaces, urban environments, and other. Outcomes of this conference have a broad impact in application areas that include, manufacturing, transportation, healthcare, energy systems, security and safety, robotics, biomedicine, environment and conservation, and many others. PETRA brings together very different types of technologies to also address important social and healthcare issues for sensitive populations, such as the elderly, persons suffering from chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, and other disabilities or traumas.

We would like to invite researchers working in the area of healthcare and assisted living to submit their original research findings to the PETRA conference.

Topics and areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Healthcare Informatics
Big Data Management
Data Privacy and Remote Health Monitoring
Therapy Games and Rehabilitation
