Call For Papers

Context
Ambient intelligence — when performed through assistive technologies in the smart home context — can help, transform, and enhance the way people with disabilities perform their activities of daily living, activities that would otherwise be difficult or impossible for them to do. However, despite this fact, and despite the increasing trend toward the development of new assistive technologies to help people with disabilities, no real adoption tendency has been observed yet, regarding the targeted user groups. Indeed, users impairments and particularities are so diverse, that implementing complex technological solutions — mandatory for user adaptation — such as recognition and prediction of users activities, intent, and behaviors, represents a major challenge in terms of universal design.

Target Audience
The Book on Assistive Technologies in Smart Environments fills the need for a reference that helps artificial intelligence researchers to design smart environments targeting people with disabilities. It is an exceptional tool targeted for post- graduates, researchers, practitioners, scientists and developers of Smart Home Systems domain. Since assistive technologies originates form various concepts of hybrid intelligent systems, this book is also useful for conceptual and applied technologies of Artificial Intelligence. This book will be invaluable for both theoretical and practical applications of assistive technologies dedicated to smart environments with modern computational intelligence.

Topics of interest
• Architecture guidelines
• Security concepts
• Modeling for activity recognition
• Assistance based on non-invasive technologies (no camera, RFID, electrical device ID, ...)
• Methodologies for activity learning, prediction, and recognition
• Humane perspective of Smart Environments
• Smart Sensor Network
• Ambient Intelligent Network
• Energy Management

Chapters of this book are organized as follows:
• Part 1: Challenges for automatic assistance
• Part 2: Architectural and technological design advancements
• Part 3: Activity modeling, learning, recognition, and prediction
• Part 4: Assistance and personalization
• Part 5: Smart home security

Submission procedure
