Call For Papers

This track solicits works related to the design, development, analysis and evaluation of technologies and systems that will support senior citizens and people with various types of disabilities. It also includes human behavior analysis solutions that clearly advance the field and chart the future of behavior-sensing for the elderly and people with disabilities along with their own issues and challenges. This track is multidisciplinary in nature and welcomes contributions from all fields and expertise. The diversity of human behavior, the richness of multi-modal data that arise from its analysis, and the multitude of applications that demand rapid progress in these areas should make this track of interest to a wide range of participants and contributors from academia, industry, civic organizations and government agencies.
