Call for Papers
First IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Protocols, Applications
and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments ))) PAPELE 2017 (((
co-located with the 15th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network
and Service Management (IM 2017)

Lisbon, Portugal, May 8-12 2017

Aim and Scope

The First IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Protocols, Applications
and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (PAPELE) will be held
in conjunction with IFIP/IEEE IM 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal from May
8-12, 2017. The workshop is supported by the University Politehnica of
Bucharest, the University of Beira Interior, the University of Nicosia
and the University of Wuerzburg.

Enhanced Living Environments (ELE) encompass all Information and
Communications Technologies' (ICT) achievements supporting true Ambient
Assisted Living (AAL) environments. ELE promotes the provision of
infrastructures and services for the independent or more autonomous
living, via seamless integration of ICT within homes and residences.
For this, ELE encompasses the latest developments associated with the
Internet of Things, to-wards designing services designed to better help
and support people, or as a general term, to better live their life and
interact with their environment. Both, in AAL and ELE, a multitude of
heterogeneous applications, involving different stakeholders, have to
communicate via a common network environment. Hence, infrastructures
have to become pervasive, with an increasing number of distributed
devices that will need to communicate between themselves, as well as with
centralized services. Moreover, in the context of mobility, temporary
colocation of devices will be exploited to build dynamic networks, without
a prerequisite infrastructure, or to complement existing communication
infrastructures with ad-hoc ones. The current networking infrastructures,
however, are mostly based on the Internet, and were not designed to support
the varying requirements for the dynamic interaction processes between human
beings, sensors and systems (e.g. machine-to-machine communication styles).

PAPELE 2017 will focus on management approaches, applications and technologies
to satisfy these requirement and thus enable a widespread usage of AAL/ELE
systems. It will cover different aspect related to the planning and the operation
of ELE platforms and the corresponding applications and services. Proposed
mechanisms, architectures and technologies can be evaluated against metrics
related to the different stakeholders in the ELE environments. The research
topics cover several areas in the design, planning and operational phase.

Topics of Interest

Authors are invited to submit papers that fall into or are related
to the topic areas listed below:

Technologies ranging from smart sensors to future communication
approaches and distributed platforms to support effective AAL systems:
Processing devices
Smart data manipulation
Distributed architectures supporting a multitude of heterogeneous sensor devices
Communication patterns between involved entities, e.g., sensors and actuators

Design, planning and operational issues of AAL / ELE systems and architectures
Design phase: Platform considerations, Protocol considerations
Planning phase: Capacity planning, Use-cases and daily life activities, Application modeling
Operational phase: Platform and service monitoring, Optimization techniques considering application quality, energy efficiency and resilience

Internet of Things and Internet of Everything related technologies enabling AAL/ELE
Interoperability between devices
Integrated management of IoT devices
Social information understanding
Enhancing social interaction among peers
Mobile social networks
IoT/IoE architectures
Emerging trends of context awareness in the IoT and IoE
IoE cloud-oriented systems

Applications and use-cases in the ELE / AAL domain
Stakeholders analysis and profiling
Pilot evaluation of proof of concept implementations
User interaction and user design aspects

Security and privacy related considerations in the ELE / AAL domain
Device security
Cloud security
Data access privacy

Submission Instructions

Paper submissions must present original, research or experiences.
Late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing
research are also encouraged. Only original papers that have not been
published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted.
Each submission must be written in English, accompanied by a 75 to
200 word abstract and a list of up to 5 key words. There is a length
limitation of 6 pages (including title, abstract, figures, tables;
exluding references) for workshop papers and 4 pages for short papers.
Submissions must be in IEEE 2-column style. Papers exceeding these
limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be
rejected without further review.
