iWOAR 2018 -- Call for Papers

5th International Workshop on
Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction

20-21 September 2018, Berlin - Germany

in-cooperation with ACM, SIGAI and SIGCHI

Wearable sensors potentially enable for a better and unobtrusive recognition of human activity and the state of rest, sleep, stress and drive the ongoing trend of the quantified self-movement. As an enabling technology, powerful, while yet inexpensive MEMS-Chips (micro-electro-mechanical system) push the penetration of a broad variety of mobile devices. Thereby, these devices gain high interest, not only in terms of general customer products, but also as integrated systems in an industrial context, either way to enable continuous monitoring of complex life processes and workplace situations.
Another challenge that research is facing concerns the limited human abilities of interaction in context of mobility and in situations, in which high attention is being demanded. New and alternative ways are needed to be found in order to take advantage of all human capabilities to enable safe and unobtrusive interaction.

This conference-like workshop is initiated and organized by the Fraunhofer IGD and the University of Rostock. It offers scientists, interested parties, and users in the area of sensor-based activity recognition and interaction the possibility to an exchange of experiences and a presentation of best-practice examples, as well as technical and scientific results. The workshop focuses on technologies for human activity recognition and interaction via inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes etc.) and their scientific applications.


The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

-Human Activity Recognition
-Human Performance Measuring
-Human Monitoring
-Wearable Sensing in Healthcare Informatics
-Wearable Computing
-Interaction Techniques
-Intelligent User Interfaces
-Input & Output modalities
-Context Awareness
-Machine Learning
-Artificial Intelligence
-Deep Learning
-Feature Extraction
-Data Classification
-Data Imputation
-Signal Reconstruction and Interpolation

Application Fields

-Ambient Assisted Living
-Technologies for Senior Living
-Quantified Self
-Lifestyle & Behavior Change
-Pervasive Healthcare
-Occupational Health, Health Care and Wellness
-Telemedicine and Biotechnology
-Assisted Production
-Maintenance and Service
-Alternative Control of Everyday Life's Products
-Assistive Technologies for Urban Environments

Important dates

Submission deadline: 15 June 2018
Notification: 30 July 2018
Camera ready version: TBA
Author registration: 05. September 2018
Workshop: 20 – 21 September 2018

Submission and Review

All submissions undergo a peer review process to ensure the
presentation of high quality content. Accepted submissions will be
published in the iWOAR 2018 Proceedings.

Submitting your research requires the author to prepare a paper using
the ACM SIGCHI Paper Format. Paper length is 4 to 10 pages
(including references and appendix). Papers are to be submitted
through the EasyChair submission system.
