5th Workshop on Behaviour Monitoring and Interpretation - User Modelling,
(BMI KI'10)

Co-located with the German Conference on AI 2010, Karlsruhe,
September 21th

General BMI session
Monitoring what happens in the environment, what people do and how they interact with their surroundings is of interest in several areas, such as in ambient intelligence, health care applications, or mobile services. This workshop focuses on methods analyzing and interpreting the behaviour of individuals, or of small groups of people. This is for the purpose of intention recognition, triggering of smart home environment services, life routine logging, or generally for the investigation of how humans deal with specific problems in their everyday life.

While technological advances in sensing and processing have ushered in an unprecedented opportunity for realizing behaviour monitoring applications, much effort remains needed for the development of methods to integrate and exploit the available data for addressing specific applications. In addition to the general BMI topic, part of this year's workshop features a thematic focus section on "User Behaviour Modeling". Techniques and approaches to modeling user behaviours will be presented and discussed. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a paper on the general BMI topic or contribute a more specific paper on "User Behaviour Modeling".
Key Areas
Focus Topic on Behaviour Modeling
smart home services
adaptive services
assisted living
cognitive assistance
child behaviour monitoring
interactive systems and adaptive user interfaces
mobile devices for user profiling
shopper behaviour
abnormal user event detection

knowledge representation and reasoning
pattern recognition

After the success of BMI'07, BMI'08, BMI'09 "well-being" and BMI'09 "moving objects", this one-day workshop is intended as a forum for discussion, exchange of points of views, assessment of results and methods, and as a source of dissemination and promotion of the newest advances in the area of behaviour monitoring and interpretation. The program will include a number of presentations by the invitees representing several different aspects concerning the role of monitoring and interpreting behaviours of people and groups of people, followed by discussions. Authors of accepted papers will be encouraged to submit an extended version of their manuscripts for a book edition following the workshop.
