Call For Papers

The 5th International Conference on PErvasive Technologies Related to
Assistive Environments

CALL FOR PAPERS

=======================================

PETRA 2012 (www.petrae.org)
June 6-8, Crete, Greece

=======================================

*Conference Theme*

The PETRA Conference brings together different types of technology to
address an important social and healthcare issue: as the world's
population ages, there is growing interest in solutions for the in- home
care of the elderly as well as for the care of people with Alzheimer's,
Parkinson's and other disabilities or traumas. PETRA (which means
"stone" in Greek) reflects the needs of the domestic environment, or
"Oikos" as it was known in ancient Greece, but from a technological
perspective. People's living environments are particularly important in
an increasingly crowded and complex world where the need for
inclusiveness and connectivity with the rest of the world is key. PETRA
addresses the fact that, as people grow older, they will increasingly
rely on technology to be able to stay in their homes.

=======================================

*Topics*

Topics and areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Tools, infrastructures, architectures and techniques for designing,
implementing and deploying pervasive applications in assistive
environments
* Privacy, security and trust, especially risk analysis of sharing
health data
* Wearable, ambient and wellness measurement and monitoring technologies
* Service and socially assistive robots for rehabilitation
* Sensor networks for pervasive care, reliability and availability
* Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other rehabilitation
technologies
* Robotics and automation in assistive living systems
* Natural language processing systems for assistive environments
* Signal and image processing for ambient intelligence and pervasive
computing
* Reasoning systems and machine learning for assistive environments
* Social, ethical, legal and e-government issues in pervasive
healthcare and aging
* Social impacts of the use of pervasive technologies, government
policy & access
* Global healthcare, citizen standards and interoperability
* User Interfaces, usability and flexibility
* Human centered computing and the senior citizen
* Telemedicine and biotechnology applications
* Smart materials for rehabilitation
* Machine learning and data mining tools for decision making
* Devices and orthotics for physical therapy and rehabilitation
* See http://www.petrae.org/callpaper.php
