Call For Papers

Assistive technologies provide a set of advanced tools that can
improve the quality of life not only for disabled, patients and
elderly but also for healthy people struggling with everyday
actions. After a period of slow but steady scientific progress, this
scientific area seems to be mature for new research and application
breakthroughs. The rapid progress in the development of integrated
micro-mechatronic tools has boosted this process. However, many
problems remain open especially as regards environment perception and
interaction of these technological tools with people. The goal of the
workshop is to give an overview of the state of the art of perception
and interaction methodologies involved in this area with special
attention to aspects related to computer vision and robotics.

The International Workshop on Computer Vision and Robotics
subsidiaries (ACVR) aims to bring together researchers working on
problems of robotics and vision related to developing assistive
technologies. Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to,
the following topics:

* Augmented and Alternative Communication

* Human - Robot Interaction

* Mobility Aids

* Rehabilitation Aids

* Domotic Healthcare

* Technology for Cognition

* Automatic Emotional Hearing

* Activity Monitoring Systems

* Manipulation Aids

* Smart Environments

* Safety and Security


The workshop will be opened with a keynote speech from Andrea
Cavallaro Professor of Multimedia Signal Processing at Queen Mary
University of London (QMUL)
