Recognise2Interact: 1st Workshop on Human Factors and Activity Recognition in
Healthcare, Wellness and Assisted Living

In conjunction with 2013 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive
and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2013)
September 9th, 2013, in Zurich, Switzerland

Context-aware systems have the potential to revolutionise the way humans interact with information technology. The First Workshop on Human Factors and Activity Recognition in Healthcare, Wellness and Assisted Living (Recognise2Interact) aims to enable researchers and practitioners from both Activity Recognition and Human Computer Interaction to interact and bridge the gap between these two fields.

The workshop will provide a comprehensive overview on current technological solutions that benefit from the synergy of activity recognition and human computer interaction with particular focus to Healthcare, Wellness and Assisted living applications.

Researchers from both industry and research institutions are welcome to participate and submit their work to the workshop. Teams of researchers cooperating to meet the addressed challenges are encouraged to submit works sharing their experiences, approaches and lessons learned.

We seek contributions within, but not exclusively, the following application areas:

Interaction in hospitals and care institutions
Interaction with context-aware systems
Smart monitoring for rehabilitation and home motor training
Monitoring of dieting, food intake activities and alimentary behaviors in daily life
Ambulatory estimation of mental strain, stress, emotion and depression
Automatic assessment of the quality of life
Monitoring of home patients and analysis of sleep disorders
Analysis of gait, falling and lying in Assisted Living scenarios
Human, social, and organizational aspects of wearable context-aware systems
User Mobile Interaction

Contributions shall be submitted in form of research papers of 4-6 pages in length.
Contents should include a detailed description of the technical and/or theoretical advances in one or more of the workshop topics and an early validation of the proposal.
All submissions must follow the ACM Ubicomp2013 formatting guidelines available at

All the accepted papers must be presented at the workshop. They will appear in the ACM digital library and the supplemental proceedings of UbiComp2013.

Paper Submission Deadline: May 3, 2013
Author Notification: June 3, 2013
Camera-ready version due: June 20, 2013
