iWOAR 2017 -- Call for Papers

4th International Workshop on
Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction

21-22 September 2017, Rostock - Germany

in-cooperation with ACM, SIGAI and SIGCHI

Ubiquitous systems are becoming an integral part of our everyday
lives. Functionality and user experience often depends on accurate,
sensor-based activity recognition and interaction. Systems aiming to
provide the user with assistance or to monitor their behavior and
condition rely heavily on sensors and the activities and interactions
that they can recognize. Providing adequate activity recognition and
interaction requires consideration for particular elements: sensors
that are capable of capturing relevant behavior, methods that reason
about sensor readings in the context of these behaviors, and
appropriate methods for assisting and interacting with the user. All
of these aspects are essential and can influence the quality and
suitability of the provided service.

Objective of iWOAR 2017 -- the 4th International Workshop on
Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction -- is to discuss
these challenges and possible solution approaches. The workshop
focuses on:

1. sensors, sensor infrastructures, and sensing technologies needed to
detect user behaviors and to provide relevant interactions between
systems and users

2. data and model-driven methods for intelligent monitoring and user
assistance that supports users in everyday settings

3. novel applications and evaluation studies of methods for
intelligent monitoring of everyday user behavior and user
assistance using sensing technologies

4. intelligent methods for synthesizing assistance and interaction
strategies using sensing technologies

iWOAR 2017 aims to foster the relationship between academia and
industry. We strongly encourage industry participants to present
challenges, ideas, experiences, novel applications, and studies of
existing methods. Accepted industrial papers will be presented in an
industrial session during the workshop.


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

- Human activity recognition
- Healthcare systems
- Cognitive systems
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Expert Systems
- NLP for intelligent systems
- Ontologies for intelligent systems
- Knowledge acquisition for intelligent systems
- Assistive systems in the healthcare and manufacturing
- Novel applications for assessing everyday behavior
- Smart homes
- Behavior monitoring and interpretation
- Human performance measuring
- Interaction techniques
- Intelligent user interfaces
- Input & output modalities
- Wearable computing and wearable sensing
- Context awareness
- Data mining and machine learning for sensor-based intelligent systems
- Signal reconstruction and interpolation
- Innovative wearable sensing technologies

Important dates

Submission deadline: 30 June 2017 (extended)
Notification: 30 July 2017
Camera ready version: TBA
Author registration: TBA
Workshop: 21 – 22 September 2017

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 2017 Proceedings. The ACM SIGCHI paper format
should be used with a maximum total length of 6 pages (including
references and appendices), although paper length can be flexible for
outstanding contributions up to an absolute limit of 12 pages. Papers
are to be submitted through the EasyChair submission system.
