Call For Papers

Workshop on Computational Intelligence in Ambient Assisted Living Systems (CIAALS-18)
In conjunction with The 9th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies
May 8-11, 2018, Porto, Portugal

The 1st International Workshop on Workshop on Computational Intelligence in Ambient Assisted Living Systems (CIAALS-18) provides an international forum on the latest technologies and research on Computational Intelligence methods applied in Ambient Assisted Living Environments, Platforms and Systems. CIAALS-18 will be held on May 8-11, 2018 in Porto, Portugal in conjunction with the 6th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks, and Technologies (ANT-2018).


Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is an emerging multi-disciplinary field aiming at exploiting information and communication technologies in personal healthcare and telehealth systems and networks for improving the life of elderly, disabled and cognitively impaired people. AAL uses sensing technology embedded in objects, or in the environment or worn on the person to promote health and enhance well-being, or to help maintain an independent life at home and other context-aware environments. The data gathered by sensors is analysed to detect activity and infer knowledge about the physical, cognitive, or affective state of the person, recognising and classifying patterns, detecting trends and unusual or anomalous behaviour. Computational Intelligence and its algorithms, including nature-inspired methods, neural networks and swarm intelligence, have become effective in recent years in solving a diverse range of optimization and scheduling problems in AAL applications. Combination of computational intelligence methods with advanced software engineering technologies is crucial for handling a big amount of data of various types and origins and making AAL systems work efficiently. This workshop aims at bringing together international researchers and practitioners from different disciplines in order to provide a platform for presenting state-of-the-art developments in this area, to discuss recent advances and to exchange ideas on the current state of the art of Computational Intelligence methods and algorithms applied for AAL. Authors are invited to submit unpublished work, contributing with research papers, case studies and applications that present original scientific results, methodological aspects, concepts and approaches.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Intelligent and/or wearable sensors
- Human behaviour analysis and activity recognition
- Context-awareness and human-environment interaction
- Affective and social computing for AAL
- Nature-inspired intelligence methods
- Multimodal user interfaces and agents for AAL systems
- Internet-of-things for AAL
- Advances in distributed systems and computing techniques for AAL
- Innovative software engineering methods for intelligent systems
- Computational intelligence for e-health, m-health, and smart health
- Applications of Computational Intelligence in Health and Care Robotics
- Computational Intelligence for image recognition and speech processing in AAL
- Virtual Reality for AAL
