AI*AAL.it 2014 - Call for Papers
First Italian Workshop on
Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living
Pisa, Italy, 10 Decempber 2014 - Co-located with AI*IA 2014 Symp.

Workshop of the XIII AI*IA Symposium on Artificial Intelligence


In recent years there is an increasing attention on the topic of
“prolonging independent living” and “aging well”. Several initiatives
all over the world have focused on the problem of helping the aging
population with technology; funding programs have been launched like
the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme promoted by the
European Commission, together with the topic “ageing well” within the
FP7 research area. The interest for the problem will even increase in
the starting Horizon 2020 program. The general aim is the promotion
of a healthier society, which constitutes a main social and economic

In this scenario Artificial Intelligence techniques can play a
crucial role. The development of new AI-based techniques, supporting
older adults and helping them to cope with the changes of aging and
cognitive decline, represents one of the most advanced ICT areas:
Robotics, Assistive Technology for Cognition, Sensor-based Monitoring
Systems, Compensation Systems, Security and Ethics, Continuous
Learning and Navigation Supports for in-and-outdoor Systems are the
fields where AI may challenge its solutions and contribute to
innovative technological changes.

The working group “AI and Ageing Society” has previously organized
three Workshops on Technological Challenges and Scenarios for the
Ageing Society in Brescia, Palermo, and Torino to discuss about
technological roles and opportunities for Artificial Intelligence
in the Ageing Society domain.

Following these activities, this year the group organizes the Italian
Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living with
the goal of collecting contributions, ideas and new scientific and
technological scenarios, as well as to discuss and disseminate
results on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living.

Among the various topics of interest the workshop will also dwell on
the synergies between Technology and Human Science studies beneficial
to develop a fully accepted technology that also responds to the
various users needs. This will be possibly explored through a round
table discussion.

Demos and presentations on results of projects are envisaged, as well
as discussions on impact and prospective for AI-based solutions in
the AAL domain.

The contribution topics include (but are not limited to) the
following areas:


- Activity monitoring systems
- Activity recognition
- Human-environment and human-robot interaction
- Novel sensors
- Smart environments
- Object recognition
- Evaluation methodologies for AAL domains
- Personalization of AAL Services
- Intelligent User Interaction
- Advanced Data Analysis Techniques
- Ageing, mobility and transportation
- Information Fusion
- Ethical issues in AAL domains
- AI techniques applied to AAL scenarios


Papers should be formatted according to the LNCS format and they should
not exceed 16 pages. Submissions will be managed via Easychair.


Extended versions of selected AI*IA 2014 workshop papers will be
considered for a special issue of the Intelligenza Artificiale journal.


This workshop is the fourth event organized by the AI and Ageing Society
working group.
