Workshop on Internet of Things for Ambient Assisted Living - IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, San Diego, CA, USA, Dec 6 - 10, 2015
CALL FOR PAPERS (apologies for multiple copies)
IEEE International Workshop on Internet of Things for Ambient Assisted Living (IoTAAL) In conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, San Diego, CA, USA, Dec 6 - 10, 2015.
*MOTIVATION AND SCOPE* Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) encompasses technical systems, infrastructures, and services to support elderly people in their daily routine, to allow an independent and safe lifestyle, as long as possible, via the seamless integration of information and communication technologies within homes and residences. Effective AAL solutions require appropriate ICT algorithms, architectures and platforms, that cannot leave out of consideration the development of new and innovative approaches, particularly in the area of pervasive and mobile systems. The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is leading to smart objects being capable of identifying, locating, sensing and connecting, and thus opening possibilities for new forms of communication between people and things, and things themselves. This workshop aims to investigate the potential benefits gained when specializing the IoT for AAL, to avoid redundancy and leverage the harmonization of the technological approaches towards an increased Quality of Life for the current and future ageing populations.
*TOPICS OF INTEREST* The focus of this workshop is on proposals of architectures, methods, techniques, protocols, components and tools addressing the IoT paradigm to support the Ambient Assisted Living requirements. These may include, but are not limited to, the following topics: - IoT communications for AAL and Enhanced Living Environments - Mobile solutions for AAL - IoT enabled signal acquisition, analysis, and processing for activity identification and recognition in AAL - Smart Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) for AAL - Distributed sensing and alarming technologies for AAL - IoT devices (smart objects) and cyber-physical systems for AAL - E-healthcare, telemedicine and tele-monitoring through IoT in AAL systems - AAL networks and systems architectures - Green networking in IoT for AAL - Security, privacy, and trustworthiness management in IoT for AAL - Information processing for AAL communications - Interoperability among IoT and AAL platforms - Cloud and Mobile Cloud for AAL - Algorithms and techniques for IoT enabled AAL data analytics - Big data management in AAL - IoT applications, systems, and testbeds for AAL - Standardization activities of IoT for AAL - Future directions in IoT for AAL
*IMPORTANT DATES* Paper submission deadline: *July 1, 2015 (strict)* Acceptance/rejection announcement: *September 1, 2015* Final workshop papers due: *October 1, 2015*
*SUBMISSION OF PAPERS* All final submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge of USD100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS. You may also use one of the following templates for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process, and all submissions must be done through EDAS (link TBA). Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found at here: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html If you have any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts, please contact the Workshop Program Chairs. Important IEEE Policy Announcement: The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Explore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Plagiarism policy: Papers should not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference/workshop at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who engages in either practice.
