The 5th International Conference on PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments
 
CALL FOR PAPERS
=======================================
PETRA 2012 (www.petrae.org)
June 6-8, Crete, Greece
=======================================

Conference Theme

The PETRA Conference brings together different types of technology to address an important social and healthcare issue: as the world's population ages, there is growing interest in solutions for the in- home care of the elderly as well as for the care of people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other disabilities or traumas. PETRA (which means "stone" in Greek) reflects the needs of the domestic environment, or "Oikos" as it was known in ancient Greece, but from a technological perspective. People's living environments are particularly important in an increasingly crowded and complex world where the need for inclusiveness and connectivity with the rest of the world is key. PETRA addresses the fact that, as people grow older, they will increasingly rely on technology to be able to stay in their homes.
=======================================

Topics

Topics and areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Tools, infrastructures, architectures and techniques for designing, implementing and deploying pervasive applications in assistive environments
  • Privacy, security and trust, especially risk analysis of sharing health data
  • Wearable, ambient and wellness measurement and monitoring technologies
  • Service and socially assistive robots for rehabilitation
  • Sensor networks for pervasive care, reliability and availability
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other rehabilitation technologies
  • Robotics and automation in assistive living systems
  • Natural language processing systems for assistive environments
  • Signal and image processing for ambient intelligence and pervasive computing
  • Reasoning systems and machine learning for assistive environments
  • Social, ethical, legal and e-government issues in pervasive healthcare and aging
  • Social impacts of the use of pervasive technologies, government policy & access
  • Global healthcare, citizen standards and interoperability
  • User Interfaces, usability and flexibility
  • Human centered computing and the senior citizen
  • Telemedicine and biotechnology applications
