Call for Contributions 

With an aging population, it is a high priority to develop technological tools to maximize quality of life and to monitor automatically various aspects of health. 

This BMVA one-day meeting will present state-of-the-art developments in computer vision and machine learning to the design of smart environments and active and assisted living (AAL) applications. This is a broad domain which addresses different challenges, ranging from robust multi-sensor tracking, pose estimation, action and activity recognition, activity of daily living estimation, natural human-machine interaction, and data analytics. Applications include, but are not limited to, development of smart home systems, health care at home, automatic assessment of health status, real-time fall detection, automatic assessment of stress, depression, and cognitive state of patients, assessment of the benefits of rehab.

The meeting will be dedicated to bringing together researchers, both from academia and industry, with expertise or strong interest in systems and methods for well-being and health assessment. Researchers with healthcare or medical expertise are also welcome.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

People detection, tracking, and pose estimation
Fall detection and anomaly detection
Social signal processing
Emotional state analysis
Action and activity of daily living (ADL) recognition
Context-aware activity monitoring
Data analysis from heterogeneous sources
Behavior analysis
Human-machine interaction and interactive systems design
Assisted living systems
 We encourage submissions from students as well as academic and industry researchers, including interdisciplinary work and work from those outside of the mainstream computer vision community. 

Submission deadline: 

All those interested in presenting at this meeting are invited to submit an abstract of their talk https://goo.gl/forms/o7ei0jZjdy7hKPdJ3 <https://goo.gl/forms/o7ei0jZjdy7hKPdJ3> by 14th March (firm deadline).
