Pattern Recognition Letters - Call for Papers
Special Issue on Learning and Recognition for Assistive Computer Vision

    Assistive Computer Vision refers to systems that support people with
    physical and mental problems to better perform daily tasks enhancing
    their quality of life.  The advances in learning and recognizing
    patterns are allowing a point of view in the definition and
    development of more efficient and effective assistive frameworks. In
    the light of this, it is important to collect the most recent
    advancements in learning and recognition algorithms to be exploited
    in different applications to be employed to assist the modern society.

    The aim of the special issue is to gather papers in which machine
    learning and pattern recognition are the key core in the design of
    advanced assistive computer vision systems to help human in tasks
    such as:

    ·         Rehabilitation

    ·         Training

    ·         Mobility

    ·         Assessment and diagnosis of physical and cognitive diseases

    ·         Improving quality of Life

    ·         Remote Healthcare

    ·         Safe and security

    ·         Remote Surgery

    ·         Ambient Assisted Living

    ·         Augmented Perception, Attention and Memory

_List of topics_

    We will invite authors to contribute with high quality paper that
    will stimulate the research community on building theory and
    applications of machine learning and pattern recognition to be used
    in real-life environments for assistive computer vision technologies.

    Research papers exploiting new and innovative methodologies of
    pattern recognition, computer vision and machine learning are
    solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

    ·         Augmented and Alternative Communication

    ·         Human - Robot Interaction

    ·         Mobility Aids

    ·         Rehabilitation Aids

    ·         Home Healthcare

    ·         Technology for Cognition

    ·         Activity Monitoring Systems

    ·         Manipulation Aids

    ·         Scene Understanding and exploration

    ·         Visual Attention and Visual Saliency

    ·         Smart Environments

    ·         Safety and Security

    ·         Ambient Assistive Living

    ·         Quality of Life Technologies

    ·         Navigation Systems

    ·         Sensory Substitution

    ·         Mobile and Wearable Systems

    ·         Applications for the Visually Impaired

    ·         Applications for hearing impaired

    ·         Applications for the Ageing Society

    ·         Datasets and Evaluation Procedures

    ·         Personalized Monitoring

    ·         Applications to improve health and well-being of children
    and elderly
