GoodBrother Workshop on Visual Intelligence for Active and Assisted Living

As part of the 21st International Conference on Image Analysis and
Processing (ICIAP) - https://www.iciap2021.org/

24 May 2022, Lecce, Italy


Paper submission deadline: 15 March 2022


It is a matter of fact that Europe is facing more and more crucial
challenges regarding health and social care due to the demographic change
and current economic context. The current COVID-19 pandemic is stressing out
this situation even further, thus highlighting the need for taking action.
Active and Assisted Living (AAL) technologies come as a viable approach to
help facing these challenges, thanks to the high potential they have in
enabling remote care and support. In this respect, AAL applications based on
computer vision, multimedia data processing and understanding, and machine
intelligence present several advantages in terms of unobtrusiveness and
information richness. Indeed, camera sensors are far less obtrusive with
respect to the hindrance that other wearable sensors may cause to people's
activities. In addition to that, a single camera can monitor most of the
activities performed in a room, thus replacing many other non-visual
sensors. Currently, video-based applications are effective in recognising
and monitoring activities, movements, and overall conditions of the assisted
individuals as well as to assess their vital parameters (e.g., heart rate,
respiratory rate). Nevertheless, as the other side of the coin, cameras are
often perceived as the most intrusive technologies from the viewpoint of the
privacy of the monitored individuals. This is due to the richness of the
information that this technology conveys and the intimate setting where it
may be deployed in. Therefore, solutions able to ensure privacy preservation
by context and design as well as to ensure high legal and ethical standards
are in high demand. This workshop aims to give forum for contributions
presenting and discussing image- and video-based AAL applications, projects
and research as well as initiatives proposing ethical and privacy-aware


This workshop is organised by the GoodBrother COST Action (CA19121) on
Privacy-Aware Audio- and Video-Based Applications for Active and Assisted
Living (https://goodbrother.eu/). The aim of Goodbrother is to increase the
awareness on the ethical, legal, and privacy issues associated to audio- and
video-based monitoring and to propose privacy-aware working solutions for
assisted living, by creating an interdisciplinary community of researchers
and industrial partners from different fields (computing, engineering,
healthcare, law, sociology) and other stakeholders (users, policy makers,
public services), stimulating new research and innovation. Goodbrother will
offset the "Big Brother" sense of continuous monitoring by increasing user
acceptance, exploiting these new solutions, and improving market reach. 


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, unobtrusive and
user-friendly image- and video-based AAL solutions for:

*	Lifelogging and self-monitoring
*	Remote monitoring of vital signs
*	Emotional state recognition
*	Food intake monitoring
*	Human activity and behaviour recognition
*	Personal and daily-life assistance
*	Gesture recognition
*	Fall detection and prevention
*	Mobility assessment and frailty recognition
*	Cognitive and motor rehabilitation


Accepted papers will be included in the ICIAP 2021 proceedings, which will
be published by Springer as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.


Paper submission timetable:

*	15 March 2022 - Paper submission deadline
*	7 April 2022 - Notification of acceptance
*	21 April 2022 - Submission of camera-ready papers
*	24 May 2022 - Workshop date
