Life expectancy horizon is in continuous growth, with an arising socio-economical needs of supporting the aging population. If this is stimulating a considerable research effort in the ICT field, there is a big gap between the complexity of available ICT devices and the needs of fragile individuals.

Positive Technology (PT) is a new paradigm investigating how ICT-based applications and services can be used to foster positive growth of individuals, organizations, and society. It refers to technologies designed for improving the quality of personal experience with the goal of increasing wellness, and generating strengths and resilience in individuals, organizations, and society.

PT could be framed in the wider notion of Ambient Assistive Living (AAL) while focusing on the holistic wellness of people, taking into account the cognitive, emotional and social wellbeing. Thanks to the advances in sensor technologies, and scientific findings, this field is in rapid growing and its application for monitoring and promote elderly wellbeing has become a concrete possibility.

CARE2020 aims at bringing together the most recent advances of Intelligent Systems  for PT and elderly wellbeing.


This workshop aims at bringing together the most recent advances of Intelligent Systems, for Positive Technology and elderly wellbeing, investigating a wide range of topics covering (but not limited to) the following:

Emotion recognition
Social interaction analysis
Facial expression analysis
Body gesture analysis
Human behaviour analysis
Physiological signal analysis
Ecological datasets
Mood induction
Virtual reality as a positive technology
Intelligent cognitive assistants
Activities of Daily Living recognition
Emotion-aware ambient intelligence
Natural Human-Computer Interaction

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

Full papers (12-15 pages, including references)
Short papers (6-8 pages, including references)
Submissions must be formatted in accordance with the Springer's Computer Science Proceedings guidelines <https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines>. Accepted manuscripts will be included in the ICPR 2020 Workshop Proceedings Springer volume. Once accepted, at least one author is expected to attend the event and present the paper. 


Workshop submission deadline: June 15, 2020
