International Workshop on Ubiquitous implicit BIOmetrics and 
health signals monitoring for person-centric applications

Collocated with: 
SITIS 2019 - 
26-29 November 2019 - Sorrento, Italy

Scope of the Workshop
The second edition of this workshop aims at bringing together both
theoretical and application research related to the emerging topics of
context and condition awareness provided by wearable sensors. In
particular, the wide availability of several such sensors on mobile
devices spurs a continuous evolution of related
applications. Moreover, nowadays less invasive and more acceptable
devices allow capturing even body signals like EEG and ECG. In the
future, the fusion of IoT, biometrics and wearable signal processing
technologies is expected to open new and unexpected scenarios.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

• Target technologies and methods:
- ubiquitous sensing and processing of biometrics;
- continuous biometrics profiling;
- dynamic updating of biometric template;
- health-signals based inference models;
- biometrics-based activity recognition;
- mobile privacy;

• Target applicative scenarios:
- human-centric applications in Smart Cities;
- personal health and wellness;
- elders care and assistance;
- activity monitoring;
- focus/stress estimation;
- psychophysical assessment;
- on-the-field soldiers monitoring

Paper submission will only be online via Easy Chair.

Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All
submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at
least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make
final paper selections.

All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the
conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by IEEE
Computer Society. Content will be submitted to the indexing companies
for possible indexing. They will be available at the conference.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
workshop. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single
registration for the workshop or the conference allows attending both
