Call for Papers

1st Special Session on
   Advances in Vision-Based Monitoring of the Elderly for a Smart home (AVME-24)
      (use https:// for X)

A special session to be held between 4-6 September, 2024 during the
AIiH: International Conference on AI in Healthcare, Swansea,

Camera-based systems for smart homes offer a comprehensive and
unobtrusive approach to monitoring the well-being of elderly
individuals within the comfort of their homes. By leveraging
computer vision and artificial intelligence, these unobtrusive
cameras can monitor daily activities, detect anomalies, and even
provide real-time insights into the well-being of seniors.

The goal of this special session is to provide a platform for in-depth
exploration and discussion of the latest innovations and challenges,
and bring together experts from healthcare, AI, gerontology, and
engineering to share insights, best practices, and collaborative
approaches in the development and implementation of smart home
solutions tailored for the elderly.

This special session welcomes both:
* full-length papers (12 pages plus up to 2 pages of references)
   of more mature research results, or
* extended abstracts (up to 3 pages), eg. of work-in-progress

Full-length papers will be included in the conference proceedings
published by Springer and abstracts will be archived (with DOI) on
the AIiH website.

The issues that the research will address include (but not limited to)
the following topics, but only as related to Elderly Monitoring,
that is not general action/behavior analysis:
1.  short/long term behavioral analysis (e.g., eating behavioural analysis)
2.  action quality assessment,
3.  activity recognition,
4.  temporal action detection/segmentation,
5.  facial expression understanding,
6.  vital sign monitoring using vision-based systems,
However, fall detection is already well-researched and is not suitable
for this workshop.
