First International Workshop on Assistive Computer Vision and Robotics (ACVR 2013)

First International Workshop on Assistive Computer Vision and Robotics (ACVR 2013)

Assistive technologies provide a set of advanced tools that can improve the quality of life not only for disabled, patients and elderly but also for healthy people struggling with everyday actions. After a period of slow but steady scientific progress, this scientific area seems to be mature for new research and application breakthroughs. The rapid progress in the development of integrated micro-mechatronic tools has boosted this process. However, many problems remain open especially as regards environment perception and interaction of these technological tools with people. The goal of the workshop is to give an overview of the state of the art of perception and interaction methodologies involved in this area with special attention to aspects related to computer vision and robotics.

The International Workshop on Computer Vision and Robotics subsidiaries (ACVR) aims to bring together researchers working on problems of robotics and vision related to developing assistive technologies. Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topics:

·      Augmented and Alternative Communication
·      Human - Robot Interaction
·      Mobility Aids
·      Rehabilitation Aids
·      Home Healthcare
·      Technology for Cognition
·      Automatic Emotional Hearing
·      Activity Monitoring Systems
·      Manipulation Aids
·      Smart Environments
·      Safety and Security
