SITIS 2018 – The 14th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems

SITIS - International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Based Systems

UBIO 2018

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

Collocated with: 
26-29 November 2018 - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

Scope of the Workshop
The 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.

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;

• Target applicative scenarios:
- 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 events.
