Monitoring and EviDEnce-based protocols, applications and platforms for active living and Aging - MEDEA

Effective AAL systems to be used for health/elderly monitoring, for example, need appropriate technological support. The technology is developed for new smart type of sensors, for networking / interconnectivity support, for data storing and processing. Integrated, resilient approach based on technologies capable to support interoperability (as in IoT and IoE newer models) are today more-than-ever needed. The workshop is meant as an opportunity where practitioners in the field can present results, showing technologies where body-worn sensor send its data to the hospital platforms, where a physician can request in natural language information about the whereabouts of the patient, that are translated automatically into processing algorithms that use correctly various formats data is being fed in.

Besides the different components required to realize AAL systems, the workshop aims to be a holistic investigation of the design, planning, and operational phases of such systems. The design phase covers platform, protocol and API considerations based on the specific application scenario. The planning phase then involves the specific use-cases and daily life activities. It combines application modelling and capacity planning to ensure a functional system. The third phase, the operational phase, highlights solutions and mechanisms integrating platform and service monitoring, control and optimization of user-relevant and service-relevant metrics like service quality, service reliability, and energy efficiency.

Workshop Topics

1. Technologies ranging from smart sensors to future communication approaches and distributed platforms to support effective AAL systems

2. Design, planning and operational issues of AAL systems and architectures

3. Internet of Things and Internet of Everything related technologies enabling AAL

4. Applications and use-cases in the AAL domain

5. Security and privacy related considerations in the AAL domain
