iWOAR 2023 - 8th international Workshop on Sensor-Based Activity Recognition and Artificial Intelligence
21. - 22. September 2023, Lübeck
Wearable sensors potentially enable for a better and unobtrusive recognition of human activity and the state of rest, sleep, stress and drive the ongoing trend of the quantified self-movement. As an enabling technology, powerful, while yet inexpensive MEMS-Chips (micro-electro-mechanical system) push the penetration of a broad variety of mobile devices. Thereby, these devices gain high interest, not only in terms of general customer products, but also as integrated systems in an industrial context, either way to enable continuous monitoring of complex life processes and workplace situations. Another challenge that research is facing concerns the limited human abilities of interaction in context of mobility and in situations, in which high attention is being demanded. New and alternative ways are needed to be found in order to take advantage of all human capabilities to enable safe and unobtrusive interaction.

This conference-like workshop is organized by the Technische Hochschule Lübeck and Universität zu Lübeck. It offers scientists, interested parties, and users in the area of sensor-based activity recognition and interaction the possibility to an exchange of experiences and a presentation of best-practice examples, as well as technical and scientific results. The workshop focuses on technologies for human activity recognition and interaction via inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes etc.) and their scientific applications. Thereby, the following topics and fields of application will be addressed:

Human Activity Recognition
Human Centred Artificial Intelligence
Human Centred Machine Learning
Human Data Imputation / Augmentation / Representation / Classification
Human Behaviour Intention Recognition
Quantified Self
Affective Computing
Context Awareness
Human Computer Interaction
Intelligent User Interfaces
Pervasive & Wearable Computing
Cyber Physical & Human Systems
Assistive Technologies
Ambient Assisted Living
Active & Healthy Ageing
Personalised Diagnostics and Therapy
Telemedicine and Biotechnology
Occupational Safety, Healthcare and Wellness
Industry 4.0
