Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index), Scopus, Semantic Scholar and Google Scholar.

Scope

Biometric systems have been widely and mainly studied for its use in security applications. Nowadays, other applications, as biomedicine, psychology and/or forensic applications are using biometric information in order to get innovation and better successes.
Most of the today solutions however operate on different methods. The use of Multivariate Processing can reach specialized systems to provide possible best conditions for image processing.
Topics cover all biometric modalities, and multimodal systems, using any kind of sensor or range of acquisition.

Scope

The two EU FP7 Projects SEMEOTICONS - SEMEiotic Oriented Technology for Individual’s CardiOmetabolic risk self-assessmeNt and Self-monitoring and PEGASO - Personalised Guidance Services for Optimising lifestyle management in teen-agers through awareness, motivation and engagement organize this Special Session to jointly present and discuss innovative ICT solutions aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle and preventing disease.
SEMEOTICONS will focus on novel techniques and devices to assess and correlate biometric, morphometric, colorimetric, and compositional descriptors of human face as key indicators of an individual’s health status.
PEGASO will report on an innovative framework for the promotion of health services based on individual and environmental monitoring, feedback to the user, and social connectivity to motivate teen-agers to adopt healthy lifestyle.

Scope

The loss of a limb or limb function can be very debilitating and may require technological intervention. A person who looses an arm needs a prosthetic replacement; a person whose arm functionality has been compromised may be at an even greater disadvantage as the flail (or spastic) arm obstructs the function of an assistive device; a person who has lost a leg may be able to use crutches or a wheelchair, but the optimal solution is a prosthetic replacement. There are a myriad of conditions, which would necessitate the use of an artificial appendage or mobility device.
The complexity of dealing with Bio-devices of this kind stems primarily from the multidisciplinary nature of the topic and hence device development, require very careful consideration.
