Modeling Situation-Aware Ambient Assisted Living Systems for Eldercare

This paper presents methods that support domain experts in their top-down approach, as well as technically experienced developers in their bottom-up approach in the development of ambient assisted living systems.

A survey on situation-aware ambient intelligence systems

This paper gives an overview of existing projects and seminal developments within the scope of Ambient Intelligence (AmI), and identifies obstacles that avoid gaining SAW.

Analytics: Unpacking AIDS Policy in the Black Community

This chapter reviews major issues and trends in AIDS/HIV and IT literatures by focusing on health disparities in one historically underserved group; namely, Black Americans, and presents public health conceptual framework that augments this discourse by depicting those factors uncovered in traditional information technology/systems works.

Virtual Reality for Supporting Surgical Planning

This chapter presents a case of study of a Virtual Reality tool for supporting surgical planning, called VirSSPA, that has been already successfully applied in the University Hospital “Virgen del Rocio” (Seville-Spain).

Communication between Power Blackout and Mobile Network Overload

'BlaCom', an ICT-based concept for blackout communication, which addresses the time span between the occurrence of the energy blackout and the possible overload of the mobile phone network is proposed.

Making workflows situation aware: an ontology-driven framework for dynamic spatial systems

The main goal of the research project ProFlow is to leverage situation awareness in all phases of workflow management especially focusing on dynamic spatial systems as encountered, e.g., in the domain of road traffic management.

TreeWorks: Advances in Scalable Decision Trees

A heuristic is presented that allows TreeWorks to cope with observation sets that contain several distinct values of categorical data, as well as the ability to handle very large datasets by overcoming issues with computer main memory.

Opportunities and Obligations for Physical Computing Systems

This work considers three application areas: assisted living, emergency response systems for natural or man-made disasters, and protecting critical infrastructures at the national level to better understand physical computing's advantages.

Rapid Prototyping of Activity Recognition Applications

The CRN Toolbox is a tool set specifically optimized for implementing multimodal, distributed activity and context recognition systems running on Posix operating systems, featuring mechanisms for distributed processing and support for mobile and wearable devices.

A Conceptual Framework and a Toolkit for Supporting the Rapid Prototyping of Context-Aware Applications

A conceptual framework is presented that separates the acquisition and representation of context from the delivery and reaction to context by a context-aware application, and a toolkit is built that instantiates this conceptual framework and supports the rapid development of a rich space of context- aware applications.

Findings from a participatory evaluation of a smart home application for older adults.

Using the participatory evaluation process, residents guided the research team through development and implementation of the initial phase of a smart home project designed to assist residents to remain functionally independent and age in place.

Negotiation-Based Protocols for Disseminating Information in Wireless Sensor Networks

A family of adaptive protocols that efficiently disseminate information among sensors in an energy-constrained wireless sensor network, called SPIN (Sensor Protocols for Information via Negotiation), that perform close to the theoretical optimum in both point-to-point and broadcast networks.

It is postulate here that two core relations (representation and conformance) are associated to this principle, as inheritance and instantiation were associated to the object unification principle in the class-based languages of the 80’s.

Feature-based survey of model transformation approaches

A framework for the classification of several existing and proposed model transformation approaches is proposed, given as a feature model that makes explicit the different design choices for model transformations.
