COST Action on Architectures, Algorithms and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments
The COST Office (Brussels, http://www.cost.eu) has recently approved a new COST Action on Architectures, Algorithms and Platforms for Enhanced Living Environments (AAPELE, http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/ict/Actions/IC1303).
This COST Action was proposed by Prof. Nuno M. Garcia, Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Beira Interior (Covilhã, Portugal, http://www.ubi.pt), and Researcher and Coordinator of the Assisted Living Computing and Telecommunications Laboratory (AALab - http://allab.di.ubi.pt) of the Instituto de Telecomunicações section in Covilhã.
The AAPELE COST Action addresses the issues of defining software, hardware and service architectures for AAL, on studying and creating more efficient algorithms for AAL, particularly those related to the processing of large amounts of data and of biosignals in lossy environments, and on the research of protocols for AAL or, with more detail, on studying communication and data transmission protocols for AAL.
This Action gathers around 40 researchers from 20 European and COST countries, and its first meeting should occur in September 2013. Interested researchers are invited to join in!
