Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) aims to use Information and Communication Technology to develop new applications, product, services, and systems to address the needs of an ageing population. With the realisation of such solutions, the desired effect is to have a positive impact on quality of life, the management of health conditions, and improvements in overall wellbeing, whilst, at the same time, reducing the costs of health and social care provision. With the increasing prevalence of technology, AAL solutions aim to offer support in the home environment, in the community, and in the work environment. This Special Issue welcomes submissions on the recent advances in the research, design, development, and evaluation of AAL solutions in the support of improving the health and quality of life of an ageing population. Given the multi-disciplinary nature of AAL, this Special Issue invites participation from different research communities, ranging from data analytics, smart environments, sensor networks, wearable computing, pervasive computing, and information security. We invite the submission of original and unpublished work addressing, though not limited to, the following research topics:
- Mobile health monitoring
- Activity recognition
- Motion detection
- Mobile sensing
- Data visualisation
- Open data
- Knowledge representation and Ontologies
- Mobile Systems for AAL
- Decision support systems
- Homecare monitoring systems
- Vital Signs and Wireless Body Networks
- Healthy lifestyle promotion
- Internet of Things for AAL
- Security and privacy in AAL
- Big data management in AAL
