Keynote Title: Wireless Sensor Networks for Home Health Care
Keynote Lecturer: Dr. John Stankovic
Keynote Chair: Dr. César Benavente-Peces

Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSN) composed of large numbers of small devices can be used for a wide variety of applications. In particular, these systems can be used to improve the quality of health care, be applied in the home or in large-scale assisted living facilities, and significantly contribute to longitudinal studies. After briefly describing a vision and architecture for such systems, I will present several applications of this technology, including human depression detection, support for dementia patients with incontinence, and learning the relationship between stress and epilepsy seizures. I will then present results on some of our recent research work regarding the underlying technology to achieve these applications, including: robust activity detection, semantic anomaly detection, sleep monitoring, and privacy. Open research questions will be mentioned throughout the talk.
