The workshop aims to collect contributions from experts (scholars, researchers, Ph.D. students as well as practitioners) in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and other crossing disciplines involved in the development of innovative and effective research and technologies for personalized assistance of frail people. The workshop will pursue a multi-disciplinary approach by collecting knowledge and experiences from heterogeneous disciplines and also experiences from stakeholders to show how efforts from technological and non-technological actors would add value to the promotion of innovative assistive systems. It would represent a place to share opinions, explore innovative ideas, and provide suggestions on current research.
