The symposium will be chaired by Prof Philippe Robert and will take place on Monday, July 20, 2015: 08:00 AM - 09:30 AM under the 'Dementia Care Research and Practice Track' in Washington D.C..
Focused sessions on Alzheimer’s and dementia attract 5,000 attendees from over 70 countries for discussion and networking during this conference. More than 90 sessions and 475 presentations are expected that focus on basic science, dementia care research and practice, imaging, technology and more.
The second, on "Validation of an Automatic Video Monitoring System for the Detection of Instrumental Activities of Daily Living in Dementia Patients" authored by König A, Crispim Junior CF, Derreumaux A, Bensadoun G, Petit PD, Bremond F, David R, Verhey F, Aalten P, Robert P. has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease (Impact Factor 2014: 3.612).

DEMLAB - Dem@Care Lab Ontology for Dementia Assessment
The Dem@Care Lab Ontology for Dementia Assessement has been integrated in the Linked Open Vocabularies (LOV) dataset, enabling its sharing and reuse by other datasets in the Linked Data Cloud (a human-readable description of the vocabulary is available here). The ontology has been developed in the framework of the Dem@Care project for representing the experimentation protocol towards diagnostic support and assessment of Dementia in a controlled environment. The aim of the protocol is to provide a brief overview of their health status of the participants during consultation (cognition, behaviours and function), and to correlate the system (sensor) data with the data collected using typical dementia care assessment tools.
Ontology-based Activity Recognition Ontology, Datasets and Algorithms
The ontology, a sample dataset and the methods for the ontology-based activity recognition component, as employed in DemaWare2, are provided here, for free usage. Interested parties can use the data for benchmarking, reproducing or results or extending the ontology to build their own solutions. In detail we provide:
- The Ontology with context-description models
- A Sample Dataset of observations for activity recognition
- An implementation of semantic fusion for activity recognition
Seminar talk on “Wearable activity/context sensing: sensors, opportunism, and scale”, by Prof. D. Roggen
In AAIC 2014®, thousands of researchers from more than 60 countries will gather to reveal the latest study results, theories and discoveries bringing the world closer to breakthroughs in dementia science.
2014 eHealth Forum is organised by the Greek Presidency in cooperation with the European Commission, the eHealth Forum 2014 brings together a High-Level eHealth Experts’ Conference on European Priorities, the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP AHA). The event will provide a unique forum for the exchange of experience, good practices innovation and mutual support.
