CuPiD Appearing at Pervasive Conferences

Delegates from ETH Zürich and TASMC have been busy attending two Pervasive conferences representing the CuPiD project.

Sinziana Mazilu from ETH Zürich gave a presentation on “Online Detection of Freezing of Gait with Smartphones and Machine Learning Techniques”, at Pervasive Health 2012, the 6th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare.

Pervasive Health provided an international forum with specific focus on technologies and human factors related to the use of ubiquitous computing in healthcare and wellbeing. The conference featured research talks, workshops, demonstrations and doctorate colloquia.

Pervasive Health was the 6th conference in the series, and for the first time was held outside of Europe. The conference took place in San Diego, United States in May.

Zack Zhu, Sinziana Mazilu, Michael Hardegger, Meir Plotnik, Jeff M. Hausdorff, Daniel Roggen, Gerhard Tröster attended Pervasive 2012 in Newcastle, UK.  Pervasive 2012 was the 10th International Conference on Pervasive Computing, and was held at Newcastle University in the UK in June 2012.

This annual conference provided a forum for researchers to present their latest results in all areas related to the architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of pervasive computing.

Pervasive 2012 included a highly selective program for technical papers, accompanied by late-breaking result posters, videos, demonstrations, workshops, a doctoral colloquium and other events.

ETH Zürich and TASMC were representing CuPiD and were demonstrating “Real-Time Detection of Freezing of Gait for Parkinson's disease Patients via Smartphone”.
