The conference is part of the Healthy Lifestyle Solutions research program, in which academic researchers work together with their partners in industry to investigate and develop new scientifically grounded and ethically appropriate possibilities for using e-coaching to improve wellbeing by helping individuals change their health behaviors.
The HLS conference is concerned with (the combination of human and) automatic coaching to support people in adopting a healthier lifestyle, involving their physical activity, sleep and eating behavior and stress level.
We intend to focus on e-coaching elements that are common for these application areas, including the use of sensors and software methodology, ethical and societal aspects, and ways to persuade people to comply.
Sessions will likely address principles of behavioral modification, monitoring technologies, design of expert systems, ethics of persuasion, etc., with applications to domains such as weight control, sleep deprivation, and exercise. For more information, see the Call for Papers.
