Atelier of Smart Garments and Accessories for Healthy Lifestyles
Held in conjunction with the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing [UbiComp 2015] and the International Symposium on Wearable Computers [ISWC 2015].
"ASGA4Health" Workshop Aim
The 3rd edition of the “Atelier of Smart Garments and Accessories” workshop series is dedicated to the application of wearables to foster healthy lifestyles. Wearable technology is paving the way for the future ultimate achievement of the quantified self: allowing users to have a thorough knowledge and monitoring of their own body and behaviour. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from the academia and the industry in order to establish a multidisciplinary community interested in sharing knowledge and ideas for the design of new services and wearable devices that can help users to change their behaviours and adopt the desired healthy lifestyle to improve their own physical and mental wellbeing.
ASGA4Health will be held on 8th September 2015 in Osaka (Japan).
This workshop is supported by the European Commission in the frame of the PEGASO project through the grant 610727 issued in the FP7 Programme
PEGASO aims at developing a multi-dimensional and cross-disciplinary ICT system that includes wearable devices and game mechanics to influence behaviours in order to fight and prevent overweight and obesity in the younger population by encouraging them to become co-producers of their wellness and take an active role in improving it.
