Context-aware systems have the potential to revolutionise the way humans interact with information technology. 

The First Workshop on Human Factors and Activity Recognition in Healthcare, Wellness and Assisted Living (Recognise2Interact) aims to enable researchers and practitioners from both Activity Recognition and Human Computer Interaction to interact and bridge the gap between these two fields.
