The ViBRANT workshop brings together researchers from diverse scientific backgrounds to advance video-based Assistive and Active Living (AAL) technology, with a focus on real-world applications in care settings. It promotes the significance of integrating technological advancements with user studies, legal considerations, and the needs of the healthcare sector. The workshop welcomes participation from academia, medical professionals, care providers, and industry partners interested in AAL. Its primary objective is to foster an interdisciplinary research community that explores the latest advancements in video-based AAL, including practical applications and methodologies for evaluating potential benefits and risks in healthcare and care environments.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Video-Based Technology for Health Monitoring
  • Fair and Privacy-Aware Systems
  • Integration of Engineering Issues in the Design Process of Video-Based AAL
  • Legal Requirements and Privacy Issues for Data Collection and Processing in Care
  • User Acceptance Criteria for Video-Based AAL
  • GDPR Requirements for Video-Based AALSolutions
  • Best Practices of Interdisciplinary Collaborations between Legal, Technical, Social, and Health Sciences
