EvAAL, a project embedded into the AALOA association, was led by the Institute of Information and Technologies (ISTI) of CNR (Pisa, IT) and was mostly financed by the universAAL FP7 project.

During the competitions, data were collected in realistic environments, the living labs: the data sets, which are publicly available, can be used by researcher communities as an aid for the simulation and test of their solutions.

This year, the competition was composed of two tracks, a demo, and a final
