One of the more important applications of spoken dialog systems (SDS) is the development of personal assistants for elderly. The proposed challenge is to provide personalized advice guidance through a spoken dialogue system to improve the quality of life and independency living status of the people as the age. To this end SDS has to deal not only with user goals but also implement health goals through negotiation strategies to convince the user to develop healthy habits. Such SDS has also include perceived user affective status to support the dialog manager decisions. Important related topics are, but not limited to:

• affective computing in SDS

• user centered design

• policies dealing with shared user-task goals

• management strategies to keep the user engagement

• personalization and adaptation

• ontologies and knowledge representation

• privacy preserved SDS

• simulated dialog manager

• applications to assist the elderly
