Call For Papers
International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI-11)
'Shaping the Next Decade'
November 16-18, 2011 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands, www.ami-11.org
Ambient Intelligence (AmI) represents a vision of the future in which products and services will be responsive to the user context, offering a rich variety of applications in the professional and consumer domains. AmI combines concepts of ubiquitous technology, intelligent systems and advanced user interface design putting the humans in the centre of technological developments.
Starting as the European Symposium on Ambient Intelligence in 2003 the event has grown to an annual international conference that brings together researchers and serves as a forum to discuss the latest trends and solutions.
Following the publication of early scenarios on Ambient Intelligence in 2001 by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, the theme of AmI-11 will focus on the “The Road Ahead, Shaping the Next 10 Years”
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original, unpublished work in all areas related to AmI. The contributions can be research papers, landscape sessions, late-breaking result posters, demonstrations and workshops, describing significant advances in AmI on the following themes:
-Multimodal / Tangible Interaction / Natural User Interfaces
-Smart Spaces / Social Intelligence / Context Awareness
-Embedded User Interfaces
-Prototyping / Tools
-Design Methods / Evaluation
-Smart Input / Display / Vision
-Security / Privacy / Trust
-Knowledge Systems / Computational Intelligence / Pattern Detection
-Autonomic Systems / Agents
-Ambient Assisted Living
Contributions are welcomed for the following conference tracks:
– FULL PAPERS (10 pages): Original, high quality research contributions advancing the state of the art in AmI. Work reflecting various interdisciplinary aspects of AmI research with clear results.
– LANDSCAPES (5 pages): These provide a forum for presenting ongoing work and new initiatives and activities, overviews of significant projects, testbeds, organizations and laboratories in the field of AmI.
– WORKSHOPS: An opportunity to meet in the context of the conference and to discuss emerging and future areas in a field of interest. Organized as full day workshops (6 hours per day) and half-day workshops (3 hours per day):
*Aesthetic Intelligence: Designing Smart and Beautiful Architectural Spaces
*Human-Centered Design of Smart/Ambient Environments and Services: Models and Tools for Tasks Migratability
*Interactive Human Behavior Analysis in Open or Public Spaces

*Empowering and integrating senior citizens with virtual coaching
*Integration of AMI and AAL platforms in the Future Internet (FI) Platform initiative
*2nd Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding: Inducing Behavioral Change
*Privacy, Trust and Interaction in the Internet of Things
– LATE BREAKING PAPERS (5 pages): Results based on scientific evidence toward novel and valuable contributions in the field of AmI. Work of high
potential and well positioned in the state of the art.
– DEMOS & POSTERS : Ongoing work with a high potential to attract interest and to create discussions with other conference participants. Submissions
include a 4-page extended abstract laying out research approach, contributions and results.
