- Acceptance Notification: May 15, 2011
- Camera-Ready Submission: June 15, 2011

The International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2011) is a leading international conference which provides an international forum for researchers, developers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to address research challenges and to present and discuss research ideas, developments and experiences related to the ambient systems infrastructure, models, and technologies.

The general aim of ambient systems is to provide an environment wherein computing devices exist anywhere and everywhere. In such systems mobile and embedded computing devices form ad hoc collaboration using different communication networks (e.g., wireless networks, RFID, etc) in order to share and exchange information and provide services. Ambient systems pose new research challenges due to the open and unreliable nature of the environment and the complexity and heterogeneity of the computing devices and the underlying communication networks. These characteristics challenge traditional techniques and demand new ways of approaching the problems related to the ambient systems.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers to the following research tracks. Details on topics of each track are available at the conference website.

- Autonomic Networks and Communications
- Systems Software Engineering
- Systems Security and Privacy
- Distributed Artificial Intelligence
- Emerging Networking, Tracking and Sensing
- Multimodal Interfaces
- Service Oriented Computing for Systems & Applications
- Smart Environments and Applications
- Social Networks
- General track: Distributed systems, networks and applications



Papers accepted for the conference will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series (on-line and CD). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus ( and Engineering Village (Ei) ( This includes EI Compendex ( The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. Selected papers will be invited for publication, in the special issues of:

(1) Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing, by Springer

(2) Social Network Analysis and Mining Journal, by Springer
(3) Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, by Springer



Submitted technical papers must be no longer than 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers including all figures and references, and must be formatted according to Elsevier guidelines (
