AITAmI 2012 : 7th Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Ambient Intelligence
Call For Papers
Focus of 2012 edition: Context and Situation Understanding
Imagine a future where human environments respond to human preferences and needs. In this world, devices equipped with simple intelligence and the abilities to sense, communicate, and act will be unremarkable features of our world. We will expect the car to warn us of hazards, track our location and provide timely route advice. We will speak to simple machines and hold conversations with more complex systems, such as intelligent homes that will help us monitor conditions, track routine tasks, and program the behaviour of the heater, lights, garden watering and the entertainment centre. Analogous systems at work will make simple decisions in our stead ranging from scheduling meetings to negotiating for common services over the web. Such systems will also acquire, and adapt to our preferences over time. In sum, we will come to view simple software intelligence as an ambient feature of our environment.
This workshop will provide the opportunity to understand latest developments and take action to shape the future of the area by gathering researchers in a variety of AI subfields together with representatives of commercial interests to explore the technology and applications for ambient intelligence.
The 7th edition of AITAmI will focus on the understanding of Context and Situations as key concepts which support accurate diagnosis and reasoning for the decision making processes that sustain Ambient Intelligence applications.
* context awareness
* activity recognition
* individual/group emotional status
* individual/group preferences
* mediating conflicting interests
* non invasive sensing and interaction
* cognitive modelling of users
* modelling complex environments (smart homes, smart cars, hospitals, museums, transportation, classrooms, open spaces, etc.)
* intelligent interactive systems
* multi-modal interfaces (voice, image and video, bio-signals, handwriting, etc.)
as well as...
* agent-based approaches to AmI
* applications (health, industry, teaching, supporting group collaboration, etc.)
* responsive/active architecture
* innovative applications of AI to Ambient Intelligence
* traditional relevant areas of AI (KR, reasoning about actions, spatio-temporal reasoning, CBR, planning, uncertainty, learning, belief revision, vision, decision-making, etc.)
Authors wishing to participate as speakers in this event should:
* Submit papers of no more than 12 pages formatted according to the IOS Press style: http://www.iospress.nl/authco/instruction_crc.html
* Online submission system for this event: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/AITAMI2012/
For any question, please contact A. Aztiria (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All papers accepted will be published in the proceedings of the event which will be a volume in the Book Series on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments: http://www.iospress.nl/bookserie/ambient-intelligence-and-smart-environments/
This series is now indexed by Scopus, DBLP and ACM Digital Library.
The workshop is open to all members of the IE community. If restrictions in the number of participants apply due to room size preference will be given to participants who have an accepted paper and the rest of the participants will be selected according to background and order of registration.
