AmI environments are integrated by several autonomous computational devices of modern life ranging from consumer electronics to mobile phones. Ideally, people in an AmI environment will not notice these devices, but they will benefit from the services they provide them. Such devices are aware of the people present in those environments by reacting to their gestures, actions and context. Recently the interest in Ambient Intelligence Environments has grown considerably due to new challenges posed by society, demanding highly innovative services such as vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), e-Health, Internet of Things and Home Automation among others.
The main focus of this edition of the UCAmI Conference will be "Ubiquitous Computing & Ambient Intelligence: Context-Awareness and Context-Driven Interaction". Meanwhile, the edition of the IWAAL Conference will be focused on "Ambient Assisted Living and Active Aging".
