In general, an Intelligent Environment binds a highly distributed and changing
collection of heterogeneous networked resources, both physical and virtual. The
idiosyncrasy of these scenarios imposes several issues that must be solved
before providing any kind of intelligence. These issues include searching and
locating resources, managing context and data (gathering, sharing,
communicating, storing and reasoning), ad-hoc composing of resources, debugging
facilities and integrating legacy and third-party systems. Additionally,
traditional software engineering requirements such as maintainability,
incremental deployment and evolution, fault-tolerance and recovery or
portability require particular considerations. Thus, programming these spaces
becomes an extremely challenging task, especially if the previous issues have to
be solved from scratch. Consequently, in the last decades many efforts have
been addressed the design and implementation of software architectures
to mitigate the complexity of programming these environments.

SAIE workshop aims to gather leading researchers and practitioners focused on
the development of software architectures for intelligent environments. It
arises from the necessity of summarizing the experience gained in the last
decades, identifying the best approaches and defining open issues. From all the
wide range of possible issues, each edition of SAIE will be focused on one
particular cutting-edge topic.

The current edition of SAIE targets the challenge of evaluating software
architectures for Intelligent Environments. In the context of this workshop,
evaluation includes both verification processes, and performance measurements.
This topic has achieved significant advances in other research areas (e.g.
natural language, signal processing, recommendation systems or machine
learning). In these areas, new systems and algorithms can be assessed and
compared through benchmarks, metrics, public test cases, or even annual
contests. Likewise, evaluation on software architectures for intelligent
environments should foster analogous approaches. Nevertheless, due to the
complexity of the inhabited scenarios, sometimes intelligent environments are
difficult to evaluate, thus experience reports from a sufficient number of
large-scale or singular but challenging environments are often considered
adequate evaluation methods. In this sense, the report of real experience and
test bed intelligent environment can also serve as an interesting contribution
of evaluation. In summary, the main goal of this workshop is to analyze and
propose evaluation frameworks for intelligent environments. Nevertheless, the
current edition is also welcomes other aspects related to the field of software
architecture for intelligent environments.

We are willing to accept papers regarding (but not limited to):

* Specific Benchmarks and test cases
* Experimental design
* Performance measurement
* Quality of Service Metrics
* Requirements assessment
* Maintenance, extensibility and economic aspects
* Test bed and evaluation scenarios
* Specific lessons and case studies

Papers should be submitted to the CMT online paper management system:

The workshop is targeted at all people working towards or interested in
state-of-the art in intelligent environments, with special motivation in
evaluation methods. It strives to attract researchers and practitioners from
both academia and industry.

All manuscripts should be submitted and formatted according to the guidelines of
IOS Press style.

Authors are invited to submit 6-8 pages position papers describing their
proposal, experience or ongoing research in the area. All articles selected for
publication will be blind reviewed by at least two reviewers with expertise in
the area. Thus, the anonymous submission of the initial paper is required for
the reviewing process. Reviewers will provide feedback to both authors and
workshop organizers.

All papers accepted will be published by IOS Press.
