ISAmI 2011 : International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence
Conference Series : International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence
Call For Papers
Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a recent paradigm emerging from Artificial Intelligence (AI), where computers are used as proactive tools assisting people with their day-to-day activities, making everyone’s life more comfortable. Another main concern of AmI originates from the human computer interaction domain and focuses on offering ways to interact with systems in a more natural way by means user friendly interfaces. This field is evolving quickly as can be witnessed by the emerging natural language and gesture based types of interaction. The inclusion of computational power and communication technologies in everyday objects is growing and their embedding into our environments should be as invisible as possible. In order for AmI to be successful, human interaction with computing power and embedded systems in the surroundings should be smooth and happen without people actually noticing it. The only awareness people should have arises from AmI: more safety, comfort and wellbeing, emerging in a natural and inherent way. ISAmI is the International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence, aiming to bring together researchers from various disciplines that constitute the scientific field of Ambient Intelligence to present and discuss the latest results, new ideas, projects and lessons learned. Brand new ideas will be greatly appreciated as well as relevant revisions and actualizations of previously presented work, project summaries and PhD thesis. ISAmI 2011 will be held at the University of Salamanca, Spain. This symposium will be organized by the Biomedicine, Intelligent System and Educational Technology Research Group (http://bisite.usal.es/) of the University of Salamanca. ISAmI 2011 is sponsored by the IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society Spain Section Chapter and the IEEE Spain Section (Technical Co-Sponsor).
TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS
We are looking forward to receiving contributions from anyone interested in participating and presenting their work at this symposium. We are accepting two types of submissions:
1.Regular Paper. It must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference. It may be accepted as a Long paper, a Short paper or a Poster.
2.Doctoral Paper. PhD students are invited to present the topic and progress of their research in order to obtain feedback from a panel of experts.
Papers should be written in English, with a maximum of 8 (eight) pages.
Papers must be prepared according to Springer’s templates (MS Word or LaTeX format) for the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing volume series (http://www.springer.com/series/4240).
All accepted papers will be published in a special volume of Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing (Springer), indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP and Springerlink, among others.
At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag.
A Thematic Issue in the Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments (IOS Press) will be edited.
