- MOTIVATION
-------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Intelligent Environments (IE) is rising as one of the technical fields with the
highest potential to make an impact in daily human life during the near future.
Developments in this area are achieved by a complex juxtaposition of complex
technical fields. Software is related to the architecture of a building,
sensors, a network for data transportation, and different levels of users. Many
of these elements are error prone, software is notoriously difficult and even
companies like NASA, Microsoft, Intel, BMW which can afford powerful teams of
experienced development teams have paid with lives, economic losses and
reputation missing to detect software bugs within their products. Sensors are
often unreliable, networks are sometimes unstable and users can put systems to
the test in circumstances that were not initially foreseen. Developing these
type of systems is therefore complex and given that some applications will be
given the tremendous responsibility to take care of humans. Think for example on
how much interest there is on the development of systems to support independent
living. These systems are intended to give peace of mind to elderly people and
their relatives trusting that the system will be able to do many things for them
including safety related issues like detecting whether the occupant of the house
has fallen or is unwell in some way. Other examples are unmanned cars and other
autonomous systems which are supposed to perform tasks for us which can have
disastrous consequences should something go wrong.

Our community should develop appropriate standards and specific methodologies
to ensure we do our outmost to deliver safe systems given the current state of
the art. Given the specific blend of components in our area of development
we cannot just transfer developments in other areas (although of course they
should be taken into account to inform the process). This event will aim to
bring together developers and researchers to focus on all aspects of the
development process that can contribute to make Intelligent Environment systems
safer and to provide methodologies that can increase the confidence in these
developments.

- TOPICS
-------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Areas of Interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Testing
- Validation
- Verification of correctness
- Tools for simulation
- Elicitation of user requirements
- Human-centred design

- WORKSHOP FORMAT
-------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
All submissions must adhere to the same format than the main event (ISAmI'11)
this workshop is co-located with. Submissions have to be submitted through
the EasyChair conference system. See more details on this from the web page
of the workshop. All articles selected for publication will be reviewed by
at least two reviewers with expertise in the area.

Submissions must be made via the Conference Review System:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=worie11

The core of the event will be the presentation of recent advances in research
and applications followed by a debate aiming to encourage a critical reflection
on the subject. Presentations can also contain demos about tools and applications.

After the presentations of the selected papers a panel will focus on critical
issues that should be addressed at both academic and professional level. The
results of this panel can be used then by different groups to elaborate a
summary document on achievements and prospective issues to be considered by the
research community. Interaction will be encouraged throughout the event.

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.
