Call For Papers

The rapid growth in hardware miniaturization has enabled the current vision for an alternative computing trend whose main aim is the creation of digital environments populated by interacting electronic devices to form a fine-grained distributed network: Ubiquitous Computing. Built on the ubiquitous computing idea, the Ambient Intelligence paradigm is a candidate to become the next wave of computing. Indeed, this novel computing approach is aimed to extend the ubiquitous vision by incorporating intrinsic intelligence in pervasive systems. This idea enables the study, design and development of embodiments for smart environments that not only react to human events through sensing, interpretation and service provision, but also learn and adapt their operation and services to the users over time. These embodiments employ contextual information when available, and offer unobtrusive and intuitive interfaces to their users.

The aim of this special session is to encompass valuable research in integration of Computational Intelligence and Ambient Intelligence. This special session is aimed at sharing the latest progress, current challenges and potential applications of fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation and neural and learning systems in the scenario of ubiquitous and pervasive computing environment.
