EUSPAI 2015 : 2nd workshop on End-user Service Provision for Ambient Intelligence
Call For Papers
Please consider to submit a paper to the 2nd workshop on End-user Service Provision for Ambient Intelligence (EUSPAI). This workshop is organized as part of the UCAmI/IWAAL/AmIHEALTH 2015 (December 1-4, 2015) and will be held in Puerto Varas, Chile.
Workshop Goals: Ambient Intelligence is applied to many scenarios, ranging from smart cities to emergency situations, including health care, social learning, etc. In these scenarios users consume AmI services with context awareness features, enabling interaction with sensors and embedded systems, context recognition, and communications.
Research in services for AmI over the past 15 years has focused on the need of multimodal interfaces and natural interaction mechanisms with the ambient environment, related to the field of human-computer interactions. Recently, the evolution of the society reflects more participative users, which not only share contents but also the logic to access, process and represent this content, in the form of applications and services.
These users, often called Prosumers or End-user programmers have technical difficulties to create and share useful services that take advantage of the capabilities of ambient environments. Some of these challenges are the selection of the most appropriate creation strategy, the adaptation of services to changes in the environment or dealing with the heterogeneity of sensors and actuators.
After the great success of this workshop in UCAmI-2014, this second edition of EUSPAI seeks scientific works that contribute to enable the end-user service provision in this kind of environments, facilitating their development, interaction, composition, identification, monitoring, communication with sensors and actuators, etc. EUSPAI-2015 is aiming at delivering a forum for in-depth scientific discussions, leading to significant contributions.

We invite researchers to submit high quality contributions describing significant, original and unpublished results in the following categories:
Long papers: Intended to allow presentation of academic research results of high quality. Submissions must contain an original contribution and may not have already been published in another forum, nor be subject to review for other conferences or publications. Contributions should include unpublished results of research, case studies or experiences that provide new evidence about the research or application regarding to the main topics. Articles accepted in this category will be published in the proceedings of the event. Long papers must not exceed 12 pages (including figures and appendices).
Short papers:Intended to allow presentation of ongoing studies with partial (however, significant) results. Submissions must contain an original contribution and may not have already been published in another forum, nor be subject to review for other conferences or publications. Articles accepted in this category will be published in the proceedings of the event. Short papers must not exceed 6 pages (including figures and appendices).
All papers should be written in English.
All submissions should be made by EasyChair platform and must follow the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) Formatting Guidelines.
You can submit your paper through the following:
At least one of the authors of an accepted paper has to be registered and attend the workshop for presentation of the work such that the paper can be published in the LNCS proceedings of IWAAL.
The accepted papers will be included in a Post-Proceedings, which will be published by Springer. Therefore, the papers must adhere to such a format: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0
Selected papers will be invited to participate in an Issue of Revista Facultad de Ingeniería, ISSN 0120-6230 (JCR 2013 IF= 0.07).
