Call For Papers

Description
A wide-range of application domains within the fields of ambient intelligence and ubiquitous computing environments require the ability to represent and reason about dynamic spatial phenomena. Real world ambient intelligence systems that monitor and interact with an environment populated by humans and other artefacts require a formal means for representing and reasoning with spatio-temporal, event and action based phenomena that are grounded to real aspects of the environment being modelled. A fundamental requirement within such application domains is the representation of dynamic knowledge pertaining to the spatial aspects of the environment within which an agent, system or robot is functional. At a very basic level, this translates to the need to explicitly represent and reason about dynamic spatial configurations or scenes and desirably, integrated reasoning about space, actions and change. With these modelling primitives, primarily the ability to perform predictive and explanatory analyzes on the basis of available sensory data is crucial toward serving a useful intelligent function within such environments.

Qualitative conceptualizations of space and tools/techniques for efficiently reasoning with them being well-established, there is now a clear felt need within the community to utilise the tools and formalisms that have been constructed in the recent years in novel application scenarios. The emerging fields of ambient intelligence and ubiquitous computing will benefit immensely from the vast body of representation and reasoning tools that have been developed in Artificial Intelligence in general, and the sub-field of Spatial and Temporal Reasoning in specific. There have already been proposals to explicitly utilise qualitative spatial calculi pertaining to different spatial domains for modelling the spatial aspect of an ambient environment (e.g., smart homes and offices) and also to utilize a formal basis for representing and reasoning about space, change and occurrences within such environments.
