Call For Papers

Smart Homes Infrastructures and Interactions


June 30th, 2009

University of Groningen, The Netherlands

Embedded systems are specialized computers used in larger systems or machines to control equipments such as automobiles, home appliances, communication, control and office machines. Such pervasivity is particularly evident in immersive realities, i.e., scenarios in which invisible embedded systems need to continuously interact with human users, in order to provide continuous sensed information and to react to service requests from the users themselves. The Smart Homes Infrastructures and Interactions workshop will attract papers that investigate any of the following topics:


•middleware platforms for smart homes

•service based home infrastructures

•smart embedded services

•self-configuring home solutions

•home mediated collaboration


•assistive living

•support to patient-caregiver interaction

•immersive and person centric environments

•human interaction with smart homes

•brain computer interfaces for home interaction

•acceptability studies


Important dates

Paper submission February 20th, 2009

Paper notification March 13th, 2009

Final camera ready due April 10th, 2009


Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere, and with references to related work. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop. Papers up to six pages (including figures, tables and references) can be submitted. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single-spaced, two columns, 10 pt font. Papers should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words and no more than eight keywords. Please submit papers, in PDF or PS format, to either of the local chairs (mail). All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by a minimum of three program committee members. The accepted papers and the summary report produced by each group will be published in the conference proceedings (to be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press). If you have further questions or remarks, please do not hesitate to contact the workshop organizers.
