          Call for Contributions for the Special Session

        "Ambient Intelligence for Smart Home Environments"
                           as part of the
  2nd International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE'06)
                  5.-6. July 2006, Athens, Greece

                     Special Session Organizer:
         Dr. Dr. Norbert Streitz, Fraunhofer IPSI, Germany

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) reflects an emerging and popular field of
research and development that is oriented towards the goal of "intelligent"
or "smart" environments that react in an attentive, adaptive, and active
(sometimes even proactive) way to the presence and activities of humans and
objects in order to provide intelligent/smart services to the inhabitants
of these environments. The goal requires sensing capabilities, processing
power, computing intelligence, and actuating capabilities distributed in
the surrounding environment. While there will be quite a lot of technology
involved, the goal is to hide it from the users by having the computer
"disappear" in the users' perception and providing them with new forms of
interactions that are rather implicit and not in the way one operates
his/her programmes on a personal computer.

In this specific session, we will focus on AmI applications for the Home
Environment where individuals or groups of people such as families and 
interact and will be supported by intelligent user services. The 
can address issues of home care and safety, home information and 
and the situation of several distributed homes that extend home environment
to remote sites.

Papers may discuss theories, applications, evaluations, limitations,
general tools and techniques.
