ISAmI 2011 :: CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

2nd International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence - Software and Applications
6th-8th April, 2011 :: Salamanca, Spain
http://isami.usal.es

---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -
Submission deadline: 15th November, 2010 
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a recent paradigm emerging from 
Artificial Intelligence (AI), where computers are used as proactive 
tools assisting people with their day-to-day activities, making everyone’s 
life more comfortable.

Another main concern of AmI originates from the human computer interaction 
domain and focuses on offering ways to interact with systems in a more 
natural way by means user friendly interfaces. This field is evolving quickly 
as can be witnessed by the emerging natural language and gesture based types 
of interaction. 

The inclusion of computational power and communication technologies in everyday 
objects is growing and their embedding into our environments should be as 
invisible as possible. In order for AmI to be successful, human interaction 
with computing power and embedded systems in the surroundings should be 
smooth and happen without people actually noticing it. The only awareness 
people should have arises from AmI: more safety, comfort and wellbeing, 
emerging in a natural and inherent way.

ISAmI is the International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence, aiming 
to bring together researchers from various disciplines that 
constitute the scientific field of Ambient Intelligence to present 
and discuss the latest results, new ideas, projects and lessons learned.

Brand new ideas will be greatly appreciated as well as relevant 
revisions and actualizations of previously presented work, project 
summaries and PhD thesis.

ISAmI 2011 will be held at the University of Salamanca, Spain. 
This symposium will be organized by the Biomedicine, Intelligent System 
and Educational Technology Research Group (http://bisite.usal.es/) of 
the University of Salamanca.

CONTRIBUTIONS 
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

As in the previous edition, the goals of ISAmI are: 

• to create the appropriate conditions for researchers to disseminate their research work; 
• to strengthen the relationships among the AmI research groups;
• to facilitate the contact between new researchers and consolidated groups; 
• to help the diffusion of new developments to the community. 

In order to fulfill these objectives, submissions of substantial, original and previously 
unpublished work are invited in all areas of Ambient Intelligence. The papers can be presented 
from a formal, methodological, technical or applied point of view focus, namely, in AmI Software 
and Applications.  

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 
- Applications  
- Ambient Assisted Living
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Artificial Intelligence for AmI
- Distributed Computing 
- Domotics (Home Automation)
- Pervasive Computing
- Context Aware Computing
- Agent & Multiagent Systems for AmI
- Mobile Computing 
- Robotics
- Computational Creativity 
- Sentient Computing 
- e-Health
- Context Modelling
- e Learning
- Memory Assistant

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

We are looking forward to receiving contributions from anyone interested 
in participating and presenting their work at this symposium. 
We are accepting two types of submissions:

1. Regular Paper. It must consist of original, relevant and previously 
unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the 
conference. It may be accepted as a Long paper, a Short paper or a Poster.

2. Doctoral Paper. PhD students are invited to present the topic and 
progress of their research in order to obtain feedback from a panel of 
experts.

Papers should be written in English, with a maximum of 8 (eight) pages.
