CALL FOR PAPERS [apologies for cross-posting]

Part of the International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI-11)


International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI-11)
November 16-18, 2011 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands,

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) represents the vision of the future in which
ambient technology is used to support assisted living. AAL can be used to
support individuals at home and in a mobile setting, by providing for
example self-management, safety and security, and home automation
services. At the same time, AAL can be used to maintain and extend social
communities by enabling communication, creating awareness and providing
persuasive mechanisms.

The half-day special session provides a forum for researchers, designers
and engineers from both industry and academia to exchange ideas on AAL.
The session is a special parallel track of the main conference at AmI-11
(, which will be held on November 16-18, 2011 in Amsterdam,
