Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments

Special Issue - Computer Vision for Ambient Intelligence

LAST REMINDER (Apologies for cross-posting)


The vision of ambient intelligence revolves around understanding human 
behavior in its many social settings, and to provide humans with 
socially aware cognitive systems, enabling a shift from usability to 
sociability, or to ambient culture. We envision seamlessly integrated 
plug and play devices that can be used to endow a given environment with 
an awareness of the physical, functional, temporal and social 
organization of its internal domestic dynamics, as well as the 
personalities and social relationships of its inhabitants, providing a 
vast array of new services for ordinary people.

While many novel sensory modalities are offering the designers of 
ambient intelligence applications new possibilities of realizing these 
goals, computer vision remains the most important modality in providing 
rich information in an unobtrusive manner. We solicit contributions to a 
thematic issue of the Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart 
Environments on "Computer Vision for Ambient Intelligence". The aim of 
this issue is to introduce novel computer vision approaches to the 
challenges of understanding human behavior in ambient environments. 
Provided that application area is compatible with the aims of the 
journal and the thematic issue, the topics include (but are not 
restricted to):

-Scene and event modeling, representation, and reconstruction
-Human activity analysis
-Social signal processing
-Facial expression and gesture recognition
-Face and body tracking
-Distributed video surveillance
-Behavioral biometrics
-New feature selection and extraction methods
-Vision for multimodal fusion
-Mathematical description and integration of contextual information
-Spatio-temporal dynamics of actions
-Recognition of signs and emblematic gestures
-Visual action grammars
-Benchmarking studies on novel databases
-Vision for applications of elderly care, smart cars, and smart buildings

Submissions must represent original material. Papers are accepted for 
review with the understanding that the same work has been neither 
submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference. All 
manuscripts will undergo a rigorous review process by at least three 
experts. Submission of comprehensive survey papers is encouraged. These 
should have added value for the field, and introduce new perspectives, 
taxonomies, etc., or critically discuss existing work to provide a 
broader vision.
