Sincere apologies if you receive this call for workshops multiple times.

                European Conference on Ambient Intelligence

                  November 7-10, 2007, Darmstadt, Germany


Deadline for Workshop Proposals: May 10, 2007


Ambient Intelligence represents a vision of the future where we shall be surrounded by electronic environments, sensitive and responsive to people.
Ambient Intelligence technologies are expected to combine concepts of ubiquitous computing and intelligent systems putting humans in the centre of technological developments.

The conference aims to bring together top researchers both from academia and industry within the various disciplines that constitute the field of Ambient Intelligence to stimulate research and create links between industry and academia allowing the exploration of new frontiers in the area of Ambient Intelligence.

AmI-07 is the second joint conference that brings together two series of events. The first series of events is the Conference on Smart Objects (sOc) and has been organized by France Telecom and by the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) both in Grenoble, France in 2001 and 2003. The second series of events is the European Symposium on Ambient Intelligence (EUSAI) and has been organized by Philips and University of Eindhoven both in Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 the first joined conference of sOc and EUSAI was organized in Grenoble, France under the name sOc-EUSAI'05. Now in 2007 we are expanding the scope of the series by including three different types of contributions: 
- research contributions, case studies and lessons learned contributions and
- industry and socio-economic contributions.

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Objects, devices and environments that embody Ambient Intelligence
- Context awareness, sensing and inference for Ambient Intelligence
- Natural and multimodal interaction styles and user interfaces for
   ambient computing
- Ergonomics, interaction design and product prototyping for
   Ambient Intelligence
- Distributed software, systems, middleware and frameworks for
   Ambient Intelligence
- Analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of ambient computing
   systems and environments
- Security, privacy and trust in Ambient Intelligence
- Communication systems and infrastructure for Ambient Intelligence
- Applications and experience with deployed systems

AmI'07 workshops should fit into one of the following
1. EU PROJECT WORKSHOPS intended for internal, restricted, or
   public exchange of research progress or proposals related to
   projects funded by the European Commission - typically, in the
   context of FP6 or FP7
2. FOCUSSED SCIENTIFIC WORKSHOPS emphasizing a relatively narrow
   topic related to the AmI'07 overall theme. The topic should be
   interesting and concise such as to attract a group of like-minded
3. EARLY-WORK SCIENTIFIC WORSHOPS soliciting well defended research
   project proposals, work-in-progress reports, and similar
   early papers of sufficient quality.

Workshop Format
Workshops can be restricted to participation upon invitation only or they can be kept open. In any case, advance registration will be required in order to plan ahead for the required facilities.
Half-day and full-day workshops can be accomodated, to be held at November 10. In the event that workshops shall be extended to Sunday,

Proposals for Scientific Workshops (scope 2+3 above) must include the following information:
1) Content of the Workshop
    a) Title
    b) Tentative Text (Body) of the Call for Papers
    c) Abstract describing - as far as not yet covered in 1b) - the
       Rationale, tentative review/selection procedure and timeline,
       publication plans, expected number of participants, and further
       information considered relevant
    b) and c) together should comprise about 250-500 words
2) For each of the (one through five) proposers:
    a) Name, Affiliation
    b) Short Bio, including a description of the expertise in the topic(s)
       of the workshop (around 150-250 words)
3) Tentative Program Committee (Name+Affiliation of members)

For EU project workshops, 1 b-c) and 3) can be omitted; in exchange, documentation about the EU project(s) concerned should be provided (format and extent at discretion).
