2019 European Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI2019)
Rome, Italy, 13-15 November, 2019


The AmI2019 Workshop Committee invites proposals for one-day or half-day 
workshops affiliated with the conference. The workshops at AmI2019 will 
enhance and complement the conference program by providing an 
opportunity to present new or emerging and cutting-edge topics of 
particular interest in the field and related areas.

Note that AmI2019 workshops are expected to stimulate discussions on 
state-of-the-art, emerging, visionary, and perhaps controversial topics. 
Workshops should be organized to promote such lively interaction. Plans 
to promote interaction and discussion should be clearly addressed in the 
workshop proposals. The organizers of accepted workshops are required to 
announce the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct 
the reviewing process, and decide upon the final workshop program. At 
least one organizer must be physically present at the workshop.

We invite workshop proposals in any topic(s) of interest to Ambient 
Intelligence and related to the conference. Workshops addressing new 
emerging research directions in ambient intelligence are especially 
welcome and encouraged.


The European Conference on Ambient Intelligence is the prime venue for 
research on Ambient Intelligence, with an international and 
interdisciplinary character. It brings together researchers and 
practitioners from the fields of science, engineering, and, design 
working towards the vision of Ambient Intelligence. AmI 2019 builds on 
the success of thirteen predecessor conferences, which started in 2003 
with the EUSAI-event in Veldhoven, The Netherlands. More information 
about the AmI series can be found here:

Ambient intelligence refers to normal working and living environments 
being surrounded by embedded devices that can merge unobtrusively and in 
natural ways using information and intelligence hidden in the network 
connecting these devices (e.g. The Internet of Things). Such devices, 
each specialised in one or more capabilities, are intended to work 
together based on an infrastructure of intelligent systems, to provide a 
variety of services improving safety, security and the quality of life 
in ordinary living, travelling and working environments.

AmI2019 will provide a meeting point for each of these communities, 
aiming for intensive networking and scientific debate, and shaping 
visions of the future.

This year's event focus topic is “Data-driven Ambient Intelligence” that 
follows the vision of Calm Technology, where technology is useful but 
does not demand our full attention or interfere with our usual behavior 
and activities.


Workshop proposals should be submitted (in PDF format) no later than 
February 22, 2019 by e-mail to the AmI 2019 Workshop Co-chairs with
