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

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, traveling 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.

The Proceedings of AmI2019 will be published by Springer in the Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Best Paper Award: 1,000 EUR, sponsored by Springer.


We invite submissions of full and short papers presenting original 
research. AmI 2019 is an interdisciplinary venue for leading 
international researchers, designers, and practitioners that present and 
discuss new results in Ambient Intelligence.

The length of each paper including figures and references may not exceed 
16 pages for regular papers and 6 pages for short papers.

Papers must be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are 
encouraged to minimize any references that may reveal the identity of 
the authors and their institutions. Relevant references to an author's 
previous research should not be suppressed but instead referenced in a 
neutral way. All papers will be reviewed by at least three Program 
Committee members.

The length of each paper including figures and references may not exceed 
16 pages for regular papers and 6 pages for short papers. The posters 
session aims to collect papers showing work in progress and thus raise 
opportunities to present and discuss current work in an informal 
setting. These papers will be presented as posters in the conference. 
Poster contributions may not exceed 2 pages, including figures and 

All paper and poster submissions must be written in English and 
submitted in PDF format.
For preparation of papers and posters please follow the instructions for 
authors available at the Springer LNCS Web page
