*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 

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.

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.

The authors of the best papers to be accepted at AmI 2019 will be 
invited to submit substantially extended and revised versions of their 
papers with at least 70% new material to a special journal issue for AmI 
2019 to be published in the Journal of Ambient Intelligence and 
Humanised Computing, by Springer.

- Full Papers and Short Papers Submissions due: 10th June 2019 *19th 
July 2019*
- Notification of Acceptance/Rejection: 22nd July 2019 12th August 2019
- Camera-Ready Versions due: 22nd August 2019
- Author Registration: 22nd August 2019
- Early (non-author) Registration: 30th September 2019

AmI2019 hosts one-day or half-day workshops that 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.
- Ambient Intelligence for promoting Sustainable Behaviors (BRAINS)
- Edge Machine Learning for Smart IoT Environments 
- Ambient Intelligence in the Blockchain Era: How Decentralized Services 
can Revolutionize the Traditional Client Server Paradigm in Automation 
and Ambient Intelligence

AmI2019 hosts the PhD Forum that intends to bring together PhD students 
working on theories and applications of Ambient Intelligence. We 
particularly encourage students that are somewhere in the middle of 
their research to submit to this Forum.

AmI 2019 hosts the Poster & Demo sessions. The Posters session aims to 
solicit papers showing work in progress and thus raise opportunities to 
present and discuss current work in an informal setting. The Demo 
session provides a venue for the latest breakthroughs in ambient 
intelligence to be presented live to the research community.
