                 The Seventh Workshop on

  Artificial Intelligence in Mobile Systems 2007 (AIMS'07)

       In conjunction with the AISB convention 2007
        April 2-5, 2007, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Today's information technology is rapidly moving small computerised consumer
devices and hi-tech personal appliances from the desks of research labs onto
sales shelves and into our daily life. These include PDAs, embedded computers
in cameras, cars, and mobile phones as well as high performance wearable com-
puters and tablet PCs. Many of these devices are becoming essential tools that
we increasingly rely on both in private and in professional settings. In
addition, a growing number of locations are being outfitted with a ubiquitous
infrastructure and networking access. This may enhance the capabilities of
mobile  devices in supporting us when solving daily tasks and may enable new
applications. However, it also poses new challenges that AI methods may help
to address, for example:

    * limited resources (in terms of computing power,
      storage, bandwidth, screen real estate etc.)

    * context dependency (location, social context,
      mental state of the user)

    * ambiguity in interaction (speech, gestures,
      multi-modal interaction)

    * adaptation (to a user, to (partial) outages
      of services and infrastructures)

    * modelling the world (what and where things are)


Hence, the AIMS 2007 workshop intends to bring together researchers working
in various areas of (applied) AI to discuss solutions to these challenges
and further ones posed by mobile and ubiquitous computing. The main objective
of the workshop is a lively discussion and exchange of ideas based on
technical papers. The scope of interest includes but is not limited to
the following topics (in no particular order):

    * mechanisms for location and context awareness (e.g. knowledge-based
      acquisition of contextual information, inference of location)

    * spatio-temporal issues and methods in mobile and ubiquitous computing
     (e.g. correlation between spatial abstractions and different interface

    * multi-modal interfaces for mobile and ubiquitous systems

    * user interfaces that adapt to the current situation as well as to
      resource availability (e.g. modelling the trade-offs between reasoning
      capabilities, resource consumption and real-time constraints)

    * plan-based approaches for interaction and adaptation

    * user modelling for mobile and ubiquitous computing

    * scalable ontologies
