Second International Workshop on Aesthetic Intelligence

co-located with AmI'12
International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence
Pisa, Italy
November 13-15, 2012



Extended Submission Deadline:  	July 15, 2012
Notification of Acceptance: 		August 6, 2012
Camera-Ready Manuscripts: 		August 27, 2012
Workshop:						November 13, 2012



In a very general sense, the concept of Ambient Intelligence implies that some sort of intelligence surrounds us – somehow. But how does Ambient Intelligence manifest itself? Where does it show up and how do people notice and interact with it? Should it stay invisible or should it form a perceptible digital layer augmenting the physical space?
While many of these almost philosophical questions are still actively discussed in our research community, the integration of digital technology into physical spaces is already happening and changes our environment, both visually and functionally. This workshop addresses the ongoing transformation and provides a platform for interested researchers and practitioners to discuss the visual and perceptual possibilities that arise from the use of Ambient Intelligence technology in public and private spaces. The focus of the workshop will be on the relevance of beauty and aesthetic values for Ambient Intelligence and the meaning of aesthetically pleasing design for usability, technology acceptance, and well-being in technology-enhanced spaces.



The workshop aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines to discuss the interrelation of functional, architectural, and aesthetic factors and their consequences for the design, use and acceptance of Ambient Intelligence environments. Recommended topics for position papers include, but are not limited to, the following:


    * Smart Buildings and Smart Spaces
    * Intelligent Façades
    * Human-Building Interaction
    * Phenomenology
    * Innovative Materials
    * Urban Screens and Large Displays
    * Novel Living Concepts


    * User Experience Design
    * Participatory Design
    * Emotional and Hedonic Design
    * Interaction Design
    * Multidisciplinary or Interdisciplinary Design
    * Tools and Design Techniques for Smart Environments

Human-Computer Interaction

    * Human Aspects of Future and Emerging Technologies
    * User Diversity
    * Human-Computer Interaction in Smart Environments
    * User-Centered or Human-Centered Design
    * Emotion and Affective User Interfaces
    * Adaptive and Tangible User Interfaces for Smart Environments



Interested researchers are invited to submit a position paper (2-4 pages) formatted according to the Springer format via the workshop submission website ( until July 15, 2012. The papers should focus on current research activities and/or interesting aspects of future work. All position papers will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on their novelty, originality, and relevance to the workshop theme. Authors of accepted position papers will be notified until August 6, 2012. Selected workshop papers will be included in the adjunct conference proceedings published by Springer.
