International Workshop on Aesthetic Intelligence

co-located with AmI'11
International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
November 16-18, 2011



Submission Deadline:  		July 25, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: 	August 16, 2011
Camera-Ready Manuscripts: 	October 17, 2011
Workshop:					November 16, 2011



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 25, 2011. 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 September 19, 2011.  
Selected workshop papers will be included in the adjunct conference  
proceedings published by Springer.
