Third International Workshop on Aesthetic Intelligence

co-located with AmI'13
Fourth International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence
Dublin, Ireland
December 3 - 5, 2013



- Submission Deadline: 		August 15, 2013
- Notification of Acceptance: 	September 1, 2013
- Camera-Ready Papers: 		September 20, 2013
- Workshop: 					December 3, 2013



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 August 15, 2013. 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 1 and invited to submit a revised and extended version of their paper until Septmember 20 for inclusion in the adjunct conference proceedings published by Springer in its Communications in Computer and Information Science series.
