SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS [apologies for cross-posting]

International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI-11)

'Shaping the Next Decade'

November 16-18, 2011 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands,

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) represents a vision of the future in which 
products and services will be responsive to the user context, offering a 
variety of applications in the professional and consumer domains. AmI 
combines concepts of ubiquitous technology, intelligent systems and advanced
user interface design putting the humans in the centre of technological 
developments. Starting as the European Symposium on Ambient Intelligence 
in 2003 the event has grown to an annual international conference that 
brings together researchers and serves as a forum to discuss the latest 
trends and solutions. Following the publication of early scenarios on 
Ambient Intelligence in 2001 by the European Commission’s Joint Research 
Centre, the theme of AmI-11
will focus on the “The Road Ahead, Shaping the Next 10 Years”

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original, unpublished work 
in all areas related to AmI. The contributions can be research papers, 
landscape sessions, late-breaking result posters, demonstrations and 
workshops, describing significant advances in AmI on the following themes:

-Multimodal / Tangible Interaction / Natural User Interfaces
-Smart Spaces / Social Intelligence / Context Awareness
-Embedded User Interfaces
-Prototyping / Tools
-Design Methods / Evaluation
-Smart Input / Display / Vision
-Security / Privacy / Trust
-Business Models
-Knowledge Systems / Computational Intelligence / Pattern Detection
-Autonomic Systems / Agents

Contributions are welcomed for the following conference tracks:
– FULL PAPERS (10 pages): Original, high quality research contributions 
advancing the state of the art in AmI. Work reflecting various 
interdisciplinary aspects of AmI research with clear results.

– LANDSCAPES (5 pages): These provide a forum for presenting ongoing 
work and new initiatives and activities, overviews of significant 
projects, testbeds, organizations and laboratories in the field of AmI.

– WORKSHOPS: An opportunity to meet in the context of the conference and 
to discuss emerging and future areas in a field of interest. Organized 
as full day workshops (6 hours per day) and half-day workshops (3 hours 
per day):
*Aesthetic Intelligence: Designing Smart and Beautiful Architectural Spaces
*Human-Centered Design of Smart/Ambient Environments and Services: 
Models and Tools for Tasks Migratability
*Interactive Human Behavior Analysis in Open or Public Spaces
*Workshop on User Interaction Methods for Elderly, People With Dementia
*Empowering and integrating senior citizens with virtual coaching
*Integration of AMI and AAL platforms in the Future Internet (FI) 
Platform initiative
*Ambient Gaming
*2nd Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding: Inducing Behavioral 
*Privacy, Trust and Interaction in the Internet of Things

– LATE BREAKING PAPERS (5 pages): Results based on scientific evidence 
toward novel and valuable contributions in the field of AmI. Work of high
potential and well positioned in the state of the art.

– DEMOS & POSTERS : Ongoing work with a high potential to attract 
interest and to create discussions with other conference participants. 
include a 4-page extended abstract laying out research approach, 
contributions and results.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer. Authors are 
invited to submit original papers, not previously submitted to other
conferences or journals, of not more than 10 pages for full papers and 5 
pages for late breaking/landscape papers in single-column, single-spaced
text following the Springer LNCS manuscript guidelines 
Full and short paper submissions must be anonymised to facilitate blind 
review. Instructions for manuscripts preparation and paper submission will
be found on the conference web site
