**********************************************************************
International Joint Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI-11)

"Shaping the Next Decade"

November 16-18, 2011 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands, www.ami-11.org
**********************************************************************

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) represents a vision of the future in which 
products and services will be responsive to the user context, offering a 
rich 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Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original, unpublished work 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
-Robots


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).

-- 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. 
Submissions include a 4-page extended abstract laying out research 
approach, contributions and results.
