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

-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
