Welcome to AmI-07
The proceedings are available from Springer:
Ambient Intelligence represents a vision of the future where we shall
be surrounded by electronic environments, sensitive and responsive to
people. Ambient Intelligence technologies are expected to combine
concepts of ubiquitous computing and intelligent systems putting
humans in the centre of technological developments.
The conference aims to bring together top researchers both from
academia and industry within the various disciplines that constitute
the field of ambient intelligence to stimulate research and create
links between industry and academia allowing the exploration of new
frontiers in the area of ambient intelligence.
AmI-07 is the second joint conference that brings together two series
of events. The first series of events is called conference on smart
objects (sOc) and has been organized by France Telecom and by the
French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) both in
Grenoble, France in 2001 and 2003. The second series of events is
called European Symposium on Ambient Intelligence (EUSAI)
and has been organized by Philips and University of Eindhoven both in
Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 the first joined
conference of sOc and EUSAI has been organized in Grenoble, France
and was called sOc-EUSAI'05.
Now in 2007 we are expanding the scope
of the series by including three different types of contributions:
research contributions, experience contributions and industry and
AmI-07 features several top speakers from research and industry in
its rich keynote program:
Gregory D. Abowd (Georgia Tech),
Patricia Maes (MIT Media Lab),
Emile Aarts (Philips Research),
Lutz Heuser (SAP),
James "Bo" Begole (PARC), and
Norbert Streitz (Fraunhofer).
The format of the conference will be dual track and comprises three
different types of contributions:
- Research Contributions: an international PC-committee will peer-review
and select high-quality and original research in all areas of Ambient
Intelligence submitted as research papers
- Case Studies and Lessons Learned: an international PC-committee will
select the contributions most valuable to the Ambient Intelligence
- Industry and Socio-Economic Contributions: an international PC-committee
will select the most innovative contributions on commercial
and socio-economic aspects of ambient intelligence.
|All accepted contributions will be included in the Conference Proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The proceedings will also be made available through the digital library.
