Conference Theme

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 socio-economic contributions.

Keynote Speakers

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 community
  • 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.
