CFP: AITAmI 09: Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Ambient Intelligence

Call for Papers

4th Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Ambient Intelligence
(AITAmI'09) - Barcelona, Spain. 19th July 2009

Co-located with
5th International Conference on Intelligent Environments
20th-21st of July, 2009

Background and Goals:  Imagine a future where human environments respond to human preferences and needs. In this world, devices equipped with simple intelligence and the abilities to sense, communicate, and act will be unremarkable features of our world.  We will expect the car to warn us of hazards, track our location and provide timely route advice.  We will speak to simple machines and hold conversations with more complex systems, such as intelligent homes that will help us monitor conditions, track routine tasks, and program the behaviour of the heat, the lights, the garden watering and the entertainment centre.  Analogous systems at work will make simple decisions in our stead ranging from scheduling meetings to negotiating for common services over the web. Such systems will also acquire, and adapt to our preferences over time.  In sum, we will come to view simple software intelligence as an ambient feature of our environment.

The infrastructure for ambient intelligence is fast coming on line. Computational resources are cheap and becoming cheaper, while ubiquitous network access has started to appear. Market forces will soon produce applications.  We take the view that ambient intelligence is imminent and inevitable, and that the time is ripe to take stock. This workshop will provide that opportunity by gathering researchers in a variety of AI subfields together with representatives of commercial interests to explore the technology and applications for ambient intelligence.

Areas of interest: include, but are not limited to, the following:
- agent-based approaches to AmI
- interaction with autonomous systems
- individual/group emotional status
- individual/group preferences
- mediating conflicting interests
- intelligent interactive systems
- multi-modal interfaces  (voice, image and video, bio-signals, handwriting, etc.)
- modelling complex environments (smart homes, hospitals, museums, transportation, classrooms, etc.)
- non invasive sensing and interaction
- context awareness
- cognitive modelling of users
- applications (health, industry, teaching, supporting group collaboration, etc.)
- responsive/active architecture
- innovative applications of AI to Ambient Intelligence
- traditional relevant areas of AI (KR, reasoning about actions, spatio-temporal reasoning,  CBR, planning, uncertainty, learning, belief revision, vision, decision-making, etc.)

Important Dates:
    April 30t, 2009: deadline first submission
    May 28th, 2009: notifications to authors
    June 12 2009: final version submitted

Publications: all papers accepted will be published in the proceedings of the event.  Relevant post-workshop publications will be pursued.

Ph.D. Grants: The organizers of this event will seek to offer partial funding to Ph.D. students with accepted papers at our event. The quality of the submission and the financial situation of the student will be part of the selection criteria.

Best Presentation Awards:  there will be prizes in the categories of 'Best Presented Paper' and 'Best Presented Poster'.
