Special Issue on Ambient Intlligence - IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine

Call for Papers
Special Issue on Ambient Intelligence
IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine

Ambient intelligence deals with a new conception of the digital world where 
computing devices are spread everywhere (for example, appliances, clothes, 
and buildings), letting human beings interact with them intelligently and 
unobtrusively. Ambient-intelligence environments might be very diverse, such 
as homes, offices, meeting rooms, schools, hospitals, control centers, 
transport facilities, tourist attractions, stores, sports facilities, and 
music devices.
The AI community has the mission of including more intelligence in these 
environments. Such intelligence should provide better user support and help 
users access the knowledge needed to make better decisions when interacting 
with these environments.
This special issue of IEEE Intelligent Systems will present real-world cases 
or prototypes of ambient-intelligence environments in which AI methodologies 
and techniques are crucial for accomplishing the ambient-intelligence goals. 
These environments might be related to leisure or work, industry or 
services, health, energy, transportation, and so on. The submitted papers 
must involve AI (for example, logic, knowledge representation, search and 
planning, natural language processing, machine learning, knowledge-based 
systems, multiagent systems, and intelligent robotics and vision) and make 
clear how using AI in the considered environment helps achieve ambient
