Call for Papers

15th International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence (ISAmI'24)

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a recent paradigm emerging from Artificial Intelligence (AI), where computers are used as proactive tools assisting people with their day-to-day activities, making everyone’s life more comfortable.

Another main concern of AmI originates from the human-computer interaction domain and focuses on offering ways to interact with systems in a more natural way by means of user-friendly interfaces. This field is evolving quickly as can be witnessed by the emerging natural language and gesture based types of interaction.

The inclusion of computational power and communication technologies in everyday objects is growing and their embedding into our environments should be as invisible as possible. In order for AmI to be successful, human interaction with computing power and embedded systems in the surroundings should be smooth and happen without people actually noticing it. The only awareness people should have arises from AmI: more safety, comfort and wellbeing, emerging in a natural and inherent way. ISAmI is the International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence, aiming to bring together researchers from various disciplines that constitute the scientific field of Ambient Intelligence to present and discuss the latest results, new ideas, projects and lessons learned. Brand new ideas will be greatly appreciated, as well as relevant revisions and actualizations of previously presented work, project summaries and PhD theses.

Topics

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications
  • Ambient Assisted Living
  • Ubiquitous Computing
  • Artificial Intelligence for AmI
  • Distributed Computing
  • Domotics (Home Automation)
  • Pervasive Computing
  • Context Aware Computing
  • Agent & Multiagent Systems for AmI
  • Mobile Computing
  • Robotics
  • Computational Creativity
  • Sentient Computing
  • e-Health
  • Context Modelling
  • e-Learning
  • Memory Assistant

The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a framework as part of which students can present their ongoing research work and meet other students and researchers and obtain feedback on lines of research for the future.

The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who are still far from completing their dissertation.

All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough reviewing process with the aim of providing detailed and constructive feedback. The accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the conference proceedings.

The submissions should identify:

  • Problem statement
  • Related work
  • Hypothesis
  • Proposal
  • Preliminary Results and/or Evaluation Plan
  • Reflections

Format

All papers must be formatted according to the LNNS template, with a maximum length of 10 pages (6 pages for Doctoral Consortia), including figures and references:

Submission

All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the ISAmI conference management system.

Review process

ISAmI welcomes the submission of papers and gives preference to the topics listed under the call. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; each paper will be refereed by at least three experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.

The papers must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference.

Publication

Accepted papers will be included in ISAmI Proceedings. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings. All the accepted papers will be published by Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems series of Springer Verlag.
