WAmIi Call for Papers

We would like to welcome you to participate and contribute to the Workshop on Ambient Intelligence Infrastructures (WAmIi).


The focus of the event is to bring together representative members of the industrial and scientific communities that have contributed in the past to the development of Ambient Intelligence infrastructures in the context of European and national projects.


The input provided by the workshop participants is intended to be used in building a systematic landscape of the work done so far in the domain. This overview will provide further insight into the problems solved at this stage, advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches used, and lessons learned.


In the end, the workshop discussions session would allow identifying the “white spaces” that have not yet been investigated at this stage, thereby preparing the ground for future meaningful contributions that draw from a pool of knowledge provided by a whole community rather than a particular team.


Topics for presentations

The workshop papers and subsequent discussions are open to topics related to the architecture, design and implementation of Ambient Intelligence software middleware infrastructures as well as the devices and services they support. Examples include but are not limited to:

  • Architecture and design criteria leading to decisions regarding differentiating between application specific and infrastructure functionality,

  • Ambient Intelligence services,

  • Multi-device communication and interaction,

  • Ethical aspects, privacy, security and trust,

  • User interaction, embedded intelligence and learning behavior,

  • Resource management and Quality of Service (QoS) management
