Ambient intelligence refers to normal working and living environments being 

surrounded by embedded devices that can merge unobtrusively and in

natural ways using information and intelligence hidden in the network

connecting these devices (e.g. The Internet of Things). Such devices, each

specialised in one or more capabilities, are intended to work together based

on an infrastructure of intelligent systems, to provide a variety of services

improving safety, security and the quality of life in ordinary living, travelling

and working environments.


The 2018 European Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI 2018) has a

focus on the role of Ambient Intelligence


"Towards a Smart and Human Centered Internet of Things".


The workshops at AmI2018 will enhance and complement the conference

program by providing an opportunity to present new or emerging and

cutting-edge topics of particular interest in the field and related areas. 


We invite workshop proposals in any topic(s) of interest to Ambient

Intelligence and related to the conference. Each workshop proposal should

be emailed to the two workshop chairs, and should contain the following

information:

Workshop Acceptance Rules

The decision on which proposed workshops get accepted will be carried-out

through a two-stage process. Initially some of the workshops proposed will

be short-listed, based on the quality of the proposal and the relevance of the

topics covered. These workshops will later be confirmed at the Final Selection

Stage if they have successfully attracted a sufficient number of reasonable

quality submissions and the corresponding number of registrations for these

submissions. Indicative numbers: half-day workshops should have at least 5

registrations and full day workshops should have at least 10. If necessary,

workshops will be merged to provide a viable programme.

Some degree of financial support may be given to the workshop organizers,

dependent on the success of the workshop.
