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 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
thesis.

ISAmI 2011 will be held at the University of Salamanca, Spain.
This symposium will be organized by the Biomedicine, Intelligent System and
Educational Technology Research Group (http://bisite.usal.es/) of the
University of Salamanca.

CONTRIBUTIONS
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

As in the previous edition, the goals of ISAmI are:

• to create the appropriate conditions for researchers to disseminate their
research work; • to strengthen the relationships among the AmI research
groups; • to facilitate the contact between new researchers and consolidated
groups; • to help the diffusion of new developments to the community.

In order to fulfill these objectives, submissions of substantial, original
and previously unpublished work are invited in all areas of Ambient
Intelligence. The papers can be presented from a formal, methodological,
technical or applied point of view focus, namely, in AmI Software and
Applications.

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
