[DMANET] First CfP: Ambient Intelligence for Large Premises (AmILP 2016) at ECAI-16


First Call for Papers

AmILP 2016 at ECAI 2016

Date: August 29th, 2016

The Hague, Netherlands

*** Deadline: May 15th, 2016 ***


The First International Workshop on

Ambient Intelligence for Large Premises (AmILP 2016)

held at the European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2016)


In the name of the MOSI-AGIL (Social Modelling of Ambient Intelligence for
Large Premises) project ( ), we would like to
cordially invite you to consider contributing an original research paper to
AmILP 2016, held as part of the European Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (ECAI 2016).

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is intended to provide users with systems tightly
integrated with their everyday environment and activities. The goal is
minimizing the need of explicit actions by users, through the continuous and
distributed orchestration of information and actuation devices. With the
advances in the field, AmI is pursuing growingly ambitious goals in terms of
the size and integration of its smart spaces, the number of served users,
and the level of adaptation to them.

AmILP 2016 will be focused on the particular challenges and potential
solutions that appear when AmI moves to Large Premises (LP). In this
context, new requirements consider big groups of people moving in premises
that fall beyond the classical closed and controlled environments of most
AmI systems. The ways of interaction, the expected services, and the
behaviour of people acquire a new dimension and variability in those
interconnected smart spaces. AmI systems need to adapt to the crowds using
large numbers of multiple and heterogeneous AmI resources in distributed and
frequently uncontrollable environments that cause unexpected dynamic changes
in the system topology.


AmILP 2016 aims at providing a forum for discussing recent advances in
engineering complex AmI systems acting in large premises. The research
emerging in this domain faces multidisciplinary issues, both technical and
social. In particular, the areas of interest are the following (not

Psychology of crowds

Sociology of crowds

Crowd simulation

Crowd coordination

Environment specifications and models

Inclusive design

Sensor networks

Information fusion

Machine learning

Agent-based simulation techniques and methodologies

AmI engineering driven by formal models

AmI toolkits and frameworks

AmI testing in large premises

Industrial case studies

Scalability in AmI for large premises


Prospective authors are invited to prepare original papers formatted
according to the camera-ready style for ECAI 2016
<> . Papers
should be submitted electronically in PDF format using the EasyChair
conference management system available at .

AmILP accepts both full-length and short papers. The maximum length for
short papers is 4 pages (at least 3 pages), while for full papers the
maximum length is 8 pages (at least 5 pages). Selected full papers will be
presented at the main workshop session. Selected short papers will be
presented in a poster session.

All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of their relevance,
originality, significance, soundness and clarity. At least three referees
will review independently each submission.


The organizers will provide a single PDF file to be posted on the ECAI 2016
website and on the ECAI-AmILP 2016 workshop website. Moreover, the
proceedings will be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings series
( Copyright of papers remain with the authors.


We also plan to publish a special issue of an ISI-ranked journal "Computer
Science and Information Systems" of a small number of best papers extended
with at least 30 % of additional unpublished original work and fully
refereed according to the journal standards. After the conference, authors
of selected full papers will be invited to re-submit their work for the
special issue.


For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for AmILP 2016
and participate at the workshop. Please check the ECAI 2016 website for
registration procedure, fees as well as cancellation policies.
