Call: 1st International Workshop on Human-Centric Interfaces for Ambient Intelligence (HCIAmI’10)

Final Call for Papers

1st International Workshop on Human-Centric Interfaces for Ambient Intelligence (HCIAmI’10)

To be held during the 6th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’10) 19 July 2010, Monash University (Sunway campus), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This workshop will provide a forum to explore the concepts and applications of the multi-disciplinary area of human-centric interfaces, modeling, and computing for Ambient Intelligence application design. It will enable the exchange of experiences from around the world concerning the use of technologies which offer unobtrusive, intuitive, or adaptive interfaces. These technologies have a major potential to make systems easier to be used by more people, freeing ordinary citizens of the paradoxical chains that devices impose on them. The goal is to replace the classical paradigm of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in which users have to adapt themselves to computers by learning how to use them, by a new one (where the same acronym refers to Human-Centric Interfaces) in which computers adapt to users and learn how to interact with them in the most natural way. This is consistent with an increasing interest in human-centric computing, which is reflected in publications across a variety of disciplines, as well as in commercial products offering enriched user experiences in leisure, safety and well-being.

Giving the importance of human-centric computing, the workshop will provide a perspective to the research potentials in this technology applied to Ambient Intelligence, as well as call for collaboration among researchers in the fields involved. Techniques based on vision processing, automatic speech recognition and synthesis, dialogue management, handwriting, biometric interpretation, and multi-modal data acquisition and processing will be of particular interest.

All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the event, which will be a volume in the Book Series on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments:
