Call: 3rd International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence – Software and Applications (ISAmI 2012)

3rd International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence – Software and Applications
28th-30th March, 2012 :: Salamanca, Spain

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 2012 will be held at the University of Salamanca, Spain. This symposium will be organized by the Biomedicine, Intelligent System and Educational Technology Research Group ( of the University of Salamanca.


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In order to fulfill these objectives, submissions of substantial, original and previously unpublished work are invited in all areas of Ambient Intelligence.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


We are looking forward to receiving contributions from anyone interested in participating and presenting their work at this symposium. We are accepting two types of submissions:

  1. Regular Paper. It must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference. It may be accepted as a Long paper, a Short paper or a Poster.
  2. Doctoral Paper. PhD students are invited to present the topic and progress of their research in order to obtain feedback from a panel of experts. Papers should be written in English, with a maximum of 8 (eight) pages.


Papers must be prepared according to Springer’s templates (MS Word orLaTeX format) for the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing volume series (


In order to submit a paper, authors must register at the ISAmI 2011 conference management system ( All papers must be submitted in electronic format (PDF format, word document or latex and images).


Paper submission deadline: 14th October, 2011
Notification of acceptance: 9th December, 2011
Final version submission: 9th January, 2012
ISAmI 2011 Conference: 28th – 30th April, 2012


All accepted papers will be published in a special volume of Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing (Springer), indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP and Springerlink, among others. For each paper, at least one author is required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper, so as to have it included in the symposium proceedings.
