Call: First International Workshop on Ambient Intelligence for Large Premises (AmILP 2016)

Call for Papers

The First International Workshop on
Ambient Intelligence for Large Premises (AmILP 2016)
held at the European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2016)

Date: August 29th, 2016
The Hague, Netherlands

AmILP 2016 Submission Deadline: May 29th, 2016 (firm deadline)

Special Issue of SJR- and JCR-ranked Journal ComSIS


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 exclusive):

  • 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 SJR and JCR-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.
