AmI 2015 - European Conference on Ambient Intelligence

11-13 November 2015 - Athens, Greece







Call for Workshop Proposals - PDF

The European Conference on Ambient Intelligence is the prime venue for research on Ambient Intelligence, with an international and interdisciplinary character. It brings together researchers from the fields of science, engineering, and, design working towards the vision of Ambient Intelligence.

AmI-15 will provide a meeting point for each of these communities, aiming for intensive networking and scientific debate, and shaping visions of the future. Workshops are an opportunity to meet in the context of the Conference and discuss a common theme and/or common topics of interest. In particular, emerging and future areas in AmI are particularly suitable to the Workshop format. All types of Workshop proposals will be considered, including thematic Workshops, e.g. based on real-world datasets, which will provide researchers with an opportunity to present novel ideas for services based on the data. Overall, Workshops should have the potential to move the field forward and suggest promising directions.

Workshops could be either half-day (3 hours per day) or full day (6 hours per day). It is envisaged that all Workshops at AmI-15 will be held in November 11, 2015. Prospective Workshop organizers are invited to submit a proposal for consideration. If the proposal is accepted, it will be publicized on the Conference Web site and potential participants will be invited for paper submission. The reviewing process and acceptance criteria will be handled by the Workshop organizers. Workshops are only open to people accepted by the Workshop organizers and registered for the Conference. A minimum required number of attendees for each Workshop will be defined by the Conference Committee. Workshop organizers will be expected to set up an external Web page delivering all the necessary information for those interested.

Please submit a (max two pages) proposal using the following headings:
  1. Workshop title.
  2. Organizers, Affiliations and Contact details.
  3. Brief description of the Workshop topic.
  4. Rationale (why this topic is of interest?).
  5. Experience in organizing Workshops/Conferences.
  6. Outline of plan for organizing the Workshop including, for example, publicity, TPC recruitment, review procedures, expected number of participants, profile of participants and any other information deemed relevant.

The Workshop proposal submissions should follow the Springer CS proceedings instructions available here.
