8th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing & Ambient Intelligence (UCAmI 2014) & 6th International Work-conference on Ambient Assisted Living (IWAAL 2014) Belfast - 2nd - 5th December 2014 Call For Papers
The paradigm of Ubiquitous Computing as originally envisioned by Weiser in 1991, has recently evolved into a more general paradigm referred to as Ambient Intelligence (AmI). AmI represents a new generation of user-centred computing environments which aim to find new and innovative ways to obtain an improved level of integration of information technology into everyday life, devices and user activities.
AmI environments relate to the integration of several autonomous computational devices ranging from consumer electronics to mobile phones. Ideally, those within an AmI environment will not be aware of these devices, however, they will benefit from the services which they provide. Devices embedded within the environment are aware of the people present and subsequently react to their gestures, actions and context. Recently, the interest in AmI has grown considerably due to new challenges posed by society, demanding highly innovative services such as vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), e-Health, Internet of Things and Home Automation amongst others.
The main focus of this edition of the UCAmI Conference will be "Ubiquitous Computing & Ambient Intelligence: Personalisation and user adapted services". Meanwhile, the edition of the IWAAL Conference will be focused on "Ambient Assisted Living and Daily Activities".
We look forward to welcoming you all to Belfast in December 2014!
