Intelligent Environments (IEs) refer to physical spaces into which IT and other pervasive computing technology are woven and used to achieve specific goals for the user, the environment or both. IEs have the ultimate objective of enriching user experience, better manage, and increase user awareness of, that environment. The 13th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’17) will be held at Seoul, the capital and largest metropolis of the Republic of Korea.
Conference Program: The conference provides a multidisciplinary collaborative forum for researchers and practitioners from Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Building Architecture, Art & Design, Sociology, Government and Education to present theoretical and practical results related to the development and applications of Intelligent Environments. The event will include regular full/short papers as well as a Doctoral Colloquium, a Posters Session and Demos & Videos Session.
Workshops Program: as in previous editions, a number of workshops during the first two days (21-22 August) will complement the main conference program. Papers accepted in any of the workshops sponsored by this conference will be included in one Proceedings volume that will collect the contributions in all workshops, see more details in the publications section.
Publications: All papers accepted in the main conference will be published in internationally indexed proceedings (negotiations are currently underway with the IEEE, who published the proceedings of previous editions of the conference). All papers accepted in the Workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (ISI indexed) by IOS Press, which will also be Open Access, and be made electronically available through the ACM Digital Library.
Journal Special Issues: a number of journal special issues will be published subsequently, encompassing core areas of the event. We have guarantees of special issues from the editorial boards of the Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments (JAISE). More special issues will be announced.
Industrial Forum: this will be a networking event providing an opportunity for the business sector to showcase their innovations.
Tutorials Programme: for this edition we will include a number of tutorials by well-known colleagues on important topics.
Special Sessions: There will be a selection of “special sessions” on particular topical themes within the main conference. These will include sessions on “Ambient Intelligence for Elderly or Cognitively Impaired People”, on “Robotics and Intelligent Environments” and on “Advanced Human Augmentation”. More details will be released through the webpage of the event.
Awards: a number of awards will recognize the best Full Paper, Short Paper, Doctoral Colloquium paper, Demo, and Video.
Important Dates: Workshop/Tutorial/Special Sessions proposal: 15th December 2016 Conference paper submission: 15st Feb 2017 (Regular Papers) 1st Mar 2017 (Other tracks: Short Papers, etc.) Workshops paper submission: 24th April 2017 Early Bird registration: 22th June 2017
