Call for Workshops

Call for Workshop

The AmI2019 Workshop Committee invites proposals for one-day or half-day workshops affiliated with the conference. The workshops at AmI2019 will enhance and complement the conference program by providing an opportunity to present new or emerging and cutting-edge topics of particular interest in the field and related areas.

Note that AmI2019 workshops are expected to stimulate discussions on state-of-the-art, emerging, visionary, and perhaps controversial topics. Workshops should be organized to promote such lively interaction. Plans to promote interaction and discussion should be clearly addressed in the workshop proposals. The organizers of accepted workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct the reviewing process, and decide upon the final workshop program. At least one organizer must be physically present at the workshop.

We invite workshop proposals in any topic(s) of interest to Ambient Intelligence and related to the conference. Workshops addressing new emerging research directions in ambient intelligence are especially welcome and encouraged.

Submission Guidelines

Workshop proposals should be submitted (in PDF format) no later than January 31, 2019 by e-mail to the AmI 2019 Workshop Co-chairs with "AmI2019 Workshop Proposal" in the subject. Workshops will be held immediately prior to the main conference.

  1. Workshop title and acronym,
  2. Duration (half day or full day),
  3. A description of the specific scientific/technical scope of the workshop,
  4. A list of topics of interest,

Workshop Proceedings

Upon agreement with all accepted Workshop organizers, the proceedings from all Workshops will be compiled into a single volume and published as an online CEUR Volume, indexed by SCOPUS.
