[HTCondor-users] 2018 European Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI 2018): Call for Workshop Proposals

Title: HTML Message

2018 European Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI 2018)

Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus, 12-14 November, 2018


*** Deadline for proposals: 1 May 2018 ***

Ambient intelligence refers to normal working and living environments being
surrounded by embedded devices that can merge unobtrusively and in
natural ways using information and intelligence hidden in the network
connecting these devices (e.g. The Internet of Things). Such devices, each
specialised in one or more capabilities, are intended to work together based
on an infrastructure of intelligent systems, to provide a variety of services
improving safety, security and the quality of life in ordinary living, travelling
and working environments.

The 2018 European Conference on Ambient Intelligence (AmI 2018) has a
focus on the role of Ambient Intelligence

"Towards a Smart and Human Centered Internet of Things".

The workshops at AmI2018 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.

We invite workshop proposals in any topic(s) of interest to Ambient
Intelligence and related to the conference. Each workshop proposal should
be emailed to the two workshop chairs, and should contain the following
• workshop title,
• duration (half day or full day),
• a description of the specific scientific/technical scope of the workshop,
• a list of topics of interest,
• the reasons why the workshop should be held within AmI2018,
• details of all the members of the Organizing Committee (OC),
• relevant experience of the organizers,
• identification of the member of the OC who is the contact person,
• the list of members of Workshop Program Committee,
• a preliminary version of the Call for Papers,
• the proposed structure of the workshop,
• planned forms of publicity and publication plans (if any, or if they want to
publish in the collective volume, see below).

Workshop Acceptance Rules
The decision on which proposed workshops get accepted will be carried-out
through a two-stage process. Initially some of the workshops proposed will
be short-listed, based on the quality of the proposal and the relevance of the
topics covered. These workshops will later be confirmed at the Final Selection
Stage if they have successfully attracted a sufficient number of reasonable
quality submissions and the corresponding number of registrations for these
submissions. Indicative numbers: half-day workshops should have at least 5
registrations and full day workshops should have at least 10. If necessary,
workshops will be merged to provide a viable programme.

Financial Support
Some degree of financial support may be given to the workshop organizers,
dependent on the success of the workshop.
