 *The 7th International Conference on Intelligent Environments

The 7th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’11) will be
held at Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom. This conference is the
seventh edition in a series of highly successful conferences that were
organized in Colchester (UK), Athens (Greece), Ulm (Germany), Seattle (USA),
Barcelona (Spain) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) in the past six years. The
conference provides a collaborative forum for scientists, researchers and
engineers from both industry and academia to present theoretical and
practical results of Intelligent Environments research and their application
in various domains and disciplines. This conference program will include
workshops, invited lectures and special sessions of full and posters. Topics
of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Ambient Intelligence
- Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing
- Intelligent Agents
- Context Awareness
- End-User Programming
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Smart Sensors
- Affective Systems
- Wearables (smart clothes, digital fashion)
- Domestic Robotics
- Virtual & Mixed-Reality
- Tele-care and Telemedicine
- Middleware
- Networking
- Communications
- Development/Testing/Evaluation Methodologies

Aditionally, for this edition there are special tracks of interest on:
Architecture, Ambient Assisted Living, Smart Agriculture, AI, Arts & Design,
Educational Technology, HCI, Networks, Sustainable Pervasive Systems and
Social Sciences, together with tracks on New Horizons and Theoretical

Regular Submissions: Authors are invited to submit full papers of no more
than eight (8) pages (including any data, figures and references) in
standard IEEE double-column format. All papers submitted to IE'10 must be
unpublished previously and should not be undergoing consideration for
publication elsewhere during IE'10 review period.

In addition to full papers, authors can submit papers to any of the three
following to be held during the conference.  The length limit for papers
submitted to these tracks is 4 pages.  Papers accepted in any of these
tracks will also be included in the Conference Proceedings (see more details
in Publications section below). The deadline for submitting to these tracks
is the same than for main conference paper submission.   Contact details are
offered further down in this document.

Doctoral Colloquium: this track is designed to encourage PhD students to
discuss their ideas in a friendly context.   The PhD student should be the
main author of the paper.

Posters Session: this track encourages shorter reports on recent progress,
which will be assessed as scientific contributions with the same standards
of quality than other papers submitted to the main conference and presented
during the posters session.

Demos and Videos Session: this track provides the opportunity to show the
community the advances in your project. Videos should be accompanied by a
paper explaining the system being presented.

NEW! This year we are offering a challenge to encourage advances in the
realization of Intelligent Environments.  There will be prizes within the
Demo/video track to reward important achievements.  The most important prize
will be the one that measures how close an IE becomes to an equivalent human
assistant:  "How Intelligent is your Intelligent Environment?". More details
on this challenge will be released through the web site of the event.

Workshops Program: as in previous editions, a number of workshops will
complement the main conference program. These parallel events will provide a
stimulating environment for the discussion of work in progress and the
assessment of new ideas.   Length limit for submissions to any workshop: 12
pages.  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 Publications section.
Deadline for submissions: independent from the main conference and provided
in separate Call for Papers.

Important Dates:

Workshop proposals submission: 19 December 2010
Workshop Notification of acceptance: 9 January 2011
Conference paper submission: 14 February 2011 Conference Notification of
acceptance: 21 March 2011
Conference Paper final submission: 11 April 2011

Publications:  all papers accepted in the main conference will be
electronically available through IEEE Explore.  All papers accepted in the
Workshops program will be published in printed form as a volume of the
Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (ISI indexed) of IOS
Press and electronically available through ACM Digital Library.    Three
Special Issues in Journals will be Published, in the areas of AmI (by
JAISE), AAL (journal being agreed) and HCI (journal being agreed).

Best Paper Prizes: This year, the IOS Press will again provide a prize, in
the form of a free 12 months subscription to the Journal of Ambient
Intelligence and Smart Environments, for the "Best Conference Paper Award".
