*JAISE-HCogRL Thematic Issue Proposal*

*Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments (JAISE) - Thematic
Issue on:*

*Human-centred AmI: Cognitive Approaches, Reasoning and Learning (HCogRL)*


This thematic issue is focused on the design and development of Ambient
Intelligent systems which take into account cognitive issues when modelling
the users, apply human understandable representations or reasoning or learn
users' preferences and adapt to them. This call is expecting contributions
from an international audience on recent developments and experiments that:

·      Present innovative and state-of-the-art designs,

·      Describe real-world or virtual/simulated deployments,

·      Share experiences, insights, best-practices and lessons-learned,

·      Report the results of technical and social evaluations,

·      Discuss and highlight the key challenges and future developments
within the domain.

In terms of real applications, proactive, adaptive and real-time solutions
for the final user are a big challenge, especially when complex activities
and multiple-users are considered.  The quality, cost, efficiency and
reliability of the systems are important but also their usability, in which
taking into account cognitive issues is fundamental.

In this thematic issue we want to put together Ambient Intelligent systems
(AmI) centred in humans which use and apply cognitive approaches in their
design. We are keen to encourage the submission of papers from a wide
variety of backgrounds and perspectives that relate designs and
developments in both research and industry.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-       Human-Computer Interaction

-       Emotion detection and/or prediction

-       Human-centred interfaces

-       Handling preferences of the individual users and user groups

-       Logic and Reasoning

-       Automated reasoning: deductive, probabilistic, diagnostic, causal,
qualitative reasoning, etc.

-       Automated learning (i.e. Support Vector Machines, Neural Networks,

-       Knowledge Representation and Cognition (e.g. Qualiative
representations, Ontologies and representation of common sense etc.)

-       Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing &

-       Embodied vs. ambient intelligence

-       Context awareness

-       Mobile and wearable computing

-       Ubiquitous computing

-       Computational Creativity

-       Decision Support Systems

-       Applications in health care: assisted living, fall detection,
elderly care, patient monitoring

-       Applications in smart homes: home safety, energy efficiency,
entertainment, ambience, multimedia

-       Applications in smart buildings, smart cities, living-labs, smart
classrooms, smart cars, in safety, energy efficiency, services

-       Robotics applied to Smart Environments

-       Intuitive user interface design

-       Usability of AmI systems

-       Evaluation of cognitively driven AmI systems

-       Methodological open questions on AmI and Cognition


Papers should be of 12 pages or longer (papers of up to 30 pages can be
accepted, but authors should aim for between 15 and 20 pages) and adhere to
the guidelines given on the Web page: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.mstracker&d=DQIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=0gBmDjl0h2duZkOZnDdG6RJyBzwz9JUjpUbZ62rOdYQ&s=hSrjrw1yrMapJrzzRXE0f8HoQBY2QfTSI9kF8FY4wjU&e= .
