Landscapes

Chair:

Norbert Streitz, Smart Future Initiative, Germany

Description

Landscapes is a new category for presentations, that do not fall in the classical category of research papers or posters. It was very successfully introduced at the AmI-09 conference in Salzburg last year. Its purpose is to provide a forum for presenting ongoing and new initiatives and activities, overviews over significant projects, test beds, organizations and laboratories in the field of Ambient Intelligence.
Landscapes is meant to support building a mental model of the field as well as identifying trends and new directions in research as well as in development. Your submission should identify a specific position and make clear how it is different compared with other relevant activities and/or institutions. You are encouraged to supply additional material (e.g., videos, pictures if not part of the paper). The additional material has to be sent directly to the landscape chair.
Landscapes submissions should be at a maximum of 5 pages (including figures and references) and must be submitted in pdf format. Landscapes undergo a peer review process. Accepted submissions appear in the Conference Proceedings. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. After acceptance, a final, revised camera-ready version will be required in electronic form to go in the proceedings. Final camera-ready versions of accepted Landscapes papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.
Landscape proposals should follow the Springer guidelines for Proceedings (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0) and can be submitted using the Conference Review System at http://www.ami-conferences.org/crs/

Workshops

Co-Chairs:

Monica Divitini, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway
Nikolaos Georgantas, INRIA, France

Description

Workshops are an opportunity to meet in the context of the conference and discuss a common theme and/or common topics of interest. In particular emerging and future areas in the field are subject to organize a workshop at AmI-10. The workshop should have the potential to move the field forward and suggest promising directions. Workshops could be either half-day (3 hours per day) or full day workshops (6 hours per day).
Interested workshop organizers are requested to submit a proposal to the conference. If the workshop is accepted the workshop is publicized as part of the conference programme and potential participants have to submit a position paper. The criteria, reviewing and acceptance is handled by the workshop organizers. Workshops are only open to people accepted by the workshop organizer and registered for the conference and a minimum number of attendees for the workshop will be defined by the conference.
You should make clear about the general goal of the workshop, topics to be discussed, a proposal for the schedule of the workshop, the type of workshop as either half-day or full-day, the type of participants you will expect to take part, means for marketing of the workshop, the procedures for handling the reviews as well as plans for using the outcome of the workshop. After acceptance, a final, revised camera-ready version will be required in electronic form to go in the proceedings. Final camera-ready versions of accepted workshop proposals must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. After acceptance organizers should set up an external web page delivering all the necessary information for interested people.
Workshop proposals should follow the Springer guidelines for Proceedings (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0) and can be submitted using the Conference Review System at http://www.ami-conferences.org/crs/

Posters & Demos

Co-Chairs:

Kristof Van Laerhoven, TU Darmstadt, Germany
Adrian Cheok, Mixed Reality Lab, Singapore

Description

Posters should report ongoing work with a high potential to display and discuss at the conference with other conference participants. It aims at showing work in progress (such as interesting early results or valuable student projects). It is an opportunity to present and discuss current work in an informal setting. Poster submissions include a 4-page extended abstract laying out your research questions, your research approach and you contributions and results. The submissions should also include a draft of the actual poster as you plan to present at the conference.
Demos will provide the possibility to bring hands on experiences and prototypes to the conference. It aims at displaying approaches of ambient intelligence in interactive and appealing form. Demo submissions include a 4-page extended abstract laying out your goals, your approach and what could be demonstrated. The submission should also include a one page specification of the infrastructural requirements (e.g. power needs). However participants are expected to bring their demo equipment to the conference site with them.
Poster and demo proposals should follow the Springer guidelines for Proceedings (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0) and can be submitted using the Conference Review System at http://www.ami-conferences.org/crs/
