The Ambient Intelligence can be envisioned as a digital environment that is sensitive/responsive to people, and it is composed of intelligent interfaces dispersed across an environment that aim to seamlessly interact and adapt to human needs. This broad vision addresses all areas of human life, such as home, work, healthcare, travel and leisure activities and it is a very active area of research, which is attracting an increasing number of professionals (both in academia and industry) worldwide.

The objective of this special session is to provide an opportunity for researchers to provide further insight into the problems solved at this stage, advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches used, lessons learned, and meaningful contributions to enhance AmI vision. In this sense, the second workshp on Future Environments and Solutions for Ambient Intelligence (FESAmI) will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of novel research ideas or actual deployments focused on the development of advanced Intelligent Environments.


The topics of interest for this special session include, but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent optimization techniques
  • Software engineering techniques
  • Virtual and mixed realities
  • Collaborative Systems in e-education and e-learning
  • Ambient Intelligence applied to health and social care
  • Environments supporting careers
  • Agent cooperation and negociation
  • Adaptation, learning and personalization
  • Ambient Assisted Living
  • Mobile Computing
  • Big Data- Machine Learning
  • Robotics
  • Evaluation, ethical and legal issues
