CFP: Journal Theme Issue on Sensor-Driven Computing and Applications for Ambient Intelligence

Theme Issue on "Sensor-Driven Computing and Applications for Ambient Intelligence"
Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is essentially a sensor-driven, user-centric computing and application paradigm. It represents a vision of a world of digitally augmented physical environment where sensors are embedded ubiquitously and transparently into everyday objects and living spaces, to enable fine-grain capture of user and ambient context information that provides the basis of intelligence for higher-order cognitive systems, i.e. systems that can perceive, reason, learn, and react intelligently to their environments.
Sensors provide the important bridge between the physical world and the computing systems for AmI applications. Through a myriad of sensing modalities, information about the state of the users, objects they interacted with, activities they engaged in, and their surroundings, can be acquired and translated to contextual knowledge for ‘cognitizing’ computing systems, making them ever sensitive and responsive to the needs and situation of the humans under their support or care.
This theme issue aims to present the state-of-the-art in all aspects of sensor-driven computing and innovative sensor-driven applications for ambient intelligence. It seeks original research papers that report significant contributions to the field, as well as review articles that analyze and discuss recent advances, trends and challenges. We hope that this issue will become an essential reference for researchers in the field and will stimulate a wider discussion that in turn paves the way for further advances towards technology maturity of sensor-based AmI systems and applications.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
• User and ambient context modeling and reasoning
• User intent and activity inference and learning algorithms
• Cyber-physical computing for human-centric applications
• Sensor or sensor-embedded object localization and position tracking
• Sensor augmented user-system interfaces for smart spaces
• Sensor-driven bio-inspired computing for AmI applications
• Sensor-driven user profiling and personalization of AmI services
• Sensor-enabled social interaction in AmI environments
• Innovative AmI systems, applications, and services
