Intelligent Environments (IE) refer to physical spaces in which IT and other pervasive computing technology are woven and used to achieve specific goals for the user, the environment or both. IE enriches user experience, better manages the environment's resources, and increases user awareness of that environment.

The 8th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’12) will be held at the beautiful and historic World Heritage UNESCO city of Guanajuato (México) famous for its subterranean streets, ancient churches, the Callejón del Beso (Alley of the Kiss), and owing its fame and fortune to rich veins of silver and gold discovered in the 18th century.

This edition continues a series of highly successful conferences that were organized in Colchester (UK), Athens (Greece), Ulm (Germany), Seattle (USA), Barcelona (Spain) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), and Nottingham (UK) in the past seven years. The conference provides a multidisciplinary collaborative forum for researchers and practitioners to present theoretical and practical results of Intelligent Environments work. 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
  • Urban Intelligence
  • Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing
  • Context Awareness
  • End-User Programming

Conference Program: The conference provides a multidisciplinary collaborative forum for researchers and practitioners from disciplines such as Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Building Architecture Art & Design, Sociology, Government and Education to present theoretical and practical results of Intelligent Environments.

Authors are invited to submit regular full papers as well as contributions to the Doctoral Colloquium, Posters Session or Demos & Videos Session. 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.

Awards: as in previous editions there will be a number of awards to reward quality and innovation. There will be prizes for Best Full Paper, Best Demo, Best Video and for the Intelligent Environments Application Challenge.

Workshops Program: A number of workshops will complement the main conference program. 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 the publications section.

Organising an IE12 Workshop: We invite people who would like to submit a proposal for organising an IE12 workshop to contact the programme chairs (pc at or download a Workshop-Proposal CFP from our website.
