14th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE'18) 25-28 of June 2018, Rome - Italy


Intelligent Environments (IEs) 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. IEs have the ultimate objective of enriching user experience, better manage, and increase user awareness of that environment. The 14th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE'18) will be held in Rome, Italy, one of the most influential cities in the modern world, with a rich range of cultural offerings to visitors. The beginning of the conference will be preceded by a series of workshops on topics related to the main conference. The workshop program will be co-located and run in parallel with the tutorials programme.

The workshops at IE'18 will be a very useful tool in order to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest in the field of Intelligent Environments and related areas. Workshops that emphasize multi-disciplinary and transversal aspects, as well as cutting-edge topics, are especially encouraged and welcome.

Workshop Acceptance Rules: The decision on which proposed workshops get accepted will be carried-out through a two-stage process. Initially some of the workshops proposed will be short-listed, based on the quality of the proposal and the relevance of the topics covered. These workshops will later be confirmed at the Final Selection Stage (see section *Important Dates*) if they have successfully attracted a sufficient number of submissions and registrations. These workshops can last for a half day, a whole day or (in exceptional cases) for a one and a half days.

Submission of workshops proposals is ongoing with a final cut-off date the 1st December 2017. Proposals will be evaluated and short-listed individually upon receiving the proposal.

Financial Support: some degree of financial support will be given to the workshop organizers. That will be related to the success of the workshop.

Each workshop proposal should contain the following information: workshop title, a description of the specific scientific/technical scope of the workshop, a list of topics of interest, the reasons why the workshop should be held within IE'18, details of all the members of the Organizing Committee (OC), relevant experience of the organizers, identification of the member of the OC who is the contact person, the list of members of Workshop Program Committee, a preliminary version of the Call for Papers, the proposed structure of the workshop and planned forms of publicity.

Proceedings: all papers accepted in the Workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series by IOS Press, and made electronically available through ACM Digital Library. These Proceedings will be submitted for indexation by the Conference Proceedings Citation Index from Thomson Reuters (CPSI-S).
