The main focus of the 2022 UCAmI Conference will be “Ambient Intelligence: Sensing, Processing and Using Environmental Information“. Prof. Diego Lopez de Ipiña Gonzalez de Artaza from our partner Deusto will be the track chair for Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence for Ubiquitous Computing topic.
If you are working on these tracks, you can submit your paper by the 1st of July:
- AmI for Health and A3L (Ambient, Active and Assisted Living)
- Internet of Everything (IoT + People + Processes) and sensors
- Security, Privacy and trust for AmI
- Smart Environments
- Human-Computer Interaction for AmI
- Hybrid Human-Artificial Intelligence for Ubiquitous Computing

About Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence
The Ubiquitous Computing (UC) idea envisioned by Weiser in 1991, has recently evolved into a more general paradigm known as Ambient Intelligence (AmI) that represents a new generation of user-centered computing environments and systems. These solutions aim to find new ways to obtain a better integration of information technology in everyday life devices and activities.
AmI environments are integrated by several autonomous computational devices of modern life ranging from consumer electronics to mobile phones. Ideally, people in an AmI environment will not notice these devices, but they will benefit from the services these solutions provide them. Such devices are aware of the people present in those environments by reacting to their gestures, actions, and context.
Recently the interest in AmI environments has grown considerably due to new challenges posed by society, demanding highly innovative services, such as vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), Ambient
Assisted Living (AAL), e-Health, Internet of Things, and Home Automation among others.
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) presents methods to improve the quality of life of older persons using information and communication technologies (ICT). AAL promotes the provision of infrastructures and services for independent or more autonomous living through the seamless integration of information and communication technologies within homes and residences, thereby improving their quality of life and autonomy while reducing the need for institutionalisation or assisting it when it occurs.
Healthcare is a natural and vital human need where Ambient Intelligence may help. People’s quality of life can be improved by ubiquitous systems in this domain. While Ambient Intelligence in health applications is gaining popularity, it is still in its early stages of development.
