Background and Goals: Imagine a future where human environments respond to human preferences and needs. In this world, devices equipped with simple intelligence and the abilities to sense, communicate, and act will be unremarkable features of our world. We will expect the car to warn us of hazards, track our location and provide timely route advice. We will speak to simple machines and hold conversations with more complex systems, such as intelligent homes that will help us monitor conditions, track routine tasks, and program the behaviour of the heat, the lights, the garden watering and the entertainment centre. Analogous systems at work will make simple decisions in our stead ranging from scheduling meetings to negotiating for common services over the web. Such systems will also acquire, and adapt to our preferences over time. In sum, we will come to view simple software intelligence as an ambient feature of our environment. The infrastructure for ambient intelligence is fast coming on line. Computational resources are cheap and becoming cheaper, while ubiquitous network access has started to appear. Market forces will soon produce applications. We take the view that ambient intelligence is imminent and inevitable, and that the time is ripe to take stock. This workshop will provide that opportunity by gathering researchers in a variety of AI subfields together with representatives of commercial interests to explore the technology and applications for ambient intelligence.

Areas of Interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
This workshop will complement previous events, such as the International Conference on Smart Homes and Telecare, the AAAI 2005 Spring Symposium Workshop on Persistent Assistants and the European Symposium on Ambient Intelligence. This workshop differs from other events in the area in that it will focus on the special relevance of AI technology to the goals of Ambient Intelligence, and on the most likely avenues for practical application. AITAmI'07 will provide an open forum based on a variety of presentations: research papers, keynotes, panels and industrial demos. This event will provide a continuation to AITAmI'06 held during ECAI'06.
General Structure of the Event: The core of the event will be the presentation of recent advances in research and applications and debates around different topics of interest. The event will have invited keynote lectures and sessions where papers and posters will be presented to report on the latest theoretical developments and applications. Presentations can also contain demos about tools and their applications. A panel will focus on various topics of interest at both academic and professional level. Interaction will be encouraged throughout the event.
Invited Speakers: we have the pleasure to announce that the following speakers will be giving a keynote lecture at AITAmI'07:
Program: other 16 contributions to the field will be presented during the workshop in the modality of full oral presentation or poster. More details will be given here before the event takes place.
Publications: all papers accepted will be published in the proceedings of the event.
Logistics: It is convenient that if the presentation requires any equipment different from the standard laptop and data projector the authors of the paper communicate this to the workshop chairs as soon as possible.
Attendance: at least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop to present the paper.
Those wishing to attend the workshop without presenting a paper are invited to send to jc.augusto 'at' ulster.ac.uk a brief statement of interest and a description of their background and motivations in this area. We cannot guarantee a place in the event for those not sending this request for participation.
Registration: to register for this event please go to the IJCAI registration page.
A few grants to waive registration fees will be given to Ph.D. students with papers accepted for the workshop. More details on this after the papers have been selected.
