The IEE International Workshop on Intelligent Environments

University of Essex, Colchester, UK, 28-29 June 2005



Intelligent Environments are becoming one of the hot topics for
industrial and academic research. Intelligent Environments are public
and private spaces such as cars, shopping malls, work, homes and even
our own bodies which respond "thoughtfully" to our needs. Such
environments are constituted by numerous networked embedded computing
appliances offering functionalities related to the individual
appliances in addition to the range of collective functionalities
offered through communities of coordinating appliances. Commonly such
spaces would contain embedded intelligent agents enabling these
environments to personalise themselves in response to the occupant's
presence and behaviour as well as aiding the normal activities related
to work, education, entertainment or healthcare. Over the last decade
a number of research areas have contributed to the concept of
intelligent environments, such areas include ubiquitous computing,
pervasive computing, embedded intelligence, intelligent user
interfaces, human factors, intelligent buildings, mobile
communications, domestic robots, intelligent sensors and ambient

The international workshop on Intelligent Environments will be held at
the University of Essex, Colchester, UK on the 28th and 29th of June
2005. The workshop will provide a leading edge forum for researchers
and engineers from across the world to present their latest research
and to discuss future directions in this area. The workshop aims to
bring together researchers from both industry and academia from the
various disciplines contributing to the area on Intelligent
Environments which will help to stimulate research and break down
barriers between the different disciplines in both industry and

The first day of the workshop will feature keynote presentations from
prominent international researchers, from both industry and academia,
speaking on a range of disciplines in the Intelligent Environments

The second day will feature parallel sessions to present the peer
reviewed papers, the papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings to be produced by the IEE. At the end of the second day,
we will organise a Doctoral colloquium for PhD students.

The workshop will have an exhibit area within the workshop foyer which
will be available for industrial companies and research projects

By the end of the first day, we plan to have the formal opening of the
Essex Intelligent Flat (iFlat) which is unique purpose-built test-bed
for intelligent environments and pervasive computing experimental
work. Delegates will be able to visit the iFlat and thereby take away
useful practical knowledge on its potential uses for research together
with information as to how they might use this facility.


The workshop will aim to bring together researchers working in
disciplines from a broad spectrum of the Intelligent Environments
area. Such disciplines include, but are not limited to:

- Intelligence - including learning algorithms, user profiling,
personalisation and adaptivity, autonomous intelligence, agent
technologies and multi-agents
- Pervasive networking - including wired, wireless and ad-hoc
networking, discovery mechanisms, software architectures, system
integration, prototyping and portable devices
- Ubiquitous and pervasive computing
- Ambient Intelligence
- Human and Social Factors - including security and privacy issues
relating to intelligent environments
- Human Computer Interfaces
- End-User programming
- Mobile Communications
- Smart devices and smart spaces
- Middleware
- Mobile/wireless computing systems and services
- Context based and implicit computing
- Location based services
- Natural user-system interaction - including ambient interfaces,
multimodal interaction, innovative interaction styles and concepts and
human friendly user interfaces
- Domestic and Rehabilitation Robotic systems
- Resource management in pervasive computing platforms
- Smart sensors and actuators
- Applications to homes, work, education, entertainment, healthcare,
- Building Technology and Automation
- Virtual Environments
- Art and Design
- Embedded-Internet
- Knowledge Representation
