*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 heater, lights,
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.

This workshop will provide the opportunity to understand latest
developments and take action to shape the future of the area by gathering
researchers in a variety of AI subfields together with representatives of
commercial interests to explore the technology and applications for ambient

The 7th edition of AITAmI will focus on the understanding of Context and
Situations as key concepts which support accurate diagnosis and reasoning
for the decision making processes that sustain Ambient Intelligence

This event will build up on the topics discussed during the previous
successful editions: *AITAmI’06* held during ECAI’06 *AITAmI’07   *held
  during   IJCAI’07,   *AITAmI’08 * held  during ECAI’08, *AITAmI’09* held
during IE’09, *AITAmI’10* held during IE’10, and *AITAmI’11* held during

*Areas of interest:* include, but are not limited to, the following:

   - Context Awareness
   - Activity recognition
   - Individual/Group emotional status
   - Individual/Group preferences
   - Mediating conflicting interests
   - Non invasive sensing and interaction
   - Cognitive modelling of users
   - Modelling complex environments (Smart homes, smart cars, hospitals,
   museums, transportation, classrooms, open spaces, etc.)
   - Intelligent interactive systems
   - Multi-modal interfaces (voice, image and video, bio-signals,
   handwriting, etc.

as well as...

   - Agent-based approaches to AmI
   - Applications (Health, industry, teaching, supporting group
   collaboration, etc.)
   - Responsive/active architecture
   - Innovative applications of AI to Ambient Intelligence
   - Traditional relevant areas of AI (KR, reasoning about actions,
   spatio-temporal reasoning, CBR, planning, uncertainty, learning, belief
   revision, vision, decision-making, etc.)
