Trends and Advances for Ambient Intelligence with Internet of Things Systems

Submission Deadline: 1 February 2017

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Trends and Advances for Ambient Intelligence with Internet of Things (IoT) Systems.

We’re currently shifting from the Information Age to the Intelligence Age. The Intelligence Age will be characterized by autonomous communication between intelligent devices that are sensitive to a person’s presence and respond by performing a specific task that enhances that person’s lifestyle. In this perspective, the Internet of Things envisages a plethora of heterogeneous objects interacting with people and the physical environment. Things are able to sense a user’s presence, movement and behavior, analyse that data in order to learn about that user, and then make an intelligent decision to perform a task based on the data. IoT is an exciting research area, particularly when it comes to human computer interaction because the number of real use cases as well as the devices and systems which the user has to interact with is constantly growing.
Ambient Intelligence with IoT systems is an emerging research area and there is generally a deficiency to understand the suitable approaches to support this field. The success of IoT systems depends on the efficient integration of its devices, sensors and data management techniques.

This Special Section in IEEE Access will bring together researchers from diverse fields and specializations, such as communications engineering, computer science, electrical and electronics engineering, educators, mathematicians and specialists in areas related to Ambient Intelligence and Internet of Things.

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

  • IoT platforms for Big Data and Data analytics in Smart Cities;
  • IoT on e-Health/m-Health and Ambient Assisted Living
  • Environmental intelligent sensing and computing;
  • Personalized and Intelligent services in IoT systems;
  • Ambient-oriented technologies;
  • Ambient context modelling and reasoning;
  • Smart environments and related applications;
  • Data Classification and management on IoT environments;
