Introduction

The IE 2022 committee is closely monitoring the situation with respect to health safety and travel. We will adapt the conference according to the latest pandemic evolution and recommendations. IE will take the form of a hybrid event, or totally virtual depending on the health situation in June 2022.

The 18th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE2022) will be held in Biarritz, France, from June 20th to June 23rd. The IE Conference is now recognized as a major annual venue in the area. It has been hosted all around the world and offers a truly international forum that encourages rich exchanges. The conference welcomes contributions from all technically active regions of the planet.

Intelligent environments refer to physical spaces in which information and communication technologies are woven with sensing/acting technologies in order to create interacting spaces enhancing occupants’ experience. The ultimate objective of such environments is to provide services to occupants, enrich their activities but also to develop their awareness.

As in previous years, IE will host a dozen workshops and tutorials in the most current fields related to smart environments. Also, special sessions, industrial forum, demos and doctoral colloquium will be organized as usual by the IE community.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion and publishing by IEEE Xplore, subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. All papers accepted in the workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series of IOS Press and electronically available through ACM Digital Library. Both proceedings will be ISI indexed. A selection of papers will be invited to submit extended versions to indexed journals.

The IE conference is committed to providing an equitable and inclusive forum that supports freedom of thought, expression, and the open exchange of ideas. Every participant is welcomed at the conference that will provide a safe, respectful, and harassment-free environment. Interactions between attendees are expected to be respectful and constructive, including interactions during the review process, at the conference itself, and on social media. Any behavior inconsistent with such principles is expected to be reported directly at the general chairs

Call for paper

Intelligent environments refer to physical spaces in which information and communication technologies are woven with sensing/acting technologies in order to create interacting spaces enhancing occupants’ experience. The ultimate objective of such environments is to provide services to occupants, enrich their activities but also to develop their awareness.

Submission Topics

Contributions in the following areas are solicited (but not limited to):

  • Advances in theories for the design, implementation, integration and evaluation of smart spaces,

  • Novel architectures and middleware for the integration of devices, edges, and clouds

  • Software facilities to develop, deploy, monitor, update applications for smart spaces,

  • Interaction techniques using voice, gesture, eyes, etc. in smart spaces,

  • Robotic technologies in smart spaces to assist human or to manage resources,

  • Planning solutions to better use limited resources in smart spaces,

  • Machine learning techniques for novel applications, including federated learning, few shot learning, etc.

  • Solutions to deal with transversal properties including security,
    privacy, availability, transparency, or explainability in smart spaces.

  • Novel applications in smart homes, smart building, smart cities, smart plants and smart grid

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE
Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.

Guidlines

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. The Intelligent Environments conference is currently indexed by both EI Compendex and Thomson’s Web of Science (Thomson ISI).

All papers accepted in the Workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series of IOS Press and electronically available through ACM Digital Library. Both proceedings will be ISI indexed.

As in previous years, a selection of papers will be invited to submit extended versions to important journals.

For this edition, to increase high quality papers and independent merit, the evaluation process is double blind. Hence, all papers should be anonymous for any of the categories below. This constraint does *not* apply to DEMOS & VIDEOS papers. 

    • FULL papers should be up to 8 pages (references and appendix included)

    • SPECIAL SESSIONS papers should be up to 8 pages (references and appendix included)

    • SHORT papers should be up to 4 pages (references and appendix included)

    • DEMOS & VIDEOS papers (single-blind) should be up to 4 pages (references and appendix included)

    • DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM papers should be up to 4 pages (references and appendix included)

All papers should be submitted as PDF on EasyChair : https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ie2022 by selecting the appropriate category. They should be formatted according to the IEEE Template for Conference  Proceedings.

Important Note for Double blind review policy: The papers submitted for review must not contain the authors’ names, affiliations, grants, funding institution or any explicit information, that may disclose the authors’ identity (this information is to be restored in the camera-ready version upon acceptance).
Please remove author names and affiliations (or replace it with Xs) on submitted papers. In particular, in the version submitted for review please avoid explicit auto-references, such as “as we showed in [1]” — consider “as showed in [1]“. I.e., you may cite your own previous works provided that it is not deducible from the text that the cited work belongs to the authors.
