Traditional notions of Human-Computer Interaction involve explicit interaction with users through input devices such as the keyboards or touchscreens and output devices, such as computer displays or printers, that display information to users.

Now, with the advent of
ambient intelligence
(AmI) interactions may also happen implicitly via sensors embedded in the environment that serve to mediate or articulate interaction using responsive technology.

This theme issue aims to bring together emerging research and developments in AmI, including ubiquitous sensing, user and behavioural modelling and the recognition of human behaviour.


Topics include, but are not limited to:
Human-ambient interaction
Novel input devices
Ubiquitous and ambient displays
Use of wearable devices and environmental sensors for context data gathering
Adaptive interfaces for AmI environments
Use of context and location information in user interfaces
Adaptive interfaces for Ambient Assisted Living
Big data analytics from context information
Persuasive interfaces and user empowerment
User modelling in AmI environments
User-centered methodologies and strategies for AmI development
Modelling user engagement in AmI


Submissions should be original papers and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Extended versions of papers from relevant conferences and workshops are invited as long as the additional contribution is substantial (at least 30% new content).
