In an ambient intelligence world, devices work in concert to support people in carrying out everyday life activities and tasks in a natural way using information and intelligence that is hidden in the network connecting these devices. Ambient intelligence emphasizes people and user experience and ensuring ultimately that the technology disappears into our surroundings until only the user interface remains visible to users. The International Journal of Ambient Computing and Intelligence (IJACI) will specifically focus on the convergence of ubiquitous computing, context, intelligent systems, networking and security. Ubiquitous computing will focus on mobility, location and the development of various ad hoc networking capabilities that exploit numerous low-cost computing devices. Intelligent systems research will focus on learning algorithms and pattern matchers, speech recognition, gesture classification and situation assessment. Context awareness will concentrate on the tracking and positioning of objects' and people's interactions with their environments. Finally, an appreciation of human-centric computer interfaces, intelligent agents, network security, indoor positioning and the social interactions of objects in environments is essential.

  • Self-adaptive systems
  • Ubiquitous Computing
  • User-friendly multimodal spoken language dialogue systems
  • Virtual Reality

Mission and Scope

The primary objective of the International Journal of Ambient Computing and Intelligence (IJACI) is to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of cutting-edge research in fields as diverse as distributed computing, network security, human computer interaction, mobile and ubiquitous computing, location positioning systems, and other interdisciplinary areas which all contribute to ambient intelligence (AmI). The secondary objective of this journal is to broaden the overall body of knowledge regarding how the ambient intelligence paradigm builds upon ubiquitous computing and human-centric computer interaction design and is characterized by systems and technologies that are embedded, context-aware, personalized, adaptive, and anticipatory in the sense that they can anticipate desires without conscious mediation.

Reviews and Testimonials

This journal will play a crucial role in the refreshing research arena that is ambient intelligence. This journal will no doubt prove to be the primary outlet for researchers in the field to publicize their work. It is also nice to see it will cover the analysis, design, implementation, and evaluation of ambient computing systems and environments.
