Serious Games As Intelligent Environments: IE10 Final CFP

Serious Games Linking Immersive Virtual Environments to Physical Spaces

Via: IE’10 Intelligent Environments Conferences 


Intelligent Environments are everyday settings such as homes, offices, hotels, restaurants, shops, hospitals, teaching-rooms, stage/studios, manufacturing environments, cars, trains, aircraft, boats, cities, public spaces and electronic clothing/fashion that are equipped with advanced networked computer based systems, which enable better or new lifestyles for people.

For example, such technology can lead to design of living environments that are more comfortable, usable, productive, secure, caring, social, entertaining or energy efficient.

Each year, the International Conference on Intelligent Environments provides a leading edge forum for scientists, researchers and engineers from industry and academia to present theoretical and practical research results on Intelligent Environments, their multiple aspects and their application in various domains of activity.

IE'10 is the sixth edition in a series of highly successful conferences that were organized in Colchester (UK), Athens (Greece), Ulm (Germany), Seattle (USA) and Barcelona (Spain) in the past five years; in 2010, the IE conference will take place in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) hosted by the Monash University.

The IE’10 conference program will include workshops, invited lectures and special sessions of full and short papers and posters. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) Ambient Intelligence, Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing, Intelligent Agents, Context Awareness, End-User Programming, Human-Computer Interaction (Speech, Vision and Haptics), Smart Sensors, Affective Systems, Wearables (smart clothes, digital fashion etc), Domestic Robotics, Virtual & Mixed-Reality, Middleware, Networking, Communications, Development/ Testing/Evaluation Methodologies, Building Architecture, Art and Design, Cultural, Social, Legal and Ethical Aspects of Intelligent Environments. Other issues of interest include novel computational models and new theories that support advances in these areas.

David Wortley, The Serious Games Institute Director, is co-chairing the 1st International Workshop on "SHASPA Intelligent Shared Spaces – Linking Immersive Virtual Environments to Physical Spaces" at the Intelligent Environments Conference.
