The 4th IET International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE 08)
21 - 22 July, 2008
University of Washington, Seattle, USA

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the 4th IET International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE 08), which will be held at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA from July 21 to July 22, 2008. As the fourth in a successful series, this conference will provide a leading edge forum for researchers and engineers from across the world to present their latest research and to discuss future directions in the area of Intelligent Environments.

The conference aims at contributing to the realization of the Ambient Intelligence vision, where physical space becomes augmented with computation, communication and digital content, thus transcending the limits of direct human perception.

Types of Intelligent Environments range from private to public and from fixed to mobile; some are ephemeral while others are permanent; some change type during their life span. The realisation of Intelligent Environments requires the convergence of different prominent disciplines: Information and Computer Science, Architecture, Material Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Sociology and Design. In addition, technical breakthroughs are required in key enabling technology fields, such as, microelectronics (e.g., miniaturisation, power consumption), communication and networking technologies (e.g., broadband and wireless networks), smart materials (e.g., bio-implants) and intelligent agents (e.g., context awareness and ontologies).

The conference will provide a forum for the presentation of research and applications and for lively discussions among researchers as well as industrialists contributing to the area on Intelligent Environments.

The conference is supported by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the IEEE and the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society. The conference proceedings will be published by The IET.

We look forward to welcome you to IE 08!
