Detailed Call
The International Workshop on Space, Time, and Ambient Intelligence (STAMI 2013) will be co-located with the Twenty-Seventh AAAI Conference (AAAI-13),  Bellevue, Washington USA. July 14–18, 2013. 

A wide-range of applications within the purview of ambient intelligence, smart environments, cognitive assistance systems, and pervasive and ubiquitous computing require the ability to represent and reason about dynamic spatial phenomena. Systems concerned with observing, interpreting, and interacting in an environment populated by humans and artefacts require a formal means for representing and reasoning with spatio-temporal, event, and action driven phenomena that occur in the environment. The Space, Time, and Ambient Intelligence workshop addresses basic research questions concerned with operationalising "commonsense situational awareness" for assistive technologies within the purview of ambient intelligence and smart environments. Commonsense situational awareness in this context is interpreted as "the perception of elements within the volume of time and space, the comprehension of their meaning, the explanation of their present (observed) status, and the ability to project the same in the near future."

This workshop has a special focus on the topic of "spatio-temporal aspects of human activity interpretation." We especially welcome research concerned with monitoring and interpretation of people interactions, real-time commonsense situational awareness involving aspects such as scene perception and understanding, perceptual data analytics, and prediction and explanation-driven high-level control of autonomous systems. In this context, basic topics deemed important include activity and process models, behavior and intention interpretation, spatial learning, modelling and reasoning about space, events, actions, interaction, spatio-temporal dynamics, and commonsense reasoning about spatio-temporal change.
