About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second European Conference on Ambient Intelligence, AmI 2008, held in Nuremberg, Germany, in November 2008.

The 22 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions for inclusion in the book. The papers are roughly classified into two groups on well-being and care, and mobility and logistics respectively; they are organized in topical sections on service-oriented smart and comfortable homes for better recreation and leisure time, intelligent and cooperative domestic devices for smart home and shopping environments, navigation and guidance in unknown environments and unusual situations, context-oriented health monitoring and alerting systems for a carefree life.
