Aims & Scope
The Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments (JAISE) serves as a forum to discuss the latest developments on Ambient Intelligence (AmI) and Smart Environments (SmE). Given the multi-disciplinary nature of the areas involved, the journal aims to promote participation from several different communities covering topics ranging from enabling technologies such as multi-modal sensing and vision processing, to algorithmic aspects in interpretive and reasoning domains, to application-oriented efforts in human-centered services, as well as contributions from the fields of robotics, networking, HCI, mobile, collaborative and pervasive computing. This diversity stems from the fact that smart environments can be defined with a variety of different characteristics based on the applications they serve, their interaction models with humans, the practical system design aspects, as well as the multi-faceted conceptual and algorithmic considerations that would enable them to operate seamlessly and unobtrusively. The Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments will focus on both the technical and application aspects of these.
The broad areas represented in the journal given the multi-disciplinary nature of the field and applications include:
- Sensors, vision, and networks
- Mobile and pervasive computing
- Human-centered interfaces
- Artificial Intelligence
- Societal applications and implications
- Internet of Things
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Scene and event modeling, representation, and reconstruction
- Applications in health care: assisted living, fall detection, elderly care, patient monitoring, patient rehabilitation, brain-computer interfaces
- Applications in smart homes: home safety, energy efficiency, entertainment, ambience, multimedia
- Applications in smart buildings, smart classrooms, smart cars, in safety, energy efficiency, services

- Sensor data fusion and collaboration in multi-sensor systems and networks
- Mobile/wearable intelligence
- Self-adaptive AmI systems
- Context awareness
- Cognitive and emotional awareness
- Handling preferences of the individual users and user groups
- Mediating conflicting interests
- Behavior modeling
- Intention recognition
- Agent-based approaches to AmI
- Robotics applied to smart environments
- Distributed and collaborative computing and reasoning
- Distributed video surveillance
- Intuitive user interface design, unobtrusiveness, ease of setup, ergonomics
- Human interaction with autonomous systems
- Non-restrictive HCI
- Assistive technologies, interfaces for special groups
- Educational interfaces
- Multimodal interfaces
- Human action and gesture interpretation
- Social issues of applications of AmI/SmE
- Legal Issues in AmI
- Intelligent handling of privacy, security and trust
- Technology adoption issues and implications
JAISE welcomes submissions of scientific papers, which will be peer-reviewed. These articles should be prepared following the journal's official format and submitted through the official online submission system. Scientific research papers make up the core of the issues of JAISE.
JAISE also considers less technical and shorter articles for inclusion, which can be useful for the scientific community:
(a) Short articles reporting on PhD theses recently defended in the technical areas relevant to the journal. Articles in this category are typically expected to be one page long and will contain information like the abstract of the thesis, details of the viva (date, place, members of the examination board) and a photo of the event. This article can be written by the student or by one of the supervisors.
(b) Opinion articles and letters which can help our community to reflect, discuss or encourage debate and joint work in certain areas.
Articles in any of these two categories should also be prepared following the journal's official format, but should not be submitted through the official submissions webpage, but sent directly to either of the co-Editors-in-Chief. These types of papers will not be peer-reviewed. The co-Editors-in-Chief will decide on the inclusion of these articles.

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPT
For initial submission a .pdf file of the article is sufficient. After an article has been accepted for publication an editable file of the text, such as MsWord or LateX, is required. If you are uploading a paper that has been accepted for publication or accepted pending minor revisions please upload the source files of the paper. If using LaTeX or Word, please use our LaTeX template or Word template. If using LaTeX, also send a PDF version of the LaTeX file as well as separate files of all figures (if any).
Authors are requested to submit their paper through the journal's online submission system.
An Author Order Form will be provided along with the PDF proof.
The Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments does not charge a publication fee.
Please note that changing the authors list (i.e. adding / removing authors, or changing the order) is not allowed after submission of the manuscript (except through permission by the Editors-in-Chief).
PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS
Organization of the paper and style of presentation Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are recommended to seek the advice of a native English speaker, if possible, before submitting their manuscripts. You can also visit Peerwith. Peerwith offers a language and copyediting service to all scientists who want to publish their manuscript in scientific peer-reviewed periodicals and books. Manuscripts should be prepared with wide margins and double spacing throughout, including the abstract, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc., should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face. Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:
- Title page including Abtract and Keywords
- Body of text (divided by subheadings)
- Figure captions
Headings and subheadings should be numbered and typed on a separate line, without indentation. SI units should be used, i.e., the units based on the metre, kilogramme, second, etc. Sentence case should be used throughout the manuscript.
- Title (should be clear, descriptive and concise).
- Full name(s) of author(s).
- Full affiliation(s). Delineate affiliations with lowercase letters. Present address of author(s), if different from affiliation. Running title (45 characters or less, including spaces). Complete address of corresponding author, including telephone number and email address Leave the author information blank if double-blind peer review is wished for, but do include the information in the cover letter.
This journal publishes all its articles in the IOS Press Pre-Press module. By publishing articles ahead of print the latest research can be accessed much quicker. The pre-press articles are the corrected proof versions of the article and are published online shortly after the proof is created and author corrections implemented. Pre-press articles are fully citable by using the DOI number. As soon as the pre-press article is assigned to an issue, the final bibliographic information will be added. The pre-press version will then be replaced by the updated, final version.
Authors of published articles (non-prepress, final articles) will be contacted by Kudos. Kudos is a service that helps researchers maximize the impact and visibility of their research. It allows authors to enrich their articles with lay metadata, add links to related materials and promote their articles through the Kudos system to a wider public. Authors will receive no more than three emails: one invitation and a maximum of two reminders to register for the service and link the published article to their profile. Using and registering for Kudos remains entirely optional. For more information, please have a look at our authors section.
