By Pau Giner, Carlos Cetina, Joan Fons (auth.), Juan M. Corchado, Dante I. Tapia, José Bravo (eds.)

The Symposium on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence (UCAmI) begun as a workshop held in 2003 in San Sebastián (Spain) less than the Spanish man made Intelligence convention. This occasion accumulated 32 attendees and 18 papers have been offered. the second one version, already as a Symposium, happened in Granada (Spain) below the 1st Spanish desktop technological know-how convention (CEDI). Later, in 2006, a moment workshop used to be celebrated in Ciudad genuine and, in 2007; the second one Symposium used to be equipped in Zaragoza through the CEDI convention. Now we proceed to paintings at the association of this occasion in Salamanca, a stunning Spanish city.

The ecu neighborhood and the 6th and 7th Framework courses inspire researchers to discover the universal scope of the AmI imaginative and prescient. actually, a few researchers have an important position during this imaginative and prescient. Emile Aarts from Philips describes Ambient Intelligence as "the integration of expertise into the environment, in order that humans can freely and interactively make the most of it". this concept has the same opinion with the suggestion of Mark Weiser in regards to the Ubiquitous Computing paradigm.

The UCAmI group attempts to affix specialists worldwide as a way to advertise collaborations and to place into perform reviews for concerning humans into clever environments in order that the "Everyday Computing" thought could be a truth. The UCAmI technical application contains forty papers (31 lengthy paper, 6 brief paper and three doctoral consortium) chosen from a submission pool of fifty six papers, from eleven diversified countries.

1 S&D Solution Selection The S&D Solution Selection process describes a scenario where a running Serenityaware application needs the services provided by an S&D Solution. In this activity diagram shown in Figure 3, we present a swim line for each component of the SRF. There are two more swim lines, one for the Serenity-aware application and another for the S&D Solution. Looking from an abstract point of view, there are three independent systems running in this scenario: the SRF, the Serenity-aware application, and the ExecutableComponent.

It is understood that incorrectness, incompleteness, and uncertainty are present in the data/information/knowledge. The third module is related with the intelligent operation on the data/information/knowledge of our AmI environment. Here we include knowledge discovery systems, expert systems, planning, multi-agent systems, simulation, optimization, etc. The last module is related with the actuation in the AmI environment, by means of automation, robots, intelligent agents and users. Keywords: Ambient Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, Ubiquitous Computing, Context Awareness.

The first is related with the acquisition of data, information and even knowledge. This data/information/knowledge deals with our AmI environment and can be acquired in different ways (from raw sensors, from the web, from experts). The second module is related with the storage, conversion, and handling of the data/information/knowledge. It is understood that incorrectness, incompleteness, and uncertainty are present in the data/information/knowledge. The third module is related with the intelligent operation on the data/information/knowledge of our AmI environment.
