STAMI workshops in principle remain open-ended with respect to the broader vision of the series. We welcome innovative, refreshing perspectives from all quarters. If in doubt, please establish contact with the workshop co-chairs. The following non-exhaustive list of topics remains a core fous:

Space, Action and Change

Basic research questions relevant to the formal modelling of, and reasoning about, space, actions and change, spatio-temporal dynamics, commonsense reasoning about spatio-tempora change may be addressed.
  • Qualitative Modelling, Reasoning
  • Dynamic Spatial Systems
  • Reasoning about Space, Actions
    and Change
  • Spatio-Temporal Abduction
  • Spatio-Temporal Continuity
  • Qualitative Abstractions of
    Motion Patterns
  • Spatio-Temporal Groundings for Patterns
  • Spatio-Temporal Data-Mining
    • Sensor Stream Analyses.
    • Event Extraction / Individuation
    • Sensor Data Fusion
    • Stream Annotation, Pattern Mining
  • Commonsense Inference about Space and Change
  • Non-Monotonic Reasoning, Spatio-Temporal Belief Revision

Spatio-Temporal Context

  • Scene Description Ontologies
  • Situational Context Modelling
  • Ontological Modelling of Context
  • Models of Indoor Enviornments
  • Language-based descriptions of Indoor Spaces

Activity, Behaviour, Interaction Interpretation

  • Activity and Process Models
  • High-level Activity Analyses
  • Modelling of Moving Objects
  • Abnormality Detection
  • Posture, Gesture Analysis
These basic research questions pertaining to the ubiquity of Space, Actions and Change in the range of sub-disciplines, applications, and systems within the purview of Ambient Intelligence remain a central focus of the STAMI.

Applications Domains, Frameworks

Fundamental research papers may potentially address scenarios / use-cases from specific application areas of interest. From an application perspective, STAMI is centered on the thematic aspects connected to the formal modelling of Space and Interaction within practical systems for pervasive and ubiquitous computing, and Spatial Assistance Systems in general.

  • Location-based Services
  • Analytical and Simulation Platforms
  • Spatial Data Access Frameworks
  • Spatial Data Management Frameworks
  • Interfaces for Ambient Intelligent Systems
  • Ambient Assisted Living (AAL)
  • Smart / Intelligent Environments
