Scope

The design of Ambient Systems is a cross-disciplinary endeavour aimed at supporting and augmenting people’s activities in everyday life, by embedding computational and artificial intelligence in the distributed network of devices available in their living environment.

While technology needs to become more and more invisible to provide smart support, novel forms of user experience and multimodal interaction need to be devised to enable fluid, intuitive and appealing transitions between the physical and digital world.

This journal seeks contributions from leading experts and visionary thinkers in industry and research, about the principles, interaction paradigms, methods and applications that best can drive the future design of Ambient Systems and their human-centred, situated interfaces.
