The Symposium on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence (UCAmI) started as a workshop held in 2003 in San Sebastián (Spain) below the Spanish man made Intelligence convention. This occasion collected 32 attendees and 18 papers have been offered. the second one version, already as a Symposium, came about in Granada (Spain) less than the 1st Spanish laptop technological know-how convention (CEDI).

The eu neighborhood and the 6th and 7th Framework courses inspire researchers to discover the regular scope of the AmI imaginative and prescient. in truth, a few researchers have a vital function during this imaginative and prescient. Emile Aarts from Philips describes Ambient Intelligence as "the integration of know-how into our surroundings, in order that humans can freely and interactively make the most of it". this concept has the same opinion with the notion of Mark Weiser in regards to the Ubiquitous Computing paradigm.
The UCAmI group attempts to hitch specialists all over the world so that it will advertise collaborations and to place into perform reports for related to humans into clever environments in order that the "Everyday Computing" inspiration could be a truth. The UCAmI technical software comprises forty papers (31 lengthy paper, 6 brief paper and three doctoral consortium) chosen from a submission pool of fifty six papers, from eleven assorted countries.
