Special Session on Digital Home Networks & Ambient Intelligence 
(DHN-AmI 2019)



CALL FOR PAPERS & PARTICIPATION


As part of
The 17th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2019)
July 15 – 19, 2019
Dublin, Ireland


Paper Submission Deadline: 20 April 2019

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters



SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

Recent years have witnessed rapid developments of the information communication technology and the Next-Generation Internet. 4G and 5G wireless mobile networks have been striding to a large-scale deployment and application. So, we have seen the potential and value for new technologies from a variety of digital networks to various interconnected digital devices, which made it possible to improve user’s digital experiences. 

Since its early development is late 1990s, Ambient Intelligence (AmI), describes new worlds, economies and paradigms that emphasize the centrality of human experience. The emerging versatile networks could enable a convenient connection “anytime, anywhere, anything, anyone” to the information communications network. Unfortunately, in such environment, privacy issues, some autonomous activities, infringement behaviors, unauthorized usage and access, unexpected role and scope of artificial reasoning, will also become a much more common phenomenon to address. Ordinary human reasoning and knowing what people actually want and need remain persistently elusive. Some applications research frontiers, related to digital home network, have emerged in recent years. These include subjects on digital home network models, architectures and mechanisms, secure digital multimedia broadcasting and controlled contents sharing. Researchers, contents industry engineers and administrators attempt to resort to the state-of-the-art technologies and ideas to protect valuable multimedia contents and services assets against attacks and IP piracy in the emerging triple play. 

This special session aims to bring together related research works in the realm of Digital Home Networks and Ambient Intelligence, and further investigates and discusses trusted solutions and secure techniques for Digital Home Networks and DRM, the integration of IoT based systems, as well as some open issues faced by digital contents owners/rights holders/multimedia services providers, who dedicate themselves to protect their Rights and business benefits. In addition, novel ideas and research works from end users and consumer electronics’ perspective, such as intelligence and reasoning levels, trust management and evaluations, 3D display and quality test methods, will be embraced by this special session. 

The DHN-AmI Session topics include (but are not limited to) the following

  • Environmental sensing and applications
  • Middleware for wireless sensor networks
  • Sensor fusion, tracking and positioning

Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. 

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the special session paper submission site at xxxx .  Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

Conference Policies
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, soundness and technical clarity, presentation, language, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2019 conference to present the paper at the special session as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages

Proceedings
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2019 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

SPECIAL ISSUE
Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website.
