About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence, UCAmI 2013, held in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, in December 2013.
The 46 research papers presented together with 8 papers of the workshop UrbAI 2013 were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers are grouped in topical sections on human interaction in ambient intelligence, ICT instrumentation and middleware support for smart environments and objects, adding intelligence for environment adaption, and key application domains for ambient intelligence.
