18th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE2022), 20-23 June 2022, Biarritz, France
** Important Dates **
   Conference paper submission:         1 December 2021
   Communication of results:           15 February 2022
   Camera ready:                       28 March 2022
The 18th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE2022) will be held in 2022 in Biarritz, France, from June 20th to June 23rd. The IE Conference is recognized as a major annual venue in the area. It has been hosted all around the world and offers a truly international forum that encourages rich exchanges. Intelligent environments refer to physical spaces in which information and communication technologies are woven with sensing/acting technologies in order to create interacting spaces enhancing occupants' experience. The ultimate objective of such environments is to provide services to occupants, enrich their activities but also to develop their awareness.
** Conference Program **
IE is a multidisciplinary event welcoming contribution from a diversity of relevant areas including sensing, networking, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, software engineering, context-awareness, the internet of things, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, etc. The event will include regular full/short papers, a Doctoral Colloquium, a Posters Session and Demos Session as well as an Industrial Forum. Special Sessions will focus on specific topics (details further down).
** COVID-19 information **
The IE 2022 committee is closely monitoring the situation with respect to health safety and travel. We will adapt the conference according to the latest pandemic evolution and recommendations. IE will take the form of a hybrid event, or totally virtual depending on the health situation in June 2022.
** Paper categories **
    FULL papers should be up to 8 pages in total (see
    SPECIAL SESSIONS papers should be up to 8 pages in total  (see
    SHORT papers should be up to 4 pages in total (see
    DEMOS & VIDEOS papers should be up to 4 pages in total (see
    DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM papers should be up to 4 pages in total (see
    All accepted papers of all categories will be published in the IEEE proceedings of the conference and submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. 
** Submission **
For this edition, to increase high quality papers and independent merit, the evaluation process is *double blind*. Hence, all papers should be anonymous for any of the categories below. This constraint does *not* apply to DEMOS & VIDEOS papers.
All papers should be submitted as PDF on EasyChair : by selecting the appropriate category. 
They should be formatted according to the IEEE Template for Conference Proceedings,
** Special Sessions **
The following special sessions proposed by members from our scientific community have been accepted:
- "Smart Cities" by Juan Carlos Augusto, Middlesex University, London, UK
- "Human Mobility Analysis in Heterogeneous Urban Environments" by Fernando Terroso Sáenz and Manuel Curado Navarro, Universidad Católica de Murcia (UCAM), Spain
- "Ethics & Privacy Preservation in Data Analytics and Smart Environments" by Antonio Balderas-Alberico, Juan Manuel Dodero, Manuel Palomo Duarte, and Mercedes Rodriguez-Garcia, University of Cadiz, Spain
- "Post-covid Intelligent Environments" by Sherif Aly (The American University in Cairo, Egypt), Takuya Yoshihiro (Wakayama University, Japan), Ahmed Elmogy (Prince Sattam Bin Abdelaziz University, Saudi Arabia), and Hamada Rizk (Osaka University, Japan & Tanta University, Egypt)
** Short Papers **
Short Papers provide an opportunity to report on early results, position statements, and complementary resources created. Accepted submissions will be included in the conference proceedings and will be presented during an exclusively dedicated Posters Session of the conference.
** Demos & Videos **
The demo and video track provides a unique opportunity to showcase research prototypes, novel ideas or future visions of Intelligent Environment that are difficult to convey in a paper-only format. Demos allow conference participants to view and try out novel and noteworthy systems and components of Intelligent Environments in action, and discuss the systems with those who created them. Appropriate demos include applications, technologies, and research prototypes. Accepted demos will be showcased during the conference.
** Doctoral Colloquium Papers **
Doctoral colloquium papers should focus on research projects (PhD or similar) which are either (a) in a relatively early stage, but where the investigating student has already identified the nature and key aspects of the problem(s), and has ideas regarding how to solve them, or (b) is at a stage where interesting results are being produced, but the work is not yet sufficient  to produce a long paper. 
** Keynote Speakers **
The conference will include keynote lectures of the following distinguished speakers:
·       Prof. Jiannong Cao, Chair Professor of Distributed and Mobile Computing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong
·       Prof. Christine Julien, Annis & Jack Bowen Professor in Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin, U.S.A
·       Dr. Maria-Antonietta Grasso, Principal Scientist UX and Ethnography, Naverlabs, France
** Awards **
As previous editions, several awards will be programmed to recognize authors outstanding scientific contributions to the area of intelligent environments. The awards are the following. 
- Beatrice WORSLEY award for the best full paper 
- Best Poster award 
- Best Doctoral Colloquium award 
- Best Demos&Video award 
- Best Presentation awards  for a full paper presentation 
** by a female presenter 
** by a male presenter
This twin presentation award has been set up to encourage equal visibility of female and male researchers. The awards will be allocated to the whole co-authors of the presented paper. The attribution will be decided by a jury of people of equally balanced gender. 
** Workshops & Tutorial & Industry Forum **
The conference will feature 10 workshops and 7 tutorials on all aspects of intelligent environments. Check the workshop and tutorial web pages (
Furthermore, as each year, the conference will offer an Industrial Forum which will be a networking event and an opportunity for the business sector to showcase their innovation. Companies interested by the industrial forum can contact the industrial forum chairs directly.
