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 in June 2022.

The 18th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE2022) will be held in Biarritz, France, from June 20th to June 23rd. The IE Conference is now 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. The conference welcomes contributions from all technically active regions of the planet.

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.

As in previous years, IE will host a dozen workshops and tutorials in the most current fields related to smart environments. Also, a special session, industrial forum, and demos  will be organized as usual by the IE community.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion and publishing by IEEE Xplore, subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. All papers accepted in the workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series of IOS Press and electronically available through ACM Digital Library. Both proceedings will be ISI indexed. A selection of papers will be invited to submit extended versions to indexed journals.

The IE conference is committed to providing an equitable and inclusive forum that supports freedom of thought, expression, and the open exchange of ideas. Every participant is welcomed at the conference that will provide a safe, respectful, and harassment-free environment. Interactions between attendees are expected to be respectful and constructive, including interactions during the review process, at the conference itself, and on social media. Any behavior inconsistent with such principles is expected to be reported directly at the general chairs.
