Call for papers

Intelligent Environments (IE) refer to physical spaces in which IT and other pervasive computing technology are woven and used to achieve specific goals for the user, the environment or both. IEs have the ultimate objective of enriching user experience, better manage, and increase user awareness of that environment. The 15th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’19) will be held at the city of Rabat, the capital and one of the imperial cities of Morocco.

Conference Program

The conference provides a multidisciplinary collaborative forum for researchers and practitioners from Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Building Architecture, Art & Design, Sociology, Government and Education to present theoretical and practical results related to the development and applications of Intelligent Environments. The event will include regular full/short papers as well as a Doctoral Colloquium, a Posters Session and Demos & Videos Session.

Workshops Program

As in previous editions, a number of workshops will complement the main conference program. Papers accepted in any of the workshops sponsored by this conference will be included in one Proceedings volume that will collect the contributions in all workshops. See Workshops for more details.


All papers accepted in the main conference will be published in an indexed proceedings (currently in negotiation with IEEE, as in previous editions). All papers accepted in the Workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series (CPCI indexed) of IOS Press and electronically available through ACM Digital Library.

Industrial Forum

This will be a networking event and an opportunity for the business sector to showcase their innovation.

Tutorials Programme

For this edition we will include a number of tutorials by well-known colleagues on important topics:

  • The Automation of Everything era, by H. Khyati
  • Wireless Communications with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs): from Wi-Fi to 5G, by E. Vinogradov & S. Pollin
  • Design and Analysis of IoT Communication Systems, by F. Falcone
