About the book

"Ambient Intelligence" aims to collect the most significant contributions related to sensitive and responsive ambient intelligent applications in the environmental field with a high degree of innovation, especially about the intelligence component.
The applications are those related to intelligent monitoring activities such as the quality assessment of the environmental matrices through the use of innovative approaches, case studies, best practices with bottom-up approaches, machine learning techniques, systems development (for example algorithms, sensors, etc.) to predict alterations of environmental matrices. The goal is also to be able to protect natural resources by making their use increasingly sustainable.

Contributions related to the development of prototypes and software with an open-source component are very welcome.

This book is intended to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state of the art in the field of Ambient Intelligence. A format rich in figures, tables, diagrams, and graphical abstracts is strongly encouraged.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
