EUSAI 2004, the second European Symposium on Ambient Intelligence, was held on November 8 - 10 2004 at Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. EUSAI 2004 followed a successful first event in 2003, organized by Philips Research. EUSAI turned out to be a timely initiative that created a forum for bringing together European researchers, working on different disciplines all contributing towards the human-centric technological vision of Ambient Intelligence.
Compared to conferences working on similar and overlapping fields, the first EUSAI is characterized by a strong industrial focus reflected in the program committee and the content of the program. As program chairs of EUSAI 2004 we have tried to preserve the character for this event and its combined focus on the original four major thematic areas: ubiquitous computing, context awareness, intelligence and natural interaction. This was reflected in the call for proposals and the constitution of the review committee. Further, we have tried to make EUSAI, which started as a symposium, grow into a full-fledged double-track conference. EUSAI included events such as a tutorial and workshop program, a poster and demonstration exhibition, a student design competition and three invited keynotes: Ted Selker from MIT, Tom Rodden from the University of Nottingham and Tom Erickson from IBM. This Adjunct-Proceedings volume includes the extended abstracts of the submissions in the following categories: demonstrations, posters, tutorials and workshops. All submissions have been reviewed to ensure the quality of the proceedings and have been revised to reflect the comments by reviewers.
