During the 15th edition of the International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE’19) held in Rabat (Morocco) last June, IOS Press rewarded several researchers by their attention to quality and the potential impact of their work. Prizes to the best contributions in the categories Best Full Paper and Best Short paper were supported by JAISE and the AISE book series.
The prize for the Best Full Paper consists of one year free subscription to JAISE and was kindly provided by IOS Press, the publisher of JAISE. The chairs of the conference directly based upon the judgment of the Program Committee unanimously decided to award the prize to the paper: “Remote Detection of Indoor Human Proximity using Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons” by Michele Girolami, Fabio Mavilia, Paolo Barsocchi, Filippo Palumbo and Stefano Chessa.
