Professor Andrés Muñoz Ortega has participated in the conference for five years. His teaching and research work at the Catholic University of Murcia has supported his appointment as 'General Chair,' a position he will occupy during this edition, due to his experience in the application of intelligent systems to areas such as, smart cars and building the University's own, Virtual Campus.

The conference for 'Intelligent Environments' will offer innovations that improve the quality of life for people, as they can help control the evolution of an illness or disease. "Smart houses, using technology, can represent a way to help older people who live alone and suffer some pathology or are at risk of falling," he acknowledges.
