Intelligent environments are without a doubt a great feat of technology, one of many that characterize the society of information and technology we now experience. Despite bringing recognizable advantages to the fulfillment of human needs by adapting the ecosystem around human intentionalities and activities, intelligent environments do bring about difficult challenges to the creation of normative frameworks that regulate their usage. Drafting and applying legal norms that are suitable to ever-evolving technologies means that, on one hand, not only legal practitioners, legislators and scholars must be prepared to closely monitor technological advances to adequately prepare and apply suitable legal norms, and, on the other hand, do so in a pace that is traditionally not common in law. This workshop is intended to create a forum of discussion between those who share a common interest in this area of intersection between technology (intelligent environments) and law.
