This paper introduces a declarative agent-oriented language for Ambient Intelligence - S-CLAIM - that allows programming reactive or cognitive mobile agents in a simple, easy-to-use manner while meeting AmI requirements. Based on a hierarchical representation of the agents, the language offers a natural solution to achieve context-sensitivity. S-CLAIM is light-weight and, being transparently underpinned by the JADE framework, allows deployment on mobile devices and easy interoperation with other components by means of web services. The usefulness of the proposed language for AmI is illustrated through a scenario and a demo featuring an AmI application in a Smart Room.
