Third Workshop on Context Awareness for Proactive Systems,
18-19 June 2007
Following CAPS 2005 and 2006, the third Workshop on Context Awareness for Proactive Systems will be held in June 2007 at the University of Surrey, UK.
The workshop will provide a unique platform to discuss and exchange findings of research into proactive computing and communication systems. Their connection to the physical world is increasingly driven by sensors and actuators which are used to both measure and manipulate the physical environment. The environmental data gathered is one of the major influencing factors for proactive systems, the data acts as stimuli to which these systems respond. Such responses are mainly in terms of providing users with appropriate resources, information, and services.
To achieve this, proactive systems need to be able to understand the different contexts that apply in and for any given user/communication situation. Such context awareness is based on inference of sensor data to achieve knowledge on a users' state, emotions, activities, goals, etc. and to proactively adjust the systems behaviour. Deploying proactive systems in the increasingly embedded and ubiquitous environments further raises the need to make them context-aware.
Context awareness poses many challenges towards proactive systems. The main objective of the workshop is to study and explore these challenges and proposed ways of meeting them. This includes research on modelling and representing context in proactive computing systems, frameworks and architectures for context gathering, handling, sensor and actuator management, context reasoning, learning, and prediction as well as on modelling, recognising and fulfilling user demand.
CAPS invites submissions on following topics (but not limited to):
* Sensor and actuator management
* Context modelling and representation
* Context information gathering and data management
* Frameworks and architectures for context-aware systems
* Context learning and prediction techniques
* Context reasoning
* User demand recognition and modelling
* Context-based resource, information, and service provisioning
* Infrastructures for proactive systems
The submission system is open now and will close on January 31st 2007.
Papers should be a maximum of 10 pages (including figures and references) in LNCS camera ready style (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
Full papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format.
Poster submissions should be a maximum of 5 pages (including figures and references). Poster papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format.
Software demonstration proposals should be a maximum of 2 pages describing the contents of the demonstration. Demonstration papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format.
All submissions will undergo a thorough review process and will be judged on quality, originality, clarity and topical content. Submitted papers should not have been previously published, in part or in full, or be under consideration of another conference or journal. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, selected papers will be published in a post-conference textbook.
Please indicate whether you submit your paper as full-paper, poster or demonstration proposal.
