Workshop Scope and Description

Awareness is the ability to be smart in interpreting feelings and perceptions. Context is inherently complex, its effective use in intelligent context-aware systems representing a protracted and difficult challenge that has to date not been effectively addressed. In Contextual Computing, a context definition should include contextual information to enable systems to effectively and precisely understand users and their situated role (a situated role describing the current situation and environment individual users experience during their interaction with the system) while reacting dynamically to the users feelings and perceptions.

Intelligent context-aware systems include context awareness, intention awareness, situation awareness, location awareness, risk awareness, safety awareness, opportunity awareness, etc. The ultimate goal is to build smart context-aware systems and aware-based applications in theoretical and practical developments.

The aim of the workshop is to present topical and innovative research utilizing intelligent context-aware computing systems and technologies to address theoretical and practical issues in a diverse and heterogeneous range of application domains. This workshop provides a forum for engineers, researchers, and scientists to exchange the latest results of Intelligent Context-Aware Systems. The workshop seeks original contributions in all relevant areas addressing the fundamentals and developments in intelligent context and its use in context-aware systems including (but not limited to) the following topics:

Topics of Interest

Intelligent Context-Aware Applications and Systems include context/background awareness, intention/preference awareness, situation awareness, location awareness, risk awareness, safety awareness, opportunity awareness, etc.
Intelligent Context-Aware Hybrid Systems include Collaborative Systems, E-learning Applications, Distributed Distance Learning Networked Systems, and Networking Information Systems
Awareness for ubiquitous/ service computing includes Personalization, Targeted Service Provision, Ubiquitous Context-Aware Mobile Learning (m-learning), Ubiquitous Surveys, and Context-Aware Ubiquitous mobile Health Care.
Awareness for Web Technologies includes Ontology and Semantic Web Technologies.
Context-aware and intelligent networking include Context-Aware Mobile and Smart information systems
Database and Knowledge management issues in Context-Aware Systems
