CAM 2011 : International Workshop on Context Aware Middleware for Ubiquitous Computing Environments
Call For Papers
all for Papers
The “International Workshop on Context Aware Middleware for Ubiquitous Computing Environments” (CAM 11) will be held in conjunction with the the 11th International Conference on Telecommunications for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITST-2011) in Park Inn Pulkovskaya, St. Petersburg, Russia from August 23 to August 25, 2011. The aim of this workshop is to gather researchers in the emerging area of context awareness to exchange knowledge and ideas.
Context is a fundamental concept in the pervasive computing; which is generally defined as any information that can be used to characterize the situation of an entity. A context aware application always uses context to adapt its behavior and provide improved and pervasive services to the users. The main challenge to implement a context aware application is discovering and obtaining the required context. Context aware middlewares aim to facilitate the development of context aware applications. In general, the task of a context aware middleware is firstly discovering context sources; and then gathering, aggregating, modeling, conflict resolving, and reasoning context; and finally creating transparent mechanisms for context aware applications to obtain their context needs. The developers of pervasive computing environments usually invest in developing a middleware for supporting context aware applications.
CAM 11 invites authors to submit their papers that address issues related to context aware middlewares. Topics of interest are included but not limited to:
· Context aware middleware
· Context management architecture/framework
· Context discovery
· Context aggregation
· Context modeling
· Context reasoning
· Context distribution/dissemination
· Context aware applications
CAM 11 seeks original, previously unpublished, not currently under review by another conference or journal manuscripts, describing research in all aspects of context awareness that contribute to the workshop theme. All papers will be peer reviewed, and acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. The total length of a paper should not exceed 6 pages formatted according to the IEEE Template. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore and indexed in relevant databases. Papers must be submitted via ITST-2011 EDAS submission site in pdf format.
