CALL FOR PAPERS: Context Aware Intelligent Assistance (CAIA 2011)
located at KI-2011,
Technical University, Berlin
Tuesday, October 04, 2011

CAIA 2011 is the successor of last year’s workshop (CAIA 2010)
where a consensus was researched about defining assistance as a
concept relative to a main task or purpose of a system or user.

This year we want to gain a more in-depth understanding of this
definition of assistance in context by studying interesting
applications and investigating how far the definitions take us
and how they should be refined or revised. We are especially
interested in the interplay of context and assistance, as both
are relative concepts.
We invite researchers and practitioners in the fields of
recommender systems, pervasive computing, mobile computing,
urban sensing, social networking, context-aware systems,
human computer interaction, or similar, working on Assistance
Systems—either from an application centered or a theoretical
point of view—to present their work at CAIA 2011.

Important Dates
Deadline for Submission: July 1, 2011
Notification of Authors: July 15, 2011
Final Version of Papers: August 1, 2011
Workshop Date: Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Topics of Interest
Topics include, but are not limited to:
• Formal models of preferences and contexts
- Reasoning about preferences in contexts
-Context modeling
-User preference oriented route planning
• User needs and applications
- location based services
- social networks
- navigation and planning of transportation
• Mobile recommendations
- collaborative filtering
- Interaction of social networks and mobile recommendation
- Mobile feedback and interpretation of user tags
- Semantic aggregation of web 2.0 information and services
- Group recommendations
• Reasoning
- Case based reasoning in mobile recommendation
- Mobile speech technology and NLP
- Dynamic environmental attributes (DEA)
- Multiple goal recommendation
- Event ontologies

Demos and applications are most welcome!

Submission Details
Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS
guidelines. The length of each paper should be between 5 and 10
pages. All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF
format via
Papers could (for instance) report on recent results, introduce
new ideas as position papers or discuss interesting future
research questions.

Publication options are currently evaluated.
We will probably offer a “cite-able” online publication format.

At least one author of an accepted paper has to attend the
workshop in order for the paper to be published in the workshop
