Call For Papers


One of hot topics in ICT is currently undergoing rapid advancements and emerging on the spot as one of the priority research areas, whose research activities are booming recently: context-aware systems (CAS), which is primarily inspired by the human autonomic nervous system. CAS is characterized by its self-* facets such as self-organization, self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimization, self-protection and so on whose context-awareness used to dynamically control computing and networking functions. The overall goal of CAS is to realize nature-inspired autonomic systems that can manage themselves without direct human interventions. Meeting this grand challenge of CAS requires a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to context-aware systems. To this end, ICCASA 2012 organizers welcome participation and contributions from those working or interested in the intersection of approaches for supporting context-aware systems.


The ICCASA 2012sponsored by ICST (a member of EAI) and NTT University (NTTU) is a place for highly original ideas about how CAS is going to shape networked computing systems of the future. Hence, it focuses on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions which break new ground in dealing with the properties of context-awareness. Its purpose is to make a formal basis more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and students as well as developers and practitioners in ICT by providing them with state-of-the-art research results, applications, opportunities and future trends.


Original papers are solicited for the ICCASA 2012. In particular, theoretical contributions should be formally stated and justified, and practical applications should be based on their firm formal basis. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Fundamentals of Context-aware systems:
Context-aware models
Context-aware control
Context-aware algorithms
Context-aware networks
Context-aware computing

Official conference proceedings of ICCASA 2012 will appear in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) series jointly published by ICST and Springer and indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via the paper management system CONFY using the link on conference web site. There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, single-column pages using on A4 or letter pages in Springer LNICST style format. The maximum number of pages is 10 for full papers. Authors should submit a 4-page single-column manuscript for short papers. The camera-ready version of an accepted full (short) paper cannot exceed 10 (4) pages. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site. All accepted papers will appear in Springer LNICST proceedings only if at least one of the authors attends to present the paper.


All papers, but particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition, will be automatically considered for publication in an expanded form in the special issues of Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) journal (SCIE-indexed), LNCS Transactions on Computational Science (Springer) and International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering (Inderscience).
