ICCASA 2018 : The 7th EAI International Conference on Context-Aware Systems and Applications
Call For Papers
The ICCASA 2018 conference (co-located with ICTCC 2018 conference) sponsored by EAI, Hung Vuong University in Phu Tho Province (HVU) and Nguyen Tat Thanh 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.
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 2018 will bring together Vietnamese and international researchers and practitioners working or interested in the intersection of approaches for supporting context-aware systems.
