ICCASA 2019 : ICCASA 2019 - 8th EAI International Conference on Context-Aware Systems and Applications
Call For Papers
The ICCASA 2019 conference (co-located with ICTCC 2019 conference) sponsored by EAI, Tien Giang University (TGU) 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 the 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.
We seek novel, innovative, and exciting work in areas including but not limited to:
1. Fundamentals of Context-aware systems
Logic in context-awareness
Formal methods of context-awareness
Context-awareness-based optimization and swarm Intelligence
2. Context-aware Systems
Routing, transport, and reliability issues of context-aware systems
Data dissemination and replication in context-aware systems
Applications and middleware support, mobile social networking applications
Mobility models and statistical analysis of mobility traces
Context and social awareness mechanisms and algorithms
Co-existence of opportunistic networks with infrastructure mobile wireless networks
Service composition in autonomic and opportunistic networks
Cognition-driven information processing and decision making
