CoSDEO - The 3rd Workshop on Context Systems Design, Evaluation and Optimisation, Copenhagen, Denmark

Welcome to the 3rd CoSDEO workshop

The CoSDEO-workshop has the goal of bringing together researchers which focus on design, evaluation, optimisation and testing of systems for context computing. We are looking for original contributions on theoretical aspects as well as implementations and experiments regarding systems and system design in the field of context computing. In this context, practical implementations which require theoretical investigations shall be discussed. The workshop focuses on context and systems for context computing. An important aspect is the impact and processing scheme for uncertain contexts and quality of context, as well as the appropriate modeling of context and situations. For submitted manuscripts we appreciate resilient and comparable experimental studies.


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Design aspects of context aware systems
  • Experimental work and field studies on context aware systems
  • Security and trust in context systems
  • Experience with new sensor classes
  • Architectures and building blocks for context computing systems
  • Context recognition in distributed systems
  • Architectures and systems for context aware computing
  • Architectures and systems for pro-active context computing and context prediction
  • Optimisation and evaluation of models for context computing
  • Systems providing and using quality of context
  • Systems providing and using uncertain contexts
  • Context reasoning
  • Systems to ensure privacy and security in context processing

  • To foster discussion and collaboration among participants, the CoSDEO-workshop traditionally features an interactive hands-on session with demo, video and poster presentation. Additionally to regular submissions to this session, all participating authors will be kindly asked to participate according to their contribution.

    Submission instructions

    Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of their full paper. Papers must not exceed 12 pages single column (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points. Papers will be rigorously reviewed by an international technical program committee. Accepted submissions will be published in the MobiQuitous Workshop Proceedings. The proceedings are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) series
