The CoSDEO-workshop has the goal to bring together reserachers in the areas of context computing that focus on system design, system evaluation, system optimisation and testing.

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. Regarding the context part, an important aspect is the impact and processing scheme for uncertain contexts and quality of context, as well as the appropriate modelling of context and situations. Regarding the systems part, we appreciate resilient and comparable experimantal 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
- Architectures and building blocks for context computing systems
- Surveys about architectures and systems for context aware computing
- Surveys about 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

The workshop will comprise invited papers on current topics of leading experts in the field as well as submitted papers. Page limit for accepted papers (in English) is 10 pages (formatted according to Springer LNCS style: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.htmlA4) and will be published in the ARCS Workshop Proceedings.

Additional to a paper session we will also arrange a discussion between workshop participants, invited guests and interested audience on existing context systems, current achievements and intriguing open research aspects.
