12th Workshop on Context and Activity Modeling and Recognition

  Call for Papers

There is a growing interest in context-aware applications that 
intelligently support user tasks by acting autonomously on behalf of 
users. Among others, activity of the user is one important context. 
Behavior of context-aware applications depends not only on their 
internal state and user interactions but also on the context sensed 
during their execution. Some early models of context information already 
exist, however many research issues related to context information 
modeling are still not fully addressed. Existing context models vary in 
types of context information they can represent; e.g., either the user’s 
current situation or the physical environment. A more generic approach 
to context modeling is needed in order to capture various features of 
context information including a variety of types of context information, 
dependencies between context information, quality of context information 
and context histories. Tools for modeling and reasoning with the social 
context of groups of people are also needed. In addition, to ease 
software engineering problems, appropriate abstractions are necessary to 
support discovery and reuse of context information as well as scalable 
methods of context processing and management.

This workshop’s aim is to advance the state of the art in context 
modeling and reasoning and discuss fundamental issues in context 
processing and management. The goal is to identify concepts, theories 
and methods applicable to context modeling and context reasoning as well 
as system-oriented issues related to the design and implementation of 
context-aware systems.

In particular, the following topics are of interest to this workshop:

   - Context modeling techniques
   - Domain-specific context models
   - Ontology-based approaches to context modeling and reasoning
   - Hybrid context models (integration of various modeling techniques)
   - Advanced issues in context modeling, including issues of
     information quality, ambiguity, and provenance
   - Context reasoning algorithms, their complexity and accuracy
   - Social context modeling and recognition
   - Discovery and reuse of context information
   - Privacy, security and trust of context information
   - Distributed and scalable context management
   - Tool support for context modeling and development of context
     model-based applications
   - Balance of autonomy with user control
   - Machine learning and reasoning techniques for context and activity

The CoMoRea Workshop is a follow-up to a successful eleven years series 
of workshops on Context Modelling and Reasoning (CoMoRea) and the 
ACOMORE Symposium. It is collocated with the 14th Annual IEEE Intl. 
Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications in Sydney, 
Australia (March 14-18 2016).
