Workshop Overview :

   The MobiSys 2004 Context-Awareness Workshop seeks to present innovative, signficant research in the area of context-aware computing. This will be a one-day workshop, featuring refereed paper presentations and breakout sessions. To facilitate significant discussion, the number of attendees will be limited and attendees are expected to have read the workshop papers prior to the workshop. The workshop particularly values the practical experience gained from designing, building, and using context-aware computing systems, applications, and services.

The conference addresses broad systems issues in context-aware computing. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Design, implementation, and evaluation of context-aware applications
  • Middleware and service architectures supporting context-aware applications
  • Data management and representation of context information
  • Security and privacy of context-aware systems and applications
  • Resource discovery of context data sources
  • Algorithms and techniques for making inferences about context information
  • Novel sources of context information
  • Experience with context-aware systems
