Workshop Scope

Many applications from the ubiquitous and pervasive computing domain are also characterized as context-aware applications. They react not only to their internal state and user interaction but also depend on the context they are processed in. In the past a variety of context-models was subject of research. While early models mainly addressed the modeling of context with respect to one application or an application class, generic context models are of interest since many applications can benefit from these. Existing context models vary in the context they represent. While some models take the user’s current situation, e.g. "in a meeting" into account, others model the physical environment, i.e. locations. First steps towards a common understanding of context have been published, mostly with respect to location, identity, and time. In order to advance the state of the art, we need to develop uniform context models, representation and query languages and reasoning algorithms that facilitate context sharing and interoperability of applications.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss fundamental issues in context management and to identify widely applicable concepts, theories and methods. This includes theoretical and practical issues related to modeling and reasoning about context as well as system-oriented issues related to the design and implementation of context-aware systems.

CoMoRea will provide a forum for researchers to present and discuss recent research results and ongoing work. A strong emphasis is put on experiences with context representation and the management of the context information. The anticipated outcome of the workshop is a clarification of context representation, its management, and possible architectures based on the experiences and discussions at the workshop.



Submissions of papers are solicited in the IEEE proceedings format. Research papers must be original prior unpublished work and not under review elsewhere. Experience reports must be stated as such. These can contain prior work if clearly identified in the submission. Additionally a comprehensive discussion of the taken approach, experiences, and its assessment is expected. Both research papers and experience reports must not exceed 5 pages in the IEEE proceedings format including references and figures. Please send your submission in PDF format to Christian Becker.

Accepted papers will appear in combined PerCom 04 workshop proceedings.
