Call for Participation:
Ubicomp 2010 Workshop on Mobile Context-Awareness: Capabilities,
Challenges and Applications, 26th September 2010, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Submission: 18th June 2010
Notification of Acceptance: 5th July 2010
Camera-ready deadline: 9th July 2010

Workshop Scope:
Mobile context-awareness is a popular research trend in the field of
ubiquitous computing. Advances in mobile device sensory hardware and the
rise of 'virtual' sensors such as web APIs mean that the mobile user is
exposed to a vast range of data that can be used for new advanced

This workshop allows industrial and academic researchers to present and
discuss work focusing on novel methods of context acquisition in the
mobile environment - particularly through the use of physical and
virtual sensors - along with research into new applications utilising
this context. In addition, the workshop will encourage insights into the
technical and usability challenges in mobile context-awareness, as well
as observations on current and future trends in the field. 

The goal of the workshop is to share knowledge of ongoing research into
mobile context-awareness, from hardware and middleware to higher level
applications; particularly those that make use of multiple physical and
virtual sensors. Thoughts, challenges and future developments in the
field will be discussed, and the workshop will allow research to be
presented to a target audience of academic and industrial peers. 

The workshop is aimed at the UbiComp community, so submissions will be
from both technical and human perspectives, with emphasis on studies and
empirical results from work in the field. 

Guideline topics of interest include: 
*	Novel mobile applications that use context-awareness,
particularly from multiple sources
*	Novel methods of context data acquisition through physical,
virtual or logical sensors
*	Methods of context inference, particularly on-device
*	Mechanisms to deal with sensing and inference failure in
context-aware applications and services
*	Studies that successfully utilise historical context, i.e.
through learning
*	Studies that utilise predictive methods of context acquisition,
e.g. likelihood of availability or future presence
*	Privacy mechanisms and how they might affect usability in mobile
context-aware systems

Participants will be selected based on paper submissions of 4 pages
around the listed topics of interest. They should be written in Ubicomp
2010 workshop format and sent as an attached PDF file to
[log in to unmask] by 18th June 2010. Submissions will be
reviewed by the workshop organisers, and successful candidates will
present their paper at the workshop. Additionally, the workshop will
support discussion of the presented work and encourage demonstrations of
any applications or systems.

The workshop proceedings will be included on the conference USB stick
given to all conference participants at Ubicomp 2010.
