CoSDEO deadline has been extended to May 19th 2013.
Authors please also note that the paper template for
inclusion in the ACM Digital Library has been changed,
please see the workshop website for details.

           Deadline Extension and 3rd CALL FOR PAPERS
                  for the Fourth CoSDEO Workshop
               Device-Free Radio-Based Recognition

                       in conjunction with
             2013 ACM International Joint Conference
              on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing
                          (UbiComp 2013)

          in Zurich, Switzerland, September 9-12, 2013

The 4th CoSDEO-workshop aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on the design, implementation, and evaluation of
systems, algorithms or models for the device-free, radio-based
recognition of contexts.

Recently, using analysis of signal distortions in a typical radio
network to derive contexts such as location, type or activity of an
object not outfitted with a radio receives a growing amount of attention
from researchers. The possibility to acquire context information without
instrumenting users and without the drawbacks of e.g. optical systems
has great potential for typical applications of Ubiquitous Computing.
Radio signals are inherently noisy and signal changes depend on a
variety of environmental and sensor-specific factors.

It is therefore the goal of CosDEO 4th to provide a publication and
discussion platform for this growing community in which fundamental
problems but also sophisticated approaches can be presented.
Thus, we like to encourage scientists in all stages of their research,
from first experiments to readily developed and evaluated systems, to
submit their original work to allow a broad discussion with established
field experts but also researchers relatively new to the field.
Even if work is in a very early stage all submitted work must conform to
typical scientific standards; providing a good overview of the field
and the specific area of the context of interest. If the paper is based
on a technical system the system should be described and discussed
thoroughly. Besides regular papers, we also encourage submission of
visionary papers which must not describe completed research but contain
ideas new to the field. These maybe related to novel techniques for the
radio-based detection of contexts but also novel applications and
designs of device-free radio-based context recognition systems.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Design aspects of device-free radio-based recognition systems
- General experimental work and field studies on device-free radio-based
- Models/algorithms for recognizing contexts using device-free
radio-based sensors
- Reports on the evaluation of device-free radio-based recognition systems
- Investigations directed at signal processing, recognition robustness,
signal sampling, etc. for device-free radio-based recognition
- Investigations directed at feasibility of recognizing novel classes
using radio frequency signal analysis
- System architectures for device-free radio-based recognition
- Monitoring of attention levels by device-free radio-based sensing systems
- Algorithms/methods enabling device-free sensing using existing and
novel radio hardware
