## Call for papers
The 5th CoSDEO-workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners 
working on the design, implementation, and evaluation of systems, algorithms 
or models for contact-free ambient sensing.

Recently, contact-free and device-free sensing for context and activity 
recognition 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. It is therefore the goal of CosDEO 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 requirements; showing 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 
may be related to novel techniques for contact-free ambient sensing but also 
novel applications and designs of this sensing paradigm.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

 * Novel applications that are enabled by contact-free sensing
 * Fusion of multi-modal sensor data for contact-free sensing
 * Energy efficient contact-free sensing
 * Propagation models to capture human effects
 * Architectural design for contact-free sensing systems
 * Reducing the effort of system calibration or recalibration
 * Scaling laws and fundamental limits for different contact-free sensing 
 * Novel hardware and sensor design for contact-free sensing
 * Data reduction, inference and mining for contact-free sensing
 * Experience with real-world deployments and applications
 * Context reasoning models/algorithms for contact-free sensing
 * Signal processing techniques for contact-free sensing
 * Sensing sentiment with contact-free systems from ambient sources
 * Device-free radio-based systems
 * General experimental work and field studies on contact-free systems
 * Models/algorithms for contact-free ambient sensing
 * Reports on the evaluation of contact-free ambient sensing
 * System architectures for contact-free ambient sensing
