                              CALL FOR PAPERS
                        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.

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 

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
