persons/groups potentially interested to submit.

==============  I-CENTRIC 2008 Call for Papers ===============

Note that the submission deadline has been extended to May 23.

I-CENTRIC 2008, International Conference on Advances in Human-oriented
and Personalized Mechanisms, Technologies, and Services

Call for Papers:

Submission deadline: May 23, 2008

Submissions will be peer-reviewed, published by IEEE CPS, posted in IEEE
Digital Library, and indexed with the major indexes.

Extended versions of selected papers will be published in IARIA

The evolution of services and the diversity of the user profiles
composed with various contents and context-based access led to the
development of specific mechanisms, services, and applications with a
definitive, personalized, and user-centric flavor. Mechanisms are in
place for service discovery using user profiles, for adapting the
traffic following the quality of experience, or allowing personalized
navigation and visualization. More is needed for network control and
feedback consideration as well as for personalized storage and
information retrieval within a given context.

There is a cohort of technologies that favored the so called I-centric
services and applications. While some of them reached some maturity,
others are to prove their economics (WiMax, IPTV, RFID, etc). The
human-oriented and personalized technologies and services rely on a key
set of features, some to be deployed, others getting more mature
(personal profiles, preferences, identity, proximity, personal devices,
etc.). Following, advanced applications covering human related
activities benefit from personalized and human-oriented networks and
services, especially preventive and personalized medicine, body networks
and devices, or anticipative systems.

I-CENTRIC 2008 inaugural event focuses on human-oriented and
personalized mechanisms, technologies, and services, commonly known as
I-centric. The conference will provide a forum where researchers shall
be able to present recent research results and new research problems and
directions related to them. The conference seeks contributions
presenting novel result and future research in all aspects of I- centric
mechanisms, technologies, and services.
