## Call for papers
The 5th CoSDEO-workshop aims to bring together researchers and 
working on the design, implementation, and evaluation of systems, 
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 
applications of Ubiquitous Computing. It is therefore the goal of CosDEO 
provide a publication and discussion platform for this growing community 
which fundamental problems but also sophisticated approaches can be 

Thus, we like to encourage scientists in all stages of their research, 
first experiments to readily developed and evaluated systems, to submit 
original work to allow a broad discussion with established field experts 
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 
system the system should be described and discussed thoroughly.
Besides regular papers, we also encourage submission of visionary papers 
must not describe completed research but contain ideas new to the field. 
may be related to novel techniques for contact-free ambient sensing but 
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 
  * 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
