CASTA 2009 is the first joint workshop on Context-Aware Software
Technology and Applications, co-located with ESEC/FSE 2009 in
Amsterdam (August 24-28, 2009).
Context awareness is the notion of computer systems that dynamically
adapt their behavior to a changing environment. Such applications are
useful in many situations ranging from general human-computer
interaction over business process execution to healthcare or
logistics. However, mainstream programming languages and tools do not
offer dedicated support for adaptive properties. Additionally, as
context awareness is an application requirement, it should already be
addressed at the modeling level.
Recent developments in dynamic programming languages enable context
awareness technically, but the application-oriented communities have
had little opportunity to benefit from these insights. Vice versa,
certain application requirements concerning context could probably be
met better by specially-tailored programming and modeling techniques.
This workshop attempts to bring together researchers from the
disparate communities to exchange ideas, establish a common research
program, and foster new collaborations.
The workshop is intended to be dynamic and interactive.
We especially welcome presentations that bridge communities, are
provocative, or offer live demonstrations of novel context-aware
applications or technologies. Contributions are invited related to any
aspect of context awareness, including:
1) Requirements engineering for context-aware applications
2) Modeling context and context-aware applications, e.g.
- User modeling and adaptability
- Context-aware business processes
- Semantics of computational models for context-dependent
3) Programming languages and mechanisms to support dynamic
adaptation to context
4) Context-aware applications, including:
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Healthcare, supply chain management, logistics
- Interactive Systems
Workshop submissions are limited to 4 pages in length in ACM
proceedings format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates
). All submissions must be original work, and must not have been
previously published, nor be under consideration for publication
Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair submission system.
Accepted papers will be published through the ACM digital library. A
post-proceedings containing extended versions of selected papers is
planned. (Venue to be decided.)
Important Dates (Hard deadlines!):
Paper Submission: May 1, 2009
Notification: June 1, 2009
Camera-ready version: June 26, 2009
