Call for Papers

The 16th Workshop on Context Modeling and Activity Recognition (CoMoRea) is a follow-up to a successful series of workshops on Context Modeling and Reasoning and the ACOMORE Symposium. It is collocated with the 18th Annual IEEE Intl. Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications in Austin, Texas, USA, March 23-27, 2020.

There is a growing interest in context-aware applications that intelligently support user tasks by acting autonomously on behalf of users. Among others, activity of the user is one important context. Behavior of context-aware applications depends not only on their internal state and user interactions but also on the context sensed during their execution. Some early models of context information already exist, however many research issues related to context information modeling are still not fully addressed. Existing context models vary in types of context information they can represent; e.g., either the user’s current situation or the physical environment. A more generic approach to context modeling is needed in order to capture various features of context information including a variety of types of context information, dependencies between context information, quality of context information and context histories. Tools for modeling and reasoning with the social context of groups of people are also needed. In addition, to ease software engineering problems, appropriate abstractions are necessary to support discovery and reuse of context information as well as scalable methods of context processing and management.
This workshop's aim is to advance the state of the art in context modeling and reasoning and discuss fundamental issues in context processing and management. The goal is to identify concepts, theories and methods applicable to context modeling and context reasoning as well as system-oriented issues related to the design and implementation of context-aware systems.

Important dates:
Paper submission deadline: November 11, 2019
Paper notification: December 20, 2019
Camera ready: January 31, 2020
Workshop date: March 23 or March 27 (tba)

In particular, the following topics are of interest to this workshop:

- Context modeling techniques and domain-specific context models
- Ontology-based approaches to context modeling and reasoning
- Ontologies of activities and context
- Hybrid context models and advanced issues in context modeling, including issues of information quality, ambiguity, and provenance
- Context reasoning algorithms, their complexity and accuracy
- Discovery, reuse, privacy, security and trust of context information
- Distributed and scalable context management
- Tool support for context modeling and development of context model-based applications
- High level activity recognition from sensor data
- Machine Learning and Computer Vision for Activity Recognition and Context Reasoning
- Reference Datasets and Benchmarks for Activity Recognition and Context Reasoning
- Innovative context-aware applications
- Context modelling and management for Internet of Things

Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore).
