Call for Papers

EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience
for attendees 
and a successful course of the event.

EAI is committed to holding the conference in 2021 and Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given
an option to present their submission online. In case the situation prevents the event from taking place in its original location,
it will be held fully in an interactive, live online setting. Find out what EAI conference live streams look like and discover unique benefits
that online participation brings you: Learn more
Accepted Authors will be notified about the final decision regarding the conference setting before the Camera-ready deadline.

Scope

ICCASA 2021 is a place for highly original ideas about how Context-Aware Systems (CAS) are going to shape networked computing systems of the future. Hence, it focuses on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions which break new ground in dealing with the properties of context-awareness. Its purpose is to make a formal basis more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and students as well as developers and practitioners in ICT by providing them with state-of-the-art research results, applications, opportunities and future trends.

CAS is primarily inspired by the human autonomic nervous system and it’s is characterized by itself – facets such as self-organization, self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimization, self-protection and so on whose context awareness used to dynamically control computing and networking functions. The overall goal of CAS is to realize nature inspired autonomic systems, that can manage themselves without direct human interventions. Meeting this grand challenge of CAS requires a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to context-aware systems.

We are happy to inform you about the collocated conference ICTCC 2021! We are pleased to invite you to submit your paper to ICCASA 2021. They should follow the Springer formatting guidelines (see Submission).
