Topics of Interest
------------------

Proactive computing systems are connected to the physical world by
means of sensors and actuators which are used to both measure and 
manipulate the physical surroundings. Mobile and pervasive 
environments have turned out to be a promising application area for 
proactive systems, as environmental data is used to provide users 
with appropriate resources, information, and services. To achieve 
this, proactive systems need to be able to understand the different 
contexts that apply in and for any given user/communication 
situation.
Such context awareness poses many challenges, including the modeling
and represention of context, the design of scalable and secure
frameworks and architectures for context gathering and processing, or 
the efficient adaptation of distributed applications in dynamic 
environments.

CAPS invites submissions on the following topics (but not limited to):

* Context modeling and representation
* Tools and techniques for reasoning on context information
* Frameworks and architectures for scalable context-aware systems
* Experience with deploying context-aware applications in proactive
  systems
* Trust and privacy of context information in proactive systems
* Context learning and prediction techniques
* Context-aware reconfiguration of distributed applications
* Sensor and actuator management
