                      LoCA 2007 Call for Papers

      3rd International Symposium on Location- and Context-Awareness

                      September 20th-21st, 2007
                Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich, Germany


The 2007 Symposium on Location and Context Awareness seeks new and 
significant research on systems, services, and applications to detect,
interpret and use of location and other contextual information.  
Context includes users’ activities, goals, abilities, preferences, 
interruptibility, affordances, and surroundings. With context, we can 
expect computers to deliver information, services, and entertainment 
in a way that maximizes convenience and minimizes intrusion. 
Developing awareness involves research in sensing, inference, data 
representation, and design.

Topic Areas:
We seek technical papers describing original, previously unpublished 
research results.  Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Sensing location and context
- Inference techniques for context from low-level sensor data
- Privacy and sharing of location and context information
- User studies of location- and context-aware systems

Submission Deadline:    May  29, 2007
Author Notification:    July  3, 2007
Camera-Ready Version:   July 10, 2007
Symposium:              Sept. 20-21, 2007

Paper Submission Guidelines:
All papers will be reviewed by an international program committee with 
appropriate expertise. LoCA 2007 aims to be selective and the committee
will favor a technically robust program. The ideal LoCA submission 
should provide an insightful survey of existing work, introduce a 
radically new concept, or present concrete, significant, transferable 
research based on the implementation and evaluation of a working system.

Accepted papers will be presented by their authors at the LoCA Symposium 
near Munich and published in the Springer Lecture Notes on Computer 
Science. Submissions must be formatted in Springer LNCS style, limited 
to 18 pages. Submit papers via http://www.edas.info/newPaper.php?c=4899.  
Preparation of the camera-ready version of accepted papers may be 
shepherded by the program committee.

Demonstration Submission Guidelines - New this year!
New this year, we will have a demonstration session. We solicit 
proposals for demos of location and context technologies or 
applications. Demo proposals should include a brief 2-3 page 
description of the demo and describe the key research results or 
innovation. Demo submissions will follow the same review timeline as 
the papers.

Best Paper and Presentation Awards:
One paper will be elected for a Best Paper Award by the LoCA program 
committee. In addition, a combination of the LoCA program committee and
all symposium participants will elect the recipient of the 
Best Presentation Award following the symposium.
