14th Workshop on Context and Activity Modeling and Recognition (CoMoRea'18)
2018-03-19 to 2018-03-23
Athens, Greece

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.

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

20th IEEE International Conference on E-health Networking, Application & Services
2018-09-17 to 2018-09-20
Ostrava, Czech Republic

The 20th IEEE Healthcom 2018 conference will be held in Ostrava, nowadays one of the fastest growing city for the deployment of IT technologies and smart solutions in central Europe. In respect to our recent history, when Ostrava was called the “iron heart” of our country because of the mining and steel-making plants, we would like to introduce the traditional way of life in our region to you together with the renaissance of our city, now mixing in symbiosis the history with modernity. Our region is famous not only for its beautiful nature, many unique historical places hidden to mass tourism, hospitality and industrial history but also for several famous personalities born close to Ostrava city like Sigmund Freud, Vilem Wunche, Joy Adams and Leos Janacek.

During the conference we would like to focus on several topics connected with E-health networking, applications and systems in biomedical engineering.

The 2018 edition of Healthcom conference will also focus on e-Health in smart regions from all possible perspectives, because Ostrava agglomeration will soon become the first smart region in central Europe.

The 2018 conference puts emphasis not only on the quality organization and the benefit of the scientists and experts’ communications and meetings, but also on the cooperation with industrial partners. We will balance the professional side of the conference with unconventional and full-fledged culture and leisure activities.

We hope you will enjoy the 20th IEEE Healthcom 2018 conference, which we organize as a professional meeting which gives every participant the feeling of belonging to an outstanding scientific community but a friendly group as well.

Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit their original contributions covering completed or ongoing work related to the eHealth area. The topics include but are not limited to

Medical, Biomedical and Health Informatics

Devices

Communications and Networking

Signal/Data Processing and Systems

Services and Applications

System Research

E-Health Solutions to Challenging Problems

The Ninth International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN 2018)
2018-09-24 to 2018-09-27
Nantes, France

The advent of terrestrial positioning systems, the internet of things and human sensor networks providing new navigation functionalities sets a novel paradigm for indoor positioning and navigation solutions. The environment, where navigation technology is expected to work, has extended to challenging indoor spaces and to the context of goods and personal mobility. Globally there is no overall and easy solution. Every year, IPIN gathers over 400 industrial and academic experts in informatics, electronics and surveying to address this challenge. In the footsteps of our Japanese colleagues, we welcome you in France to IPIN 2018 for its ninth edition to discuss in person scientific and industrial matters, experience geolocation competitions beyond the conference venue and enjoy the historical and cultural heritage of Nantes.

The MDPI journal Sensors will award the winner of the contest in the category of papers presented by students.

The PhD student whose paper has the highest rank after the peer reviewed process will receive the prize for an amount of 1000 €.
