Special Issue "Context-Awareness of Mobile Systems"
A special issue of Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2016)
Mobile communication systems have been progressively adopted and popularized within the last decade, becoming an essential element for domestic, industrial and administrative environments and applications. The evolution of communication systems is leading towards higher degrees of interactivity, provided by user centric systems, in which wide connectivity, within the framework of IoT and the use of Heterogeneous Network will enable Context Aware environments, such as those provided for Ambient Assisted Living or Smart Cities/Smart Regions.
This Special Issue focuses on the developments and evolution of wireless communication systems towards the progressive implementation of Context Aware environments and applications.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Context Aware scenarios and testbeds
- Mobile oriented applications towards Context Aware environments
- Case studies within AAL, Home Automation, Building Automation
- Collaborative/HetNet Communication Paradigms
- Implementation of Mobile Applications of Smart Cities/Smart Regions
- Solutions within Vehicular Networks/Intelligent Transportation Systems integrated within Context Aware environments
- Security and Privacy issues within Context Aware Mobile Systems
