Proactive systems make inferences about the user's future state, activities and goals and provide services, resources or information that can help the user succeeding in these. Such systems are increasingly deployed in mobile environments like laptops, mobile phones and PDAs. However, this move to a mobile and pervasive environment raises new opportunities and demands on the underlying systems. In particular, they need and benefit from being
personalised and context-aware.

Objectives of this workshop include exploring what system architectures and infrastructure are needed for managing and using context in context-aware systems, how to model and represent context in proactive systems and how to reason with context and predict future context and needs of the user.

Goals and audience

The major goal of the workshop is to bring researchers and developers both from industry and academics together to study and explore the management and use of context especially in proactive systems.

Topics of interests

The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Architectures for context-aware systems
  • Context data management
  • Context modelling and representation
  • Context reasoning
  • Infrastructure for proactive systems
  • Prediction techniques
