CALL FOR PAPERS: Context Aware Intelligent Assistance, 4 Oct 2011, GERMANY

http://ursaminor.informatik.uni-augsburg.de/CAIA2011

located at KI-2011, Technical University, Berlin(Germany)

CAIA 2011 is the successor of last year?s workshop (CAIA 2010) where a consensus was researched 
about defining assistance as a concept relative to a main task or purpose of a system or user.

This year we want to gain a more in-depth understanding of this definition of assistance in context
by studying interesting applications and investigating how far the definitions take us and how 
they should be refined or revised. We are especially interested in the interplay of context and 
assistance, as both are relative concepts. We invite researchers and practitioners in the fields 
of recommender systems, pervasive computing, mobile computing, urban sensing, social networking, 
context-aware systems, human computer interaction, or similar, working on Assistance Systems, 
either from an application centered or a theoretical point of view?to present their work at CAIA 2011.
