you all on June 10, 2005
on IWSAWC in Columbus, Ohio
New: Adjunct Poster Proceedings of IWSAWC05
Through the latest technological developments,
researchers have the possibility to deploy applications on a larger
scale beyond scenarios within the lab environment. For the exploration
of such new larger-scale scenarios, enabling hardware and software are
essentially required. These include new kinds of embedded and smart
devices, personal and wearable computers, infrastructure components,
software architectures and models.
The diversity of systems, devices, services and applications places
collaborative technologies, contextual awareness and access methods for
distributed information in the fore, as users, technologies and
appliances are seamlessly integrated in the real world.
This workshop serves as a forum for the exchange of new findings in
collaborative technologies and smart appliances deployed in real world
environments. It further offers an opportunity for in-depth exploration
of selected topics and for the presentation of the most recent research
and development findings in these rapidly changing fields.
Technical papers on smart appliances and collaborative technologies are
solicited for oral presentation at IWSAWC 2005. Papers reporting new
developments in computing with smart devices such as PDAs, wearable
computers, and cellular phones, including but not limited to those
listed below, are invited.
- Enabling Technologies for Appliances in Ubiquitous and Pervasive
- Collaboration concepts and techniques for smart devices
- Infrastructure components for Ubiquitous Computing
- Home and Office Appliances
- Portable Devices and Smart Sensors
- Wireless-phone Computing
- Home Networks and Wearable Networks
- Networks for Ubiquitous Computing
- Security and Privacy Aspects for Ubiquitous Computing
- Wearable Computers and PDAs
- Software and Service Architectures for Home/Smart Appliances
- Location-dependent and context-aware Computing
In addition to regular technical presentations, a session of posters
accompanied by demonstrations is held for presenting latest
developments and active discussions.
