IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference

CCNC 2012 Special Session onLocation and Context Based Technologies and Applications on Smartphones

“Going Mobile!” With the explosion of smartphones with built-in GPS and supporting network-based localization, a large portion of the population is carrying their own networked personalized sensing and computing devices. Location and context based applications, such as the recent Color and Bump apps on iPhone and Android, are becoming wildly popular. Related applications are broad and diverse, ranging from games, travel guidance, advertisement and classifieds, social networking, to smart campus.  

This special session is intended to provide a forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to share their experiences on all aspects of new location-aware and context-based smartphone technologies and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, GPS-enabled applications, GPS-less localization methods, middleware for location-based applications, location-based information fusion and dissemination, integration of Web and geo-location technologies, physical virtual interactions, location and context based social networking, and security and privacy issues on smartphones.

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit regular technical papers or position papers. The position papers should present novel technologies at an early stage of development or share future vision. All the submissions should describe original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Please submit the paper through EDAS.
