Call for papersCloud computing, autonomic computing, pervasive computing, and mobile computing tend to be converging to maximize the combined benefits of these paradigms. A large number of applications can take advantage of this, including healthcare, traffic control, and social network applications. However, these applications are complex by nature and introduce several challenges of their own, for example, reliable sensing, accurate context recognition, scalability, security, dealing with previously unforeseen side-effects of adaptations, and so on. These challenges can be meaningfully addressed when researchers of diverse background come together to provide different views of the same problems and to help each other understand the complex relationships between contending ideas. The Casemans 2012 workshop aims to open a platform for researchers of ubiquitous computing, autonomic computing, and similar fields to address these issues.
This year, we are building on the success of casemans 2011 by introducing full and short paper sessions. Full papers will demonstrate solid research results (4-6 ACM pages) while short papers (typically 2 ACM Pages) demonstrate visionary, critical and even controversial ideas and work-in-progress that can encourage discussion and further research.
