5th EAI International Conference on Context-Aware Systems and Applications

November 24–25, 2016 | Thu Dau Mot, Vietnam

Official conference proceedings of ICCASA 2016 will appear in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) series jointly published by ICST and Springer. All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format. There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes.

The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, single-column pages using on A4 or letter pages in Springer LNICST style format. The maximum number of pages is 10 for full papers. Authors should submit a 6-page single-column manuscript for short papers. The camera-ready version of an accepted full (short) paper cannot exceed 10 (6) pages.

All accepted papers will appear in Springer LNICST proceedings only if at least one of the authors attends to present the paper.

All papers, but particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition, will be automatically considered for publication in an expanded form in the special issues of ELSEVIER Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS) Journal (indexed in SCIE), Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) (scie-INDEXED) journal (indexed in SCIE) and EAI endorsed Transactions on Context-Aware Systems and Applications
