CAT2010 is a European event that follows the Context-Aware and Trust initiatives of recent years. It offers scientists and engineers who are active in the areas of context-awareness and of security, privacy and trust the opportunity to sit down together to discuss the state of the art, to identify open and emerging problems, to share research experiences, and to propose future research directions.
We encourage the participation of researchers from both academia and industry with a background in computer science and engineering, as well as in social sciences and behavioural sciences.
Context awareness — the quality of being aware of the physical/virtual environment or the circumstances that characterize a situation or an entity — can intelligently guide the success or the development of an activity. It should integrated into the design of innovative user interfaces, as a part of ubiquitous and wearable computing, and into hybrid search engines. Context can affect a decision to trust as well as the ensuring security and controlling privacy. For example, new threats against security, privacy, and trust may result from context-awareness. At the same time, the availability of context information offers new opportunities to establish, to enhance and to manage trust, privacy, and security. Moreover, the location of a user can have impact on which services or content are provided to that user, while alternatively, the user's current role or social context can determine the degree of trust others establish towards that user. Such interdependencies between context-awareness on one side, and trust, privacy and security on the other, still require complete study.
