ICDIM 2010

The 4th International Workshop on Context Modeling and Management for Smart Environments (CMMSE’2010)


in Conjunction with 5th IEEE International Conference on Digital Information Management- ICDIM'10
Lakehead University – Thunder Bay - Ontario – Canada – July 5-8, 2010


Workshop website:

We invite you to submit a paper to CMMSE'2010 which will be held in Thunder BayAnn, Ontario, Canada on July 5-8, 2010.

CMMSE'2010 is an International Workshop covering a wide range of topics in Context Modeling and Management for Smart Environments. CMMSE'2010 in conjunction with ICDIM'2010 provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to exchange leading-edge research in the dynamic field of ubiquitous computing, and context-aware computing in particular. Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

· Context modeling approaches in smart environments;
· Context management approaches in smart environments;
· Context reasoning in smart environments;
· Hybrid context models;
· Context discovery in smart environments;
· Context reuse in smart environments;
· Advanced issues in context modeling (imperfections, ambiguity and incompleteness)
· Context information query;
· Distribution of context information;
· Scalability, integration and reuse of context models;
· Interoperability of context modeling approaches;
· Security and privacy of context information
· Experiences using context models and reasoning to build smart environments.
· Ontology-based approaches to context modeling and reasoning
· Evaluation of context models
· Context Modeling Languages and middleware
· Semantics and expressiveness of context models
· Domain specific context models (context-awareness in e-learning, e-commerce, etc)
· Uncertainty modeling and management of context information

The proceedings of the Workshop will be published by IEEE Computer Society and indexed by IEEE Xplore. Extended version of selected papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Emerging Technologies In Web Intelligence JETWI . The Workshop chair is a guest editor for this special Issue on “Context-Aware Services for Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems”.

We invite contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in topics related to the workshop themes. Researchers are invited to submit papers with a page limit of 6 pages. All submissions should use the standard IEEE double-column format. Authors should e-mail their submissions to

Important Dates:

Paper submission: March 15, 2010
Notification of acceptance: April 15, 2010
Camera-ready papers due: May 31, 2010

Previous Workshops


The workshop Chair have organized many International Workshops in the field of Context Modeling and Management and Ubiquitous Computing (see attached CVs). She
has also organized the same workshop in the last three ICDIM conferences. For instance, & published and eight authors attended the
Workshop, and in ICDIM’08 9 papers were accepted & published and all authors
