♦Special Session on Location Aware Technologies and Applications on Smartphonesـ
“Going Mobile!” With the explosion of smartphones with built-in GPS, such as iPhone, Android phones, and Windows phone 7, a large portion of the population is carrying their own networked personalized sensing and computing devices and is ready for location-based services and ubiquitous computing. Combining the Web and location recognition on smartphones is a powerful technology combination in software development today. Location-based smartphone applications are broad and diverse, ranging from games, travel guidance, advertisement and classifieds, to smart campus. They are able to provide consumers relevant, targeted media through their social connections and their physical location information.
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 smartphone technologies and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, new 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, and security and privacy issues on smartphones.
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 All submissions should describe original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts should not exceed five (5) pages in double-column IEEE format. Please submit the paper throughففEDAS.ف Formatting details can be found underفAuthor Informationفon the CCNC web site.
