Special Session on Location Aware Technologies and Applications on Smart Phones
With the explosion of smart phones with built-in GPS, such as Apple iPhone, Palm Pre, and Android-based phones, a large amount of the population is carrying their own networked personalized computing devices and is ready for location-based services and ubiquitous computing. Combining the Web and geo-location in smart phones is a powerful technology combination in software development today. Location-based smart phone 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 smart phone technologies and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, new GPS-enabled applications for smart phone users, GPS-less localization methods, middleware for location-based applications on smart phones, location-based information fusion and dissemination, integration of Web and geo-location technologies, and security and privacy issues in location-based smart phone applications.
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 All the submissions should describe original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts should not exceed 5 pages in double-column IEEE format. Please submit the paper through EDAS.
