6th EAI International Conference on Context-Aware Systems and Applications

The ICCASA 2017 conference (co-located with ICTCC 2017 conference) sponsored by EAI, Quang Nam University (QNU) and Nguyen Tat Thanh University (NTTU) is a place for highly original ideas about how CAS is going to shape networked computing systems of the future. Hence, it focuses on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions which break new ground in dealing with the properties of context-awareness. Its purpose is to make a formal basis more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and students as well as developers and practitioners in ICT by providing them with state-of-the-art research results, applications, opportunities and future trends.

One of hot topics in ICT is currently undergoing rapid advancements and emerging on the spot as one of the priority research areas, whose research activities are booming recently: context-aware systems (CAS), which is primarily inspired by the human autonomic nervous system. CAS is characterized by its self-* facets such as self-organization, self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimization, self-protection and so on whose contextawareness used to dynamically control computing and networking functions.

The overall goal of CAS is to realize nature-inspired autonomic systems, that can manage themselves without direct human interventions. Meeting this grand challenge of CAS requires a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to context-aware systems. To this end, ICCASA 2017 will bring together Vietnamese and international researchers and practitioners working or interested in the intersection of approaches for supporting context-aware systems.

  • The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT
  • All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries
  • Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: Elsevier (EI), ISI Thomson´s Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI´s own EU Digital Library (EUDL)
  • Best papers will be invited to publish in the EAI Transactions on Context-aware Systems and Applications


Official conference proceedings of ICCASA 2017 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.

Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available here. All accepted papers will appear in Springer LNICST proceedings only if at least one of the authors attends to present the paper.

Selected Journal Publication:

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 Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) journal (SCIE-indexed), and EAI endorsed Transactions on Context-Aware Systems and Applications.



Please send your CV to 

We usually select reviewers based on a few criteria as follows:
  - Qualification of reviewer (PhD – depending on subject area)
  - Whether they have reviewed before
  - The number of papers they have published in their given area of expertise
  - How well those papers have been cited
  - Recommendations from other researchers/reviewers they know or have worked with

Once we approve your qualifications, you will be counted in the list of reviewers on this website. Review period will start up after the deadline of submission.
