What's New!


Final Program is updated!
The schedule of your presentation is found in this file! Please check it. See you in Paris!

The Conference Proceedings will be submitted to IEEE eXplore.
The iCAST2014 Conference Proceedings will be submitted to IEEE eXplore as our conference is approved by IEEE societies. We will enjoy the state-of-the-art research works at the conference and deepen discussions among us.

Special Session
We are waiting for your special session proposal for iCAST2014. The deadline of special session proposal is May 1, 2014. If you are interested in making special sessions, please send your proposal to icast14pc [at] gmail.com (please replace [at] with [@]).

Scope of iCAST


“Awareness” is the ability to be conscious of, feel, or perceive (Wikipedia). This implies vigilance in observation and alertness in drawing inferences from what one experiences (Merriam-Webster). The ultimate goal of awareness computing is to create computing systems that are themselves aware. This conference has been evolved from the International Workshop on Aware Computing (IWAC2009) in Aizu- Wakamatsu, Japan, the International Symposium on Aware Computing (ISAC2010) in Tainan, Taipei, the International Conference on Awareness Science and Technology (iCAST2011) in Dalian, China, iCAST2012 in Seoul, Korea and iCAST2013 in Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan. The conference provides a forum for researchers, engineers, and scientists for discussing awareness computing and exchanging ideas, opinions, and the latest results in this emerging new field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

A: Awareness Science:
A1: Awareness mechanism and modeling
A2: Machine learning and knowledge management
A3: Pattern recognition and image understanding
A4: Neuro-computing/perception/cognition
A5: Fuzzy logic/granular computing/rough set
A6: Agent computing/swarm intelligence
A7: Awareness ontology and semantics

B: Awareness Technology:
B1: Context/situation/background/semantics awareness
B2: Intention/emotion/preference awareness
B3: Location/position/goal awareness
B4: Power/energy/capability/resource awareness
B5: Weakness/risk/danger awareness
B6: Safety/security/privacy/trust awareness
B7: Chance/opportunity awareness

C: Awareness Related Applications:
C1: Tele-communication/ubiquitous computing
C2: Image/video/speech/signal processing
C3: Overlay/P2P networking
C4: Data/web/text mining
C5: E-business/e-government/e-learning
C6: Health/child/elderly care
C7 Smart grid/transportation/public services
C8: Device and automatic control
C9: Cloud computing/internet of things
C10: Cognitive radio
