1st International Workshop on Contextual Computing and Ambient Intelligence in Tourism
Celebrating within the V Symposium on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence (UCAmI'11)
December 5 - 9, 2011
Riviera Maya, Mexico

People’s mobility today is central in societies and its comprehension is essential to understand the current way of life. Recently, intensive scientific efforts have been invested in better understanding this phenomenon. At the same time and linked with human mobility, eTourism represents a very active research field in Computer Science. In particular, in the realm of ubiquitous computing. The evolution of mobile devices and their proliferation in society, the advancement of communication technologies and the trend towards creating hybrid spaces (symbiosis between nature and technology) will trigger a radical change in the way persons en route, “visitors” in operative terms, interact with their environment.

In the near future most of these people will have spent a large part of their (adult) lives in the digital era. Time will continue to be an increasingly scarce resource, and occasional visitors of this kind will demand anytime, anywhere kinds of services adapted to both their personal and environmental contexts. Therefore, context-based applications will not only shape the future of tourism services, but also provide with the opportunity to better understand human behaviour in the future knowledge society.

The aim of the Workshop is to share knowledge, experience and ideas regarding the development of tourism mobile information systems; an additional goal is to encourage/facilitate innovative and in-depth analysis in order to overcome existing barriers in the design and engineering of context-aware and easy-to-use and develop ICT systems in tourism.

The Workshop will follow a format supporting in-depth discussion and collaboration of participants. As such, each session will include extended presentations (20 – 30 minutes) and time for further discussion.

Papers are invited on the various themes indicated below:

  • Middleware architectures;
  • Context-Awareness;
  • Context modeling and management;
  • Context reasoning;
  • Mobile Recommender Systems;
  • mCommerce;
  • Context-assisted search;
