This workshop is focused on modelling, processing and using QoC to improve the efficiency and usability of context-aware applications. It is part of the  CONTEXT-17 conference.

Open data, social networks and the Internet of Things are technologies that increase the availability, richness and heterogeneity of context information and contribute to an evolution of ambient intelligence. They offer new opportunities to develop more efficient context-aware applications.

The Quality of Context (QoC) varies over the time and depends on the source of the information. Symmetrically, the quality of the information required by context-aware applications may also vary according to the situation. As a consequence, in order to provide the right information, at the right time and place, with the right QoC level to the right application, QoC management becomes a requirement of new context-aware solutions. It is involved as part of middleware all along the life cycle of context information, from its production by sources to its consumption by context-aware applications.

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss about innovations, implementations and experimentations of QoC management solutions. The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

  • modelling,evaluation and processing of QoC,
  • self-adaptation of QoC management,
  • middleware for QoC management,
  • context-aware application development.
