The goal of this workshop is to address the many research issues that are
still hampering the still difficult use of developing context rich mobile
applications on smartphones.  The workshop aims to attract and discuss the
sensing, networking and application issues of smartphones, and how these
can be solved by creating model, frameworks, and implementing context
engines on smartphones.  We want to bring together context computing,
social computing, and hardware researchers along with user interface
designers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds interested in
1) exploring different perspectives and approaches to modeling physical,
spatial, temporal and social context from the smartphone, 2) the different
types of applications that can be enabled from the rich gathering and
inference of context, and 3) issues of integrating the context into
application design and user interface and user interaction models.

We solicit short position papers (1-2 pages) and peer-reviewed research
papers (4-8 pages) in the IEEE conference paper style. Use EasyChair to
