Advances in sensor technology, wireless communication, and mobile devices lead to the proliferation of sensors in our physical environment. At the same time detailed digital models of buildings, towns, or even the globe become widely available. Integrating the huge amount of sensor data into spatial models results in highly dynamic models of the real world, often called context models.
A wide range of applications can substantially benefit from context models. However, context data are inherently associated with uncertainty. In general, quality of context information has to be taken into account by both context management and applications. For example, the accuracy, completeness, and trustworthiness of spatial context information such as street or building data are very important for navigation and guidance systems.
QuaCon 2009 was the first international scientific meeting that specifically focused on the different aspects of quality of context data. Research in context management and, in particular, context quality, requires an interdisciplinary approach. Therefore, the QuaCon workshop aimed to bring together researchers from various fields to discuss approaches to context quality and to make a consolidated contribution toward an integrated way of treating this topic. We received 19 high-quality paper submissions by researchers from Europe, USA, and Asia. The International Program Committee selected 11 papers for presentation at the workshop. Additionally, five invited contributions by internationally renowned experts in the field were included in the workshop program. The presentations at the workshop showed many facets of quality of context from different research fields including context data management, spatial models, context reasoning, privacy, and system frameworks. The lively discussions underlined the great interest in this topic and in particular led to a deeper understanding of the relations between the various aspects of quality of context.
The success of QuaCon 2009 was the result of a team effort. We are grateful to the members of the Program Committee and the external reviewers for their thorough and timely reviews as well as to the authors for their high-quality submissions and interesting talks. We would like to extend special thanks to our invited speakers for their excellent and inspiring keynotes. Finally, we wish to thank all persons involved in the organization of the QuaCon 2009 workshop who did really a great job.
