 aware and Positioning techniques








Service computing, Context-aware, Location aware

and Positioning techniques




Aims and Scope

The positioning techniques and navigation systems are understood as any solution that can place, locate or produce information and geographical coordinates of a person, vehicle, property or other items, particularly on the occasion of their mobility, displacement or movement. In recent years, there has been growing interest in location based services and navigation systems. However, the developing research in this area has some limitations in the composition, collaboration, cooperation and synchronization between different services. The interoperability and resource sharing between services of different organizations are primordial tasks in discovering services and in sequencing of the interactions between them.  


The fifth edition of the workshop SCLP’12 will emphasize positioning techniques and system navigation for interaction and interoperability of services including web services, services operation and management, mathematical and formal methods for specification, modeling, verification and validation of scenarios and applications.


This workshop aims to provide a forum in which to focus on location based services and positioning techniques, methods, concepts, models, languages and tools that enable the design and development of practical applications in the context of navigation systems. It aims to bring together researchers, students and professionals from various areas such as Software Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Software architecture, Mobile services Computing etc., to reach a better understanding of the relationships between them and promote their research efforts.


All Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Explore.
