The paper “CAreDroid: Adaptation Framework for Android Context-Aware Applications” by Salma Elmalaki, Lucas Wanner, and Mani Srivastava received the Best Paper Award as well as the Best Community Paper Award (given to the┬ápaper that contributes the most to the broader research community in terms of real data or new software/hardware) at ACM’s Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking (MobiCom) held this week. Salma, on whose M.S. Thesis research the paper is based on, is currently an EE Ph.D. student in Prof. Srivastava’s group, while Lucas is Prof. Srivastava’s former CS Ph.D. student who recently started as Assistant Professor at the Institute of Computing, University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. MobiCom is the flagship conference of ACM Sigmobile and is a highly selective, premier international forum addressing networks, systems, algorithms, and applications that support mobile computers and wireless networks. The paper describes operating system and programming language mechanisms to enable efficient adaptation of applications on smartphones efficiently to dynamically varying user context, hardware characteristics, and environmental conditions.
