[PVS] MoDeSense'12 in conj. with INSS'12- International Workshop onApplications, Systems, and Services for Mobile Device Sensing

Call for Papers

The 2012 International Workshop on Applications, Systems, and Services for Mobile Device Sensing (MoDeSense 2012)
In conjunction with The Ninth International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems (INSS 2012),
Antwerp, Belgium, June 11, 2012

A state-of-the-art mobile phone knows its location, has a capability to recognize its orientation and movement patterns, can modify its display brightness settings according to the lighting conditions, can use embedded cameras for sensing the user's activities, can communicate through vibration, sound and NFC tags, and send/receive information through wireless channels. This kind of device enables research in participatory sensing, human probes, vehicle probes, floating cars, urban sensing, co-operating sensing, to name a few branches. The increasing capabilities of portable devices including highly capable smart phones are creating new opportunities not seen before. 

Emerging and existing application domains include traffic, social networking, entertainment, education, advertisement, environmental preservation, surveillance and safety, business, and health care. Among above, real-time interaction with social networking is a promising application domain where people can share location and activity data, as well as photos and update their status through their social networking services in real-time manner. However, effective design and deployment of such applications involves addressing many research issues ranging from efficient platform design, data and image processing, storage, data mining, power management, user interface, communication of large amounts of data, and privacy issues inherent to portable device sensing. 

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from academia and industry to showcase their work and obtain feedback. The workshop expects to act as a forum for research community to discuss practical issues in providing portable device sensing applications. The workshop encourages position papers, novel ideas, early-stage research ideas, and in-progress work on system architecture, enabling technologies, and emerging applications. The topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: 
 - Applications and services for portable device sensing 
 - Platforms and middleware for sensing with small portable devices
 - Efficient algorithms for capturing, storing, retrieving, and distributing interesting patterns from sensory data
 - Participatory sensing using portable devices
 - Power management 
 - Human-computer interaction and user interfaces 
 - Data mining for data streams 
 - Camera based applications and services
 - Social networking using sensory or image data 
 - Security and privacy protection 
 - Testbeds and platforms for experimenting with portable device sensing 
 - User experiences and case studies from real-world deployments 

Submission Instruction:
The paper submissions should be up to 5 pages, in double-column IEEE proceeding format. The IEEE proceedings format can be found here: http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/authors_journals.html#sect2. The papers will undergo a review process.

The workshop will have a viewing slot for demonstrations that present the ideas in the papers. The demonstration should be a 1-2 page description of the system. 
Papers and demo descriptions must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the EasyChair submission site: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/conference_dir.cgi?a=c02a1c60d5d6.
