[PVS] PhoneSense 2012: Call for Participation - Toronto, Canada - November 6, 2012





Third International Workshop on Sensing Applications on Mobile Phones at ACM SenSys 2012 November 6, 2012

Toronto, Canada




Program highlights:

- Keynote by Dr. Jie Liu, Microsoft Research

- 13 high quality peer reviewed research papers

- Panel discussion with leaders in the field of mobile sensing

- Advance program:



Mobile phones provide a widespread platform for deploying sensing applications. Multiple factors, including the large number of sensors available on phones with new ones being introduced in newer models, proximity to user’s immediate environment, broadband connectivity, and the potential to provide actionable information, make the phone a compelling platform for many sensing applications. The emergence of the mobile computing cloud further expands the scope of possible use cases. Sensing applications can use the mobile phones and cloud resources to sense, mine, and learn human behaviors and intentions to provide personalized feedback and persuasion. Example sensing application domains include personalized mobile information delivery, context aware social networking, healthcare, games and entertainment, education, device and environment customization, safety, and mobile business. The efficient and effective design of mobile sensing applications opens up many interesting technical challenges. The PhoneSense workshop promotes exchange of ideas among academic and industrial researchers in research areas such as sensing, mobile computing, location, energy efficiency, data management, data mining, machine learning, inference, privacy, user incentives and applications.
