Sixth HotPlanet 2014 Workshop
In conjunction with IEEE MASS in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Monday, October 27th, 2014


Call For Papers

The last decade has seen a rapid, planet-scale growth in deployment and
usage of smart mobile devices, ambient sensors, smartphone applications and
advanced communication technologies. This era has prompted for planet-scale
data collection, storage, processing and dissemination
technologies, advancing our knowledge about human behavior and
interactions. Evolution of such technologies and methodologies, in addition
to the high investments in Internet of things (IoT) in Asia, has inherently
led to a number of security, privacy and ethical issues as well as new
systems, networking, and application challenges.  What are the emerging
research challenges when we think about sensing at the town, country, or
planet scale?

This 6th ACM HotPlanet workshop will bring together researchers and
practitioners in networking, wireless, mobile computing and systems
to understand the challenges ahead and advance the dialogue on
topics related to large-scale measurements and big data analytics
centered around individuals. It aims to attract publications
on: large-scale data collection, data analysis
and knowledge-discovery; large-scale deployment experiences, measurement
technologies, and applications; large-scale mobile sensing systems and
social media data analytics.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
* Scaling challenges for sensing
* Large-scale data analytics (social media, mobility traces, mobility
prediction, etc.)
* Large-scale Mobile Sensing systems
* Big Data privacy & pecurity
* Large-scale measurement methodologies
* Large-scale social sensing applications
* Large-scale virtualized sensing infrastructure
* Cloud support for large-scale mobile applications
* Incentive models for encouraging users and businesses to collect and
contribute data
* Profiling, personalization, geotargeting
* Programming paradigms for large scale data collection
* Data quality issues
* Internet of Things
* Smart energy-aware systems
* Large scale mobile application marketing experience
* Regulatory, legal and ethical issues in planet-wide data collection
