Dear Colleagues,

I'd like to draw your attention to our 2nd DATA workshop as part of the
SenSys/BuildSys 2019, and I attached the call for paper here.

Data: Acquisition To Analysis (DATA) workshop
****Part of SenSys/BuildSys 2019****
Columbia University, New York, USA

The Data: Acquisition To Analysis (DATA) workshop aims to look broadly at
interesting data from interesting sensing systems. The workshop considers
problems, solutions, and results from all across the real-world data
pipeline. We solicit submissions on unexpected challenges and solutions in
the collection of datasets, on new and novel datasets of interest to the
community, and on experiences and results—explicitly including negative
results—in using prior datasets to develop new insights.

The workshop aims to bring together a community of application researchers
and algorithm researchers in the sensing systems and building domains to
promote breakthroughs from the integration of the generators and users of
datasets. The workshop will foster a cross-domain understanding by enabling
both the understanding of application needs and data collection limitations.

The workshop seeks contributions across two major thrusts, but is open to a
broad view of interesting questions around the collection, dissemination,
and use of data as well as interesting datasets:

*** The collection and use of data

- Challenges and solutions in data collection, especially around security
and privacy

- Expectations and norms for data collection from sensor networks,
especially those that involve human factors

- Novel insights from existing datasets

- Metadata management for complex datasets

- Synthetic data, including its generation, application, and utility

- Success stories—key properties of useful datasets and how to generalize

- Shortcomings of prior datasets—and how to address these in the future

- Position papers on policies and norms from experimental design through
data management and use are explicitly welcomed.

*** New and interesting datasets, including but not limited to:

- Shopping-related sensing data

- Animal-related data or sensed data

- Anonymized health, or synthetic health-related data

- Indoor localization, especially unprocessed/unfiltered physical layer

- Smart building, occupancy, motion data, energy, human comfort, vibration,

- Vehicular, GPS, cellular, or wifi traces

- Reproductions of prior work that validate, refute, or enhance results

To enable the longevity of submitted datasets, we plan on providing a
central location where a repository for the data, and information about the
data can be archived for at least 5 years.

****Submission Guideline****

Submissions may range from 1-5 pages in PDF format, excluding references,
using the standard ACM conference template. Submissions are strongly
encouraged to use only as much space as needed to clearly convey the
significance of the work—we fully expect many submissions, especially
datasets, to use only 1-2 pages, but wish to allow those interested in
fully elucidating positions on data collection and use or insights from
reproducibility efforts ample space to do so. Submissions should use only
as much space as necessary to clearly convey their ideas and contributions.

Dataset submissions should prefix paper titles with “Dataset: “ and must
include a description of the dataset as well a reasonable accompanying data
sample. Once accepted, a full described dataset must be shared to a public
repository by the camera ready deadline. Issues on licenses will be
resolved by generally following the procedure similar to CRAWDAD (
https://crawdad.org/joinup.html) and special treatments, if needed, will be
discussed separately with the TPC chairs.

Each accepted submission is required to have at least one author attend the
workshop and present to the workshop attendees.

****Important Dates****

Submission deadline: August 2nd, 2019, 11:59:59 pm AOE, submit HERE
