  *Second Workshop on Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’20)

co-located with the

18th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and 
Communications (PerCom'20) <http://percom.org/>

March 23-27, 2020 - Austin, Texas, USA

The second edition of the Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’20) 
<https://sites.google.com/view/hccs2020/home> Workshop at PerCom 2020 
aims to advance and promote research about how unobtrusive observation 
of human beings’ cognitive, behavioral, physiological, and contextual 
data is increasingly enabling new computing experiences. The workshop 
will additionally stimulate dialog about the implications of 
computational sensing for society. Traditionally, sensors have been 
understood narrowly as physiological measurements often captured with 
wearable devices. This workshop adopts a broader, human-focused view, 
envisioning sensing as time-evolving measurable data directly linked to 
individuals and, by extension, to their communities. With this 
understanding, sensing involves human reactions and interactions 
observed in spoken, written, or signed language, eye gaze, facial and 
bodily expressions, social networks, geospatial patterns, and other such 
human-generated data. Advances in multimodal human data acquisition and 
fusion have the potential to significantly impact all areas of human 
life - productivity, health and well-being, training and education, 
human-computer interaction, accessibility, safety and security, as well 
as gaming, sports, and entertainment.

Topics include but are not limited to:

* Novel methodologies for collecting and processing multimodal human 
sensing data * Co-sensing of multiple individuals, groups, or 
communities * Detection and analysis of human social interactions * 
Tracking and localization from human sensing data * New interventions 
acting on human-centered computational sensing * Fusion of multifaceted, 
heterogeneous, and/or incommensurable human sensing data * Artificial 
intelligence and machine learning algorithms for behavioral analysis 
from human sensing data * Performance efficiency across hardware and 
cloud contexts * Applications of human-centered computational sensing * 
Innovative visualizations and representations of human sensing data * 
Evaluation metrics and methodologies * Experimental analysis with human 
sensing data from real-world applications * Privacy and ethical 
considerations for human-centered computational sensing

_Important dates_: Workshop paper submissions: November 11, 
2019*Extended to December 2, 2019* Paper notifications: December 20, 
2019 Camera ready: January 31, 2020 HCCS Workshop at PerCom 2020: March 
23, 2020 _Submission and Registration_: Authors are invited to submit 
technical or theoretical papers for presentation at the workshop, 
describing original, previously unpublished work, which is not currently 
under review by another workshop, conference, or journal. Papers should 
present novel perspectives within the general scope of the workshop. 
Accepted workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE 
digital libraries (Xplore). Papers may be no more than 6 pages in 
length. Authors can purchase one additional page for the camera ready 
version. Papers in excess of the page limits will not be considered for 
review or publication. All papers must be typeset in double-column IEEE 
format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper, with all fonts embedded. The 
IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, 
can be found at the IEEE website 
<https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html>. Submission 
must be made via EDAS using https://edas.info/N26544 It is a requirement 
that all the authors listed in the submitted paper are also listed in 
EDAS. The author section of EDAS will be locked after the workshop 
submission deadline to ensure that conflict-of-interest can be properly 
enforced during review. If the list of authors differs between the paper 
and EDAS, the paper may not be reviewed. Each accepted workshop paper 
requires a full PerCom registration (no registration is available for 
workshops only). Papers that are not presented at the workshop will not 
be published in the proceedings. HCCS’20 website:
