  *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 has 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 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 the 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:
