HCCS 2024 : 4th workshop on Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’24)
Call For Papers
Fourth Workshop on Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’24) co-located with the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2024), March 11-15, 2022 - Biarritz, France.
The fourth edition of the Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’24) Workshop at PerCom 2024 aims to advance and promote research about how unobtrusive observations 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.
* Relevant topics include but are not limited to:
- Novel methodologies for collecting and processing multimodal human sensing data, including remote/online data collection
- Co-sensing of multiple individuals, groups, or communities
- Detection and analysis of human social interactions, behaviour and habits
- Localization and proximity-detection systems
- User acceptance, quality of experience, and social impact studies
- Accessibility of human sensing technologies
- 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 responsible behavioral analysis with human sensing data
- Interactive machine learning guided by humans, with sensing technologies
- Edge and fog computing architectures for human sensing
- Applications of human-centered computational sensing
- Innovative Human-Computer Interactions based on sensing
- Innovative visualizations and representations of human sensing data
- Evaluation metrics and methodologies
- Experimental analysis with human sensing data from real-world applications
- Human-centered sensing for healthcare, industry, and social good
- Educational insights from teaching human sensing technologies
- Experiences and lessons learned from research projects focused on human-centered computational sensing
- Privacy and ethical considerations for human-centered computational sensing
- Design of human computation sensing promoting diversity.
Organizers will consider the possibility of inviting authors of selected papers accepted to HCCS’24 to submit an extended work to a Special Issue of an international journal.
* 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.
Submission must be made via EDAS using https://edas.info/N31320.
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 the review process. 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.
* Important Dates:
- Paper submission deadline: November 17th, 2023 23:59 EST timezone
- Paper notification: January 8th, 2024
- Camera Ready Deadline: February 2nd, 2024
- Registration: same as main conference PerCom 24 papers (no workshop-only registration)
