Workshop on Ubiquitous Personal Data: PUD2012

co-located with EKAW2012

8-9 October, Galway, Ireland

Personal Data is Ubiquitous.

While our time and energy resources remain constant, the amount of information
that needs our attention grows exponentially with the advances in communications
and information sharing tools. This explains why personal information management
(PIM) is a domain of utmost importance and an active area of interest for
research and industry alike. The tools that we use to manage our personal
information have evolved over time from the pen and paper day planners to their
numerous digital replacements. The desktop used to be at the centre of the
users’ PIM universe. However, the transition is made more and more towards
mobile devices (the majority of which have Internet connectivity) and the Cloud.
As more online services and applications become available to users and gain
popularity, the boundaries between the desktop and the Web become less clear.
The desktop is no longer the single access point to personal information, but
one of many personal information sources. Together with easier access to the
information, continuous availability, hassle free backups and many other
benefits, this split also led to increased fragmentation in personal data across
multiple devices, as well as duplication and inconsistency. Desktop and online
data silos add to the ever-increasing difficulty of managing such personal
information. Social networks and online storage raise many privacy issues, and
bring up problems of provenance, trust and security. Consequently, personal
information requires more effort by the individual to synchronize, search
through and browse - in short, it becomes harder to manage.

Personal data is ubiquitous - scattered over several devices, online or offline.
While semantic technologies are already successfully deployed on the Web as well
as on the desktop, data integration is not always straightforward.
The transition from the desktop to a distributed system for PIM raises new (and
old) challenges, which represent the subject of this workshop.

The focus of this workshop series is on how technology can improve the user’s
experience and relieve some of the stress associated with managing disparate
information, online, as well as offline.

== TOPICS ==
Within the general topic of ubiquitous data, the focus of this edition of the
workshop is on privacy and security when managing personal data on multiple
heterogeneous environments, devices and platforms as well as the related areas
of provenance and establishing trust.

The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
* Privacy and Security of personal data
- Trust, Security and Reputation
- Data ownership, re-use rights
- Data sharing
- Issues of privacy and security of personal data in distributed environments
- Trade-offs between preserving privacy and providing useful functionality
- Collaboration and team information management
* Data integration
- Automatic mashups
- Synchronization and update
- Inconsistency handling
- Entity matching on personal data
* Usability
- User studies
- User evaluations
- Usage mining
- Visualization
* BIG data / small data
- Enhancing personal data with Linked Data
- OLAP and Analytic tools
- Visualization of Big Data
- Stream Data Processing
- Evaluation Technologies
* Context
- Context Modeling, Representation, Recognition, Detection and Acquisition
within Activities
- Context-aware Adaptation
- Issues of time, dynamics and information ageing
- Contextual User Profiles
* Applications
- Usage and processing of personal data in real-world applications (e.g.,
social networking, enterprise solutions, etc.)
- Project and experience reports

* 20 August 2012 – Submission deadline (extended)
* 31 August 2012 – Author notification
* 10 September 2012 – Camera-ready version
* 8-9 October 2012 – Full day workshop

We encourage full papers (up to 12 pages), short paper (up to 6 pages) and short
demo papers (up to 2 pages) describing significant work in progress, late
breaking results or ideas / challenges for the domain. Submissions should follow
the LNCS guidelines.

Papers should be submitted in pdf format to
no later than midnight Pacific Daylight Time on 15 August 2012.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings (CEUR).

In addition, the best paper describing a system or application which will be
shown during the workshop, will receive a prize.
