Call for Papers

1st International Workshop on Pervasive Urban Crowdsensing Architectures and Applications (PUCAA)
(in conjunction with Ubicomp 2013)
September 8-21, 2013, Zurich, Switzerland.

Important Dates:
Paper Submission: May 31st, 2013
Author Notification: June 14th 2013
Camera-ready versions due: June 23rd, 2013

Over the last couple of years, as the community and businesses have begun to realize the power of jointly harnessing nomadic mobile sensing and selective infrastructure-based ambient sensing, we are beginning to see the emergence of a class of “urban crowdsensing” platforms that perform pervasive sensing in a more coordinated fashion. Such combined sensing opens up the possibilities for exciting new applications in a variety of urban spaces, both outdoors (e.g., crowd coordination in theme parks, public safety monitoring in major public events, public health management) and indoors (e.g., healthcare, intelligent retail in shopping malls & energy-efficient building operations).

Driven by these trends, this workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners working on urban and crowd-driven sensing. We invite original research work focusing on large or innovative crowdsensing architectures, systems and platforms and their experiences on developing crowdsensing applications impacting urban lifestyles in a variety of areas. The workshop especially solicits early/upcoming research ideas, where interactions may provide authors with valuable early feedback. The topics of interests broadly include, but are not limited to:

Data sourcing and aggregation:
o Innovative use of the sensors to capture real world phenomenon
o Energy efficient sensing
o Utility oriented sensing
o Data modeling and aggregation
o Incentive models
o Privacy concerns

System or Platform Architecture
o Data processing and analysis
o Contextual/Semantic interpretation of sensor data
o Security models
o Real-time stream computing and cloud-based platforms
o Crowdsensing middleware platforms

o Innovative applications impacting urban lives
o User interface for crowdsensing applications
o Case studies around applying crowdsensing to a particular domain, such as retail, healthcare (mHealth), transportation, governance, etc.
o Tools, technologies and programming abstractions for developing crowdsensing applications
o Cross leveraging social networks for effective crowdsensing

Submission Guidelines
·Authors are invited to submit Full Technical Papers with maximum 12 pages. "Challenges/Vision" papers and "Experience" papers are especially welcome
·They must include the authors' names and affiliations for single-blind peer reviewing by the program committee
