The 7th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Planet-scale mObile computing and online Social networking

Nowadays networked mobile devices have become a commodity in people's daily-?life. According to a recent survey published by Walker Sanders, the percentage of web traffic coming from mobile devices has surpassed 30% in late 2013. To serve users from all over the world, a number of global (or planet?-scale) mobile systems and applications have been established. Several new technologies, such as mobile cloud networking, wearable computing, mobile payment, high-?throughput wireless data delivery, and location?-based services, have received great attentions. In the meanwhile, by attracting more than one billion users worldwide, online social networks (OSNs) provide a new venue of innovation with many challenging and practical research problems. In particular, more and more social network systems have expanded to mobile platforms. Not to mention those large?-scale mobile-?centric social network systems, such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Snapchat, and Swarm. For both of the academia and industry, how to utilize the emerging mobile technologies to help people's online social interactions has become a viable trend.

The Seventh International Workshop on Hot Topics in Planet?-scale mObile computing and online Social neTworking (HotPOST 2015) is organized with the goal to bring researchers working on the intersection of mobile and OSN together to present and discuss their latest research results and ideas, thereby promoting the development and evolution of this area. All submissions on mobile platforms and OSNs related to architecture, design, implementation, simulation, modeling, analysis and measurement are welcomed. We highly encourage novel and innovative previously unpublished work, even reporting work in early stage.

The Second Workshop for Mobile Sensing, Computing and Communication (MSCC)

Nowadays smart phone is the main tool for us to access any kind of information from fixed or mobile ad hoc terminals. When mobile services are provided to the mass, the self-organized computing, communication, and storage services are main concerns for most of the mobile users. Specifically, organizing distributed participants sensing data as well as services in ad hoc way will need distributed coordination in sensing and computing, together with relatively low communication overhead. Because centralized information fetching and storage are vulnerable to mobile scenarios. Mobile sensing, computing and communication (MSCC) are to extend conventional functions, providing services and results to the world of future mobile applications. MSCC is fundamentally different from previous cloud based study, because it brings a pure distributed and dynamic environment for sensing, data, computing task sharing and service providing. There is little or no infrastructure can be leveraged to improve the network performance. We believe that, this topic can be sustainable, and perennial for mobile ad hoc research, because it brings many brand new challenges and even some of open problems for researchers to investigate.

The MSCC workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners in current participatory sensing, computing and communication from academia, industry, and service providers, to share ideas, experiences, and practical implementations related to new MSCC technologies and applications. Both position and working-in-progress papers are encouraged. To that end, papers are solicited from all PSC2 related areas involving the interactions or integrations of massive sensing data with advanced computing and communication solutions, including, but not limited to the following topics.

Workshop on Privacy-Aware Mobile Computing (PAMCO)

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from mobile computing and security/privacy communities to discuss topics related to the protection of privacy in mobile computing. We invite both theoretical contributions and implementation/experimentation papers. We especially encourage submissions that discuss privacy threats from emerging applications in mobile environments - e.g., location-based services, mobile apps, wearable computing, etc.

ACM 5th International Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Healthcare (MobileHealth 2015)

The ACM 5th International Workshop on Pervasive Wireless Healthcare (MobileHealth) provides a forum for the presentation of research and development covering aspects of mobile health monitoring, diagnostics and analytics that are essential for improving the safety and efficiency in health care. The goal of the workshop is to bring together medical device specialists, including researchers, developers, and caregivers, from clinical environments, industry, research laboratories, academia, and government to identify and address challenges facing the design, manufacture, certification, and use of mobile devices and data for health care.

The workshop will include presentations of experimental and theoretical achievements, innovative systems, prototyping efforts, case studies, and advances in technology related to wireless healthcare networking and systems.

MoBiData: Workshop on Mobile Big Data

The workshop of Mobidata aims to foster the exchange of new ideas in the synergy of mobile computing and big data research. Mobile big data is generally concerned with the big data generated from mobile computing devices, and using the mobile computing platforms for big data processing. The data generated by over billions of mobile devices with respect to social media data, physical analytics, user behaviors, are in large volume, velocity, variety, value, and veracity. In addition, mobile devices provide a convenient tool to store, access, process, manage, and present the data. The mobile devices leveraging the power of the cloud and other more powerful computing platforms will make the big data applications more pertinent to our daily life and more convenient to use.
