PerMoby 2016 : International Workshop on the Impact of Human Mobility on Pervasive Systems and Applications
Call For Papers
The key components of many pervasive systems and applications are already
deployed in the form of ubiquitous commercial products carried by humans.
Human mobility makes it possible for such key components to interact,
promoting cooperation and sharing of content, services and resources.
Smartphones, tablet PCs, and other personal devices act as mobile computing
elements able to gather information about the surrounding environment
according to the mobility of users. In other situations these devices
operate as mobile nodes of the computing and/or networking infrastructure,
where interaction and communication occur opportunistically.
The goal of PerMoby is to explore the impact of human mobility on the
achievement of the pervasive computing vision. The focus is on pervasive
applications, systems, and protocols where mobility plays an active role
in achieving the end goals.
Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of
human-centric applications and systems are solicited. Papers describing
prototype implementations and deployment of such applications and systems
are particularly welcome. The submission of papers on controversial issues
is also encouraged. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
pervasive systems and applications based on (or influenced by) human mobility
mobile phone sensing applications and systems
opportunistic and participatory sensing, and anything in between
pervasive systems with humans in the loop
wearable sensing systems
distributed computing approaches that rely on human mobility
impact of human mobility on wireless communication
green pervasive applications that leverage human mobility
mobility aware protocols
