Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on Understanding Situations Through Multimodal Sensing (uSitu’16)
Co-located with the 17th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking
Singapore Management University, Singapore, January 4-7, 2016

The uSitu’16 invites submission of previously unpublished full papers on recent developments or visionary approaches to utilize social sensing approaches to better understand environments. The workshop aims to draw together academics and professionals of all disciplines and backgrounds to discuss the key problems in these areas, and explore methodologies, technologies and tools for addressing them.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
· Social, physical, participatory, and pervasive sensing for situational understanding
· Information credibility and relevancy for QoI and VoI
· Stream reasoning for efficient reasoning
· Distributed and multimodal fusion for insight generation
· Detecting and reasoning about conflicts in information
· Modelling trust and provenance in information and sources
· Knowledge discovery, representation, and reasoning for insights
· Computation at the edge to increase the local understanding
· Data-to-Decision frameworks situational understanding
· Signal processing for dynamic information networks
