Nowadays networked mobile devices have become a commodity in people's daily-life. According to a recent survey published by comScore, the percentage of web traffic coming from mobile devices has surpassed 60% in 2014. To serve users from all over the world, a number of global (or planet-scale) mobile systems and applications have been launched. 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 networking systems, such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Momo, Snapchat, Skout 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 8th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Planet-scale mObile computing and online Social neTworking (HotPOST 2016) 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 We highly encourage novel and innovative previously unpublished work, even reporting work in early stage.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Mobile-centric social network services
- Location-based social networks (LBSNs)
- Distributed mobile systems and applications
- Mobile-centric Internet architecture
- Mobile cloud networking
- Online advertising
- Measurement of mobile systems and applications
- User behavior analysis and modeling in mobile social applications
- Architecture of mobile social systems
- Security and privacy in mobile systems
- Reputation, security, incentives, and economics in mobile systems
- Cyber-physical systems
- Wearable computing
- Mobile payment
- Mobile P2P systems

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of mobile/OSN. Papers must be submitted electronically in EDAS ( The length of papers must be no more than 6 pages, including tables and figures. The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address. Each submission will receive at least three independent blind reviews from the TPC. At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present their work at the workshop. The technical program committee will select one winner for the *Best Paper Award* and one winner for the *Best Paper Runner-up*.
