Call For Papers

The pervasive nature of digital technologies as witnessed in industry, services and everyday life has given rise to an emergent, data-focused economy stemming from many aspects of human individual and ubiquitous applications. The richness and vastness of these data are creating unprecedented research opportunities in a number of fields including urban studies, geography, economics, finance, entertainment, and social science, as well as physics, biology and genetics, public health and many other smart devices. In addition to data, text and machine mining research, businesses and policy makers have seized on deep learning technologies to support their decisions and proper growing smart application needs.

As businesses build out emerging hardware and software infrastructure, it becomes increasingly important to anticipate technical and practical challenges and to identify best practices learned through experience in this research area. Deep learning employs software tools from advanced analytics disciplines such as data mining, predictive analytics, text and machine learning based on a set of algorithms that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using multiple processing layers with complex structures or non-linear transformations.

At the same time, the processing and analysis of deep learning applications present methodological and technological challenges. Further deep learning applications are advantaged by a rise in sensing technologies as witnessed in both the number of sensors and the rich diversity of sensors ranging from cell phones, personal computers, and health tracking appliances to Internet of Things (IoT) technologies designed to give contextual, semantic data to entities in an ubiquitous environment that previously could not contribute intelligence to key decisions and smart devices. Recently deep learning technologies have been applied into toy computing. Toy computing is a recently developing concept which transcends the traditional toy into a new area of computer research using ubiquitous technologies. A toy in this context can be effectively considered a computing device or peripheral called Smart Toys. We invite research and industry papers related to these specific challenges and others that are driving innovation in deep learning, ubiquitous and toy computing.

The goal of this minitrack is to present both novel and industrial solutions to challenging technical issues as well as compelling smart application use cases. This mini-track will share related practical experiences to benefit the reader, and will provide clear proof that deep learning technologies are playing an ever- increasing important and critical role in supporting ubiquitous and toy computing applications - a new cross-discipline research topic in computer science, decision science, and information systems. With a general focus on deep learning, ubiquitous and toy computing, this mini-track covers related topics in deep learning, ubiquitous and toy computing such as:

- Data Modeling and Implementation
- Analytics and Algorithms
- Business Models
- Delivery, Deployment and Maintenance
- Real-time Processing Technologies and Online Transactions
- Conceptual and Technical Architecture
- Visualization Technologies
- Modeling and Implementation
- Security, Privacy and Trust
- Industry Standards and Solution Stacks
- Provenance Tracking Frameworks and Tools
- Software Repositories
- Organizations Best Practices
- Case Studies (e.g., smart toys, healthcare, financial, aviation, etc.)
