HotPlanet 2013 - The 5th ACM HotPlanet Workshop

Date2013-08-12 - 2013-08-16


VenueHong kong, Hong Kong SAR Hong Kong SAR



Topics/Call fo Papers

The last decade has seen a rapid, planet-scale growth in deployment and usage of smart mobile devices, ambient sensors, smartphone applications and advanced communication technologies. This era has prompted for large-scale, planet-wide data collection, storage, processing and dissemination technologies, advancing our knowledge about human behaviour and interactions at a planetary scale. Evolution of such technologies and methodologies, in addition to the high investments in Internet of Things (IoT) deployments in Asia, has inherently led to a number of security, privacy and ethical issues as well as new systems, networking, and application challenges.
This 5th ACM HotPlanet workshop will bring together networking, wireless, mobile computing and systems research to understand the challenges ahead and advance the dialogue on topics related to large-scale measurements and big data analytics centred around individuals. It aims to attract publications on: novel data collection, data analysis and knowledge-discovery methodologies; showcasing demonstrations of innovative real-world ambitious measurement technologies, applications, and large-scale deployment experiences; innovative large-scale mobile sensing systems and big social media data and location traces analytics.
