First IPSoN 2011 International Workshop
Integration of Physical and Social-Network Sensing & Mining

Co-located with Digital Information and Web Technologies Conference ICADIWT 2011
University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, August 4-6, 2011.

Accepted workshop papers will be published in the ICADIWT 2011 proceedings and indexed in IEEE Xplore

Mobile devices, wearables and wireless sensor networks have been lately used to monitor and sense real world. On one hand, processing of information that has been sensed in the real world is used to detect human activities, environmental and urban state, healthcare conditions, proximity and concentrations of people, epidemic trends, network and routing planning and other natural and human-generated situations describing aspects of the real world. On the other hand, the evolution of the web in terms of user-generated content and the proliferation of online social networks have generated tremendous amount of information, describing dynamic interaction of people with each other, with their surroundings and brought together through their common interests in both, virtual and real worlds. 
IPSoN Workshop intends to provide a forum for discussions on the topic of Physical and Social-Network Sensing & Mining Integration. The Workshop will explore different challenges involved in the integration of data originated from both sources, physical and online taking into consideration (but not limited) to different research topics such as large scale data integration, participatory sensing from multiple sources, correlation of physical-digital information, geo-located and online social networks correlations, trust and security, 

IPSON Workshop will foster discussions and accept submissions on a comprehensive list of challenges; including, but not limited to:

- Mobility and geo-localization and their impact to/from social networks 
- Wireless sensor networks, mobile devices and social network sensing
- Implications to system design of integrated physical and social network sensing
- Correlation from personal & virtual group spaces and sensors
- Impacts of searching and mining the Internet of things to social networks
- Multi-source information integration 
- Search in pervasive social databases
- Models and representations of real-virtual dynamics
- Participatory sensing
- Case studies and applications of mixed sensing and mining
- Content centric networks  
- Social metrics for network operation
- Middleware for mobile, wsn and social networks
- Web dynamics and grid/cloud computing
- Security, privacy, reputation and trust issues
- Users studies and human factors in real-online combined sensing
- Applications of physical-online sensing
