Call for Papers
1st Workshop on Cloud and Server Support for Wearable Computing
co-located with the 11th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems (MobiQuitous 2014)

We cordially invite you to submit a paper to the 1st Workshop on Cloud and
Server Support for Wearable Computing at MobiQuitous 2014.  The workshop
will be held at the 11th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous
Systems: Computing, Networking and Service (MobiQuitous 2014), in London,
Great Britain, December 2nd-5th, 2014.

Recent years have seen the dramatic increase in both the popularity
and the capabilities of wearable computers. These devices provide
unprecedented ability to track, measure, monitor, and interact with
our environment and other devices and individuals. These abilities are
augmented with backend cloud- and server-based analysis to gain insight,
detect trends, spur interaction, as well as identify and correct problems
and keep the devices operational. The rate, specificity, and timeliness of
data collection combined with the ongoing personal interaction with the
systems make the data problem qualitatively different than the existing
big data challenges. Remotely updating, monitoring and maintaining these
devices are also significant challenges for large scale operation.

The purpose of this workshop it to bring together practitioners,
researcher, vendors, and scholars from the complementary fields of
cloud infrastructure, data analytics, and wearable computers, in
order to promote an exchange of ideas, develop common benchmarks and
methodologies, discuss further collaborations and develop new research
directions related to the back-end support for wearable computers.

We seek submissions that cover various aspects of cloud and server
support for wearable computing.  In addition to submissions that deal
with performance and programmability challenges, theoretical analysis,
algorithms, and practical experience in cloud- and server-side for
wearable computing, we also specifically encourage submissions that
demonstrate or result from the collaboration between cloud and wearable
computer practitioners, scholars, researchers, or vendors.  Topics of
interest to this workshop include, but are not restricted to:
 * Cognitive computing supporting and servicing wearable computers
 * Use of cloud systems in wearable data analytics
 * Cloud infrastructure for high performance and high productivity
 * Wearable data analytics algorithms and applications
 * Collective data sharing for wearable computers
 * Data compression and storage for wearable computers 
 * Fog and cloudlet platforms for wearable computing
 * Remote monitoring and maintenance of wearable computers

Submitted papers must be no more than 8 pages in length. Authors are
required to use the ACM Double Column format for their papers (Word,
Latex). Each submission will be reviewed by the Program Committee and
authors of accepted submissions will have 30 minutes to present their
work at the workshop. Accepted papers will be included in the adjunct
proceedings of the conference. Please check the workshop website for
additional submission instructions.

Important dates:
   Deadline for paper submissions: 11:59pm AOE September 2nd, 2014;
   Notification of acceptance: October 3rd, 2014;
   Camera-ready version of accepted due: October 17th, 2014;
   Workshop: December 2nd, 2014.
