HotPlanet 2016 - 7th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Planet-Scale Measurement

Workshop @ Ubicomp <> / ISWC 2016
September 12-16, Heidelberg, Germany

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, has inherently led to a number of security, privacy and ethical issues as well as new systems, networking, and application challenges.

This 7th 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 on individuals. It aims to attract publications on data collection and analysis, such as knowledge-discovery methodologies, large-scale data mining, and big social media data and location traces analytics, but also on deployment challenges, such as innovative real-world measurement technologies, end-user applications, large-scale deployment experiences, and innovative large-scale mobile sensing systems. Topics of interest include:

Big data analytics (social media, mobility traces, prediction techniques, etc.)
Mobile sensing systems
Big data privacy & security
Large scale measurement methodologies
Novel social & sensing application
Open source and virtualized sensing infrastructure
Cloud computing paradigms for decentralized analysis
Incentive models for encouraging users and businesses to collect and contribute data
Profiling, personalisation, geo-targeting
Programming paradigms for large scale data collection
Data quality issues
Internet of Things
Smart energy-aware systems
Large scale mobile application and market experience
Regulatory, legal and ethical issues in planet-wide data collection
