Workshop homepage: <>
Conference homepage: <>

WMSC '15 invites papers for the First International Workshop on Mobile and Situated Crowdsourcing, co-located with the 2015 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp 2015) in beautiful Osaka, Japan. The day-long workshop will be held on September 7th 2015, before the main conference. The workshop will be conducted as a single mini-track, in which each participant will present his/her workshop paper (10 minutes), followed by a short (5 minutes) discussion. The workshop will also include panel discussion and informal coffee breaks for networking with other researchers.

** Important dates (in GMT+1) **
Deadline for submissions: June 19, 2015 (extended)
Response to authors: July 1, 2015
Camera-ready workshop papers deadline: July 15, 2015
WMSC workshop: September 7, 2015

** Objectives **
The first objective of this workshop is to provide a shared forum for researchers interested in crowdsourcing using ubiquitous technologies. This includes researchers who are interested in crowdsourcing but have mainly utilised online platforms as well as researchers who could benefit from conducting their crowdsourcing experiments using mobile and other ubiquitous technologies.

We hope this workshop will make an impact as a venue for crowdsourcing researchers to join and share their knowledge, experience reports, novel applications and ideas.

The long-term objective of this workshop is to foster a community interested in conducting crowdsourcing experiments beyond the desktop, leveraging ubiquitous technologies for this purpose.

** Topics of interest **
We encourage contributions especially in the following key topics and considering a mobile or situated crowdsourcing context:

--APPLICATIONS: crowdsourcing applications that can benefit from being conducted using mobile or situated technologies as opposed to using online platforms.
--QUALITY CONTROL AND INCENTIVES: designing crowdsourcing applications that encourage truthful responses.
--METHODOLOGIES: methods and methodologies used for gathering and evaluating crowd contributions.
--BEHAVIOURS: providing an understanding of crowd behaviours.

** Submissions **
The workshop papers must be in the SIGCHI Extended Abstract archival format and between 4 to 6 pages. You do not need to anonymise the submissions. All submissions should be emailed in .PDF format to [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> with the subject line "WMSC'15 workshop submission". The papers will be peer-reviewed accordingly for their significance to the overall workshop themes by the technical program committee of the workshop.

** Proceedings **
The accepted workshop papers will be added to the ACM Digital Library and the supplemental proceedings. Furthermore, a journal article combining the most interesting contributions from the accepted workshop papers will be submitted to a future international journal issue.
