The 7th Workshop on Pervasive Urban Applications (PURBA 2018)
In conjunction with UbiComp 2018
12 October 2018, Singapore

**[Submission Deadline: 15 July 2018 (extended)]**

Over the past decade, the development of digital networks and operations
has produced an unprecedented wealth of information. Handheld electronics,
location devices, telecommunications networks, and a wide assortment of
tags and sensors are constantly producing a rich stream of data reflecting
various aspects of urban life. For urban planners and designers, these
accumulations of digital traces are valuable sources of data in capturing
the pulse of the city in an astonishing degree of temporal and spatial
detail. Yet this condition of the hybrid city – which operates
simultaneously in the digital and physical realms – also poses difficult
questions about privacy, scale, and design, among many others. These
questions must be addressed as we move toward achieving an augmented,
fine-grained understanding of how the city functions – socially,
economically and yes, even psychologically.

* Topics *

This workshop is the seventh in this series building upon the successful
previous PURBA workshops. It aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners to discuss and explore the research challenges and
opportunities in applying the pervasive computing paradigm to urban spaces.

We are seeking multi- disciplinary contributions that reveal interesting
aspects about urban life and exploit the digital traces to create novel
urban applications that benefit citizens, urban planners, and policy
makers. The PURBA 2018 workshop fosters discussions covering topics such as
(but not limited to):

• Pervasive computing applications for urban planning and design
• Mining of data collected from urban networks e.g. transportation, energy
• Urban mobility and geo-localization
• Multi-source urban information integration
• Real-time urban information processing
• City-related knowledge infrastructure and computational models
• Case studies and applications of mixed urban sensing and mining
• Analysis of social networks in urban space
• Middleware for mobile urban computing
• Context-aware systems for urban space
• Smart cities
• Intelligent transportation system
• Urban application demos and visualizations
• Wireless sensor networks, mobile devices, and social network sensing
• Security, privacy, reputation, and trust issues in urban computing
• Impact of pervasive technologies in urban space e.g. social, economical,
and psychological.

* Important Dates

Paper submission: 15 July 2018
Paper notification: 10 Aug 2018
Camera-ready: 17 Aug 2018
Workshop: 12 October 2018

* Submissions *

We welcome regular (up to 9 pages) and short (up to 5 pages) paper
contributions submitted as a PDF file. The workshop accepts manuscripts in
standard SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format. The accepted papers will be
published in the UbiComp 2018 adjunct proceedings, which will be included
in the ACM Digital Library and indexed by SCOPUS. Visionary and position
papers are encouraged. All contributions must not have been previously
published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All
submitted papers will be reviewed and judged on originality, technical
correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation by the Program
Committee. All accepted submissions must be presented during the workshop.
