Call for Papers: LDC 2019 - International Workshop on Longitudinal Data Collection

in conjunction with ACM UbiComp 2019 (London, UK)
June 14, 2019 - Submission Deadline
September 9 or 10, 2019 - Workshop Date

Workshop Motivation and Goals
Individuals increasingly use mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous devices capable of unobtrusive collection of vast amounts of scientifically-rich human subject personal data over long periods (months to years), and in the context of their daily life. However, numerous human and technological factors challenge longitudinal data collection, often limiting research studies to very short data collection periods (days to weeks), spawning recruitment biases and affecting participant retention over time. This workshop is designed to bring together researchers involved in longitudinal data collection studies to foster an insightful exchange of ideas, experiences, and discoveries to improve the studies’ reliability, validity, and perceived meaning of longitudinal mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous data collection for the participants.

The workshop offers a professional space for researchers to share ideas, approaches, methods, tools, frameworks, and other insights that enable the collection of reliable and valid longitudinal mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous data. We aim:

• To present and discuss state of the art methods for longitudinal mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous data collection in human subject studies.
• To discuss ideas to minimize participants’ burden while maximizing their retention in studies contributing relevant data to support study results that will create value for researchers and participants alike.
• At mapping the challenges into the implications for the design of human subject studies that will drive this line of research in the coming years.
• To foster collaboration among researchers working in this area.

The workshop welcomes contributions and discussions focused on the methods, tools, and frameworks for collection, analysis, and interpretation of human subjects’ mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous data obtained over long periods:

• Elaboration on human, technological, and other factors influencing the design and execution of human longitudinal data collection.
• Approaches that increase the quality of mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous data collected as part of scientific studies or identify participant groups likely to exhibit compliance.
• Methodologies to assess and improve retention for a representative sample of participants and specific metrics, e.g., engagement, interruptions, consistency, or time to abandonment.
• Techniques or methods for the analyses of the representatives and quality of collected longitudinal mobile, wearable, and ubiquitous data.
• Novel findings and lessons learned from past or existing longitudinal data collection studies conducted in the user’s context, implying qualitative, quantitative, or mixed analyses.
