Dear Colleagues,

My apologies if you receive multiple copies of this email. We invite you to
submit your work to the 3rd ACM Workshop on Data: Acquisition to Analysis,
which is part of Buildsys 2020. We enthusiastically look forward to your
submissions. The workshop will be held virtually on November 16, 2020.

Call for Papers: Third International Workshop on Data: Acquisition to Analysis

The Data: Acquisition To Analysis (DATA) workshop aims to look broadly at
interesting data from interesting sensing systems. The workshop considers
problems, solutions, and results from all across the real-world data pipeline.
We solicit submissions on unexpected challenges and solutions in the collection
of datasets, on new and novel datasets of interest to the community, and on
experiences and results-explicitly including negative results-in using prior
datasets to develop new insights.

The workshop aims to bring together a community of application researchers and
algorithm researchers in the sensing systems and building domains to promote
breakthroughs from integration of the generators and users of datasets. The
workshop will foster cross-domain understanding by enabling both the
understanding of application needs and data collection limitations.

The workshop seeks contributions across two major thrusts, but is open to a
broad view of interesting questions around the collection, dissemination, and
use of data as well as interesting datasets:

The collection and use of data:
- Challenges and solutions in data collection, especially around security and
- Expectations and norms for data collection from sensor networks, especially
  those that involve human factors
- Novel insights from existing datasets
- Metadata management for complex datasets
- Synthetic data, including its generation, application, and utility
- Success stories-key properties of useful datasets and how to generalize these
- Preprocessing, cleaning, and fusing datasets
- analysis and visualization of the data
- Shortcomings of prior datasets-and how to address these in the future
- Position papers on policies and norms from experimental design through data
  management and use are explicitly welcomed

New and interesting datasets, including but not limited to:
- Shopping related sensing data
- Animal related data or sensed data
- Anonymized health, or synthetic health related data
- Indoor localization, especially unprocessed/unfiltered physical layer
- Smart building, occupancy, motion data, energy, human comfort, vibration, BIM
- Vehicular, GPS, cellular, or Wi-Fi traces and remote sensing
- Reproductions of prior work that validate, refute, or enhance results
- Anonymized contact tracing, interaction and exposure notification data

To enable the longevity of submitted datasets, we plan on providing a central
location where a repository for the data, and information about the data can be
archived for at least 5 years.

===Submission Guidelines===

Submissions may range from 1-5 pages in PDF format, excluding references, using
the standard ACM conference template. Submissions are strongly encouraged to
use only as much space as needed to clearly convey the significance of the
work-we fully expect many submissions, especially datasets, to use only 1-2
pages, but wish to allow those interested in fully elucidating positions on
data collection and use or insights from reproducibility efforts ample space to
do so. Submissions should use only as much space as necessary to clearly convey
their ideas and contributions.

Dataset submissions should prefix paper titles with "Dataset: " and must
include a description of the dataset as well as a reasonable accompanying data
sample. Once accepted, a full described dataset must be shared to a public
repository by the camera ready deadline. Issues on licenses will be resolved by
generally following the procedure similar to CRAWDAD (<>) and
special treatments, if needed, will be discussed separately with the TPC
chairs. The dataset submission must submit a link to the dataset at the time of
submission. Datasets will be reviewed by an artifact evaluation committee;
please see the CFP site for details
