IEEE HotPOST 2020 - 12th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Pervasive Mobile and Online Social Networking
(co-located with INFOCOM 2020)
April 27, 2020, Beijing, China 

Call for Papers
     Mobile devices have become an imperative component of everyday life, and their use will only become more intensive in the foreseeable future. Bell Labs recently predicts that, by 2020, the consumption demand for digital content and services on mobile and portable devices will see a global average increase of 30 to 45 times from 2014 levels – with some markets experiencing as much as a 98-fold jump. This huge demand stimulates multiple technology developments such as mobile edge computing, Internet of things, wearables, and crowdsourcing. It also brings into focus the need for usable security mechanisms that scale. Meanwhile, as a fundamental part of numerous services including messaging, gaming, advertising, recommending, commercing, and content sharing, social networking needs to be provisioned and used via mobile devices in any place at any time. From 2016 onwards, Facebook had around one billion monthly active users who accessed Facebook via only mobile devices. Utilizing the emerging mobile technologies to enable pervasive and enriched social interactions has become a vital trend. The 12th Workshop on Hot Topics in Pervasive mObile Social neTworking (HotPOST 2020) aims to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners who work on mobile computing, social networks, and the intersection of both, to identify new problems and discuss latest research ideas and results, especially those related to emerging technologies. HotPOST 2020 focuses on all aspects of mobile and social networking, including architecture, design, implementation, measurement, modeling, algorithms, and analysis.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:   
   - Mobile-centric social network services
   - Location-based social networks
   - Mobile edge/fog computing and networking
   - Wearable computing
   - Mobile online advertising and payment
   - Internet of Things, AR/VR, and crowdsourcing
   - Measurement of mobile systems and applications
   - User behavior analysis in mobile applications
   - Usable and scalable security and privacy in mobile systems and social networks
   - Reputation, incentives, and economics in mobile systems
   - Modeling and algorithm design for mobile systems
Authors are encouraged to submit papers describing original and unpublished research, not currently under review in other venues, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all aspects of mobile computing, social networks, or the intersection of both. In particular, innovative, early-stage ideas and preliminary results are welcome. The length of the paper must be no more than 6 pages in the IEEE double-column format, including references. The first page must contain an abstract, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s). Each submission will receive at least three independent, single-blind peer reviews from the program committee. At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present the paper at the workshop. The program committee will select one paper for the Best Paper Award.
