Dear Colleagues,

We hope this message finds you well. We would like to inform you that the
paper submission deadline for the 2nd International Workshop on Device-Free
Human Sensing (DFHS 2020) has been extended to September 29, 2020. Please
find the full call for papers below.
We are looking forward to your contributions!

Warm regards,
DFHS 2020 General Chairs
Mostafa Mirshekari, Jonathon Fagert, Adeola Bannis


 We invite you to submit your work to the 2nd ACM Workshop on Device-Free
Human Sensing (DFHS 2020) which is part of Buildsys 2020. We
enthusiastically look forward to your submissions on sensing systems and
algorithms for device-free human sensing. The workshop will be held
virtually on November 15, 2020.

Call for Papers: Second International Workshop on Device-Free Human Sensing
- part of Buildsys 2020 -

The advent of human sensing has enabled many applications in smart
buildings and cities, including healthcare, energy management, and
marketing. Considerable work has been done in the recent past to sense
humans using devices which they carry or wear, such as smartphones and
wearables. These approaches, although potentially accurate, have high
installation and maintenance requirements which limit their applications in
some real-life scenarios. For example, in eldercare monitoring, requiring
the elderly to wear or carry a device at all times is an important
limitation. This calls for research for device-free human sensing.
Specifically, we need to 1) develop device-free sensing hardware and 2)
design data-driven, physics-based, or physics-guided data-driven algorithms
to extract meaningful information about human status, activities, and
behavioral patterns.

This full-day workshop solicits technical papers describing original,
previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another
conference or journal, pertaining to Device-Free Human Sensing, including
sensing systems and algorithms. It provides a forum for a broad range of
unsolicited high-quality scientific research papers that meet the criteria
of originality, presentation quality, and topic relevance. Submissions
should clearly identify how they relate to topics under consideration in
this workshop. Contributions describing an overall working system and
reporting real-world deployment experiences are particularly of interest.

Device-free topics of interest include but not limited to:

~ Indoor occupant localization/navigation
~ User identification
~ User authentication
~ Indoor activity recognition
~ Occupancy estimation
~ Occupant health monitoring
~ Occupant and Customer behaviour tracking
~ Mood and emotion assessment
~ Human-Building and Human-Computer interaction
~ Human sensing in hazardous environment
~ In-vehicle people health, mood, and emotion monitoring
~ New platform or sensing modalities for device-free human sensing
~ Device-free heterogeneous sensing
~ Learning algorithms and models for perception, understanding, and
adaptation to deployment variation

===Paper Types===

We solicit original notes papers for oral presentation (4 pages). The
shorter length of the papers aims to encourage the younger researchers and
industry experts to submit their papers in this workshop. Further, they aim
to attract novel and multi-disciplinary research topics which are not yet
fully developed and can incite discussion in the workshop audience.

===Important dates===

Submission deadline: September 29, 2020, 11:59:59pm AOE (extended)
Notifications: October 9, 2020, 11:59:59pm AOE
Camera ready : October 16, 2020, 11:59:59pm AOE
Workshop: Nov 15, 2020

===Submission Guidelines===

Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review
for any other publication. Paper submissions must be at most 4
single-spaced US Letter (8.5"x11") pages, excluding references and
appendices. All submissions must use the LaTeX (preferred) or Word styles
found here. Latex submissions should use the 'sigconf' document class.
Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions by (1)
using the "anonymous" option for the class and (2) using "anonsuppress"
section where appropriate.

===Submission Link===
All papers must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). The final
papers should be submitted through the following link:
