[Apologies for cross and multiple postings]

The 3rd IEEE PerCom International Workshop on Crowd Assisted Sensing, Pervasive Systems and Communications (CASPer 2016)
In conjunction with the 14th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2016)
Sydney, Australia, March 14-18, 2016

Dear Colleagues,

We remind you that the deadline for the 3rd International Workshop on Crowd Assisted Sensing, Pervasive Systems and Communications (CASPer 2016) is fast approaching. CASPer 2016 will be held in conjunction with the 14th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2016). We would appreciate if you could circulate this email to colleagues and relevant mailing lists.

We hope to see you in Sydney.

Best regards,

Waldir Moreira,
Publicity Chair 
CASPer 2016


Call for Papers

With smart­phones in their pockets, more than 1 billion people now have immediate access to sensing, computation, and connectivity, and this makes it possible to harness the power of the crowd to collect and share data about their surroundings and experiences on a massive scale. Crowdsensing/crowdsourcing is a novel data collection paradigm that leverages this vast mobile sensor network, expanding the scope of research endeavours and allowing civic issues to be addressed, without the need to purchase specialized sensors or install and maintain network infrastructure. Data collected using such applications may come from unexpected yet interesting and valuable sources, and may allow the data to come from previously inaccessible locations and contexts.

CASPer 2016 provides a forum for discussion, debate, and collaboration focused on ideas, trends, techniques, and recent advances in crowdsensing and crowdsourcing. We invite original research contributions that advance the state of the art as well as position papers that pose a new direction or present a controversial point of view. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Algorithms to handle, process, and visualize large-scale crowdsensing/crowdsourcing data sets
• Data integrity, security, privacy, and provenance for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing data
• Trust and reputation systems for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
• Determining and assessing Quality of Information for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing data
• Crowd­ assisted (human-in-the-loop) approaches to analyzing crowdsensing/crowdsourcing data
• Context modeling and reasoning in crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
• Incentive mechanisms for participation in crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
• Supporting crowdsensing/crowdsourcing in heterogeneous networks
• Crowd assisted pervasive systems and communications
• Novel use of sensors for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
• Energy-­efficient mechanisms for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
• Programming abstractions and middleware for crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications
• Novel large­scale and enterprise crowdsensing/crowdsourcing applications

Paper Submission

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE PerCom Workshop Proceedings. Authors will submit through EDAS. Submissions are limited to a maximum length of 6 pages and must adhere to IEEE format (2 column, 10 pt font). Templates are available via the workshop website.

Please note: as per IEEE PerCom policy, each accepted paper requires a full PerCom registration (no registration is available for workshops only).
