The 8th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Planet-­scale mObile
computing and online Social neTworking (HotPOST’16)
July 5, 2016
Paderborn, Germany
In conjunction with ACM MobiHoc 2016

Nowadays networked mobile devices have become a commodity in people's
daily-life. According to a recent survey published by comScore, the
percentage of web traffic coming from mobile devices has surpassed 60%
in 2014. To serve users from all over the world, a number of global
(or planet-scale) mobile systems and applications have been launched.
Several new technologies, such as mobile cloud networking, wearable
computing, mobile payment, high-throughput wireless data delivery, and
location-based services, have received great attentions. In the
meanwhile, by attracting more than one billion users worldwide, online
social networks (OSNs) provide a new venue of innovation with many
challenging and practical research problems. In particular, more and
more social network systems have expanded to mobile platforms. Not to
mention those large-scale mobile-centric social networking systems,
such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Momo, Snapchat, Skout and Swarm. For both of
the academia and industry, how to utilize the emerging mobile
technologies to help people's online social interactions has become a
viable trend.

The 8th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Planet-scale mObile
computing and online Social neTworking (HotPOST 2016) is organized
with the goal to bring researchers working on the intersection of
mobile and OSN together to present and discuss their latest research
results and ideas, thereby promoting the development and evolution of
this area. All submissions on mobile platforms and OSNs related to
architecture, design, implementation, simulation, modeling, analysis
and measurement are welcomed. We highly encourage novel and innovative
previously unpublished work, even reporting work in early stage.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Mobile-centric social network services
- Location-based social networks (LBSNs)
- Distributed mobile systems and applications
- Mobile-centric Internet architecture
- Mobile cloud networking
- Online advertising
- Measurement of mobile systems and applications
- User behavior analysis and modeling in mobile social applications
- Architecture of mobile social systems
- Security and privacy in mobile systems
- Reputation, security, incentives, and economics in mobile systems
- Cyber-physical systems
- Wearable computing
- Mobile payment
- Mobile P2P systems

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original,
previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another
conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and
development in all areas of mobile/OSN. Papers must be submitted
electronically in EDAS ( The length of
papers must be no more than 6 pages, including tables and figures. The
cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, name and
affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail
and postal address. Each submission will receive at least three
independent blind reviews from the TPC. At least one of the authors of
every accepted paper must register and present their work at the
workshop. The technical program committee will select one winner for
the *Best Paper Award* and one winner for the *Best Paper Runner-up*.
