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 We highly encourage novel and innovative previously unpublished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*.
