IEEE PhoneCom 2015: The 4th International Workshop on Sensing,
Networking, and Computing with Smartphones
Hong Kong, China, 5-6 March, 2015

Smartphones have now truly become a ubiquitous computing device, a
computer that the late Mark Weiser envisioned in his ubiquitous
computing manifesto. Many applications that could only have been
dreamed of, have now become a reality due to the high computing
resources, display and networking capabilities of smartphones. With
applications ranging from productivity, entertainment, enterprise,
social networking, communications and mixed reality, the smartphone is
the "swiss army knife" of it all. However, there are still many
untapped elements and unlimited possibilities that smartphones can
provide that have not been explored much in detail. In this workshop,
we will explore how smartphones can help enable cyber-physical
computing, that bridges the gap between the physical and the virtual
world and also enable social computing by creating mobile social
networks, social networks that are built around the interactions of
mobile phones.

The IEEE PhoneCom 2015 workshop is an international forum for
researchers and practitioners to present innovative ideas and results
on all aspects of smartphone computing, including theoretical
foundations, techniques and methods, tools and platforms, prototypes,
evaluation, practical implementations and applications. The workshop
aims to attract and bring together mobile computing, cyber-physical
computing, ubiquitous computing, social computing, wireless networking
and communications researchers along with user interface designers and
practitioners with diverse backgrounds.

The workshop will be a full day workshop. Besides research paper
presentations, the workshop will feature an Invited Talk (keynote) and
a Panel Discussion session. The workshop will be held in Hong Kong,
China in March 2015.
