(Our apologies if you received multiple copies of this CFP.) Call for papers IEEE Communications Magazine - Feature Topic on People-centric Internet of = Things This CFP can be accessed via the link: =20 http://www.comsoc.org/commag/cfp/people-centric-internet-things ----------------------------------------------------------------------------= ----------------------------- FEATURE TOPIC PEOPLE-CENTRIC INTERNET OF THINGS CALL FOR PAPERS Internet of Things (IoT) is designed to operate in conjunction with and in = service of people. Therefore, people can be viewed as an integral part of =20 the IoT ecosystem. Although considerable work has been done in the recent =20 past regarding IoT, many challenges have remained. In fact, most =20 technologies and solutions for accessing real-world information are either = closed, platform-specific, or application-specific. Recent efforts to =20 define IoT reference architectures, such as IoT-A, OpenIoT, SENSEI, or =20 FI-WARE, are important steps in the right direction, but they still lack =20 features that are important for people-centric applications, such as =20 adaptability, intuitiveness, and integration capabilities. So, on one hand, = =20 there is need to define an IoT architecture that goes beyond vertical =20 solutions by integrating all required technologies and components into a =20 common, open and multi-application platform. On the other hand, there is =20 need to develop a set of common building blocks, middleware and services =20 that can be used to construct people-oriented applications in an open, =20 dynamic and more effective way into smart environments including but not =20 restricted to smart cities, businesses, education and e-health. This Feature Topic solicits technical papers describing original, =20 previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another =20 conference or journal, pertaining to People-Centric Internet of Things, =20 including architectural aspects, middleware, and applications. It provides = a forum for a broad range of unsolicited high quality scientific research =20 papers that meet the criteria of originality, presentation quality and =20 topic relevance. Submissions should clearly identify how they relate to topics under =20 consideration in this special issue. Contributions describing an overall =20 working system and reporting real world deployment experiences are =20 particularly of interest. This Feature Topic will focus on several topics such as: - People-IoT Interactions - Social Network Applications to Mobile Computing - Context-Aware Applications and Services - Human in the Loop - Big Data Analysis in People-centric IoT - Cloud-based People-centric IoT Applications and Environments - Security and Privacy - Prototypes, Field Experiments, Testbeds SUBMISSIONS Articles should be tutorial in nature and written in a style comprehensible = =20 to readers outside the specialty of the article. Authors must follow the =20 IEEE Communications Magazine's guidelines for preparation of the =20 manuscript. Complete guidelines for prospective authors can be found =20 athttp://www.comsoc.org/commag/paper-submission-guidelines . It is very =20 important to note that the IEEE Communications Magazine strongly limits =20 mathematical content, and the combined number of figures and tables to six. = =20 Manuscript length (introduction through conclusions, excluding figures, =20 tables and captions) should not exceed 4,500 words. Manuscripts should be =20 submitted through Manuscript Central at =20 http://commag-ieee.manuscriptcentral.com/ by the manuscript submission =20 deadline. Please select =E2=80=9CFebruary 2017 / People-Centric IoT=E2=80=9D= in the drop =20 down menu.

The first event (DependSys 2015) was hel= d at the same place, which was of a great success. As we are deep into the = Information Age, we witness the explosive growth of data available on the I= nternet. Human beings are producing quintillion bytes of data every day, wh= ich come from sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of Th= ings, enterprise and Internet in all scales and formats. One of the most ch= allenging issues we face in achieving designed system performance to an exp= ected level, i.e., how to effectively provide dependability in sensor, clou= d, and big data systems. These systems need to typically run continuously, = which often tend to become inert, brittle, and vulnerable after a while. = =C2=A0We can observe that this trend is further stimulated by an ever-incre= asing cost pressure. =C2=A0 The focus of DependSys 2016 is to provide a forum for individuals, academic= s, practitioners, and organizations, who are developing or procuring sophis= ticated computer systems on whose dependability of services they need to pl= ace great confidence. Future systems need to close the dependability gap in= face of challenges in different circumstances. The emphasis will be on dif= fering properties of such services, e.g., continuity, effective performance= , real-time responsiveness, ability to overcome data fault/corruption/anoma= ly, ability to avoid catastrophic failures, prevention of deliberate privac= y intrusions, reliability/availability/sustainability/adaptability/heteroge= neity/security/safety, and so on.=C2=A0 SCOPE AND INTERESTS=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3DDependSys2016 will focus on emerging ideas and trends, algorithms and ap= plications, systems design techniques, platforms and tools, as well as meas= urement assessment tools in all aspects of Dependability, which include but= are not limited to the following list: (1) Fundamentals and Technologies=C2=A0=C2=A0+ Concepts, theory, principles= , standardization and modelling, and methodologies for dependability=C2=A0+= Security and privacy=C2=A0+ Anomaly detection and protection=C2=A0+ Depend= ability of sensor, wireless, and Ad-hoc networks dependability in mobile co= mputing=C2=A0+ Dependability of software defined networks (SDN)=C2=A0+ Depe= ndability issues in clouds (e.g., cloud storage, computing)=C2=A0+ Software= and hardware dependability=C2=A0+ Reliability and fault-tolerant computing= =C2=A0+ Dependability by virtualization=C2=A0+ Dependability in distributed= scheduling and resource management=C2=A0+ Dependability issues in parallel= and distributed databases=C2=A0=C2=A0+ Dependability issues in autonomic c= omputing=C2=A0+ Dependable Biocomputing, Quantum computing, etc.=C2=A0+ Dep= endable big data foundation and management=C2=A0+ Big data privacy and secu= rity=C2=A0+ Dependable IoT supporting technologies=C2=A0+ Social networks a= nd crowdsensing (2) Systems=C2=A0+ Dependable sensor systems=C2=A0+ Dependability and avail= ability issues in distributed systems=C2=A0+ Cyber-physical systems (e.g. n= etworked embedded systems, autonomous vehicle, aerospace, healthcare, smart= grid systems, and so on)=C2=A0+ Dependability issues in socio-technical sy= stems=C2=A0+ Dependability issues in database and transaction processing sy= stems=C2=A0=C2=A0+ Safety and security in distributed computing systems=C2= =A0+ Self-healing, self-protecting, and fault-tolerant systems=C2=A0+ IoT s= mart sensors and systems=C2=A0+ RFID Systems=C2=A0+ Reliability issues in l= ong-distance telemetry of distributed sensor systems=C2=A0+ Dependability i= n automotive systems=C2=A0+ Dependable computing clouds for cyber-physical = systems=C2=A0+ Dependable integration between sensor systems and the cloud= =C2=A0+ Dependability in big data systems=C2=A0+ Safety-critical systems an= d software=C2=A0+ Software system security (3) Applications=C2=A0+ Sensor and robot applications, sensor network appli= cations=C2=A0+ Big data applications=C2=A0+ Cloud computing applications=C2= =A0+ Datacenter monitoring=C2=A0+ Safety care, medical care and services, I= oT-based =C2=A0healthcare=C2=A0=C2=A0+ Aerospace, industrial, and transport= ation applications=C2=A0+ IoT Energy, smart grid, and utility applications= =C2=A0+ Scientific applications=C2=A0+ e-commerce and e-government=C2=A0+ A= ctivity monitoring=C2=A0+ Mobile sensing applications, detection and tracki= ng (4) Measures and Assessments=C2=A0+ Dependability metrics and measures for = safety, trust, faith, amenity, easiness, comfort, and worry=C2=A0+ Dependab= ility levels and relations, assessment criteria and authority=C2=A0+ Depend= ability assessment standards=C2=A0+ Dependability measurement, modeling, ev= aluation, and tools=C2=A0=C2=A0+ Dependability evaluation of parallel, dist= ributed systems=C2=A0+ Software and hardware reliability, testing, verifica= tion and validation=C2=A0+ Evaluation of fault-tolerant systems=C2=A0+ Eval= uations and tools of anomaly detection and protection in sensor, cloud, big= data systems=C2=A0+ Experimental performance of parallel & distributed sys= tems=C2=A0+ Practical experiences and prototypes SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION INFORMATION=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3DAll papers in PDF format need to be submitted electronically through the= symposium website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=3Ddependsys2016= ).

Social robots have found a number of applications in many aspects of our daily life, including, but not limited to, elderly care, therapeutic and educational purposes (e.g. therapy for children with autism), entertainment and so on. As the critical role for robots here is to interact with and assist humans in their every-day activities, the goal is to endow them with =E2=80=98social intell= igence=E2=80=99. This, in turn, would allow them to simulate the human-human interaction and communication by being more engaging and sensitive to our affective states (such as emotional states). Considering a wide variety of users, the robots should be capable of deciding what kind of services they provide. The accurate and autonomous evaluation is needed through the technology (without human operator intervention), especially if the users who are children or people with special needs. For this =E2=80=9Cuser-centred=E2=80=9D human-robot interact= ion, this requires that the social robots can learn the user=E2=80=99s emotional stat= es and be able to respond to it accordingly. Advances in the affective computing field have recently allowed us to measure humans=E2=80=99 affective states such as emotions, empathy and enga= gement from different modalities. These include audio (verbal and non-verbal vocalizations), visual (body posture and facial expressions) and physiological (heart rate and electrodermal activity) signals. While advanced modelling techniques based on computer vision and machine learning have been proposed so far to analyse human behaviour using these modalities, a little attention has been paid to analysis of affect from naturalistic behaviours as expressed in human-robot interactions (HRI). The main aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working in Social Robotics and Affective Computing, and exploit jointly the most recent advances in these two fields. The workshop is oriented towards sharing the ideas of participants with diverse background ranging from robotics, machine learning, computer vision and social psychology. The goal is to facilitate the integration of social robotics and affective computing as an emerging field. In particular, the goal of the workshop is to identify new challenges in designing and learning of social robots that are affect-sensitive. To this end, a number of topics are to be addressed: The design of social robots, including studies showing the influence of the robots design on the social interactions with humans. - The modelling of human affect from data recorded during HRI. - The fusion of different modalities (audio, visual and physiological) for estimation of humans=E2=80=99 affective states during HRI. - Applications of social robots to elderly care, entertainment, but also assistive tools for individuals with autism and/or other neurodevelopmental conditions. In addition to these, other contributions addressing the social dimension of HRI are highly encouraged. The intended audience are researchers working in the multidisciplinary area of HRI, including social robotics, affective computing, and behavioural experts from psychology and social sciences. The participants should submit full papers (up to 6 pages). The papers will undergo a peer-review process and will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The accepted papers will be invited for an oral presentation or a poster presentation at the Workshop. Topics of Interest Include (but are not limited to): Affective and cognitive sciences Affective computing Machine learning and computer vision, and their adaptation in human=E2=80= =90robot interaction Non-verbal cues and expressiveness in interactions: gesture, posture, social spaces and facial expressions Human augmentation, rehabilitation, and medical robots Robot applications in education, entertainment, and therapy Social robots that can adapt to different users Socially assistive robots Submission: The participants should submit full papers (up to 6 pages) using the IEEE conference templates https://ras.papercept.net/. The papers will undergo a peer-review process and will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The accepted papers will be invited for an oral presentation or a poster presentation at the Workshop.

The = exact nature of the role played by such participants in the design proces= s (e.g. user, informant, codesigner) and how much voice they are actually= given has been the subject of a long and heated debate in the participat= ory design community. The emerging field of Animal Computer Interaction, = which seeks to empower animals through user-centered technology, offers a= n interesting opportunity for a comparative analysis. Indeed, working wit= h animals poses many of the challenges also posed by working with childre= n, due to similarities with regards to cognitive capabilities or attentio= n span at particular developmental stages, and with regards to the design= er=E2=80=99s ability to communicate with them. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the fields of anima= l and child computer interaction to explore similarities and difference i= n the challenges they face, the methods they use and the lessons they hav= e learnt, to date, with the objective of gaining a better understanding o= f these important aspects and setting an agenda for further collaboration= and study between the two communities. We invite interested researchers to submit a short (2-4 pages) position p= aper providing a brief overview of your work with children, animals or bo= th and your thoughts on the juxtaposition of participatory design with an= imals and children.

Considering the complex analysis pipeline of the biomedical research, the bottleneck is more and more moving toward the storage, integration, and analysis of experimental data, as well as their correlation and integration with publicly available data banks. While Parallel Computing and Grid Computing may offer the computational power and the storage to face this overwhelming availability of data, Cloud Computing is a key technology to hide the complexity of computing infrastructures, to reduce the cost of the data analysis task, and especially to change the overall model of biomedical research and health provision. Grid infrastructures may offer the data storage needed to store the huge experimental and biomedical data, while parallel computing can be used fo= r basic pre-processing (e.g. parallel BLAST, mpiBLAST) and for more advance= d analysis (e.g. parallel data mining). In such a scenario, novel parallel architectures (e.g. CELL processors, GPUs, FPGA, hybrid CPU/FPGA) coupled with emerging programming models may overcome the limits posed by conventional computers to the mining and exploration of large amounts of data. On the other hand, these technologies yet require great investments by biomedical and clinical institutions and are based on a traditional model where users often need to be aware and face different management problems= , such as hardware and software management, data storage, software ownership, and not scalable costs (different professional-level applications in the biomedical domain have high starting costs that prevent many small laboratories to use them). The Cloud Computing technology, that is able to offer scalable costs and increased reachability, availability and easiness of application use, and also the possibility to enforce collaboration among scientists, is alread= y changing the business model in different domains and now it starts to be used also in the bioinformatics (see for instance the recent JCVI Cloud Bio-Linux initiative) and biomedical domains. However, many problems remain to be solved, such as availability and safety of the data, privacy-related issues, availability of software platforms for rapid deployment, execution and billing of biomedical applications. The goal of ParBio 2016 is to bring together scientists in the fields of high performance and cloud computing, computational biology and medicine, to discuss, among the others, the organization of large scale biological and biomedical databases, the parallel/service-based implementation of bioinformatics and biomedical applications, and problems and opportunitie= s of moving biomedical and health applications on the cloud. The workshop will focus on research issues, problems and opportunities of moving biomedical and health applications on the cloud, as well as on the opportunity to define guidelines and minimum requirements for a Biomedica= l Cloud. Moreover, the workshop will discuss about parallel and distributed management and analysis of molecular and clinical data, that more and mor= e need to be integrated and analyzed in a joint way. TOPICS OF INTEREST The main themes and research topics will regard the applications of parallel and high performance computing to biology and medicine, as well as Cloud Computing opportunities and problems for bioinformatics and biomedical applications - Large scale biological and biomedical databases - Data integration and ontologies in biology and medicine - Integration and analysis of molecular and clinical data - Parallel bioinformatics algorithms - Parallel visualization and exploration of omics and clinical data - Parallel visualization and analysis of biomedical images - Computing environments for large scale collaboration - Scientific workflows in bioinformatics and biomedicine - Emerging architectures and programming models for bioinformatics and biomedicine - Parallel processing of bio-signals - Modeling and simulation of complex biological processes - Cloud Computing for bioinformatics and biomedicine - Cloud Computing for health systems - Privacy issues for Cloud-based biomedical applications - Services for bioinformatics and biomedicine - Grid Computing for bioinformatics and biomedicine - Peer-To-Peer Computing for bioinformatics and biomedicine PROGRAM The workshop will take place on October 2nd, 2016 It is scheduled as half-day. The program is not available yet.

In this domain, there are considerably more complicated scenarios than finding the best product for a user. Planning a vacation usually involves searching for a set of products that are interconnected (e.g. means of transportation, lodging, attractions etc.), with a rather limited availability, and where contextual aspects may have a major impact (spatiotemporal context, social context, environmental context). In addition and most importantly, products are emotionally "loaded" and therefore decision taking is not based on rational and objective criteria (i.e., system 2 thinking). As such, providing the right information to visitors of a tourism site at the right time about the site itself and various services nearby is challenging. Additionally and in contrast to many other domains, information providers are normally SMEs and do not have full information about available opportunities. Moreover, there is no single, standard format to house this information. Thus, given this diversity, building effective recommendation systems within the tourism domain is extremely challenging. The rapid development of information and communication technologies (ICT) in general and the Web in particular, has transformed the tourism domain whereby travellers no longer rely on travel agents/agencies. Indeed, recent studies indicate that they are now active in searching for information and composing their vacation packages according to their specific preferences. When onsite, they search for freely available information about the site itself rather than renting a visitor guide that may be available, but considered to be expensive and sometimes outdated. However, like in many other cases, the blessing of the web comes with a curse - the curse of information overload. Recommender systems were suggested as a practical tool for overcoming this information overload. However, the tourism domain is substantially more complicated, and as such, creates huge challenges for those designing tourism focused recommender systems. This workshop is focused on tourism will provide an opportunity for RecSys participants to discuss specific issues of interest. We also hope to attract additional, domain specific professionals that initially might not consider attending RecSys. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in the tourism recommendation domain, in order to look at the challenges from the point of view of the user interactions as well as from the point of view of service providers and from the points of view of additional stakeholders as well (destination management organizations for instance). All in all, the workshop aims at attracting presentations of novel ideas for addressing these challenges and how to advance the current state of the art in this field. The primary goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from different fields, e.g., tourism, recommender systems, user modelling, user interaction, mobile, ubiquitous and ambient technologies, artificial intelligence and web information systems, to explore various practical use cases of applications of these technologies in tourist recommender systems of the future. During the workshop we aim to identify the typical user groups, tasks and roles in order to achieve an adequate personalization and recommendation for tourism applications. Important aspects and topics to be discussed evolve around (but are not limited to): . Specific applications and case studies (evaluation) . Specific methods and techniques in the domain . Novel ICT and its impact on travel and tourism . Integrating data - exploiting data from various sources, i.e., catalogues, Linked Open Data, and usage logs . Context and Mobility . Cold-Start Problem . Preference Elicitation . Emotions and Recommenders . Interaction . Interaction concepts with personal (mobile or desktop) and group (on-site public or desktop) displays . Information needs, information access (incl. visualisation) and search patterns . Collaboration, communication and sharing aspects in the process of tourist information consumption . Personalized explanations and feedback of recommendation systems . Digital storytelling, narratives, smart summaries and recommendation explanations Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to an upcoming special issue of the Journal of Information Technology & Tourism (JITT) published by Springer.
