PhoneCom 2012: IEEE ICDCS 2012 International Workshop on Sensing,
Networking, and Computing with Smartphones
In conjunction with IEEE ICDCS 2012
Macau, China, 18 - 21 June, 2012

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.

The PhoneCom 2012 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 Macau, China in June
2012, in conjunction with the 32nd IEEE International Conference on
Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2012) (

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Mobile and participatory sensing
- Ubiquitous sensing with smartphones
- Context gathering, modeling, and inferring
- Mobile ad hoc networking
- Networking and mobility issues for smartphones
- Mobile internet of things
- Mobile cyber-physical computing
- Mobile social computing
- Mobile cloud computing
