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
- Distributed computing on smartphones
- Green computing and communications
- Mobile software development
- Social and community intelligence
- Mobile knowledge discovery and data mining
- Intelligent mobile systems
- Context-aware services and applications
- Privacy and security
- Novel applications on/with smartphones

Paper Submission Deadline:  January 20, 2012
Author Notification:  February 20, 2012
Final Manuscript:  March 14, 2012
Workshop date: TBA but will be between June 18-21, 2012

Authors are invited to submit original papers that must not have been
submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or
journal. The workshop will accept full papers describing completed
work, work-in-progress papers with preliminary results, as well as
short position papers reporting inspiring and intriguing new ideas.
Submissions must be in PDF format and not exceed 6 pages in length.
For detailed submission instructions, please visit the workshop

All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee
and be evaluated for originality, significance of the contribution,
technical correctness and presentation. At least one author of each
accepted papers must present their work at the workshop. Accepted
papers will be included in the IEEE ICDCS 2012 Workshops proceedings
published by IEEE Computer Society Press (placed in IEEE Xplore) and
indexed by EI Compendex. Extended versions of selected best papers
will be considered for publication in special issues of SCI-index
international journals.
