CALL FOR PAPERS 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 IMPORTANT DATES: 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 SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: 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 website: 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.
