******************* Call for Papers: SocialSens 2019 (4th International Workshop on Social Sensing) ******************

** URL:

** Paper Submission Deadline: Jan 25, 2019  11:59PM AoE **

** Workshop Location/Date:  Montreal, Canada; April 15, 2019 ** (In conjunction with the ACM/IEEE CPS Week:


SocialSens 2019 invites researchers and engineers from academia, industry, and government to present recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research on social sensing topics. Building on the previous 3 successful editions of the workshop, SocialSens 2019 stems from the observation that social networks can be viewed as new types of "sensors" that carry information on what happens in the physical world. There is therefore much benefit from an exchange of ideas between the relevant communities from physical and social backgrounds, including sensing, data fusion/mining, signal processing, social networks, cognitive modeling, computational social and behavior science, and IoT/CPS, among other topics. In particular, we are interested in efforts that combine, or point towards combinations, of advanced quantitative modeling with rigorous social and behavioral science theory. Social sensing advances the foundations of data collection and processing that exploits social and physical sources. In particular, SocialSens aims to bring both computing and social scientists together in a single forum.


Topics of interest include:

** Social sensing                                  ** Ubiquitous, mobile and pervasive sensing

** Urban sensing                               ** Participatory and opportunistic sensing

** Data reliability in social sensing  ** Privacy and security in social sensing

** Social networks as sensor networks       ** Social signal processing

** Information and coding theory   ** Information processing and knowledge discovery from sensor data

** Sensing unstructured data                       ** Cyber-physical-systems with human-in-the-loop

** Machine learning on social sensing data


Key Dates:
