International Workshop on Advances and Emergence in Crowd Sensing

Call for paper:


Crowd sensing is a process of acquisition, integration, and analysis of big and heterogeneous data generated by a diversity of sources in urban spaces, such as sensors, devices, vehicles, buildings, and human. With the help of cloud computing, Internet of Things, and Big Data, crowd sensing connects unobtrusive and ubiquitous sensing technologies, advanced data management and analytics models, and novel visualization methods, to create solutions that improve urban environment, human life quality, and city operation systems. Current research in crowd sensing addresses the following issues: crowd sensing as a novel methodology for user-centered research; development of new services and applications based on human sensing, computation, and problem solving; engineering of improved crowd sensing platforms including quality control mechanisms; incentive design of work; usage of crowd sensing for professional business; and theoretical frameworks for evaluation. This is opening a vast space of opportunities to extend the current networks, communications, and computer applications to more pervasive and mobile applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Real-time crowd sensing and mobile crowd sensing
  • Enterprise crowd sensing and professional business services
  • Requirements for crowd sensing and implementations
  • Adaptive crowd sensing platforms
  • Economic and business aspects of crowd sensing and incentives for crowd sensing
  • Social media, semantic web viewpoints, and crowd sensing blog platforms
  • Experience reports and studies of crowd sensing (i.e., services, testing, and measurements)
  • Survey papers and reviews on different aspects of crowd sensing
  • Theories and practices of crowd sensing
  • Use cases and applications for crowd sensing

International Workshop on Knowledge Flow and Workflow (KFWF2015)

Call for paper:


Knowledge Management (KM) is the art of transforming information and intellectual assets into enduring value for an organization’s clients and its people. KM provides people, processes, and technology to help knowledge flow to the right people at the right time so they can act more efficiently and effectively. Knowledge Flow (KF) is the process of knowledge flow between people/organization or the mechanism of KM. KM has already accompanied with all kinds of society and shows various specific forms, such as Knowledge Flow, Web Knowledge Flow, Workflow, Reference Citations and so on. This workshop solicits novel papers on Knowledge Flow, including but not limited to:

 

  • Theories and Practices of Knowledge Flow
  • Knowledge Flow Model
  • Knowledge Flow Computation Model
  • Knowledge Flow Organization and Storage
  • Knowledge Flow Mining and Generation
  • Knowledge Flow Discovery
  • Knowledge Flow Fusion
  • Knowledge Flow Evolution
  • Knowledge Flow Searching
  • Knowledge Flow Trust Measurement
  • Knowledge Flow Service
  • Knowledge Flow Support Software
  • Models and Languages for Large Scale Workflow Specification
  • Workflow Architecture and Framework
  • Workflow Systems
  • Workflow Service
  • Workflow Composition and Orchestration
  • Workflow Migration
  • Workflow Scheduling and Optimization
  • Use cases and applications for crowd sensing
