(Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

The 5th International Workshop on Annotation of User Data for Ubiquitous Systems (ARDUOUS )
https://text2hbm.org/arduous/
Labelling user data is a central part of the design and evaluation of pervasive systems that aim to support the user through situation-aware reasoning. It is essential both in designing and training the system to recognise and reason about the situation, either through the definition of a suitable situation model in knowledge-driven applications, or through the preparation of training data for learning tasks in data-driven models. Hence, the quality of annotations can have a significant impact on the performance of the derived systems. Labelling is also vital for validating and quantifying the performance of applications. With pervasive systems relying increasingly on large datasets for designing and testing models of users' activities, the process of data labelling is becoming a major concern for the community. Even more, with the increase of pervasive applications relying on annotated data, it becomes important to develop standards and normalisation methodologies for trans!
ferability of annotated data across different applications. To address the problem, this year's workshop focuses on methods for standardisation and normalisation in annotation practices and possible roadmaps and good practices in addressing the associated challenges. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

The 5th Workshop on emotion awareness for pervasive computing - beyond traditional approaches (EmotionAware)
https://www.comtec.eecs.uni-kassel.de/emotionaware/
An important goal of pervasive computing is to integrate computer devices into the users' everyday life seamlessly. This allows context-aware applications to gather information about the users to support them in their daily tasks. A newly attractive source of information for pervasive computing is provided by mobile devices, wearable devices, and pervasive sensors able to detect the emotional state of the users. In many real-world scenarios, it is essential to use wearable sensors, embedded in mobile devices such as smartphones and smartwatches, to measure the emotional state of the user. This would help to understand how emotions influence processes such as decision making and reasoning. We aim to have unique contributions addressing this challenge and to provide a discussion space to facilitate collaboration among researchers interested in emotion recognition for pervasive computing. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

The 3rd International Workshop on Pervasive Computing for Vehicular Systems (PerVehicle 2021)

The topics include: connected vehicles, VANET, FANET, ITS, mobile and pervasive computing/middleware for/by vehicles, V2X communications, UAVs, MEC, autonomous/automated vehicles, security and privacy, and any other issues in vehicular systems and networking. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

The Fifth IEEE International Workshop on Smart & Green Edge Computing and Networking (SmartEdge 2021)
http://www.people.vcu.edu/~tnadeem/SmartEdge21/index.html
Recent studies show that the amount of data generated at the edge of the Internet will be vast, incredibly rich, extremely valuable, and becoming the key enabler for data-rich edge systems and applications. SmartEdge has taken a leading role in addressing data/systems/applications interests, challenges, and research problems of the edge. This year, SmartEdge's themes are: Intelligent Edge, and Green Edge. By integrating the advances in smart devices and edge systems with the advances in machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), the future role of smart edge systems, networks, and applications is becoming limitless and it is expected to revolutionize the future of the world within the next few years. Green Edge is a recent emerging research field that focuses on architectures and algorithms to support energy-efficient edge operation, and distributed algorithms and optimizations that make the edge a major contributor to the overall energy efficiency of the entire!
IoT ecosystem. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

The Fifth Workshop on Security, Privacy and Trust in the Internet of Things (SPT-IoT)
https://sites.google.com/view/spt-iot-2021
As the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) increases and more data are shared through the hyperconnected networks there are more concerns associated with the security of data. Furthermore, maintaining a balance between the availability of data and users' privacy, and ensuring trust are issues that require attention to encourage the adaptability of IoT applications. The SPT-IoT workshop is organized to encourage researchers and industry practitioners to come up with innovative ideas to focus on IoT security, privacy, and trust. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

This is motivated by the fact that mobile and pervasive devices are rapidly becoming platforms of choice to support the development of state-of-the-art assistive technologies to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities. Pervasive sensors, actuators, and IoT installations are able to provide key information about the environment and those who traverse it, while mobile devices enable general-purpose computing on the move, cutting edge sensing, and persistent connectivity. They are also compact, widespread and socially acceptable, and therefore well suited to provide assistance everywhere and at all times. These qualities can be leveraged to achieve ubiquitous assistance for everyday activities such as mobility, information access, interaction with the env!
ironment, or with other people. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

International Workshop on Mobile and Pervasive Internet of Things (PerIoT)
https://periot.github.io/2021/
In recent years, the Internet has become increasingly pervasive allowing people to connect anytime and everywhere to achieve pervasiveness and mobility. The coupling among mobile technology, embedded objects, and a worldwide pervasive communication infrastructure constitutes the Mobile and Pervasive Internet-of-Things. The aim of International Workshop on Mobile and Pervasive Internet of Things (PerIoT) 2021 workshop is to bring together authors from the research and industrial communities, standardization bodies, and institutional entities to meet and exchange ideas on recent research, challenges and future directions on: i) the recent advances in the area of existing and emerging mobile and pervasive IoT technologies and ii) research, challenges and future directions for IoT real-world deployments in multiple production-ready application scenarios. PerIoT is organized with two main tracks in order to properly highlight the contributions related to the two main focuses of t!
he event - 1) MPIoT Track - Mobile and Pervasive Internet of Things, and 2) IOTProD Track - Real World and Production Deployment. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

Workshop on sensing systems and applications using wrist worn smart devices (WristSense)
https://sites.google.com/view/wristsense2021
Using sensors, computation resources, and communication interfaces available on smart watches and smart bands, it is possible to capture information about the device user, perform computation to infer the user's activities and their context, and communicate these to a smartphone or the cloud. These wrist worn smart devices represent a perfect platform to conduct research on human activity and behavior. They introduce opportunities for exploring new research problems, such as efficient classification and computation on the wearable device, offloading of computation from the user's watch to the phone or the cloud, enhancement of user experience, smart notification management, physical activity sensing, behavior modeling, and data analysis. This workshop will bring academic researchers and industry experts to collectively identify challenges and opportunities in wrist based sensing and present research to push the field forward as well as practical solutions for commercial wris!
t based devices. (Paper submission: November 9, 2020)

International Workshop on Pervasive Information Flow (PerFlow'21)
http://www.perflow.org/

[DMANET] [Last day for submission][** VIRTUAL **][** 14+ Special Issues **] CFP: The 6th IEEE International Conference on Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications

CFP: The 6th IEEE International Conference on Dependability in Sensor,
Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications (IEEE DependSys 2020), 14-16
December 2020

[Last day for submission][**Virtual Conference**][**14+ Special
Issues**][Submission Deadline (Hard): 25 September 2020]

http://cse.stfx.ca/~dependsys/2020/index.html

**NEWS**
The IEEE DependSys 2020 Conference was planned to be held in Fiji, December
14-16, 2020. Given the COVID-19 pandemic and associated travel
restrictions, as the safety of people is of the highest priority, the
conference will be held virtually on December 14-16, 2020. Accepted papers
will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library after they
are presented at the virtual conference. Information and instructions on
how to prepare for a virtual presentation will be sent separately.
Registration fees for the conference will be adjusted.

IEEE DependSys 2020 conference is the 6th event in the series of
conferences which offers a timely venue for bringing together new ideas,
techniques, and solutions for dependability and its issues in sensor,
cloud, and big data systems and applications. As we are deep into the
Information Age, huge amounts of data are generated every day from sensors,
individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things, enterprises and
Internet in various scales and format which will pose a major challenge to
the dependability of our designed systems. As these systems often tend to
become inert, fragile, and vulnerable after a period of running.
Effectively improving the dependability of sensor, cloud, big data systems
and applications has become increasingly critical.

This conference provides a forum for individuals, academics, practitioners,
and organizations who are developing or procuring sophisticated computer
systems on whose dependability of services they need to place great
confidence. Future systems need to close the dependability gap in face of
challenges in different circumstances. The emphasis will be on differing
properties of such services, e.g., continuity, effective performance,
real-time responsiveness, ability to overcome data fault, corruption,
anomaly, ability to avoid catastrophic failures, prevention of deliberate
privacy intrusions, reliability, availability, sustainability,
adaptability, heterogeneity, security, safety, and so on.


=============================================================================
IEEE DependSys 2020 is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE
Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC). All accepted papers will
be submitted to IEEE Xplore and Engineering Index (EI). Best Paper Awards

TUTORIALS

There will be tutorials (to be announced) taking place on March 15, 2021.


SUBMISSIONS

Submissions can be uploaded to EasyChair:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=stacs2021

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full paper with at
most 12 pages (excluding the title page and the references section). The
title page consists of the title of the paper and the abstract, but *no*
author information. The first section of the paper should start on the
next page.

The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file (see
http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics) are mandatory; no changes
to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted. Submissions not in the
correct format or submitted after the deadline will not be considered.

The paper should contain a succinct statement of the issues and of their
motivation, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of
their significance, accessible to non-specialist readers.

Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix, to
be read by the program committee members at their discretion.

Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings
or to journals is not allowed. PC members are excluded from submitting.

STACS 2021 will employ a lightweight double-blind reviewing process for
the first time, similar to the one of ESA: submissions should not reveal
the identity of the authors in any way. The purpose of the double-blind
reviewing is to help PC members and external reviewers come to an
initial judgment about the paper without bias, not to make it impossible
for them to discover the authors if they were to try. Nothing should be
done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the
job of reviewing the paper more difficult. In particular, important
references should not be omitted or anonymized. In addition, authors
should feel free to disseminate their ideas or draft versions of their
paper as they normally would. For example, authors may post drafts of
their papers on the web, submit them to arXiv, and give talks on their
research ideas.

There will be a rebuttal period for authors between November 24—27,
2020. Authors will receive the reviews of their submissions (via
EasyChair) and have three days to submit rebuttals (via EasyChair).
These rebuttals become part of the PC meeting, but entail no specific
responses.


PROCEEDINGS

Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the symposium.
As usual, these proceedings will appear in the Leibniz International
Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series, based at Schloss Dagstuhl.
This guarantees perennial, free and easy electronic access, while the
authors retain the rights over their work. With their submission,
authors consent to sign a license authorizing the program committee
chairs to organize the electronic publication of their paper, provided
the paper is accepted.


IMPORTANT DATES

* Deadline for submissions: October 5, 2020 (AoE)
* Rebuttal: November 24–27, 2020
* Author notification: December 20, 2020
* Final version: January 18, 2021
* STACS 2021: March 16–19, 2021

Submission deadline: November 11, 2020 (23:59 Hawaii Standard Time)

The IPCO conference is a forum for researchers and practitioners working on various aspects of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. The aim is to present recent developments in theory, computation, and applications. The scope of IPCO is viewed in a broad sense, to include algorithmic and structural results in integer programming and combinatorial optimization as well as revealing computational studies and novel applications of discrete optimization to practical problems.

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of their recent work by November 11, 2020 (23:59 Hawaii Standard Time); see the submission guidelines below for more information. The Program Committee will select the papers to be presented on the basis of the submitted extended abstracts. Contributions are expected to be original, unpublished and not under review by journals or conferences with proceedings before the notification date (January 31, 2021). Papers violating these requirements will not be considered by the Program Committee.

During the conference, approximately 33 papers will be presented in single-track sessions. Each lecture will be 30 minutes long. The proceedings will be published as a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. They will contain extended abstracts of all accepted submissions. It is expected that revised and extended versions will subsequently be submitted for publication in appropriate journals.

Best Paper Award

For the second time, IPCO will present a Best Paper Award, to be chosen by the program committee.

Submission Guidelines

The extended abstract - in Springer LNCS format - should not exceed 12 pages plus references. Appendices are allowed only if they fit within the 12 page limit. Submissions not following these guidelines will not be considered. Full versions of the submitted papers freely accessible in on-line repositories are welcome.

The first page should contain the title, the authors with their affiliations, and a short abstract. The introduction should be a broadly accessible exposition of the main ideas and techniques used to achieve the results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. In particular, the introduction should convey to the non-expert why the paper should be accepted to IPCO. Submitted extended abstracts will be refereed according to the standards of top tier refereed conferences. The main acceptance criteria used by the Program Committee are the quality and originality of the research, plus its interest to people working in the field. It is crucial that the importance of the work is understood by the committee. The claimed results must be correct and new.

A paper will not be considered in any of the following cases:

It has been already published;
It has under review by, or accepted to, a journal or another conference with proceedings before the notification date;
It has a member of the Program Committee among its authors;
It is submitted after the submission deadline.

Abstracts should be submitted through the submission website at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ipco2021.

Authors must use LaTeX2e together with the LNCS class file from Springer. Please check the Springer Information for LNCS Authors for additional information; the website is here: https://www.springer.com/us/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines.
