Mobile phones provide a widespread platform for deploying sensing applications. Multiple factors, including the large number of sensors on phones, proximity to user’s immediate environment, broadband connectivity, ability to use cloud resources to sense, mine, and learn human behaviors, and ability to provide personalized feedback, make the phone a compelling sensing platform. Example sensing application domains include personalized information delivery, context and location-aware services, healthcare, games, social networks, and entertainment, safety, and mobile business.

The PhoneSense workshop promotes exchange of ideas among academic and industrial researchers in research areas such as sensing, mobile computing, energy efficiency, data management, data mining, machine learning, inference, privacy, incentive modeling, and user experience design. The focus is on hot topics, position papers, novel ideas, in-progress work, enabling technologies, and emerging applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel applications
  • Personal health monitoring using mobile phones
  • Incentive models for mobile data collection
  • Mobile cloud and sensing interfaces
  • Mining large-scale sensor and location data
  • Persuasion models and personalized feedback to users
  • Privacy
  • Participatory sensing, crowdsourcing, and opportunistic sensing
  • Activity recognition, subjective sensing, and machine learning
  • Programming models
  • Deployments and campaigns at scale
  • Integration of on-phone and off-phone sensing
  • Novel mobile sensor accessories
  • Geo-targeting and location-aware services
  • Data quality issues
