Meeting Description:

HCCS'20 aims to advance and promote research about how unobtrusive observation of human behaviour, in terms of cognitive, physiological, psychological, social and contextual data, is increasingly enabling new computing experiences and effective intervention opportunities. The workshop will also stimulate dialog about the implications of computational sensing for society.

Call for Papers:

Deadline extended to December 2, 2019.

Second Workshop on Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS'20) co-located with the 18th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom'20), March 23-27, 2020 - Austin, Texas, USA

The second edition of the Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS'20) Workshop at PerCom 2020 aims to advance and promote research about how unobtrusive observation of human beings' cognitive, behavioral, physiological, and contextual data is increasingly enabling new computing experiences. The workshop will additionally stimulate dialog about the implications of computational sensing for society. Traditionally, sensors have been understood narrowly as physiological measurements often captured with wearable devices. This workshop adopts a broader, human-focused view, envisioning sensing as time-evolving measurable data directly linked to individuals and, by extension, to their communities. With this understanding, sensing involves human reactions and interactions observed in spoken, written, or signed language, eye gaze, facial and bodily expressions, social networks, geospatial patterns, and other such human-generated data. Advances in multimodal human data acquisition and fusion have the potential to significantly impact all areas of human life - productivity, health and well-being, training and education, human-computer interaction, accessibility, safety and security, as well as gaming, sports, and entertainment.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Novel methodologies for collecting and processing multimodal human sensing data
- Co-sensing of multiple individuals, groups, or communities
- Detection and analysis of human social interactions
- Tracking and localization from human sensing data
- New interventions acting on human-centered computational sensing
- Fusion of multifaceted, heterogeneous, and/or incommensurable human sensing data
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms for behavioral analysis from human sensing data
- Performance efficiency across hardware and cloud contexts
- Applications of human-centered computational sensing
- Innovative visualizations and representations of human sensing data
- Evaluation metrics and methodologies
- Experimental analysis with human sensing data from real-world applications
- Privacy and ethical considerations for human-centered computational sensing
