Mobile application usage and development is experiencing exponential growth. According to Gartner, by
2016 more than 300 billion applications will be downloaded annually. 
The mobile domain presents new challenges to software engineering. Mobile platforms are rapidly
changing, including diverse capabilities as GPS, sensors, and input modes. 
Applications must be omni-channel and work on all platforms. Activated on mobile platforms, modern
applications must be elastic and scale on demand according to the hardware abilities. 
Applications often need to support and use third-party services. Therefore, during development,
security and authorization processes for the dataflow must be applied. Bring your own device (BYOD) 
policies bring new security data leaks challenges. Developing such applications requires suitable
practices and tools e.g., architecture techniques that relate to the complexity at hand;
improved refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic languages and polyglot development
and applications; and testing techniques for applications that run on different devices.
This workshop aims at establishing a community of researchers and practitioners to share their work and
lead further research in the mobile development area.

Abstract: Surveys show that the vast majority of Internet users seek information online when they have a
medical concern.
Behavioral data generated during these searches can thus serve to provide unprecedented insights into
the health of large
populations of users. However, mining these data poses several challenges, including making sense of
large-scale unstructured
information, unbiasing the sampled population, linking the findings to established medical research,
and preserving the privacy
of users. In this talk I will discuss both the promise and the challenge in using online behavioral

[Dbworld] CFP - SIMPAT special issue on "Simulation in (and of) the Cloud" (EXTENDED DEADLINE)

Simulation in (and of) the Cloud

>>> EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 15, 2014 <<<


The recent steep growth of cloud computing, together with the high interest in the Software as a Service
(SaaS) paradigm, has led to a strong investment on the deployment of simulators on top of public or private
cloud infrastructures.

Many users of simulation tools are willing to run their simulations on the cloud for the savings that they
can obtain, avoiding the cost of building up a local computation cluster and enabling the access to a huge
amount of resources that can be rented (and disposed) in every moment.

The scope of this special issue is to present state-of-the-art research covering a variety of concepts on:
i) simulation and cloud computing, ii) simulation as a service, iii) simulation of cloud computing
infrastructures. Furthermore, it also aims to provide future trends and directions on the many
interactions between cloud computing and simulation. This special issue also targets subjects on
design, implementation and performance analysis of cloud-based simulators and
modelling/implementation of large-scale simulations of cloud infrastructures.

Papers for the Special Issue must provide substantial novel contribution, and authors must carefully
situate their work considering the relevant scientific literature. They must clearly address research
issues of Simulation in (and of) the Cloud and show the role of modelling and simulation in the
software-as-a-service state of the art. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Cloud-based execution of simulation tools
* Simulation of complex cloud environments
* Cloud computing for high-availability / fault-tolerant simulators
* Performance and cost evaluation of cloud-based simulation
* Novel service models and applications for cloud-based simulations
* Privacy, security and trust issues in cloud-based simulation
* Mobile cloud computing and simulation


Manuscripts should be submitted online through the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) at the following
link: http://ees.elsevier.com/simpat. Authors must select "Special Issue: Cloud Simulation" when
they reach the Article Type step in the on-line submission process. Submitted manuscripts should
present original contributions and must not have been previously published nor be currently under
consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers will be peer reviewed according to the high
standards of the Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory Elsevier journal.

Please feel free to contact the Guest Editors for any questions.

Call for Papers

Location has quickly moved from the next hot thing into being accepted as an important aspect of the Web and,
especially, the mobile Web. Its importance is growing even more, as mobile access is surpassing other
forms of Web usage and many players adopt a mobile-first strategy.
Location also plays a role in the form of the explicit or implicit location of resources, locations
described in content, location of users, location APIs, or mobile apps, being also used in
geospatial-aware data mining or large-scale analytics. It is thus a strong driver behind many recent
innovations and research activities.

Following the previous LocWeb workshops in 2008, 2009, 2010, LocWeb 2014 solicits submissions under the
main theme of location-aware information access as a cross-cutting issue in Web research and
technology, with subtopics related to search, retrieval, analytics, mining, extraction, mobility,
apps, services, and systems. A preference is given to work describing Web-mediated or Web-scale
approaches. The workshop is designed to reflect the multitude of fields that demand and utilize location
features and we encourage submissions that look at the topic of location on the Web from an
interdisciplinary perspective, including new approaches dealing with or utilizing geospatial information.

The main objective of the workshop is to bring together a community of researchers at the intersection of
location and the Web, serving as a unique venue to integrate different backgrounds and to stimulate the
exchange of ideas and closer cooperation. LocWeb will provide a topic-specific venue where researchers
from different fields, be it data mining, recommendation, search, systems, social media,
applications, or standards, can discuss and develop the role of location.

[Dbworld] First IEEE Workshop on Pervasive Energy Services (PerEnergy) in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2015

                     CALL  FOR  PAPERS
   First IEEE Workshop on Pervasive Energy Services (PerEnergy)
             in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2015

            Submission Deadline: November 26, 2014

           March 23, 2015, St. Louis, Missouri, USA


Scope of the Workshop

A wealth of unexplored knowledge exists in the power data collected
from smart meters and smart plugs (i.e., metering equipment for
individual wall outlets). Analysis of the data may be used to provide
context-based services (e.g., presence detection), but also serve as
the foundation for novel services (e.g. automated recommendations for
energy savings). To date, the potential of this domain has barely been
explored, although more and more energy data is becoming available due
to the increasing number of deployed smart metering equipment. At the
moment, one of the most important research challenges in smart energy
systems is thus the creation of value-added services that exploit the
information content in energy generation and consumption data in such
a way that they can inspire new functionalities and context models.

The aim of this workshop is thus to bring together practitioners and
researchers from both academia and industry in order to have a forum
for discussion and technical presentations on the recent advances in
the numerous opportunities opened up by the use of energy data in
context-aware systems. It furthermore serves as a forum for the smart
energy research community to discuss open issues, novel solutions and
the future development of smart energy management systems in general.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Novel architectures for the integration of smart meter/smart plugs
  into pervasive computing systems
- Seamless energy meter integration in the design and architecture of
  smart home/office spaces
- Applications relying on energy data including, for instance, 
  energy optimization and sustainable operation of smart
  cities, household load disaggregation, generation and load
  forecasting, and other means for informed load shifting
- Novel business models relying on energy data
- Collection, processing, and integration of energy data to improve
  the control over loads and generation (e.g., distributed renewable
- Security and privacy considerations in smart energy metering,
  including novel means to mitigate privacy and security threats
- Experiences with experimental power metering system prototypes and pilots
- Power metering testbeds and data sets for the comparison of
  household characteristics and processing approaches in a globalized
- Industrial use cases showing gaps to be filled by future research

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit regular (full) papers for presentation
at the workshop, describing original, previously unpublished work,
which is not currently under review by another workshop, conference,
or journal. Regular papers should present novel perspectives within
the general scope of the workshop.

Submissions of papers must be formatted according to the IEEE 8.5x11
conference format and must not exceed 6 pages. Papers in excess of page
limits shall not be considered for review or publication.

Accepted papers will appear in the IEEE PerCom '15 Workshops
proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press. The authors
of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented
at the workshop. Each accepted paper requires a full PERCOM
registration to appear in the proceedings (no registration is
available for workshops only).

Submissions are handled through the EDAS system. It is a requirement
that all authors listed in the submitted paper are also listed in
EDAS. The author section of EDAS will be locked after the workshop
submission deadline to ensure that conflicts of interest can be
properly enforced during review. If the list of authors differs
between the paper and EDAS, the paper may not be reviewed.

Further submission instructions can be found on the workshop web page:
