EXTENDED DEADLINE: July 18, 2015

***Apologies for cross postings***
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Third IEEE WiMob 2015 Workshop on Internet of Things (IoT) Communications and Technologies (IoT – CT 2015)
In conjunction with the 11th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking
and Communications (WiMob 2015), Abu Dhabi, UAE, October 19-21, 2015.
(https://sites.google.com/site/iotct2015/)

Paper submission deadline: July 18, 2015
EDAS page: http://edas.info/N20779

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel design paradigm, envisioned as a network of billions or trillions of
machines communicating with one another and rapidly gaining global attention from academia, industry,
and government. IoT is recognized as one of the most important areas of the future Internet; enabling
ubiquitous computing among global networked machines and physical objects. Equipped with auto
identification devices such a RFID tags in addition to sensors, actuators and machine-to-machine (M2M)
devices, IoT has applications in a wide variety of areas such as smart grid, e-health, intelligent
transportation, and logistics.
The proposed International Workshop on the Internet of Things Communications and Technologies aims to
provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia, practitioners from industry,
standardization bodies, and government to meet and exchange ideas on recent research and future
directions for the IoT. The technical discussion will be focused on the communications aspects and key
enabling technologies for IoT, especially M2M communications and networking, RFID technology and Near
Field Communications (NFC). The technical topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not
limited to:
-IoT access network technologies and capillary networks;
-channel and traffic models;
-spectrum management for M2M/IoT radio communications;
-RFID, sensors, actuator technologies;

CfP: 2015 Learning with MOOCs Workshop

We invite you to submit your papers to the second Learning with MOOCs: A Practitioners Workshop, to be held
at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City, October 2-3, 2015. You are invited to submit a
one- to two-page description of work completed within MOOC settings for discussion at the workshop.

http://lwmoocs2.weebly.com/

This workshop plans to bring together educators, technologists, researchers, learning scientists,
entrepreneurs, and funders of MOOCs to share their innovations, discuss the impact on education and to
answer practical questions such as: How can we best support student learning in MOOC environments? How
can MOOCs be successfully integrated with the traditional classroom experience? For which students and
in what contexts are these courses most effective? What can we learn from the rich data streams generated
by these platforms? How do we structure the learning activities to produce data streams that better
support research and learning?

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

- Creating and teaching with MOOCs
- Novel pedagogical processes with MOOCs
- Tools for collaboration, feedback, testing and content delivery
- Best practices in MOOCs
- Learning from experiments with MOOCs (including both successes and failures)
- Metrics of success for learners and instructors of MOOCs
- On-campus use of MOOCs * Evaluation of MOOCs
- Learning analytics and MOOCs * Interactive activities in MOOCs
- Challenges facing MOOCs
- Expanding the learner community with MOOCs
- Learning research based on MOOCs
- Open content /open licensing and MOOCs

INTERPERSONAL <at> ICMI2015: The First International Workshop on Modeling Intersonal Synchrony

************************************************
CFP - Apologies for multiple copies

The First International Workshop on Modeling INTERPERsonal SynchrONy - INTERPERSONAL <at> ICMI2015

 <at> the17th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2015) (http://icmi.acm.org/2015/)

_______
SCOPE
_______

Understanding human behavior through computer vision and signal processing has become of major interest
with the emergence of social signal processing and affective computing andtheir applications to
human-computer interaction. With few exceptions, research has focusedon detection of individual
persons, their nonverbal behavior in the context of emotion and related psychosocial constructs. With
advances in methodology, there is increasing interest inadvancing beyond the individual to social
interaction of multiple individuals. This level of analysis brings to the fore detection and
understanding of interpersonal influence and interpersonal synchrony in social interaction.

Interpersonal synchrony in social interaction between interactive partners is the dynamic
andreciprocal adaptation of their verbal and nonverbal behaviors. It affords both a novel domain for
computer vision and machine learning, as well as a novel context with which to examine individual
variation in cognitive, physiological, and neural processes in the interacting members.
Interdisciplinary approaches to interpersonal synchrony are encouraged. Investigating these
complex phenomena has both theoretical and practical applications.

The proposed workshop will explore the challenges of modeling, recognition, and synthesis of influence
and interpersonal synchrony. It will address theory, computational models, and algorithms for the
