including theoretical foundations, techniques and methods, tools and platforms, prototypes,
evaluation, practical implementations and applications.

The workshop aims to bring researchers, developers, designers, practitioners, policy makers,
producers, executives and entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds related to smartphone or smart
mobiles together.

IEEE PhoneCom 2014 this year will be a full-day workshop with presentations in 4 major tracks of areas: 1)
Data Analytics; 2) Technologies and Systems; 3) Content, Apps and Services; 4) Businesses and Society.

The top 3-5 papers nominated by the organizing committee will be invited to extend for submitting to an
Special Issues on Smartphone-based Interactive Technologies, Systems and Applications, ACM
Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications and Applications (TOMM, formerly known as
TOMCCAP). The workshop will also feature an Invited Talk (keynote) on some emerging trends about
smartphone. The workshop will be held in Hong Kong, China on December 11, 2014.

If you are interested in submitting a paper, please see the Call for Paper at and also attached.

FOR INQUIRIES: Yvonne Jansen <yvja <at>>

The Desktop computer is dead. Monitors sit on desks, unplugged – hosting
layers of Post-It notes or gathering dust as retro emergency low-light
mirrors. Visualization is colorful, big, tangible, nosy, interactive,
compelling and everywhere. It supports all sorts of creative activity and
is key to problem solving in education, science, government and industry.

But how?

What is your ‘imagined future’ for visualization?

We will be exploring possible visualization futures with short but rich

[SenticNet] CFP: AAAI FLAIRS special track on Artificial Intelligence for Big Social Data Analysis

Apologies for cross-posting,

Submissions are invited for a FLAIRS-28 special track on Artificial Intelligence
for Big Social Data Analysis, in cooperation with the Association for the
Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), to be held in Florida next May.
For more info, please visit

As the Web rapidly evolves, Web users are evolving with it. In an era of social
connectedness, people are becoming increasingly enthusiastic about interacting,
sharing, and collaborating through social networks, online communities, blogs,
Wikis, and other online collaborative media. In recent years, this collective
intelligence has spread to many different areas, with particular focus on fields
related to everyday life such as commerce, tourism, education, and health,
causing the size of the Social Web to expand exponentially.

The distillation of knowledge from such a large amount of unstructured
information, however, is an extremely difficult task, as the contents of today's
Web are perfectly suitable for human consumption, but remain hardly accessible
to machines. The opportunity to capture the opinions of the general public about
social events, political movements, company strategies, marketing campaigns, and
product preferences has raised growing interest both within the scientific
community, leading to many exciting open challenges, as well as in the business
world, due to the remarkable benefits to be had from marketing and financial
market prediction.

The main aim of this Special Track is to explore the new frontiers of big data
computing for opinion mining and sentiment analysis through machine learning
techniques, knowledge-based systems, adaptive and transfer learning, in order to
more efficiently retrieve and extract social information from the Web.

CFP: First Int. Workshop on What's in a dyad? Interaction and Exchange in Social Media (DYAD <at> SocInfo)

You are invited to contribute to the SocInfo 2014 Workshop below. Please 
circulate to any interested party.

What's in a dyad? Interaction and Exchange in Social Media

Workshop website:
Conference website:

Conference: SocInfo 2014  <at>  Barcelona, Spain in November 10-13, 2014
Submission deadline: September 8, 2014

A great deal of work has used computational methods to investigate the 
intensity, structure, topic and sentiment of social interactions. But 
neither information alone nor structure in isolation can be considered 
fully responsible for the complexity of social life, whether on- or 
offline. Online interactions can be conceptualized as a social exchange, 
and also as a process through which meaning emerges through dialogue 
between the two partners, i.e. a dyad. We aim for the DYAD workshop to 
examine online interactions from a number of rich perspectives.

Invited speakers include Cristian Danescu-Niculescu-Mizil (Max Planck 
Institute SWS), Bruno Gonçalves (Aix-Marseille Université), and Carlos 
Diuk-Wasser (Facebook, Inc.)

The workshop welcomes submissions on topics related to computational 
approaches to the study of social interaction, relevant to fields as 
diverse as social psychology, behavioral economics, sociolinguistics as 
well as computational linguistics, web science, and network science.

CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS Usability Testing of Video Games: Multidisciplinary Case Studies (CRC Press)

Apologies for cross-posting.


 *Usability Testing of Video Games: Multidisciplinary Case Studies*

 A book edited by Dr. Miguel A. Garcia-Ruiz, Algoma University, Canada

To be published by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis: *


 Usability Testing of Video Games: Multidisciplinary Case Studies will
present case studies describing academic research and practicing hands-on
experience on usability testing methodologies and techniques, with the aim
of improving the human-computer interfaces of video games and players' user
experience (UX). The usability experiences will be presented as
comprehensive case studies to be used as learning and teaching materials in
video game design and development, usability, human-computer interaction,
software engineering, and related undergraduate and graduate courses. The
case studies can also be used by scholars and practitioners from the video
game industry interested in the topic.

 Writing case studies on usability should require the “coming together” of
science, technology and social knowledge in an interdisciplinary fashion,
since the field of usability is supported by a number of knowledge areas.
This book will include new perspectives from academics and practitioners
around the world on how and why usability can support the design and
development of video games. *Usability Testing of Video Games:

FoodCHI 2014
Workshop + Symposium + Farm Tour
18 – 20 September 2014, QUT, Brisbane

Are you interested in food? Are you interested in how design and technology impacts food culture? Are you
interested in a future with healthy, environmentally sustainable, and socially inclusive urban foodscapes?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, come and join us for FoodCHI
2014<> hosted by Urban Informatics Research
Lab<> at QUT in Brisbane, Australia.

FoodCHI (Food Computer-Human Interaction) brings together practitioners and academics to engage in
critical discussions about how, through design, digital and networked technologies can shape future
foodscapes. To inspire ideas and down-to-earth discussions, FoodCHI offers a hands-on design workshop
on experimental food hacking with data, a visit to local farms to investigate the root of food culture, and
stimulating dining experiences.

James Street Cooking School, New Farm

Markéta Dolejšová is an artist and food researcher from the Czech Republic. She will be running the
workshop based on the HotKarot & OpenSauce project<>. In this workshop,
participants will learn how to transform their personal stories into data, which is then interpreted
into an edible form. Here, we taste our lives by making the ultimate prototype of shared "social stomach"
representing the most profound kind of communication.
