Conservative estimates show that the wearable electronics market will
represent more than US$2 billion in revenue worldwide by 2018. This
technology's high potential is such that both big, established players
and small startups are actively involved in developing new devices,
applications, and protocols for the wearable electronics market.
Likewise, several other stakeholders, including users, mobile
application and hardware developers, network operators, content
providers, and regulatory authorities are interested in better
understanding and leveraging the capabilities of wearable devices.

This special issue seeks contributions regarding the interdisciplinary
design of efficient protocols and technologies to help implement and
provide an advanced wearable Internet. We invite submissions from a
broad range of computing areas in the context of wearable environments,

Deadline: Jan. 30, 2015- CFP: IEEE Access Special Section in Big Data for Green Communications and Computing

Call for papers

IEEE Access Special Section in Big Data for Green Communications and Computing 
Submission Deadline: January 30, 2015 Paper submission link: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ieee-access 
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Big Data for Green Communications and
Computing. With the rapid growth of data in the past few years, information and communication
technologies have made significant impacts on global environments on both positive and negative
aspects. International efforts have started to advance green energy initiatives to create sustainable
energy systems to support economic and societal development. Generation of huge amounts of data, called
Big Data, across different sectors such as banking, healthcare, retail and education, among others, is
creating the need for an efficient tool to manage this data. Conventional database management tools do
not have the capability to manage surging volumes of unstructured data. For example, more than 80% of data
is unstructured in the form of videos, tweets, GPS coordinates and emails, which means that decisions
need to be made at high velocity. Data is expected to exponentially grow through data collected via
pervasive sensors and/or the Internet. It also leads to new emerging challenges that have the potential
to create more accurate solutions for science and technologies. We believe that big data has a
significant impact on green communications and computing, which aims to provide energy-sustainable,
resource-saving, and environment-friendly solutions. But how can one leverage the use of Big Data
technology in order to become really green? For this Special Section in IEEE Access, we invite academic
and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results on new
concepts and technologies to achieve green communications and computing, as well as new ideas in big data
for green communications and computing applications and services. The contributions may present novel
concepts, ideas, models, methodologies, system design, and experiments for providing objective
comparisons between potential ideas and solutions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Big Data for green network modeling, green networking and protocols, green communication management,
green network architecture design, green data center networking and computing, green network
security, privacy, and trust, and green network fault tolerance.

2nd Call: PhD and MSc Positions in HCI - Human Media Lab, Queen's University, Canada

Apologies for crossposting.

The Human Media Lab at Queen's University is inviting applications for PhD and MSc students in
Human-Computer Interaction. The positions are fully funded for 4 years for PhD students, and 2 years for
MSc students. We are looking for outstanding students with a degree in Computer Science or a related
discipline and a strong background in HCI. 

The Human Media Lab specializes in developing and evaluating advanced disruptive user interface
prototypes. Work at the lab involves conceiving of designs, engineering and implementing hardware
and/or software interfaces, and empirically evaluating prototypes of computers of the future. Our
recent emphasis has been on Organic User Interfaces: Computers that use non-flat or flexible displays.
Prior work includes flexible smartphones (www.hml.queensu.ca/paperphone), tablet pcs
(www.hml.queensu.ca/papertab) and spherical and cylindrical form factors

As part of this project, you will be working on systems involving flexible displays and 3D printed
electronic objects, with the goal of creating user interfaces that have a three dimensional shape (see
www.hml.queensu.ca/morephone for an example). The study of the effects of haptics and the
functionality of these objects will be an integral part of the research. 

You will be supervised by Prof. Roel Vertegaal, and collaborate with some of the world's top interaction
designers, including Yves Behar of Fuseproject (Jawbone, XO laptop), the world's premier flexible
display firm Plastic Logic, as well as with top haptics engineers at industrial partner Immersion, Inc.
You will collaborate with other students at the lab in a creative, forward-looking process with the aim of
disseminating work at top conferences and in the popular press.

These positions are supported by our corporate partners Immersion, Inc. (www.immersion.com),

IUI Workshop on Interactive Visual Text Analytics 
http://textvis.org <http://textvis.org/>
Full day workshop at ACM IUI 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA

The primary goal of the workshop is to bridge the gap between machine learning, data mining, information
retrieval, and natural language processing and fields such as human-computer interaction,
information visualization, and visual analytics by bringing together researchers from both sides,
allowing us to push the boundary of text analytics. In bringing together researchers from these fields,
this workshop will enable participants to present their information, and engage in discussions.

streaming data, visual analysis of text data on mobile devices or other ubiquitous scenarios. Topics of
interest include but are not limited to:

User-adaptive approaches to visual text analytics
Coupling of ML/AI systems with visualization for text analytics
Visualization to improve ML/AI/NLP algorithms and models for text data
Coordinated visualizations of textual and non-textual data
