CALL FOR PAPERS - The 2nd International Conference on Open and Big Data (OBD 2016)

----------------------Call for Papers---------------------------

The 2nd International Conference on Open and Big Data (OBD 2016)           

22-24 August 2016, Vienna, Austria


Data has become a key asset in modern societies, economies, and governmental
organizations. Big Data encompasses various kinds of complex and large scale
information that are beyond the processing capabilities of conventional
software and databases. Open Data on the other hand can make Big Data more
useful and widely accessible. The combination of Open and Big data can
benefit users, developers, companies and various kinds of organizations to
carry out useful analysis of data pattern and trends, make intelligent
decisions, and solve complex problems that can help societies and economies
and speed up innovations.

The aim of the Open and Big Data conference (OBD 2016) is to promote the
state of the art in scientific and practical research of open and big data
and to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry,
and public sector in an effort to present their research work and share
research and development ideas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Challenges and opportunities in open and big data

IEEE Access Special Issue on Big Data

We apology for possible cross posting


*IEEE Assess is the most visible journal of IEEE, which will bring
significant citation of your work.*

*Theoretical Foundations for Big Data Applications: Challenges and
Opportunities (*

Submission deadline: March 1, 2016

It is critical to explore theoretical perspective of Big Data to
efficiently and effectively guide its applications. We have witnessed the
significant development in Big Data from various communities, such as the
mining and learning algorithms from the artificial intelligence community,
networking facilities from networking community, and software platforms for
software engineering community. However, Big Data applications introduce
unprecedented challenges to us, and existing theories and techniques have
to be extended, upgraded to serve the forthcoming real Big Data
applications, we even need to invent new tools for Big Data applications.
We desperately desire theoretical work from various disciplines, such as
statistics, machine learning, graph theory, networking, parallel computing,
security and privacy, and so on.

The purpose of this special section is to solicit the latest theoretical
research outputs for Big Data applications. We prefer survey or tutorial

CfP: CHI 2016 Workshop on Proxemic Mobile Collocated Interactions


  CHI 2016 Workshop on Proxemic Mobile Collocated Interactions

  San Jose, CA, USA, 7th or 8th May 2016
  Submission due date: 8th December 2015 or 8th January 2016 


Recent research on mobile collocated interactions has been looking at situations in which collocated
users engage in collaborative activities using their mobile devices. However, existing practices fail
to fully account for the culturally-dependent spatial relationships between people and their digital
devices (i.e. the proxemic relationships). Building on the ideas of proxemic interactions, this
workshop is motivated by the concept of ‘proxemic mobile collocated interactions’, to harness new
or existing technologies to create engaging and interactionally relevant experiences. Such
approaches would allow devices to not only react to presence and interaction, but also other indicators,
such as the interpersonal distance people naturally use in everyday life.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together a community of researchers, designers and practitioners who
are interested in exploring proxemics and mobile collocated interactions. For this workshop, we invite
people from a broad variety of backgrounds to make submissions relating to the workshop topic or any of the
goals of the workshop:

- Identify key opportunities for including proxemic interactions in the design and implementation of
mobile collocated experiences
- Investigate the ecological implications of both multi-user and multi-device interactions
