*Call for papers*
Second Workshop on Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’20)
co-located with the 18th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive
Computing and Communications (PerCom'20), March 23-27, 2020 - Austin,
Texas, USA

The second edition of the Human-Centered Computational Sensing (HCCS’20)
Workshop at PerCom 2020 aims to advance and promote research about how
unobtrusive observation of human beings’ cognitive, behavioral,
physiological, and contextual data is increasingly enabling new computing
experiences. The workshop will additionally stimulate dialog about the
implications of computational sensing for society. Traditionally, sensors
have been understood narrowly as physiological measurements often captured
with wearable devices. This workshop adopts a broader, human-focused view,
envisioning sensing as time-evolving measurable data directly linked to
individuals and, by extension, to their communities. With this
understanding, sensing involves human reactions and interactions observed
in spoken, written, or signed language, eye gaze, facial and bodily
expressions, social networks, geospatial patterns, and other such
human-generated data. Advances in multimodal human data acquisition and
fusion has the potential to significantly impact all areas of human life -
productivity, health and well-being, training and education, human-computer
interaction, accessibility, safety and security, as well as gaming, sports,
and entertainment.

Topics include but are not limited to:
* Novel methodologies for collecting and processing multimodal human
sensing data
* Co-sensing of multiple individuals, groups, or communities
* Detection and analysis of human social interactions
* Tracking and localization from human sensing data
* New interventions acting on human-centered computational sensing
* Fusion of multifaceted, heterogeneous, and/or incommensurable human
sensing data
* Artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms for behavioral
analysis from human sensing data
* Performance efficiency across hardware and cloud contexts
* Applications of human-centered computational sensing
* Innovative visualizations and representations of human sensing data
* Evaluation metrics and methodologies
* Experimental analysis with human sensing data from real-world applications
* Privacy and ethical considerations for human-centered computational

*Important dates:*Workshop paper submissions: November 11, 2019
Paper notifications: December 20, 2019
Camera ready: January 31, 2020
HCCS Workshop at PerCom 2020: March 23, 2020

*Submission and Registration:*Authors are invited to submit technical or
theoretical papers for presentation at the workshop, describing original,
previously unpublished work, which is not currently under review by another
workshop, conference, or journal. Papers should present novel perspectives
within the general scope of the workshop.

Accepted workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital
libraries (Xplore).

Papers may be no more than 6 pages in length. Authors can purchase one
additional page for the camera ready version. Papers in excess of the page
limits will not be considered for review or publication. All papers must be
typeset in double-column IEEE format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper,
with all fonts embedded. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as
well as related information, can be found at the IEEE website (

Submission must be made via EDAS using https://edas.info/N26544

It is a requirement that all the 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 conflict-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.

Each accepted workshop paper requires a full PerCom registration (no
registration is available for workshops only). Papers that are not
presented at the workshop will not be published in the proceedings.
