6th International Conference on Social Informatics (SocInfo 2014)

SocInfo is an interdisciplinary venue for researchers from Computer Science, Informatics, Social Sciences and Management Sciences to share ideas and opinions, and present original research work on studying the interplay between socially-centric platforms and social phenomena. The ultimate goal of Social Informatics is to create better understanding of socially-centric platforms not just as a technology, but also as a set of social phenomena. To that end, we are inviting interdisciplinary papers, on applying information technology in the study of social phenomena, on applying social concepts in the design of information systems, on applying methods from the social sciences in the study of social computing and information systems, on applying computational algorithms to facilitate the study of social systems and human social dynamics, and on designing information and communication technologies that consider social context.

The 12th ACM* International Symposium on Mobility Management and Wireless Access (MOBIWAC 2014)

The 12th ACM International Symposium on Mobility Management and Wireless Access (MobiWac 2014) will be held in conjunction with MSWiM 2014 (the 17th ACM International Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems) from September 21 to 26, 2014 at Montreal, Canada.

The MOBIWAC series of events are intended to provide an international forum for the discussion and presentation of original ideas, recent results and achievements by researchers, students, and systems developers on issues and challenges related to mobility management and wireless access protocols. To keep up with the technological developments, we also open up new areas such as mobile cloud computing starting from this year.

6th International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications (Automotive'UI 14)

AutomotiveUI, the International Conference on Automotive User Interfaces and Interactive Vehicular Applications, is the premier forum for UI research in the automotive domain. AutomotiveUI brings researchers and practitioners interested in both the technical and the human aspects of in-vehicle user interfaces and applications. AutomotiveUI'14 will address novel in-vehicle services, models of and concepts for enhancing the driver experience, driver performance and behavior, development of (semi-) autonomous driving, and the needs of different user groups.

International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC 2014)

ISWC 2014 will be held in Downtown Seattle, WA, USA from Sep. 13-17 and is collocated with the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp'14) (and is followed by the Automotive UI 2014) .

The International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC) is a conference dedicated to cutting-edge research in wearable technologies, and is the premier forum for wearable computing and issues related to on-body and worn mobile technologies. Every year, ISWC brings together researchers, product vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and related professionals to share information and advances in wearable computing. The 18th edition of ISWC is scheduled to include dedicated workshops, a juried design competition, a lively gadget show, and high-quality paper presentation sessions revealing the latest in wearable computing progress.

SASO 2014

The 2014 edition of the SASO conference series will be held in London, United Kingdom, and hosted by Imperial College London, in the week of September 8-12, 2014.

The aim of the Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing systems conference series (SASO) is to provide a forum for the foundations of a principled approach to engineering systems, networks and services based on self-adaptation and self-organization.

The topics of interest to SASO include, but are not limited to:

  • Self-* systems theory: theoretical frameworks and models; biologically- and socially-inspired paradigms; inter-operation of self-* mechanisms;
  • Self-* systems engineering: reusable mechanisms, design patterns, architectures, methodologies; software and middleware development frameworks and methods, platforms and toolkits; hardware; self-* materials;
  • Self-* system properties: robustness, resilience and stability; emergence; computational awareness and self-awareness; reflection;
  • Self-* cyber-physical and socio-technical systems: human factors and visualization; self-* social computers; crowdsourcing and collective awareness;
  • Applications and experiences of self-* systems: cyber security, transportation, computational sustainability, big data and creative commons, power systems.
  • FoCAS-Workshop @ Saso: The 2nd Workshop on Fundamentals of Collective Adaptive Systems (FoCAS 2014) takes place on September 8th.
