MCSS 2015 expect submissions on all aspects of mobile systems for computational social science including mobile system design, system technology, application, data analysis (qualitative or qualitative) and social experiments in mobile environment, mobile crowd sourcing, etc. Submissions covering social science research in mobile computing environment are especially encouraged.

We will invite to submit papers in the following areas:

  • Design, implementation and evaluation of mobile systems for computational social science;
  • Experiment design of social and behavioral experiments using mobile technologies
  • Design and implementation of algorithms for mobile system applications
  • Architectural issues, including middleware and operating systems support for social applications
  • Integration of mobile technologies and cloud computing for social applications
  • Energy efficiency issues in designing socially-aware mobile systems
  • Mobile social sensing systems
  • Implementation of mobile technologies for psychological and health interventions
  • Integration of mobile and Web technologies for behavioral intervention
  • Deployment and testing of mobile systems for social analysis and applications
  • Data collection, anonymization and storage of social and behavioral data collected by means of mobile systems
  • Privacy issues related
  • Inference of high-level contexts beyond location and activity (e.g., intention, preference, attention, emotion)
  • Large-scale data collection and experiments with crowdsourcing
  • Deep personal analytics and self-quantization for persuasive mobile applications
  • Application of IoT technology for social science studies

Paper submissions will be limited to 10 pages (ACM SIGCHI Extended Abstracts Format [Word template, LaTeX template]). Please note that this is a different format corresponding to 6 pages in the traditional SIG proceedings template used for the main conference. We indeed welcome short papers (such as position/vision papers, and papers from social science backgrounds) of less than 10 pages in length. The submissions should not be anonymous. This means that the first page of the paper need to include the names and affiliations of the authors.

The proceedings of the workshop will appear in the UbiComp supplemental proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
