Web of Things, Ubiquitous and Mobile Computing

Invitation and dates

We invite research contributions to the Web of Things, Ubiquitous, and Mobile Computing Track at the 28th edition of the Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be held May 13-17, 2019 in San Francisco, United States (www2019.thewebconf.org).

The Web of Things, Ubiquitous and Mobile Computing track solicits novel research contributions in the diverse area of systems, networking, applications and analysis related to the mobile web. This track seeks to build on the success of earlier editions started in 2014 and continued in the last four years. As in past years, there will be an emphasis on the use of mobile services, sensors, and application data to better understand user behavior and to advance applications of the Internet of Things, as well as pervasive and ubiquitous computing research, especially papers that integrate principled data modeling and reasoning to benefit areas of core social relevance like mobile health, transportation, energy, and urban planning.

The Web Conference has a tradition of supporting research with a near-term impact to industry, practitioners, and standards bodies. In keeping with such values, the Web of Things, Ubiquitous, and Mobile Computing Track welcomes submissions of interest not only to academic but also industrial researchers, with works that contribute to the understanding of mobile and pervasive systems through the inclusion of data analysis, experimental findings, novel implementations, deployment experiences, lessons learned, measurement studies, and usability observations. Given the increasing availability of measurements and datasets, this track encourages submissions that incorporate geo-social, urban, sensor and mobile data-driven modeling; as well as studies of the technical issues in accessing web content (from a browser or mobile application) using a mobile or low-power device.

Topics include (but are not limited to)

  • Contributions to mobile applications seeking to benefit such societal causes as smart city transportation, sustainability, or health/wellbeing of users
  • Novel mobile systems and applications such as mobile and wearable augmented reality
  • System, networking, and application issues related to Web-of-Things and Internet-of-Things
  • Low-cost web access devices and networking for emerging regions
  • Experiences in wearable, urban or sensory computing
  • Analysis and modeling of mobile data and services
  • Experiences with mobile applications, networks and systems
  • Usage evaluations of mobile and wireless systems
  • Practical deployment and case studies of Internet-of-Things platforms and applications
  • Infrastructure support for mobility and pervasive web
  • Data management for mobile and wireless applications
  • Applications and services for mobile users
  • Location and context-aware applications and services
  • Security and privacy of mobile users and their data
  • System-level energy management for mobile and wireless devices
  • Algorithms and protocols for power management and control
