Call For Papers

Social Network for Mobility Services (SN4MS)
Workshop associated with
the IEEE International Conference on Internet of iThings 2012
November 20th-23rd, 2012
Besançon, France


The workshop entitled "Social Network for Mobile Services" (SN4MS) is
intended for a duration of one day (4-5 time-slots with breaks). 10 to
15 participants are expected. All papers accepted and presented at SN4MS
will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers. TPC members participate in
the peer-reviews of the papers and have the possibility of assigning
papers to external reviewers. In order to promote the workshop,
organisers, TPC members and publicity chairs will (i) announce the call
for paper at international renowned mailing lists, (ii) deploy a Web
site dedicated to the workshop, (iii) directly email relevant
institutions, projects, firms and activities. In addition, the
organisers will actively investigate/look for the possibility of
publishing the best papers in special issues. All the accepted papers
will be published in the Proceedings of the IEEE iThings conference.

* Objective, scope and contribution to SN4MS

The SN4MS workshop aims at sharing theoretical, experimental and
operational results in the conception and development of Social Network
based and Peer-to-peer oriented mobility services.Both Social Networks
based and Peer-to-peer oriented
applications will be addressed, such as, in particular, Dynamic and
Multi-scale Mobility Services based on wireless communications. Modern
smartphones and multi-communication embedded systems operating in
relation with peer-to-peer or centralized shared mobility services are
instrumental in the conception and development of innovative
applications. Shared mobility services include dynamic car-pooling, car
sharing, and real-time resource sharing. Therein, the social networks
involved go beyond the static use of an Internet application but also in
a dynamic and mobile Internet application, and even more in a
web-service oriented peer-to-peer application which may rely on embedded
and native smartphone applications.

The lessons learned while conceiving, developing and maintaining such
applications is that they are particularly exposed to environmental
perturbations, unreliable wireless telecommunication and high mobility

This poses extraordinary challenges both to the designers and to the
research community who attempt to provide real-time and multi-scale
social network based applications. Targeted applications may be sharing
mobility application in global and public transportation policy services
and systems. Then simulation, emulation and optimisation frameworks may
complete the tool set to address multi-scale mobility services, from
individual or collective human mobility to large-scale RF-Mems mobility.

Novel papers are invited both from academia and from industrial research
environments. Submissions should describe original theoretical or
empirical results, new techniques or in-depth user studies. on a series
of social network based mobility services topics converging towards
smart and mutualised mobility:

- Wireless smartphone or internet mobile enhanced organization,
optimization, simulation, emulation, tracking, real-time transportation
- Mobility, transport, resource planning and optimisation,
- Smart mobilities, robust and flexible cooperative mobility or services
- Simulation, emulation, real-world testbeds and commercial experiences
- Degradable wireless communication
- Privacy, confidentiality, awareness, discrete to continuous wireless
- Service usage and user assistance
- ICT positioning based services or applications
- peer-to-peer positioning services, peer-to-peer contextual services
- Innovative applications enabled by human mobility for other
disciplines, such as sociology or environmental sciences
- Inspiring mobile social applications and services (Social-On-The-Go)
- Mobile social networks for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
- Mobile applications for social sciences and large data collection
enabled by human mobility and crowd-sourcing

* Contribution related to to iThings:

Real-time, multi-scale, social network-based mobility services
constitute major applications of the Internet of Things and in
particular of coming peer-to-peer services and other ICT innovations. As
such, the SN4MS workshop spans across different communities (e.g.,
wireless positioning systems, multi-GNSS based contextual mobile
application for mobile, multi-scale and adaptive RF-MEMS, Real-Time and
Cooperative Processes, simulation/emulation/operation systems,
intelligent transportation systems) that are in relation with the
Internet of Things.
